Although research suggests that tobacco smoking has been around for as many as 7,000 years, it wasn’t until the 16th century that the cigar, as we now know it, came to be.
The first cigar smokers in Europe were French and Spanish sailors, but the trendy cigar quickly spread in popularity to England as well as the New World.
Today, many cigar aficionados believe that the best cigars come from Cuba, with close rivals coming from the Dominican Republic, Honduras and even Florida.
Cigars are still closely tied with celebration, often being lit at the birth of a baby or a major achievement like a college graduation. Whatever the occasion or the origin of the cigar, we believe it should be treated well and enjoyed in perfect condition. That’s why a quality humidor is such a vital element of the cigar smoker’s repertoire.
What Makes a Great Cigar Humidor
As the perfect container for fine cigars, the humidor regulates the humidity inside to protect the integrity of the cigars it holds through the use of a hygrometer. When you begin looking for the perfect humidor to give as a gift, there are a few key things to look for.
First, consider the size. The humidor you choose should be long enough to fit the largest cigars in the collection as well as large enough to hold at least a dozen cigars at the same time.
Some of the best humidors are made from wood, but other synthetic materials can be effective. It will likely take a place of pride in the home or office of the recipient, so make sure you pick something elegant and classic that appeals to the specific taste and style of the one receiving it.
