Wondering if there is a certain brand of cigar that will stay fresher (won't dry out) for the longest period of time. I like to have cigars that don't give me such a specific time frame to smoke them within.

I also have a price range, so whatever information you guys can feed to me will help.

Hi wackytobacky,

 I'll state the obvious, at least it seems to me. I don't think a certain brand would stay fresher longer than another, but I would imagine the bigger ring gauge cigars would be the best bet. The bigger the ring gauge the better it would retain its moisture. Go for the thick ones!

Slowburn is right the bigger ring cigars would (under normal cricumstances) dry out the slowest, it wouldn't matter on the brand.  Question I have is why are you wanting to dry out a CC?  That wouldn't make sense as they taste best kept at the right humidity and temp, why would you take a chance of runining a pertfectly good cigar?

-----------------
smoking a quality cigar is like smoking a rack of ribs, you have to do it low and SLOW.

If stored properly, cigars will keep almost indefinitely.  I guess I don't know why you'd want fresh cigars, unless you like the taste of them young.

No cigar worth smoking can be kept out of the proper environment for more than a week or two and not run the risk of drying out to the point of being unsmokable.  When kept in the proper environment though, there really is no time limit.

Well, if not properly stored in a humidor with humidifier they will all dry out quickly.   There is no brand that stays "fresher" than the other and they all dry out if not properly cared for.  If you don't have a humidor, your best bet would be sticks packaged in "tubos".  It will slow the drying out process but eventually you will end up with a dry cigar.   There are plenty of topics in the forums here on how to care for stogies, many humidor ideas are low cost using household items so look around and post up if you have any questions!

I dont have a humidor, I used to, but it was lost along the way. I was planning on getting one as soon as I can manage to pick up a little extra money, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to smoke cigars either.

I used to smoke cigarettes so the cigars sre something I enjoy usually only on ocassion; or socially. I wanted a cigar that would be the best to hold onto for a while without being unsmokable.

Given your circumstances, you should either just buy a few cigars in tubes or has been recommeded elsewhere in this forum, keep your cigars in a tupperware box with a small sponge to maintain humidity.

I think the tupperware with the sponge suggestion is ingenious until you can get your hands on a humidor. The only other option is to only buy a couple at a time. Depending on how many/how often you plan on smoking, that might be the way to go.

Keep a humidor, amigo, and you won't have such problems!
