Give them a SOFT squeeze. Are the a little spongy still? Or do they feel like the leaves of November?

I'd like to learn ore about this subject too.

I spend long periods of time on the road for work, and just checked my humi's and the RH is way down. Some of my cigars that don't have cello are a little crispy.

Also, I have was given some Cubans that sat exposed to the air for who knows how long? How do I nurse them back to good health?

There's an article about cigar restoration.

Not always. Sometimes it just means they are hard...

Some cigars are hard as rocks but still have a good draw. Cut one and do a draw test.
