Stogie Tips & Tricks

So, I got some cigars in the mail. They sat on my front porch for a few hours BAKING in the hot sun. It was like 90 degrees and 100% humidity that day. The cigars were HOT to touch! I removed them from the boxes. I then removed the humidity packs from the bags. I let them sit in my house for several hours, bringing them down to 70 degrees. Then I put them in the fridge for about 12 hours, then the freezer for the same, then back in the fridge for 12 hours. Then, I will let them sit in the humidor (temperature controlled at 65/65 humidity) for at least a week before I smoke them.

I had a cigar with a slight tear in the wrapper. Smoke was coming out of it. I took a cigar from the ashtray, cut it in a good spot. I removed the wrapper, licking it good. Then I applied it to the tear, licking it some more. One problem down. Then the cigar had a void. So I took some of the filler from the cigar I had taken apart earlier, rolled it up, and plugged the hole, twice. While not the greatest smoking experiment, if you are determined, you can fix it!
