I like to smoke Lonsdale. I smoke at Thompson as my everyday cigar. Cohibas are my favorite. Usually don't finish cigar in an evening. I save them in glass tubes. Relighting I find them too moist. My question is how should I be saving my partial cigars? I have a small leather bag that I keep my lighters Cutters various accoutrement with a cigar or two. To sit outside at my table. I'd like to keep my partials in the same bag.

    Amos is right.... if you put popcorn in the glass tube it sucks up the moisture.

    If you must save it and light it back up later, leave it out in the open.
    Don't put it in anything that will essentially infuse all that nasty burnt taste into it.

    Why are you not finishing the cigar?
    Time? If so, smoke a smaller cigar.
    Way more enjoyment out of them.

    Yeah, if you must, purge the cigar by blowing out, cut below the ash with a large guillotine cutter, then leave it outside.

    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    On the off chance that this is a real guy (and to prove I'm a better person than you clowns) let me provide a real answer.

    No cigar is ever going to taste the same after a relight. Depending on how long you are looking to save them, there are some things you can do. If you are wanting to finish it the next day, clip the cherry off of the end, and blow backwards through the cigar to clear all of the old smoke. Leave it open to the air, and when relighting, go slow. this will minimize the funky flavors. It will be a little bit dryer, but after 1 day it won't be a huge difference. There really is no good way to save one longer than that. If you find yourself often only smoking half of a cigar, look into getting a smaller size. The smaller ring gauges use a higher wrapper to filler ration, and the wrapper is the most flavorful leaf. You will likely enjoy the taste of the smaller sizes more without having to worry about saving a dirty butt.

    Before I retired and before the pandemic, I would teach three days a week at our Rocky Mount campus, about a half hour away. I would smoke half a cigar on the way over and half on the way back.

    I have a Savor cigar tube for saving cigars. It is a thick walled tube that puts the cigar out right away. I've never left it over night, just during the day while I taught, but I've never had a problem with bitterness or moisture. Maybe snuffing it out immediately does the trick.
