I'm not expert on this but I can give a guess. Tobacco needs humidity to not dry out, AZ is a dry state, and that could be why. This may work, try keeping your Tangiers in a humididor if you have one. See if it works and let us know.

I thought the whole idea was to have the tobacco be at the same humidity as the environment you smoke it in, otherwise it will go into "shock" when you smoke it.

it could be a combination of things including elevation. It affects many aspects of many things. Though combustion, fire, and smoke shouldn't be greatly affected. Do what john and Mr.B says, the tobacco is probably just too try. When it doubt, add honey or corn syrup(closest thing you can get to glycerine without really looking hard).

do not add anything to tangiers...good way to ruin it

the problem occurs if the tobacco goes from a low humidity to a high one...then it has to take time to adjust to it. the other way around doesn't do anything.

if youre having problems still, just call eric.

good way to ruin a humidor, not trying to be rude at all john, but it really will just kill it since the flavor will probably stick more than you would want.

same idea just with out spending money on the humidor is to just use an air tight container and get some of the humidity packs/gel/beads you can get for humidors
