If the cigars are frozen by the manufacturer already, why freeze them at home? It seems like that would be a good way to risk introducing moisture problems.

The way i look at it....cigars i ordered are going to be at least two to three days in warehouses, docks and trucks...all without ac. Living is south florida, no ac means temperatures over 90 degrees. So i do it as "free insurance". (make sure they are in an airtight bag or container)

Tact is for people who arenít witty enough to use sarcasm...

That makes sense. I suppose even though the odds are slim, it only takes a single hitchhiker to cause problems.

Have you seen what passes for a "new " car in Cuba?... what do you think the freezers look like?.. bet they're not 2018 sub zeros...

Once you've had a bout or two with little critters, you'll change your mind. Moisture can be easily regulated.

Having thousands of dollars in cigars turned into a Golden Coral for beetles isn't.

Because,,
1. Not ALL manufactures freeze.
2. There are many possible ways for cigars to be exposed to beetles after they have been treated at the factory.
I donít know the exact logistics for shipping but my thoughts are that at least some of the smaller factoryís would probably throw in together in order to fill a shipping container to help keep cost down, theyíre going to sit in customs for a while, then sit in a distributors warehouse for a bit and ultimately sit in a wholesalers warehouse with thousands of other cigars until they get to a retailers warehouse.
3. Itís insurance for my piece of mind.
When you have a few thousand $ worth of cigars and find a beetle hole trust me itís a devastating feeling.

If I see a stick that made a noob nic sick,I put it on my list as a must try. (UBC03)

We're airing on the conservative side.. lol

And there's WAY bigger collections on puff.

Remember, we didn't start this yesterday. When you ALWAYS buy more than you smoke, they tend to build up.

We won't get into the pipe and cellared tobacco collections a bunch of us have managed to fit into this hobby... lol

I understand now, thanks. Not too tough to assemble a few thousand dollars' worth of sticks over time, but to see it all go at once would be devastating!

Destroy all receipts immediately upon arrival. Never open order history on the sites you buy from.......It's a little game I play called denial.
