Does anyone know the history behind Maduro wrappers? I don't know much about Habanos cigars, but it seems that a lot of NC cigars have a Maduro wrapper variety, while Habanos cigars (from the little I know about them) don't have many Maduro varieties.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record...I'll also echo the Heartfelt beads opinion. They're solid in keeping the humidity where it needs to be. You can check out their options and see what amount of beads you'd need for a humidor of your size.
There's also digital hygrometers you can...
Thanks for the info...yeah, they were both from the same source. I'd just gotten them in the mail and they came with a humdipak in the bag, guess they got too humid from that. Had some free time and couldn't wait.
In the future I suppose I should be letting them set for a few days or a week...
Not sure how to describe this, but I had a couple of smokes today where the wrapper wasn't burning down with the filler tobacco. It happened a few times throught each smoke. Did I light them incorrectly, were they too humid, bad construction or something else?
I broke out the lighter and lit...
Haha...nice, must have been tasty.
For me, it was the first Ashton VSG I had. Myself and a couple of buddies made a weekend trip to the casino, picked up some smokes at the (overpriced) shop and chilled at the bar for a while.
I've only been smoking for a couple of months, but so far the only cigar I haven't been willing to finish was a Casa Torano Maduro, bleh. I've had other maduros that I enjoyed, but that one didn't set too well with me, had to put it down before the first inch was done.
