Cigar cases, humidors, travel cases, whatever you call them, you want one for your smokes. They maintain a proper and constant humidity that prevents your valuable cigars from drying out or getting moist and moldy. Without one, you're just throwing cigar money into space.
Our inventory offers the finest products for holding your cigars. If you're in the market to protect your smokes, here are a few things to keep in mind.
The box should be perfectly squared. There should be no gaps in the seams as this can minimize the ability of the cigar cases to manage constant humidity.
Really well-made cigar cases are made of wood and have a solid wall thickness of at least five-eighths of an inch or greater.
They should have a tight seal, sound hinges and good corner joints.
They need to be able to withstand the stress of your environments which can change season to season, month to month and even day to day.
Cigars are gyroscopic by nature. This means if not stored properly, they will dry out or absorb moisture depending on the ecosystem. And they will do so until their contact matches the climate around them. This is why travel cases are so important to the lifespan of your smokes. They will create the ecosystem that lets your cigars sustain their freshness.
Poorly cared for cigars will not burn properly. They won't stay lit and will be difficult to draw on. They can produce rank odors and sour tastes.
Ideally, a cigar has to hold between 12 to 14 percent of its total weight in moisture and will not be able to do without a proper case.
Humidors come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. They're also available in a nice range of styles, meaning it can be as exotic or as simple as you prefer. They can come with convenient features like trays and dividers to organize your smokes. But, at the end of the viewing, you want your case to protect your cigars while giving you quick access to them.
