Top Cigar Humidors
Did you know a cigar’s life is indefinite and depends very much on the way it is maintained and looked after.
This is where a humidor comes in . However the purpose of a humidor is not merely practical much like all accessories in the cigar world one’s choice of humidor is an expression of their personality and extension of their aesthetics and lifestyle .
At the most basic level humidor is an airtight container which may sustain and regulate the adequate temperature and humidity levels. This will ensure that your cigars are resting inside are stored at the optimal conditions. Such as somewhere between 65% to 70% relative humidity and nothing higher than 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
The most common materials used for humidors is wood specifically Spanish Cedar. Kiln dried Spanish Cedar offers exceptional moisture retaining properties which will provide an excellent resting place for all cigars.
More expensive humidors incorporate higher amounts of Spanish Cedar; however, every Cigar Star humidor will incorporate this material in its inner lining.
Another option which has gained popularity is the humble acrylic humidor not to mention its DIY counterpart the Tupperdor a humidor made from Tupperware.
Furthermore, these solutions can be more cost effective and slightly easier to maintain through the use of small humidifiers as opposed to sponge.
Firstly if you decide to go this route ensure that you use Boveda packs which are a two-way humidification humidifier pack. These lower cost options tend to sweat due to the absence of absorbent Spanish Cedar. Secondly, Lining the bottom of these containers with a thin strip of Cedar or a Spanish cedar flow rack or even a Spanish cedar divider such as those placed as dividers and boxes of cigars will prevent sweating from happening.
