Storage of cigars is done in a container referred to as a cigar humidor to maintain favorable environment. A cigar should be stored in a temperature that it was manufactured at about 700 F which is similar to the tropical temperature. 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. Just like wine do age with tine do cigars once the tobacco is harvested it is dried in 30 days so as to purify it from chlorophyll. 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.
To maintain the environment in your humidor will require the use of several cigar solutions, you will definitely need a thermometer and a hygrometer to start with. For a large humidors you will need an electronic humidifier. However, the solution used in the humidifier is just as important as having the electronic device. 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. When the humidor becomes dry the propylene glycol releases absorbed moisture into the area. When there is much moisture in the area the propylene solution absorbs the excessive moisture the stability.
When humidors are not taken care of mold may grow, these is also dealt with using the propylene solution. Mold is not good for fine cigars and will make then unsuitable. Once mold has a foothold in a humidor it can be very hard to get rid of so protecting against it from the outset is important, humidification solution also will keep mold getting a foothold in a humidor.
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. A research has revealed a connection between nicotine and increasing brain functioning .
A digital hygrometer is more precise compare to an analog one so for the purpose of accurate readings a digital one is advisable. 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.
