Need help from practiced people!
Hello friends! I've smoked many cigars, straight from cigar store "big room" humidors , but I never had a cigar humidor myself, and this is the first time. I bought 20 cigars from cigar.com and humidor, but the thing is they were lying 3 months in my friends house, though he seasoned the humidor, it became 74% and put the cigars in it. After a 20 days, humidity droped to 60%, hi did it again, it came back to 70%. In short, I received the cigars, and humidity inside was 56% and it was like that 30 days. Fortunately nothing bad happened, the cold weather saved the cigars, they just got hard, like a rubber, but wrappers look beautiful, smells perfect and nothing is crucked. In one old local thread, people said, you should not put cigars immediately into seasoned 70-65% humidor, but rise 5% every week up to 70%, or cigars will burst because filler absorb humidity faster then wrapper. So whats your choice, rise slowly or go straight, since I dont have Chrystal humidifer, I have Green Foam humidifier, so I cant imagine how to rise humidity 5% with it.????? Inventory is Desktop Humidor Analog and Digital Hygrometers Green Foam Humidifier Thanky you Artur
