Got a PM from the OP. I usually don't do this but thought it necessary to the thread..

This is his quote

"Sorry, i smoke 25/35 cigars/cubans a week and add 8/10 boxes every month so even i'm kind of new (smoking since 201 to cigars i do kind of know how my D4's/Lusitanias/Churchills/etc should taste since i smoke them daily

I forgot to mention that i have different humidors and only the cigars from the mentioned humidor had these issues. The cubans i smoked this weekend from my other humidors were fine so no, its not palate issue or flue effected my taste.

I will keep my humidor shut the coming 2 weeks and try again. Hopefully they will be ok"

3.5 to 5 cigars put to the flame a day?
That's quite the habit. How does one let the palate relax and regenerate pushing that much smoke across?
Let's say you're awake a modest 16 hours a day. (8 hours sleep)
After breakfast and computer time in the morning and two more meals for the day I'll modestly subtract another 4 hours and bring us down to say 12 hrs of cigar time.
A very modest amount of time I'd say.........
12 divided by 3 isn't too bad....1 cigar every 4 hours
12 divided by 5 ??.....that's 1 cigar every 2.4 hours
Looking through the OP's choice of selection some of those would take me 2 hrs to smoke!
The numbers are hypothetical and based on pure speculation but I see a problem here.
Personally speaking I could not enjoy the actual act of engagement that much each and every day.
I do this hobby for a relaxing and personal enjoyment of "me" time.
Even if I were fully retired and had time ala carte I don't see any enjoyment at that level.
Just saying..........

Please remember. The OP has no way of defending or explaining anything. So keep the comments instructive.

The man came with a genuine question asking for legitimate answers to legitimate questions. So keep the answers going and the opinions to a minimum.

Thanks,
Dino

OP: I know you can't respond, but here's what I'd do. Throw those puppies back in the humidor and don't worry about opening the door. If you've got a closet-sized setup, it's probably too large for Boveda packs, but figure out some way to regulate your RH without having to be hands-on multiple times a day. You'll never get them stable at the right RH if you're propping doors open and relying on timing the fresh air to get where you want. You need some system (and there are a dozen ways to do it) that will give you peace of mind when you aren't looking.

Once you nail that down, leave the cigars alone for a couple of weeks to let them settle down and see how they taste after some rest. If you want something you can smoke while the rest of your sizable stash is re-acclimating, get a tupper full of cigars (maybe several of them if you're really going through 100+ per month) with a few Boveda packs and smoke on those for a while.

Don't rush the process, and don't fret because your collection got off the planned RH for a bit. My experience has been that as long as you catch it and correct it quickly, cigars will come back from most "oops" moments. And 50%, though it's not my preference, is not going to kill your cigars. Especially if they only hit 50% RH for a day or two.

The OP thought he needed to explain how he got that number, so I'll pay his response he pmd me.. sounds logical. Not to me but to some a pack and a half of cigarettes isn't logical either.. lol .. plus he wanted to thanks yunz jaggoffs..

"Thanks for all the reply's. I will leave my humidor shut the coming weeks at a steady 63% and 22C. I use cigar heaven for humidification which always been able to keep things steady.

Some questioned my smoking habits/frequenty. Well, making assumptions is never wise so here is my daily smoking routine:

Wake up at 06:00 with coffee and smoke a 30min/45min cigar (partagas short/R&Y nr3/open junior for example). Breakfast at 09:00 with again a 30min/45min cigar. After lunch a 1 hour robusto or corona. After dinner a double corona or something in the 2 hour range. In the weekends i sometimes add a 5th in the late afternoon so thats 25/35 cigars a week So hope that clear things up.

Thanks again everyone for the avise received. Hope everthing works out."

As several others have posted, there is no way that leaving these at 50% for a week could have ruined them. Humidity just doesn't leave cigars that fast particularly stacked in a wooden humidor like that and it takes even longer for the oils to go. If they are indeed no smoking well, any of them, that must be up to some cause other than your attempt at drying.

If it were me I'd get enough Sistema tupperdors to hold them all and toss in a couple of 62% Bovedas, then leave them for a couple of months. If they don't smoke well after that I'd spend some time puzzling over what else they might have been exposed to.

Just spitballing here, wondering if maybe the OP got ahold of some fresh rolls that are/were going through a sick period? If a new batch was putting off ammonia that could be enough to throw of the taste on the rest.

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