Do all cigars like the same conditions?

Generally, the 70/70 rule (70 degrees/70% RH) will apply to most cigars. However, we’ve noticed over the years that not all cigars like the same conditions, probably because of the wide variety of tobacco leaves and rolling techniques employed by different cigar manufacturers. For instance, while most of the cigars in our office are perfect at 70/70, Hoyo de Monterey (Cuban), Partagas (Cuban) and Macanudo (Jamaica) cigars feel and smoke dry at these levels and seem to like it better with the humidity at 72% RH. We keep these types of cigars in an area of our cigar cabinet where the humidity is slightly higher. Tastes vary. You should keep the cigars at the level you desire as long as it doesn’t impair proper aging.
