What are Cigar Humidors Used For?
If you are new to the joys of cigar smoking, you may be wondering why cigar aficionados use cigar humidors.
Humidors are used to store and protect cigars so that they are kept at their peak flavor.
Many cigar aficionados claim that the ideal temperature for storing cigars is 70 degrees F. Any lower temperature will tend to age the cigar, rather than keep it at a constant level.
Humidors are not meant to age, but rather to preserve the integrity, flavor, and color of the cigar.
What should you look for when purchasing cigar humidors?
The good humidor should close completely, with a tight fitting lid that will keep the cigars well kept from the elements and prevent any exchange of moisture.
Seams should be smooth and well fitted for cigars. Cedar, especially Spanish cedar is ideal for the interior of the humidor.
Of course, make certain your brand of cigars fits well into any humidor you are considering purchasing.
Keep your cigars in top condition for the ultimate enjoyment !
