    Question Cigar Restoration?

    I was talking to my brother tonight, and he told me a few months ago he was given a box of Royal Jamaican Gold Park Lane cigars. Since he doesn't smoke cigars, he just left the unsealed box lying around. My question is this: is it possible to restore a cigar that has been sitting like that for a few months, and are these cigars worth the trouble?

    Here's a link for the info on restoring. I would give it a shot you have nothing to lose, and it's not that much work.

    Thanks for the info. I'll have to rig something together, since I don't have an empty humi lying around for these steps. Also, does anyone know if these cigars are any good?

    The Royal Jamaican Gold Park Lane OR wasn't really a bad smoke, about half way between a mild to medium. They were actually made in Jamaica in the beginning.

    The 2nd and 3rd re-incarnation of the line, in my opinion, is not a good cigar at all.

    Wow...A trip down memory lane I remember the original, Jamaican made line. That was one of my first favorites when I was getting into cigars in the early 90's. Great smoke...That takes me back!

    Go for it, nothing to lose. I know people say that if they oils are lost they are a gonner, but I've brought back cigars that have been stored wrong for decades and some have been great smokes.
