Storage question for cigars individually manufactured in plastic wrap

Hey guys. I'm really excited about these Padron 1926 80th Anniversary cigars I got in.

The question is do I leave them in the individual wrappers when I put the box in humidor?

Also it's said crack the box and put in humidor. Does that mean open the seal and close it again. Or actually leave it kinda cracked a quarter inch?

Still learning and have developed an expensive taste.

Leave em the way God made 'em. Cello on and in the box. The cell and box are both breathable.

My #1 favorite. Padron's are made to be smoked not aged that's why they are so expensive, ie. aged tobacco. They will likely loss some of they're strength and flavor if you plan on keeping them for years.

Cello on or off is personal preference. If it was a cigar worth aging I'd take the cello off and close the box to keep the goodness in. If you plan on touching, moving or storing them with other milder cigars leave them in cello for protection.

My first and only box (not Padrons) I dropped the tab so it rested on the latch and left them like that during the settle down period. After that close it up.

I always prop open the box of a new purchase for a month or two so it can introduce itself to everyone else in the cooler.
Fortunately, they all speak the same language.

Thanks for the tip. I just cracked open that box of Carrillos I got the other day so it can talk to the other guys.

How about an unopened box of cigarillos wrapped in the cello or whatever. Do I need to throw the box in he humidor? Or just keep in cool dark place?

I used to be a cello off guy, but then I noticed AF Opus and Anejo would mellow out naked. The sticks that had their cello would not only keep their flavor but
actually get "richer". I don't know if they have a little "fermentation" going on. Now I keep cello on.

I personally always leave the cellos on for the previously listed reasons. However, if a cigar has a cedar sleeve, I remove it out of the fear of potential mold.

Cello on, less risk of damage. I'm a "fondler". Constantly digging around for the cigar I want right now.
