hi humidity cigars
so i,like many, have problems with keeping the RH in check. it bounces all over the place anywhere from 80 down to 60%. usually im gone a few days from home on weekends and this is when the humidity skyrockets bc the days before i try to adjust the low RH. so im wondering what do you guys think is the best way to dehumidify a "wet" cigar. 1. a fast way like sticking them in a dry box or 2. slowly try and lower the RH. im thinking a fast approach would maybe dry out the outer surfaces and the middle would stay wet and when checked they would seem ok even tho theres an unbalance. with number2, to me the sticks would dry uniformly and have a better chance of being a more even drying until the proper RH (whatever RH u prefer) is achieved. just random thinking since i can never get my humidor to balance and stay that way for more than 2 days. by way i use just the gel pack things that you dip in water for about 15 seconds in 20 count humidors. on side note, do you think a fluctuating RH does anything to the flavors of the cigar. for example is it possible that a a cigar thats gone thru lets say 3 big swings of RH that would normally be a mild creamy nutty cigar possibly start to have more spicier muddled flavors. just wondering bc of my problems and seems like each cigar (of same brand lets say 5 vegas golds) always seem to taste different. seems like they taste good rite outta the shipment box but once settled in my humidor and this fluctuating occurs they end up having different tastes (still wrappped in cello by way).
