Cigar Shipping Tips

I got in a bunch of additional lottery submissions, I’ll be doing another video update in a few days so you all can see the whole stash. In the meantime I need to give you some shipping tips. Today one came in shredded. There were 4 in the baggy and the other three were ok, so this might be a case of improper humidification, the cigar being too dry then shipped with a water pillow. Sometimes the pillows can quickly overhumidify a dry stick and they explode such as this did.

When shipping cigars, it’s ok to use baggies as long as they are packed tight enough so they don’t roll around enough to be damaged. If however you have had any stored too dry, do not include any humification, just ship them as-is.

Use a small box. If you already have a box you can ship them 1st class for under $3 just about anywhere. I also like the flat rate priority mail boxes, they are about $5 good to go.

Stuff the box enough so nothing moves around and has some cushion if need be. Protect the cigars from moving around in short.

This is the first damage so I’m going to use it for example and substitute one of my own sticks for the entry. In the future damaged sticks can not be submitted.
