Cigars should be stored in conducive environments where the right moisture is controlled with the use of a box known as humidor. The ideal temperature for storing cigars is around 700F , which is similar to the tropical temperature the cigar were rolled at. At this temperature the moisture level is stabilized thus stopping emission and absorption of moisture and the oil in the different tobacco leaves inside the cigar which slowly blend together. After harvesting of tobacco leaves it is dried for thirty days so as to remove chlorophyll, at these point the cigar will begin aging similar to what wine does. All the cigar manufacturers can agree that cigars do age with time and end up having better flavor than they had when leaving the company for shipping or when stored in humidors in our homes.The aging of cigar do add better flavor as time goes by may it be during shipment or storage in humidors in the house, these is a fact that any cigar producer can confirm to be true.
A humidor requires some solutions to preserve the cigars for a conducive environment and also one would require a thermometer and a hygrometer to start with. For large humidors an electronic humidifier is needed. Similarly having the right solution is as vital as having the electronic humidifier. For the purpose of maintaining the perfect humidity levels it is recommended not to use the distilled water and the cigars may by spoiled by it. A humidification solution of distilled water and propylene solution should be used.
The are two main reasons why we should use a humidification solution than pure distilled water. At times when the humidor is dry propylene solution releases moisture that was initially absorbed. However, when there is too much humidity the propylene solution glycol absorbs the excess moisture keeping the environment stable.
Also the propylene solution helps in the inhibition of mold in the humidor, in situations where humidors are not well maintained the mold may grow. For good quality cigars mold must be controlled if their quality is to be retained. It is very difficult to deal with mold in a humidor so it should be take care of to keep the mold away.
Tobacco contains nicotine which happens to be a component of cigars and come along with some advantages. Vital rewards of tobacco are; social, increasing soil fertility and spiritual believes and enhance better eye sight. There could be a relationship between better brain functionality of smoking of nicotine.
To have perfect and easy reading it is essential to have a digital hygrometer. A humidor should be checked after fourteen days or so but more frequently if you are located in a dry area or the humidity seal is not working properly.
