How to Best Store Your Cigars
Alright, so you’ve spent a considerable amount of time and money acquiring the perfect cigars. Now, you’ve got to figure out how to protect your investment. The obvious next step will be to purchase a humidor. Humidors for cigars provide the ideal levels of humidity and temperature for storing and aging cigars.

This type of container does not provide enough air flow for your cigars to breathe. The lack of air circulation can cause mold or other bacteria to grow on your cigars.
Likewise, many newbies automatically assume that they can store their cigars in Ziploc bags. In general, you can store your cigars in this type of bag for a couple of weeks without any negative side effects, but it is still not the preferred method of storing cigars. You are still encouraged to invest in a humidor. It will be an investment that will serve you for a lifetime.

Once it has been seasoned, you will need to be careful how you store your cigars inside of the humidor. You must make sure that you do not overfill your humidor as it will not provide enough air circulation and flow throughout the humidor.
Finally, a humidor for your cigars can also be used to age them, which will only improve their flavor and taste over time. Offer your cigars the utmost in protection by investing in your own humidor today!
