People buy cigars and respect the fact they must be kept in a humidor to maximize flavor, etc. However, the same people turn up thier nose when you talk about acclimating hookah tobacco.. *shrug*
but you can take a cigar out of a 70/70 humidor into something that is much closer to 50%/75*, or what ever and you dont have issues other than the occasional crack or the like, you dont have a cigar that tastes horrible just cause the humidity is a little different.

the reason i have heard is that the ingredients, while wet, are not much water

i am still skeptical
