I replace the wet piece of toilet paper once a week, and then repeat the procedure. However Im not certain if I should open the packs of cigs or what... I just let them sit in the almost vacuumed zip lock bag with a wet piece of paper (if there is almost no air how does the paper keep them moist? also the moisture doesnt get to the cigs because my packs are closed,shoild that be correct?) Im just a little paranoid because I genuinely am not sure if I will be able to tell if they go stale..

You said the Dunhills you smoked were fresh. Why question success?

Believe me, you'll know if they're stale. Even before you light up, the feel of the cigarette would give you a clue.

They were smooth, it's normal for Dunhills to be smooth, they are fine cut. I myself am no experienced smoker, in fact I have very little experience, but am always trying to gain knowledge. Im just paranoid that I will think its the nicotine kick rather than assume that they are stale. I am not sure if I have the"feel" for a cig, but I surely didn't enjoy the Marlboros, now Im sceptical whether they were stale or whether it was just their chemical taste..

If they're stale, they'll burn hot and harsh, and will be tasteless.

By the feel, a stale cigarette will feel rigid, because the tobacco is dried out, you might even hear a slight crackle if you roll it between your fingers, and some tobacco might fall out from the end.

And didn't you say you found the Marlboros tasted "disgusting" even before your experiment at keeping them fresh?

Oh I see, yes the Marlboros did taste bad, I dont remember if they were harsh, but they burnt pretty fast and had a bad aftertaste. My focus is on keeping Dunhills fresh, they have the sealable foil so I'm not sure if the moisture is getting to them.

Im just looking for advice on keepimg these cigs fresh for a month, a month and a half.

This is a separate thought and more from a store perspective, but, in recent trips to local Maverik store near where I work over the past month, I have encountered situations where I see empty carton upon cartons of brands that have been recently stocked onto the shelf and the more and more frequently that I stop by this store at lunch, they often ask me when I checkout if I need anything else and even though I'm usually well set on stock, there are times that I will pickup an extra pack or two of Marlboro Red 100's, because I know for the most part that the dates are fresh and have been recently stocked.

Sometimes, it's the small things that matter.
