Considering taking a few ISOM sticks to a friend this weekend. I know he has a humidor with NC in it. Wondering how well a good Qt. ziplock bag would store a few with a small 62RH Boveda in it? By store I mean for a while possibly. Seems like it would be OK but wanted to run it by the geeks.. Thanks for any thoughts and putting up with my dumb questions !
late to the party, but at one time I had 400 to 500 cigars, some in boxes, some in small bags, and all in thick mil 2 gallon freezer bags with the double track closing feature, not the plastic zipper tab thing.
depending on how many were in a large freezer bag, I'd drop in some small 62 bovedas. often I'd drop one right in the box as well. Then I kept the freezer bags in the drawers of an empty dresser in a spare room where the temp was pretty much 65-68 year round, a bit cooler in the dresser.
from there, just went by feel, especially with cc's, and looked for just a bit of label slippage before smoking. Most of the time no issues, but prelight draw will tell you if it's ready.
not the hugest collection, but a pretty good sample size, and some were stored for a few years.
As Frank pointed out, use a thick zip lock! Those cheap zip locks are porous and will have an effect on the stored RH. I
I use hygrometers very little anymore, only as a reference when the RH is dropping in my humidor. Heartfelt beads keep my humidor amazingly perfect as far as storage goes. A travel humi will store cigars well for short periods without any humidifier. A Boveda in a travel humidor will last for quite some time
