Rotate the Cigars in Your Humidor
Humidors are how you should store your cigars. While your smokes may arrive in a classy box, you can’t keep them there for proper long term storage. Humidors provide the right amount of humidity and the right temperature to keep your cigars moist and allow them to age without diminishing in quality. It’s especially important to maintain your cigar storage solution during the winter months to counter the effects of hot, dry air inside your home. In addition to frequently checking the humidity and temperature, it’s also a good idea to change the postition of your cigars within the humidor.
Every two months, move those cigars to different positions within the system to ensure that all of your treasured smokes are getting the humidity they deserve. No matter how good your cigar storage system is, some areas are going to experience more humidity than others. This varies by humidor so it’s a good idea to move the cigars on the bottom to the top shelf and vice versa every two or three months for ideal storage. Otherwise, some cigars could be subject to uneven humidity, especially during the cold, dry winter months.
