    Humidity Problem!

    I just got my 100 count class top humidor and seasoned it. Placed my humicare humidity jar in with only about 10 cigars I got. My hygrometer at first read 70% which I was happy about but since then every day after the humidity drops about 1% and now it is down to 57%. How do I fix this problem?

    Major cigar problem PLEASE HELP

    First a little back story, I have enjoyed cigars off and on for around 20 years without knowing much about them ( a cigar was a cigar right ). Over the last five years I have started to get two to three cigars at a time, smoking them within a couple of days, nothing fancy, most would call...

    My humi is at 65 degrees and 70 humidity. I have noticed over the past week a few cigars have come unraveled when I smoke them. Just the wrapper seem to come loose not all just a few. Is this the cigar or do I need to adjust something??

    Humidor Problem

    So, I was given a new humidor a couple of months back and it's a very nice model which holds about 300-400. However, the seal around the lid is's very lose. There is a 'thunk' when the lid is closed...not a 'whoosh.' So, I tried some very thin window/door seal, but it turned out...

    Bead problem...

    All right.... What's the deal with these things? How often am I supposed to "recharge" them? Right now I'm having to do it every 7 or 8 days! I know I'm not doing anything wrong because it says on their website to spray them whenever they turn white. Now, I'm not jumping the gun...

    I have a Prometheus Parabola lighter and was wondering if anyone else has a problem with lighters crapping out in cold weather?? It seems that below 40 degrees the lighter wont work after a period of time outside.

    Humidor problem...

    I've recently noticed that my humidor RH is dropping. I've read where this is the time of year that it will do it but this is a relatively new humidor with a good supply of PPG and distilled water. My humidor went from 69% to 63% in about two weeks. The temp has fallen in the basement as well...

    Update on my "if you don't have a humidor" problem

    My humidor arrived today from JR and I'm now in the process of getting it ready. The digital hygrometer is having the salt test done as we speak. I've got the PPG in the humidifiers (the humidor came with two of them) and they're in the humidor. I'll wait until the RH reads, I'm guessing 70 +/-...

    I always seem to have a problem with . . .

    single barrel bourbons. They usually seem somewhat muted in flavor and one dimensional. I know that consistency is deemed an important constituent, and I know that taste tester's who pick out certain barrels for their uniqueness are looking for certain qualities of refinement, such as...
