    Default Dry Boxing....?


    0 Not allowed!

    Do any fellow brothers 'dry box' their smokes? and if so is this a regularly done thing, or only on certain occasions?

    The reason I ask; i had a couple of the same cigars recently - I punched the cap on the first one and it slightly split the cap, so I repaired it with some glue and tossed it into my dry box to save for another day. I punched the cap on the other one and smoked it that night. The cigar was okay nothing too offensive, little flavour transition, but an okay acceptable mild smoke.

    Ten days later when tidying up my collection one night, I came across the other cigar I had actually forgotten was there. I smoked that cigar and wow! it was like a completely different cigar - still a lovely mild smoke, but the transitions and flavour profile were so much better than the first one I smoked.

    I rarely do it as Iím not much of one for planning ahead but I probably should more. Only done it a few times but it does seem to really help bring out the flavours in a cigar

    Dry boxing as in drying it out for a couple of days (lower RH) before smoking?

    I’ve never done it although I hear good things regularly. What do you guys use, would an old cigar box work?

    I use a plastic travel humidor with cedar in the bottom - has capacity for 10 cigars. Iíve heard people using old cigar boxes - but a plastic sealable lunch box would work just as well

    Yep. I dry box about 90% of the time. Sometimes 24 hours, but have been known to forget about them!
    For me they smoke much better and and then flavours are more distinguishable.
    I make sure that any larger RGís are always done.

    I think forgetting about them for up to two weeks they should still be fine - at least thatís what I tell myself

    Helps the cigars to shed excess moisture and improves the burn and flavour - for me personally comparing like to like it has been accidental ie forgetting I had put the cigars there in the first place. But going forward Iím going to keep a few in there ahead of smoking them - means some degree of planning ahead
