Choosing a Humidor And Caring For Your Cigars

February 26, 2013 by admin

A Humidor can be a great gift for the cigar-loving gramps! Choosing the right humidor is key. Do you want to display your cigars when friends come over without having to lift the lid? Do you live in a very dry environment like Colorado, or perhaps one more humid like Florida? Do you prefer a traditional small humidor, or perhaps a large multi-drawer humidor with many shelves for your precious cigars? Do you plan to store a lot of cigars, or perhaps just a few? These are all important questions to consider when choosing a humidor. We’ll show you some of our favorites below. Some even come with FREE Cigars!

If you are storing treasured stogies, it makes sense to add a back-up hygrometer to your humidor at some point. You don’t want to have a single point of failure when it comes to maintaining the humidity of your stogies. For this reason, we recommend adding one of the below digital hygrometers to the inside of your humidor so that you can be sure you are maintaining the desired humidity between 60-70%:

DIGITAL TEMPERATURE GAUGE AND HYGROMETER 2-PACK
You know how important proper temperature and humidity are to the preservation of a cigar. Now, thanks to the miracle of space-age micro circuitry, you have the opportunity to constantly monitor the performance of your humidor. The thinnest hygrometer on the market allows you to slip it into your humidor to make sure that the optimum temperature of 68-70° F and 65-70% RH are constantly maintained. Don’t let your valuable cigars be destroyed by the elements.

XIKAR ROUND HYGROMETER
Xikar Digital Hygrometer, Round Hygrometer, Measures 1.75″ diameter round, Fits in the same hole as every old analog in nearly every humidor made, Accurate to +/- 2% at 70% humidity, Registers temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius, One step calibration button, Min/ Max feature

If you live in a dry climate (Like Colorado), we recommend you use a humidity additive inside of your humidor in order to properly care for your cigars. Such an additive like the ones offered below can maintain humidity within the humidor at a more consistent rate than by using water alone. Science and technology has come a long way since the days when old men used to use apple cores and water soaked rags in their humidors. If you are having trouble maintaining the proper humidity within your humidor, try one of these solutions:

BOVEDA HUMIDIPAK 72% 20 PACK HUMIDITY PA
Revolutionary Boveda Humidipacks, Help achieve and maintain the humidity levels, Lasts up to 60 days, 2-way humidity control system, Disposable Humidipaks, Easily transforms your humidor into a true cigar-aging vault
