Let It Out!

Smoking a cigar is a matter of relaxation, tasting, and enjoyment.  In order to maximize that experience you need to provide the cigar with the optimal circumstances for its talents to emerge.  One critical detail is to not smoke the cigar too quickly.   Beyond smoking at a relaxed pace to keep the tobacco burning with a cool, rich smoke, it’s also useful to keep the body of the cigar clean to allow your palate to experience the purest smoke possible.

The Advantages of a Large Humidor

Adirondack Reclaimed Wood 100 Cigar Humidor
Humidors come in all shapes and sizes and are made from all manner of things.  You can make a humidor out of a plastic storage container, a cooler, an antique cabinet, or any other form of container that you can get to seal fairly tightly.  Or you can just buy a humidor.
While humidors come in all sizes, they are easier to manage when they are of a minimum size of say 100 cigars.  You can get by with a 50 cigar humidor, but you’ll soon find yourself running out of space and wishing you could build out an addition.
