An RE Friday with @Nate Chu C&C for a Saturday morning with this Sir Winston from 03. Today is going to be great if this cigar is anything to judge it by. What a super smooth star

C&C ‘14 especiales. Fantastic start to the day C&C with a Monte 4 C&C time today with a Perla picked up from 24:24

From last night. Not Pictured: BRE Connie 1.. Great flavors.  Original Release Picadores: ULE NOV-14..  Flawless  RAT NOV-19 Dip 2. From 24:24 Not as salty as the dark wrappers.

Welcome to the world of CCs! The cold sucks, but it doesn't necessarily cause burn issues. Burn issues will be mainly due to humidity of the cigar (generally too high), humidity where you are smoking (funny enough less of a problem in the cold), and construction of the cigar (something you can't do much about).

What is your storage humidity? You want to be maybe 62%-68%, and people on this forum will say 62-65%. Non Cuban cigars are generally stored higher.

Thanks for the feedback! These just came off the truck about 5 days ago, and were shipped with a 69 boveda. When the were delivered, I switched them to a small cooler with a 65 boveda. I couldn’t wait any longer and had to try one!

I do have a sensor push on order for setting up a larger coolider for a few months till I get cabinet set up in new home.

A lot of vendors store at 69% and ship with 69% boveda. I find they're often ok right off the truck but they can be too humid. You'll need 30+ days to fix it through proper storage. But I can't blame you for smoking some sooner :)

I could not agree more. As I stay in hotels since last October,I store all my cigars with 69% boveda in a sealed plastic bag.
Recently I found all my cigars went off easily. I leave the cigars in ambient conditions (24 degree 52% humidity) for 20-30 minutes. It generally gets better.
Some of my friends told me this is called decant a cigar, whatever.

Nice. I just had a box of the RA No. 2’s arrive but I’ll have to have patience before lighting one up.

I've found that the 69% boveda always translates to 64 - 67 RH in my desktop humidor... I looked around and confirmed this in other sources and I believe Boveda states that it can be under by 5 points in RH.. so I figure 69 is going to give me an average of 65... but that's just me ...

Yeah it depends on shipping time and if they vacuum seal. It won't hold 69% in the package. But their warehouses are at 69% too.

RH will be 5 lower in a desktop, only a few lower in a cooler, pretty dead on in Tupperware.
