I have been totally sizzled over something real bad that just happened to both my desktops with over 500 cigars in them and I am afraid I can not talk about it. This is not the reason that I am posting this but the result hoping to help others so something good might come from what happen to me I will post for help away from here. I thought if we all post here some of our words of wisdom about dos and don,ts in cigar storage and humidification we can help others to prevent them selves from making costly mistakes and or win big by learning here first from other's words of wisdom and have better tasting cigars to smoke and share. Please post your words of wisdom if you like, directing your comments to all instead of each other so all reading them can benefit using their own judgement and risk. Posting often as new stuff comes to mind can gather a gold mine of wealth in knowledge from all! So I will start first with what comes to mind easy right now,I am not an expert but I like to offer my 2 cents Nothing is better than a decent cigar that has been humidified properly for a long time and the proper humidity makes or brakes a cigar in taste!. Temperature is not as important as RH and as long as that is around 68 give or take a couple of points you are doing great unless you are growing beetles if you got CCs over 75-80F. You do not need more RH when cold or less when hot but being pro active and patient might stop you from screwing up. Too much air ventilation is much worse than none but the later is no good either if you are going to age for years. Plum can be verified with a magnifying glass(as a camera lens placed upside down till focused) and differentiated from white mold from the way it looks. If it has posts and mushroom heads is mold if not is bloom if white and in small spots all over Oily darker wrapper cigars age better. There is a lot of good RH solutions that can make your cigars taste bad,learn what they are. Never listen to a few common opinions on line and follow unless you verify with experts because when you think you know it all you might get surprised.... I know I am. Cigar maintenance is not hard but is easy to make big mistakes and that is the only way to learn......unless the experts at CP all have spoken and lots of attention was given.
