What is a Cigar Humidor? What Are the Different Types?

What is a Cigar Humidor? What Are the Different Types?

Proper cigar storage is essential for the health care of your cigars. Cigars require precisely controlled temperature and moisture levels to keep them fresh for long-term storage, and without a humidor, you just won’t be able to keep them at the right humidity. Extreme weather conditions will reduce their life span to less than a week, leaving you with a dry stick. An easy way to prevent this is having proper storage such as a humidor. Just like cigars, there are different types of humidors varying in price and necessities. Cigar Cabinet, Spanish Cedar, Savoy, Jars, and Napoleon humidors are just a couple of prime examples. Let’s take a closer look at each one of them and see which one suits you best!

Spanish Cedar Humidor

Spanish cedar is considered the highest quality of wood that can be used within a humidor. Incorporating these components into the interior of your cigar humidor has several benefits, including:

  • Supports the cigar ageing process.
  • Provides protection from tobacco worms through the cedar’s special odoriferous quality.
  • High humidity absorption capacity to ensure a stable climate
