I have been buying cigars for a long time. In the beginning, I would buy cigars that I needed then; I would go to lounges, run a tab, and then pay as I left. Rinse and repeat, and I never built up a stock of more than one or two cigars at home.
But slowly, I began to realize that I was being stupid with my money. Sure, I could go and get a fresh cigar in a professionally maintained humidor every week, but I was spending a lot of money to do so. I could just as easily order my cigars via my favorite online cigar shop, and do so without spending as much money, and though I wouldn’t be smoking with friends at a lounge, I’d still be enjoying a flavorful smoke.
As I began to stockpile cigars, though, I noticed that some of them were drying out. They were flaky, tasted awful, and just didn’t seem right to the touch. Boveda had a solution waiting, one that I was vaguely aware of, and one that not only protected my newer cigars, but one that was also able to revive some of my older and less properly cared-for ones. It’s simple. You just take a Boveda pack, then you put it into the cigar box or humidor that you’re keeping your cigars in. Store the cigar box properly out of the sunlight and away from sources of intense heat, and take cigars out of it at your leisure. Replace your humidipak every few weeks, and you’ll be good to go, and your cigars will stay fresh and moist like they should be. A must-have for anyone who smokes cigars.
