What is your prefered RH for your humidor? I live in a climate where the average RH is 65-65%. I am using Boveda packs and a not sure if I want 65 or 69%. I currently have just a couple of dozen sticks about 5 of which are Cubans.

60-65 for ISOM. 63-68 for NC's. I'm not too nuts about it, but I do like to see the RH lower for Cubans

Thanks guys. I think since I have some ISOM’s as well as none that 65% seems to d a fair middle ground for both. I appreciate your input

Should be fine.  Try not to be too OCD about RH, it will drive you nuts.  Also, those cigars I sent you are good to go they have been sitting at 65% for over 6 months so feel free to smoke away
