Default Tat Black storage

I have a box of Tat Black Tubos sitting in the vino. I've smoked one but really think they need a significant amount of time before they become a good smoke. What's the best way to store them? Cap on, cap off, out of the tube, as it? Please advise...

You'll get tons of opinions. I store them as they are shipped. Just check the tubes once in a while for mold.

How long do you plan to store them?

If years, I leave the caps on. If for a few months, I'll take the caps off. To smoke within a month or two, I take them out of the tube to let them dry out. They taste like crap when wet, imo. They need to dry out and be kept around 60% to get "the full monte".



But basically like the others said, it's personal preference and there is no wrong answer.

I had mine with the caps off for a few months and then put the caps back on. No real reason... it just felt right as I had heard they shipped wet.

Default Re: Tat Black storage

I'd store them in Vinnie's humi. Tat Blacks are everything I don't like all rolled up in one little package.
I'd store them out of the tubes, but that's me. It'd depend how wet they are, too.
I've never had a tubo that didn't mold. Even though mold doesn't turn me away from smoking a cigar, I'd rather not make any.

Default Re: Tat Black storage

From past experience with Tat blacks, I have seen a vast improvement with age. The tubos reminded me of the corona gordas fresh. Since I want these to age quicker, I removed 1/2 of the ones I bought from the tube. The other 1/2 I left in the tube. I figure in 6 months to a year I will try one of each to see how they are aging.

If you have six or eight - remove three from the tubes, keep three in the tubes. Best of both worlds.

Thanks for all the help. I think I'm going to do caps half-on and half-off and see how that works for me.

Cigars age more gracefully in tubos. Keep them the way they are.
