By now, you probably know where you should store your cigars: in a humidor or coolidor.  Where should you NOT keep them, however?  This guide will tell you the spots to avoid.

It is no secret that the hobby of cigar smoking is a rather expensive one.  Most of us don’t mind, however, since it really is a great hobby to partake in for many reasons.  So, keeping the expense of cigar smoking in mind, wouldn’t it make sense to protect your investment as best as possible?  Unless you have money to burn, you don’t want to waste your cigars.  That is why ensuring they are properly stored is a must.

If you are new to smoking, you might be thinking to yourself, “As long as I keep my cigars indoors and out of the car, they should be fine, right?”  Wrong!  Depending on where you live, temperatures can fluctuate, and so can humidity.  For these reasons, proper storage is essential.

What can happen if I do not store my cigars properly?

Proper cigar storage isn’t something invented just for the hell of it.  It wasn’t devised by manufacturers of humidors just to scare you into buying their products.  There are actual problems that do occur from the improper storage of cigars.  Here are just some examples:

·       The wrapper could crack or break. 

·       The cigar’s flavor may become bitter or harsh. 

·       It could burn too fast or unevenly. 

·       It may burn out frequently and need constant re-lights. 

·       Mold could appear.

·       Small holes could appear due to beetle infestation.

You see that list?  Do you really want to deal with those problems?  Especially something like tobacco beetle infestation?  Didn’t think so.  You want to get the most out of your cigars, and that will be quite difficult if you encounter some of the aforementioned problems.

You have to remember where cigars come from.  They mostly come from tropical places like Central America where high humidity is commonplace.  Even if you live in a place like South Florida, conditions will fluctuate, and this is not ideal for your cigars.
