The cold weather is here and that means the holidays are fast approaching. Each year, it seems, we want to shower our loved ones with the perfect gift, one they will take pride in and cherish for years to come. But finding the ideal gift for that special someone (we all have one) who is just so difficult to buy feels at best a chore and at worst an overwhelming frustration. Northwoods Humidors is here to help. If you’re looking for something to wow the cigar smoker in your life, whether new to the world of cigars or a well-seasoned aficionado, we have some great ideas for you.
What’s So Important About Storing Cigars In a Humidor?
Cigars, like fine wine, an excellent steak and your grandma’s fruitcake need to be aged a bit before they achieve the ultimate flavor. Smoke premium cigars need between one and two years to reach optimal flavor and many experts suggest up to five years for certain luxury stogies. But for mid-range cigars three months seems to be the acceptable time between acquiring your smoke and firing it up.
Aging your cigars means ensuring the preservation process is on point. That means you’ll need the ideal humidity and temperature as a constant in the environment in which those primo stogies are stored. Improperly stored cigars won’t age well and could degrade to the point they are rendered unshakable. This indignity can happen even with the use of a humidor and it’s certainly no way to treat your investment in excellent cigars.
So, well you might age your grandma’s fruitcake in the back of the pantry that’s no way to treat your cigars. Your cigar lover needs a way to properly store and maintain their collection. We have several humidors that are both stylish and maintain the ideal relative humidity and temperature to age and protect cigars. We also have some humidor accessories that facilitate the preservation and aging process as well. Let’s look at some of the gift ideas we’ve gathered for your special cigar enthusiast.
