Saw the discussion of this from a couple years ago, but lately it’s been happening to me (actually, to my cigars) a lot. I’d guess at least five of my last 14 or 15 sticks have tunneled to once extent or another. All different brands. Anybody else having that much trouble? Manufacturers losing their touch? All the experienced rollers suddenly retire?

    Welcome Larry. You have a very interesting profile.

    You joined way back, almost the beginning of the forum, as an apparent newbie.
    You asked one question.

    Nearly 14 years later,....... you return to ask one more question.

    Have you been lurking here 14 years?
    Did you smoke cigars uninterrupted these14 years?
    What's your story, your cigar experience?
    A good place to tell us about yourself would be "the newbie welcoming thread".
    (A thread that wasn't even created until 8 years after your first post.)

    I'm so glad Bob posts a lot of what I'm thinking. B)

    Don't let the wife know what you spend on guns, ammo or cigars.

    14 years? Wow. Time do fly.
    Sort of like the little kid who didn't say a word until he was ten and then complained about dinner. Everything's been pretty good until this annoying problem.

    My long-term humidors are at 70%. I move the sticks into a desktop at 65% and let them sit for a week and a half or more before burning. Let tonight's sit out for an hour or so before lighting.

    Any issues with the AVO?

    I myself have had alot of issues with cigars tunneling lately, taste like crap, recalibrated hygrometers etc, even re-seasoned humidors, Been smoking for 15 years never had the issues I have had last few months, Beginning to wonder on quality of the cigars from cigar.com

    It’s called user error!
