Best Online Retailer to Get Fresh (not dry) Sticks?

Does anyone have advice on the best online retailer for purchasing cigars. I bought a bunch through famous smoke a while back and they were mailed in a poorly sealed box and all of them were (to one extent or another) a little dried out. Most were still fine to smoke (but I could tell the difference) but at least a few were nearly ruined. I've noticed that the couple of times I've bought a cigar on a trip (and then not had the opportunity to smoke it) and then put it in a checked bag that it was pretty dried out by the time I got home. I'm assuming the temp/altitude does that so maybe that's the case with air shipping.

Anyway, I was curious if anyone here had any good pointers on buying cigars online. Based on my last experience I definitely wouldn't buy anything good through Famous Smoke again. If any of them take steps to humidify the packaging, I would be very interested in that.

Thanks!

Just ordered some from Mike's Cigars. They put the little water pillows in the packaging. I always plan on getting them into the humi for some length of time anyway, but I've never had any problems with Mike's.

Me either and I've done business with Mikes for 40 years.

Can't say I've had those problems with FSS/Cigar Monster, but I also buy frequently from TampaHumidor.com, AtlanticCigar.com (I've got a VIP membership there), CigarsInternational.com, and a handful of other sites depending on sales.

Tampa Humi is here in town and has a wonderful selection in store and on line.

cigars international and their sister site, CigarBid are great. You can often pick up

5 packs and boxes for a percentage of their cost on Cigars International at CigarBid

with thoughtful bidding and patience.

Holt's. I've ordered several times from them: free shipping and cigars are always in good shape.

Cigarbid.com is the Devil’s site. You can easily get addicted to bidding and buying. I have found several good deals there. Cigars International is where I order the majority of my online cigars. I have been using them for years without a problem.

Huh, I've had good luck with Famous. SeriousCigars.com ships with humidification. Holt's is good. Cigar.com is hit and miss.

Cigars international and Famous cigars have always been fine with me. Whenever I order over the internet, once they arrive, they go into the humidity for a few days to get to the level I prefer. Cbid as mentioned above is a great site when they have what you're looking for. I'm just across The Delaware River from Holt's so I can't vouch for their internet sales but both their stores are excellent.
