Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Seriously?!?!?!?
Can you point us to such material? If it is blue (or green), it is mold. No pics necessary for that. Cigar makers/retailers telling you that are trying to sell you their $hit.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Absolutely the first thing you should do. Also, make sure you have a digital hygrometer. The analog ones are just for show and are grossly inaccurate.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Lots of threads here on just that subject. Search on "humidor" in the thread title and that should get you started. If you want specific recommendations, you need to tell us your budget and what size...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Glad to have helped.
As with anything in life, there are no guarantees. But if I were in your situation, I wouldn't be worrying.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Some folks experience burn issues with RH at higher levels. If your cigars seem to you to be smoking fine, then don't sweat the RH. My concern would be that if your RH goes up even slightly, you will...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Most folks would be thrilled with 73 degrees.
If your RH is 69-71% and you are happy with the way your cigars smoke, that's fine, too. However, most people I know prefer their RH in the 60-65%...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Think before you post, Grasshopper.

It could be that he has special circumstances. Such as part of a US Embassy or maybe being below a legal age. So before jumping to conclusions and making...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

:confused:

Why is that? I've never heard of such limitations. Except, of course, the US mmbargo on Cuba.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

If your temp stays between 67 and 72 degrees, you are very fortunate. Can't get much more ideal temps than that.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

You're friend is full of baloney.
Cigars will not dry out in a day.
While some folks prefer 70% RH, many also prefer mid and even low 60s.
70% as the "ideal" RH is bogus.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

It's neither.
I would just leave the beads in there and let them do their job. It takes time. This hobby requires patience. Cigars are resilient. Many of us have cigars shipped from overseas with...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

If you put cigars in an empty humidor the RH will almost surely change. Unless by a stroke of luck the cigars and the empty humi have identical RH.

More often than not, RH in the humi will drop...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

I don't see spending money on a good humidor as a waste of money. On the contrary, it's an investment.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

I think it depends on what a "small humidor" is.
If it is a 75 count or less, I would just buy a new one.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

It's all a matter of personal preference.
And you'll find a wide variety of opinions on quality cutters. Palio and Xikar are two big names that make quality cutters. I'm partial to Palio.

For a humi that size it won't really matter. :2

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

Look around for threads discussing the pros and cons to various cutters. Many here, like me, prefer a Palio but there are many others that folks prefer.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

IMO, no correlation. You'll find good/bad draws with torpedos and parejos alike.

Keep smoking.
