You have a problem with the draw of every one you have ! What RH% do you keep them?

I know a common issue with the Cohiba Secretos is a near-impossible draw. I've experienced it, as have several others here on the board. It's very common if you Google it. I've had similar issues with some of the different Siglo vitolas, too. Siglo II's, mainly. I've read that letting them rest until your newborn starts 3rd grade loosens up the draw a bit and may enhance the flavor profile and experience, but my oldest CC's only have about a year or so on them. Like Kona, mine sit buried in the fridgidore. I take one out every so often, but I think I've given away more than I've smoked. I hope the Maduro 5 Secretos come around. I really like them... I just can't smoke them.
I had the same problem wiht my secreto I brought back in april (well only the first one), the other two I smoked had a very nice draw once I lowered my RH%. Just to add to this day they are the best Maduro stick I've smoked.
I hope they do come around brother, it would be a shame to loose all these nice sticks to a tight draw....
