Default The Race from Cuba to Humidor (cigar cigars humidor)


Lo All

ASC and cigar newbie here. Sorry if this is an oft asked
question....checked out google groups though and came up blank.

Visting Cuba soon, planning on buying a couple of boxes of Havana's
finest. Problem is after Cuba, I've going thru a few other countries,
and will not make it home for at least 3 to 4 weeks. From what I've
read, this is too long for the cigars to sit outside a humidor without
drying out.

Should I maybe limit myself to cigars that are sold in tubes (they seem
to travel better), or has someone else got a better idea ?? Or am I
wayyyy off base in the speed with which I need to get the 'gars into a
humidor ??

Cheers
Greg

Hi Greg

Whats the relative humidity in the other countries?? You could bring large
Ziploc bags along with you and seal the cigars in them. Get a digital
hygrometer too to keep an eye on the inside of the bag. When I first started
out all I used to keep my cigars in was an old cigar box sealed in a Ziploc
bag, when the humidity went below 65% I used to wet a paper towel wring it
out and put that in the bag also. I would do this before bed and take out
the paper towel when I got up the next morning. Used the method for a year
or so without a problem. Good Luck and have fun

I think it depends on the country.

I'd worry more about US Customs.

I agree. Bag 'em with a wet sponge.

?!

I can't imagine any conditions where this is sound advice. Normally I'm
all ears to the Baron, but I have to think that perhaps this response
was a bit rushed...?

it actually works in a pinch. I used it coming back from Argentina a few
years ago.

Hey Ted

I think I will change your name to Stogie II

It works,try it next time you are on the road. I did it for a year while I
traveled around the country for a machine tool co.

I'd be suprised if they get me given I'm not going thru the US :-)
