In my relatively short experience purchasing CC, I’ve noticed all seem to be over humidified and have swelling and splitting issues in the last third. 
I might go ahead and sample the Medio Siglo just to see where they are at.

Thanks for your input!

Yes I would say all vendors store at more than 62%, with FOH generally being on the lower end, and some other vendors being very high. There was a post where someone mentioned taking boxes from various vendors and putting them in tupperware with no boveda and a hygrometer and measuring what happened, and the results reflected that.

You're very welcome. My personal choice is waiting 60-90 days wherever possible. That way when I smoke, I can weigh the experience of the smoke based on its environmental factors as I intend them to be, and not have to wonder if some of the experience of the cigar is being impacted by stress from conditions during transit. As someone that is new to the world of Habanos, this allows me to, in my opinion, gauge the experience with less doubt.

RAT OCT 20 Siglo VI from 24:24 clearance.

One broken foot. Was going to sacrifice one to the ROTT gods anyways, guess this one is it.

They're like women, always get the rough ones out of the way first! Lol

Last box of my QdO Coronas purchasing purge. These have the lightest wrappers, just like my ‘18 box, so this box will be next in the firing line!


I recall you posting 2 a month or so back. Settle down and let some others buy

How are these to sample ROTT, once rested at 62% for a week or two?  I know they are very young.

it's not ROTT if it has rested for a more than 24h 😂

on a more serious note, in my personal experience, all arrivals from FOH smoke pretty well in the first 2 days. after that, they go to sleep and the flavour becomes bland for a couple of weeks before waking up again

It's not so much that the cigars are young, they have jet lag. I have more experience with boxes than tubes but the 30 day rule is a rule for a reason. The cigars have been in a commercial air cargo hold for a long flight at least twice, and probably a few more times than that depending on the source, in their short lives. It's a lousy environment for cigars and giving them a chance for a full recovery can make all the difference. If ya gotta smoke one soon take it out of the tube and put it in your humidor until Memorial Day. Smoke something less dear than those Cohibas in the meantime. I don't think you'll regret it. My $.02

I would resist the urge ...you’ll likely regret it .....both of those cigars being as expensive and quality as they are need time
