A humidor is a great way to keep your cigars from drying out and becoming stale. The ideal humidity for cigars is between 65-70%, so it’s important that you keep them in the right environment. If you don’t have enough room in your home or apartment, consider getting one of our portable humidors. They are easy to use and will keep your favorite cigars safe from damage caused by fluctuations in temperature and humidity levels.
A humidor is a container that helps keep cigars fresh. It's used to store cigars and other tobacco products, and it is made of wood or Spanish cedar.
A humidor can be any size at all, but usually they are small enough to fit on a desk or dresser.
Most of them have glass doors so you can see your cigars inside (some have lids instead), but some don't have a door at all—they're just open storage containers for keeping tobacco in a temperature-controlled environment safe from bugs and other pests that may eat the leaves if left unprotected.
There are many different types of humidors, from small travel cases to massive furniture pieces. The size and shape you choose will depend on your needs. If you are just starting out, a small travel case is a great choice because it is easy to carry and store. You can also buy smaller wooden boxes that are more decorative than practical if you just want something for your home that looks nice but won't hold much in the way of cigars.
A big part of choosing the right size for your needs is making sure it will fit all the cigars you want to keep in it at once. Some people opt for larger humidors because they want to be able to store their entire collection at once, while others start with modest-sized cabinets or boxes and upgrade later when they feel like they've reached their limit (or when they win the lottery). If there's one thing we've learned from our years selling them, however: there's no such thing as having too many cigars!
To ensure your cigars are properly humidified, you'll want to check for the following three things:
Condition of the cigars
You may need multiple humidors depending on your cigar storage needs.
Separating different types of cigars: While it is possible to store all your cigars in one humidor, you may want to use a second, smaller humidor for special-edition or limited edition cigars that you don't want mingling with other blends. These can be kept in their own humidity-controlled environment to ensure that they do not get ruined by the heat or moisture from other types of tobacco.
Separating cigars you are aging: Some people choose to age certain kinds of tobacco and smoke others immediately, which means having separate humidors for each type. Aging will improve the taste and aroma of your cigars over time; however, this process requires careful maintenance so that it doesn't go too far and ruin them altogether!
Sharing with others: If you're sharing your collection with friends or family members who appreciate good quality sticks as much as yourself then consider splitting up some space between yourselves so everyone has room for their own collection without overcrowding any one place unnecessarily (and perhaps even creating unwanted cross-contamination).
