Cigar Humidors OnlineLooking at cigar humidors online is a great way to start your search, narrow it down, and make the purchase. You can always go into your local cigar shop to get a good look at these handy cases, but many brick and mortar stores also sell their products online. Buying cigar humidors online may seem like a daunting task with so many to choose from, but no matter where you purchase it, there are some important things that you should look for no matter the size you choose.



This may be your first time looking at cigar humidors online, and there are many to choose from. Some are very simple and others are very extravagant with inlays and intricate glasswork. Some offer different options from multiple drawers, dividers, and multiple trays. There are many ways to customize them as well. You can have your family crest inlay on it, or perhaps you served in the military and would like the military branch emblem on it. Maybe you are an avid fisherman or love to play a round of eighteen holes, or you want something really unique on top. Really, the options are endless when it comes to customization.



When you are looking at cigar humidors online, it is important to take price into account. The more expensive ones usually are an indicator of better workmanship and wood quality. However, since indulging in these has become more and more popular, companies that manufacture them are starting to take notice, and they are starting to offer them at a less expensive price tag, while keeping the quality one would expect. Either way, you shouldn't look at purchasing one as a daunting task, instead, you need to look at it as an investment. Your smoke collection is an investment, and they were made to protect and preserve your investment. Many sticks that you will or have purchased are for future enjoyment. That means those sticks need to rest somewhere protected and in an environment that will only enhance the flavor.



That takes us to the manufacturing of these protective cases. No matter what the outside of yours looks like, that will not affect the rods inside. The construction however will. There are some basics one would need to know when purchasing your cigar humidors online. With the outside, the wood used should be at minimum one half inch thick on all sides and the bottom. The inside needs to be lined with Spanish Cedar, the reason being that it is the only cedar that will not alter the taste of the rods held inside. Other cedars, over time, will alter the flavor and thus change the flavor of the smoking experience.



The last and probably most important item is the actual purpose of these cases, which is to provide humidity to your collection. You want a humidor to provide approximately 70% relative humidity. By nature, this is the level of humidity tobacco is grown in. Thus, it keeps the tobacco in its natural climate. Having a reliable humidification device is vital. If it is too moist, the stick will likely become soggy. If it is too dry, the rods will get brittle. Having a reliable humidification device, checking the moisture of your cigars from time to time and making the proper adjustments will ensure that it does its job properly. After all, it is preserving your investment for years to come.
