Cigar Care: How To Rehydrate A Cigar || Occasionally, in spite of all your efforts to care for your cigars, they dry out and you need to bring them back to life. Maybe you left a stick in your car or a golf bag over the summer. Or maybe you neglected to maintain your humidor. No problem. They can be brought back as long as 1) the wrapper hasn't cracked, and 2) the cigars have not become so dry that all the oils have evaporated from the tobaccos. Now that we’re entering the winter season, it’s a perfect time nurse these neglected cigars back to health because the process of rehydrating cigars can take weeks or months, so it’s important not to rush it. .
First, re-prime your humidor with a moist, but not wet, cloth. Distilled or bottled water is fine, just don’t use tap water. Next, recharge your humidification element with distilled water or throw in a fresh humidity pack. The humidor will gradually return to the optimal 73-74% relative humidity and the cigars will follow suit.
Warning: Do not over humidify in the hope of reviving dry cigars quicker. You may “shock” them into expanding too quickly, resulting in cracked wrappers. Rehydration will happen gradually, not all at once.
It takes from one to three weeks to rehumidify a cigar, depending on ring gauge and how dry your cigar is. It is not enough to just humidify the wrapper; moisture must reach back into the innermost leaves of the filler. Again, this takes time. A cigar that hasn’t been properly rejuvenated will smoke hot with an unpleasant, bitter taste --so be patient. Karma has you covered on all your humidor needs. Next time you’re in the lounge, ask about our cigar care and humidor maintenance products.

From Padron Website: The Anniversary Series line was introduced in 1994 to commemorate our company's 30th anniversary. All tobacco used in this limited production series is aged for four years, creating a smooth and complex flavor. In honor of the age-old Cuban tradition of box pressing cigars, the 1964 Anniversary line was introduced as a box-pressed series. For the protection of our customers we have introduced measures to safeguard against counterfeiting with a specially designed double band featuring an individually numbered guarantee label. ⠀
Tasting notes: sweet chocolate, coffee, earth, pepper, a bit of leather at the start & cocoa & hazelnut at the last third. The flavors are smooth and balanced. The finish is a bit dry and toasty so a glass of ice water comes in handy. This is a full bodied cigar so I advise having it on a full stomach.⠀
A really delicious cigar but a bit on the expensive side so 1 or 2 in the humidor is a good idea for special occasions.⠀
Happy everyone & do enjoy a Cigar for His Glory!⠀

Link in BIO Via @cigaraficionado ! Wise Man Maduro ⃣ Cigar of the Year!!! “Remember the name Nick Melillo, (@nickragua ) for his star is rising among consumers and cigar fans. He used to be a behind-the-scenes guy at Drew Estate, but in 2015, he went off on his own to form Foundation Cigar Co. in his native Connecticut. He now has a growing portfolio of brands, none better than this dark and earthy smoke called The Wise Man Maduro. While there’s certainly no shortage of dark, box-pressed cigars loaded with Nicaraguan tobacco, we were particularly impressed with this one.
The Wise Man Maduro Robusto has all the qualities of a stand-out cigar: assertive without being aggressive, full-bodied without being too strong and interesting from first puff to last. It’s a flavorful blend that oscillates between the sweet and the savory. Cocoa and vanilla notes, for example, play off the tobacco’s meaty, beef-stock qualities, all integrated by an ever-present earthiness.
The cigar is a blend of Nicaraguan binder, Nicaraguan filler (both grown by Aganorsa, the company that makes the cigar for Melillo) and Mexican San Andrés wrapper.
If you look closely at the band, you’ll see the words “El Güegüense” printed in smaller letters. That’s because The Wise Man Maduro is an offshoot of the original El Güegüense, which loosely translates to “the wise man” and is named for a folkloric dance in Nicaragua. It’s a nice nod to the culture, but not a name that American smokers can necessarily relate to. For the maduro version, Melillo put the English name up front, causing far less confusion in the humidor. Wise move. Jah Live Anbesa Negusa Negast Igziabher .
