Now I will admit that some of my boxes smell better than others. My wineadore scent is bland, and my 20gal. tupperadore smells great.
I use only KL and every storage compartment is equipped with a very generous amount of spanish cedar.

The litter will absorb odors and then redistribute them as it delivers evaporative moisture. Also not good.

This is what happened.^

I think its definitely the redistribution of flavor, every stick smells the same and carries that plasticy silica taste.. maybe its part RH but it's RH with a flavor from the crystals .. bc the crystals smell the same as the sticks do...
@splattttttt i wasn't trying to be a dick, i was just reiterating why it smells the way it does.. and yes the sticks (foot) never seem to smell as good as they do from the store.

Re: Bad Kitty

No worries Korey.
My comment wasn't implying any such notions at all... Just left me confused, that's all. All's good here.

Do you store your cigars in their cello?

Korey, confusing Jack is not necessarily a difficult task. But, he's our Jack and we love him all the same

Can you tell me how long it took you to have this happen? Are we talking months or years?

Reason I'm asking is I have a coolidor with KL and Boveda packs...Just wondering if i should remove the KL.
