Default Cigarillos should be in the humi, or no?

I just picked up a whole bunch of small smokes, mostly in tins.

I thought I read somewhere that cigarillos are dry-cured (?) which means they don't require or benefit from controlled humidity. I can't seem to find said info now.

Can anyone confirm or deny? TIA

I would follow the example of giving a dead man an enema. If it doesn't help, it sure as heck can't hurt.

Yeah, I know the humidor won't hurt 'em. But I'm wondering if it's just as well to keep them in my backpack.

AFAIK, it depends on the brand/cigar. I have had both dry-cured and normal ones. The tin was never a definitive indicator.

That's my understanding as well. At the old shop we had some that we left out by the register and some kept in the humi. I don't know of any good way to tell which is which, but I don't believe the "dry" cigars are hurt by being in the humidor. Other than some that I had been told were dry, I keep everything in my humidor. Although I only have a few on hand at a time, so it's more a place to put them

Default Re: Cigarillos should be in the humi, or no?

Though not exclusively, many dry-cured cigars (in tins or otherwise) are of European manufacture. Small tinned cigars from Caribbean or Central American sources are not.

This is at least my understanding. I keep short smokes almost constantly, and always in my humidors. At one point I also kept some dry-cured ones around, e.g. Villigers, as I thought they would be more "forgiving" as I toted them with me for emergency quickies. These I stored in a coolerdor, but felt no qualms about sticking one or two in my shirt pocket for hours.

In short, to answer your question . . . ???

I've had those tins of Hoyo de Montereys before and left them sitting out of the humi for a few days, and found them dried out when I got back to them, so I'd say keep them like regular cigars.

I would think any type of tobacco left out in low humidity will dry out, cigarettes dry out pretty quickly even so... I'd go the enema route as well

cigarillos tend to burn hot and imho keeping them in a humidor tempers that.

I left a few out that became quite brittle. Now they're in a humi.
