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. Emission should not occur in the humidor so the temperature should be always maintained at a constant level to protect the oil between the tobacco leaves not to absorb it. After harvesting of tobacco leaves it is dried for thirty days so as to remove chlorophyll, at these point the cigar will begin aging similar to what wine does. Ask any cigar manufacturer these and they will confirm that with time cigar do age to even better flavor than that of which the cigar had when leaving the factory for shipment or aging when stored in a cigar humidor at home.
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. Another requirement is an electronic humidifier if your humidor happens to be quite large. Besides having an electronic humidifier is important to have the required solution to use for the humidifier. 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. Rather than using pure distilled water it is prudent to use a solution of the distilled water and propylene glycol as the humidification solution.
The reason behind using a cigar humidification solution rather than distilled water is that, while you take the distilled water there are some two ways in which the humidification solution works unlike distilled water. When the humidor becomes dry the propylene glycol releases absorbed moisture into the area. Similarly when in conditions of excessive moisture in the cigar environment the propylene solution absorbs it to stability.
Another advantage is that propylene glycol will inhibit the growth of mold, which can be a significant problem in humidors as that are not properly maintained. Mold spoils the quality of cigars. 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.
Nicotine in the tobacco that is found in cigar has a number of advantaged.There are advantages of nicotine in cigars. 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 .
To have perfect and easy reading it is essential to have a digital hygrometer. In cases the humidity seal is not working properly you should check the humid levels more frequently or if you are in dry areas.
