Storing Your Cigars

* Aging a cigar is a matter of personal taste. Some prefer fresh cigars, those rolled within the last six months Ė others will age their cigars a full five to six years before smoking them. Whatever you decide, be it 20 years or more, cigars should be kept in a controlled environment, between 70 to 72 degrees with 70 percent humidity.

* If different types of cigars are stored together in the same humidor, they may take on each othersí flavors. It can get expensive to purchase humidors for each of your favorite brands/types, so make sure your humidor has dividers.

* If you find that youíve purchased more cigars than your humidor can handle, store them in your freezer in a plastic bag or container with a lid. Two to three days before the planned smoke move them to your refrigeratorís crisper bin. An additional day in a humidor will be best.

* A dry cigar will burn too hot and ruin its flavor. To re-moisturize, place your cigars in a humidor that hasnít been charged in the last week for two or three days. Fill the humidification system half way and let them lay for a week before fully charging the humidity regulator; this will prevent them from getting too moist too quickly
