New box of cigars problem solved

Q. If I have a new box of cigars, should I leave them in the box or remove them from the box and place them in a humidor?
Thanks,
– Felix Gonzalez

A. My advice would be to place them in the humidor, preferably without the cello wrappers, or mostly without them. By placing them in the humidor, they will age better, allowing the tobaccos to continue to “marry” and mellow.

I say “mostly” b/c this way, if you take some out with you to play golf, a herf, wherever, you know the wrappers will be protected. If you have a good, protective travel case, it shouldn’t matter, and you can home age them all without the cellos.
