I think they may be over-hydrated, too wet. Either that or you changed the storage atmosphere too quickly, from too wet to too dry, or vice-versa. Get a digital hygrometer, even if you use those Boveda gizmos. Worth it, considering what cigars cost.

(Hey, Arky, there's a place for cigar postings on this forum. You don't have to use "The Roundtable." Think it's called "The Humidor" or something.)

In my experience the odds are that split and unraveling cigars won't draw. You'll be sucking air through the "cracks," as it were. Save 'em for a pipe blend, if that's the case. This isn't the worst thing that can happen to cigars--bugs are the worst thing that can happen to cigars. Cigars are a pain in the ass.

Yup. Chop ‘em and add ‘em to a pipe blend...5% to 10% ratio by weight. If you want, just use the wrapper leaf as that’s where all the flavor is...up to you.
