It's through trial and error and many dollars spent.  When I was very fuzzy about aging and knowing how they develop this is what I used to do:

 

1.  I usually buy at least a couple of boxes of something I like.  

2.  I smoke one cigar from the box.  

3.  Write a tasting note.  

4.  Store them boxes.  My humidor is constantly at low 60's, temp and humidity.

5.  After a few months, Repeat steps 2 to 4. 

 

I however can't do that anymore.  Too much work and too much boxes to try.  It is however a fun and enlightening activity.

I'm currently running a 40 stick humidor at 70/70-72......Too much humidity/heat?

For cuban cigar, I like it in the low 60's.  The cigar is a little drier and easier to keep lit.  Taste better as well.  70 temp is fine.  I like to keep it lower for long term storage.

Last full day of Advanced Accounting, decided to unwind with a small LFD double ligero and a glass of Vu Ja De's new offering Before heading inside for the only TV shows my wife and I actually keep up with.

The cigar is a little tough to keep lit, probably due to its position in the humidor, but I'm hoping it improves. So far I haven't gotten the power these are somewhat notorious for, but the flavor seems to build constantly, so I'm holding out hope.

if you actually care, get them Trini Robusto T's, and cabinets of Bolivar PC's before they are gone forever. Or keep those two for you and buy friends a box of Shorts.

Let's say $150-$200 for a box.

Thanks for the recs Partagas. Hmm haven't seen any cabinets of the Bolivar petit coronas. I'm assuming the boxes are of the same stock?

BPC in cab of 50 will be over your budget.  Never cared for them myself.  Actually, never cared for Bolivar except for the gold medals.  I would take Party Shorts over BPC.  YMMV.

Had a few cigars this week. A few Padron 1964s, an H Upmann H -2000 and (currently) a Cusano 18 maduro. Having this on a little break from studying for finals with a G&T and Chuck Palahnuik's Tell All. For the price, this Cusano holds up well against a lot f the more expensive and critically acclaimed things I smoke (exempting, of course, the Padron Anniversarios).
