we have a wide variety of humidors to choose from, since A humidor is an essential tool for any cigar smoker. Simply speaking, it is a storage device for your home or travel cigars. The following are guidelines to aid in your purchase and up keep of your humidor.
There are 2 main kinds of "travel" humidors. First of which is considered a "vest pocket" humidor. Spanish cedar lines the interior with a leather exterior. This case is perfect for a night on the town but not long term storage. The second humidor is commonly known as a travel case. This humidor has a hard plastic exterior and foam padded interior, with an air tight & water tight seal on the lid. Due to the fact that this case has a humidifying agent, it is perfect for an extended weekend or in the home year round.
Desk Top Humidor:
Ranging from a small 15 count to a much larger 300 count or more, there is a size, shape and color to fit any decor. Complete with a humidifer and a hydrometer a desk top humidor is a great choice for long term storage.
Humidity Level and Temperature
A constant humidity level is critical to keep your cigars in perfect condition. A realative humidity level in your humidor should be between 68 - 72%. Keep in mind that humidity levels go hand in hand with the temperture of 68-70 degrees. Although it sounds like a selling gimic, your humidor should be filled at least half full of cigars at all times in order for it to work properly.
What to look for in a humidor
The inside of your humidor should be lined with unfinished Spanish Cedar. If the humidor has trays or dividers, they should be removable to accomodate a varity of sizes of cigars. The hinges should be inset so that the lid can close tightly and evenly with no gaps visible. Some humidors are equipped with a decorative lock. Remember that this lock is more to keep others out of your prized cigars than provide a seal.
