A great cigar is not properly enjoyed without the appropriate accessories. The most important accessories every cigar smoker should have are lighters, cutters, ashtrays, and a humidor. Surely you could bite the tip off your cigar but that would be in bad manners. A cutter is crucial in obtaining the perfect draw. A wind resistant torch lighter is an excellent accessory to have on hand, especially on a windy golf course. I don’t have to explain an ashtray, do I? And, for serious smokers?... a good looking, high quality humidor is a must. You don't settle for poor quality cigars, so don't settle for a low quality humidor.
A good humidor is best viewed as a good investment. As a rule of thumb, go with mahogany. Many types of wood are suitable, but mahogany is the standard because it tends to be very stable under most conditions and won't warp. A Spanish Cedar lining is absorbent and regulates the humidity. This is crucial, and also beetles hate the bitter taste. Other accessories you may consider are a travel humidor or a telescoping cigar case. If you are married and you smoke at home, an air purifier would be a wise investment, too. Cheers!
