Cigars 101

How long can I leave my cigars in their factory boxes?

A: Sounds like we have something in common. Did you see my blog on my “Tupperdor”?

To answer your question more directly, cigars will remain fresh in their factory boxes and cellos for around 3-weeks, even a month, as long as you subject them to normal temperatures and do not leave them where sunlight can get to them. A cool dark space is preferred. If you’ve already opened the boxes, that’s fine, but if you want to really insure the cigars will last until they can be moved, pick up a box of Boveda 69% humidity packs. One pack will last up to 3 months.

I live in Florida and the tempeture carts day to day. My humidifier reads 70 -72 humidity but the temp goes a little higher and makes the cigars a little dry and brittle how can I fix this
