Fine cigars that dry out, become brittle, the wrapping leaf cracks, and eventually the entire cigar crumbles to fall apart, not to mention the taste of a dry cigar is inferior. What is the solution to this problem? A quality humidor of course.
The idea of a humidor is to protect fine cigars from exposure to the air by using an airtight container that has the perfect humidity. Storing cigars in a humidor with the correct level of humidity makes sure the cigars do not dry out and at the same time that they do not get too soggy and therefore become un-smokable. Put the humidor in a place with the proper temperature. Good humidors have a hygrometer gauge to measure the water vapor level, so it is easy to keep the cigars at 70% humidity, which is the perfect amount.
Besides simply storing cigars in the perfect humid environment, there is also the option of placing them in small oak barrels that contain flavorings, such as the flavor of a favorite whiskey or spirit. Cigars absorb the flavor after staying in these small oak barrels for a few days. After that, keep them in a regular humidor to maintain their freshness. Many cigar lovers enjoy the enhanced taste of such beautifully flavored cigars.
Humidors are a must-have device for any serious cigar smoker. The humidor designs are attractive when placed for display on a desk or a shelf. There are many choices of humidors made from rare woods with eye-catching exterior finishes. All good humidors have a cedar wood lining that is best for proper storage.
Humidors come in various sizes that hold a small amount of cigars to those that hold more than one box of cigars. Our best ones are modestly priced. They cost less than a regular box of fine cigars, so it is foolish not to use a humidor to take care of a valuable cigar collection. Humidors make unique cigar gifts.
If you happen to be a billionaire with the taste for the finest cigars in the world that sell for over $50,000 apiece you had better have a special sold-gold, diamond-encrusted humidor to keep them in. For the rest of us, these beautiful humidors in our collection are perfect for your needs.
