In the walk-in humidors your entire selection of cigars is stored and exhibited using the most rigorous implementations of temperature and humidity to guarantee the most optimal conditions and conservation.
Cigars are hygroscopic in nature. This means that they will dry out over time when in dry climate or absorb moisture in a humid one. cigars will continue to do so until their own moisture contact matches that of the ambient climate around them.
Aging has a critical impact on a cigar's body and flavor. initial aging after their rolling is essential to allow the cigar to dry and stabilize. Not only will this greatly improve the flavor, but also greatly improve the burn and draw. Stabilization takes only 6 to 8 weeks, however allowing your cigars to age even longer will let the flavors of the blend meld and mellow into a more harmonious smoke. A cigar's complexities and nuances will be greatly enhanced with long term aging in a proper environment. A damp cigar will not burn properly. Not only will it be difficult to be kept lit, but also difficult to draw on, the smoke may become too dense leaving the smoker with a sour taste and a rank aroma. A dry cigar will burn too hot. Without the proper level of moisture, the combustion temperature of your cigar will be too high and the smoke will be hot and acrid against your palate. Also, dry cigars will lead eventually to the early evaporation of there essential oils and reduce their over all flavor and aroma.
Typically for the most enjoyable smoking, a cigar should contain approximately 12-14% of is total weight in moisture. this corresponds to 60-70% relative humidity. Relative humidity (RH) is a measure of the amount of moisture in the atmosphere compared with that of complete saturation regardless of the temperature.
The primary criteria in the proper storage of cigars are to achieve a stable and ideal relative humidity within the 60% - 70% RH. The secondary, but also important requirements to store them at temperatures below 75 degrees Fahrenheit and a lower light environment. Doing these three simple things will allow your cigars to not only be stored well, but also age well resulting in cigars that will draw easily, burns steadily, and share their optimum flavor and nuances with your palate.
At La Casa De La Habana, we take pride in keeping our walk-in humidors at optimum climate control to insure every cigar we store is perfected to meet your cigar smoking pleasure.
