Yes and no. Not intentionally but have kept some cigars in a tupperdor for up to 6 months. Use boveda packs. Cigars do improve with age but have not tried any longer. Would imagine if you wrap in cedar sleeves like from cigar tubes this could improve your success. With boveda packs the humidity never changes so that is a plus. Would like to see if anyone else has insight on this.
Have a few tupperdors going some with isoms and some with nc, with cigars that have been in there 3+ years that smoke perfectly. I use a piece of thin cigar box cedar cut to fit on the bottom and one on top with a boveda 67 or 65. Open about once a month to take from or inspect. Never any issues.
Like others said, aging is about time, RH, and temperature. Tupperdor is the perfect environment for maintaining RH because it's airtight and it's basically autopilot. But if you're really talking about aging, you should think about temperature control too. Unless you have a place in your house that maintains 70 degrees, you should think about getting a wineador for it's temperature control capabilities.
I don't age my cigars for the specific purpose of aging them. I have my tupperdor for two things: resting cigars and overflow/bulk storage. Works great for both. Sure there is accidental aging going on by default, but that's not intended. I don't drive myself crazy about temp and RH, anywhere between 63-70RH is good for me and if the temp gets up to 75 degrees or so I don't sweat that either.
