Storing those precious cuban cigars

Apr 16, 2008
If you are a real cigar aficionado, than please protect your stogies in a humidor. If you don't have one, they are available in a lot of places and you can find a decent on on the internet too. Cigars (Cubans's are made perfect!) although built very nicely, they can't stand the fury that nature throws at them. Especially extreme temperature whether hot or cold or even water damage can ruin a perfect little Cuban cigar.

Humidors are also used to 'enhance' your current Cuban cigars by aging them. Yes you can 'age' certain cigars just like wine. In fact, the whole process is called Cuban tobacco fermentation. Just like how it works for wine, aging a cigar can greatly enhance its flavors. The 'filler' tobacco used for the Cohiba cigar is actually aged for 5 years before being used. Plus all Cuban Cigars are hand rolled, except a very few exceptions such as the Puritos or 'Minis'. Why would you not want to protect something that is so valuable?

So what kind of humidor should you select for your cigar? It all depends on how many Cohiba's you plan to store and where you plan to store them. There are 3 main different types of humidors: Table, Room and Portable.Table humidors are something that you would want to leave in your living room as its the most stylish and also the most expensive kind. It might as well be considered a piece of quality furniture in your living room. These kind of humidors can store thousands of cigars and a minimum of maybe 200 or so. If you are rich, and like smoking Cohibas, most likely this is in your house right now. A room humidor on the other hand is the largest of the three and is used in cigar showrooms or a large vicinity that is most likely in the business of selling cigars. These are well kept and maintained rooms that are monitored constantly my automatic and pre-set gauges. A portable humidor is what most individual purchase. It is small, affordable and it works. A lot of people get custom designed humidors to reflect their love and appreciation for the Cohiba cigars. The only downside is that these humidors are fairly small and can only hold 10 - 15 cigars.

The lesson here kids is take care of your Cigars. Whether they are Cohibas, Montecristos or Romeos, you need a special little friend called a humidor to place your little friends in. You know they are worth it!
