Cigar sages, do you have any suggestions on storage of the Tabac Manil Semois leaf that's been rolled into cigar or pipe bouchons? Specifically, what level of humidity should I keep these at? Thank you in advance for your advice!

Tabac Manil Semois cigars are so dry that they break up if you so much as handle them with kids gloves 😡

I bought 2 boxes and they were in such a poor shape on arrival that I shredded a third of them to smoke as pipe tobacco.

I store the rest at 65% humidity.
I also store my few Indonesian leaf (dry) cigars at the same humidity.

Many thanks for the help everyone. A bit confusing how to handle these since they arrive nearly crumbling and as dry as the Manil pipe tobacco, which seems to store and smoke plenty nice that way. I will shoot for 65% as suggested and keep an eye on them. Cheers.
