Cigar Storage Methods
If you are a regular cigar smoker, then it is likely that you own a humidor in order to ensure that your cigars are stored correctly to prevent them from spoiling. But what if you are an individual who doesn’t smoke regularly, how should you store your cigars? In this blog post, we at Taylors Tobacconists are going to run you through the best alternatives to a humidor when it comes to cigar storage.
Zip Lock Bag & Sponge
This is perhaps the most basic way of storing a cigar as all you need is a zip lock bag and a sponge, items that are commonly found in most households. To store the cigars, simply wet a fresh kitchen sponge, ring out the excess water and place it in the bag with your cigars. Make sure that the bag is completely sealed to complete the storage process. Check the bag from time-to-time to ensure that the sponge isn’t drying out. If it is, replace it with a new, wet sponge to keep your cigars from spoiling.
Tupperware Container & Humidification Pouch
One step up from a zip lock bag and sponge is a tupperware container and humidification pouch. But much like the aforementioned method, this process is also incredibly simple. All that needs to be done is for you to deposit your cigars and humidification pouch into the tupperware container and seal it tightly. If you are not a regular cigar smoker, then it may be unlikely that you have any humidification pouches at home. But do not worry, they can be found in most cigar stores.
The best cigar storage option aside from a humidor is undoubtedly a cooler. This is because it allows you to store more cigars for a longer period of time. As long as the seal is intact, quite literally all that is required is for the cigars to be placed inside. Humidification pouches are sometimes recommended also, just to guarantee that the cigars remain as fresh as possible.
