Dried out cigars can be restored in cigar humidors. It is a long process. Time and allowing the cigar to hydrate is the key to saving your cigar. Begin by placing the cigars in a sealed box to allow them to breathe. After a couple of days introduce a partially filled humidifier. Allow the cigars to re-adjust to the new environment for a few more days. Continue to do this for a few weeks until the cigars are restored. Be careful and patient. If you humidify them too quickly the cigars will go into "shock" and the outer tobacco wrapper can crack or break.
