To screw or not to screw ... he he

Like the title? Sorry, no lascivious links here! Just a question from a newbie.

I've ordered a 30 count box of Punch Royal Coronation maduro cigars and they are in individual metal tubes. I will be putting them in the humidor but what should I do:

1. Just put them in as they are.
2. Loosen the tube's cap 1/2 turn for each one.
3. Remove the cap but leave them in the tube.
4. Remove them from the tubes but leave them in the box.
5. Put them in the humidor out of tube and out of box.

For me it depends on how long or quick you want to age them... when I take the cello off (and I do on almost everything) I believe things tend to age a bit quicker... with the cello on, a bit slower.

However I always leave all of the Tubos in the tube just like they were shipped. :tu
 
Thanks to all for the advice ... I'll be sure to take them out of the tubes ASAP ... just kidding. :chk In the tubes they'll stay.

Here is what I do: I remove the caps when I first get the cigars and place them in the humidor. After a week or 2, I then screw the caps back on. This way, they have 65% humidity in them. I don't think it makes a diffrence though.
