Just was going to pop in and leave my first comment in the thread as a new humidor owner. I was just going to ask about the Boveda bags to replace my sponge humidifier that came with the humidor. I have read the info on the product and wondered what experiences people have had with them? I was going to order a couple bags but wondered if I should go ahead and get a box of 12 bags?

Thanks!

Hi Charles! I'm all over the botl.org site, Friends of Habanos and Cigars Australia. Boveda is always my one word reply when people ask for humidification advice. It's an idiot proof system.

This must be one of THE MOST debated topics in the cigar industry. That along with what humidity you should keep your cigars at. Please allow me to answer both questions.
Ahem...
1. It doesn't matter.
2. Whatever you prefer.

Yes, it's that easy and simple.

What he said. Me, personally, I just leave it as I got it. I couldn't be bothered taking off 25 wrappers when buying a box of cigars. I just throw the box in the humidor and Bob's you're uncle.

The important question is why in the world would you smoke a flavoured cigar? All that tobacco ruined by a chemical flavour to help the taste. I prefer a cigar the way nature intended. Just leaf.

Heading to the local Serious Cigars store here after work to snag the Boveda humidification packs to replace the stock unit. Id like to get the hygrometer to read right at 70, as opposed to 65-67 that its reading at right now.

edit: and need to unpackaged every cigar.

Or PG solution right? I was going to check and see if the store had Pyrolene Glycol (sp?) solution because I was reading about the greatness of that product for expelling fungus and keeping the box proper.

Yeah well this one is only for us in tx. Lol jk. But I haven't had a Monte Cristo before so I'm certainly excited to try.

Also, snagged a 72% boveda pack while I was there. Should be perfect for my setup.

Anything Arturo Fuente. Moderately priced. I would assume down there the prices are better, plus you are getting a fresher cigar for the price! They have cigars ranging from like $3-4/stick and up.

But there are other good brands. Avo, Macunudo, Cusano. Hell, you're in DR, ask around, they probably know the best ones!
