  1. I have a box of PL Montecarlo's on the way to me because I was curious about trying them. Do they age like the PLPC's? How much time do you put the Montecarlo's down for before you feel like they have hit their stride?

    Some Tuppador questions

    I have been looking for a good way to store my cigars and someone told me "Tupperware, Boveda 65%, done." So I have read through 7 pages of threads in this Humidor Tutorial section as well as other articles and videos online. I'm left with a few questions. 1) Boveda recommends 2 60g packs for every 50 cigars your humidor can hold. A piece of Tupperware isn't rated by the numbers of cigars it can hold, it's rated by volume. It's also an airtight environment, unlike a humidor which would naturally leak humidity. Assuming a 7 liter Tupperware container how many 60g (or 320g) Boveda packs would you recommend? 2) A video tutorial called tupperdors "high maintenance" because "as cigars age they release gases which need to be vented from the tupperdor by opening it once a week". Is this true? Nowhere else does anyone mention this. 3) Is 65% the preferred humidity for Cuban cigars in a tupperdor? Reading through Ray's posts and watching his video on moisture content, temperature and rH I understand this to be a big limitation of the tupperdor. I have a cooler I'm probably going to put my tupperdor in to reduce the impact of temperature swings. My question is, without the temperature control of going to a wineador, would it be better to go with a 62% humidity pack as more of a buffer? If I double the amount of Boveda packs I need for the given volume can I essentially brute force the percent moisture content in the cigars? 4) My last question is do I have to periodically rotate my cigars or can i just leave them label side up for years at a time? Thanks

    Hi from Boston

    I'm just getting into cigars. I don't really know anything about them. I flew to Cuba for work last year and bought a buddy of mine some Cohiba's. I didn't even know what I was buying. For some reason he has it in his head that Cohiba's are the best but he doesn't know anything about cigars either. Cohiba's seem really strong to me. I think whenever he gets around to smoking them he is gonna puke because he isn't use to smoking cigars. He just had a baby boy so I ordered him a box of MONTECRISTO - NO.2's. From what I've read and heard from people, thats a really nice cigar with good flavor that won't overpower him. Sorry for rambling on so much.
