Reviewing cigars and the lifestyle surrounding them.
"Boveda Humidipak"
This great product is the world’s first 2 way humidity control system. The Humidipak will give off or take in humidity when needed. Simply remove the Boveda pack from the outer plastic wrap and throw it in your desktop humidor and thats all. You don’t have to measure distilled water or 50/50 solution or worry about mold, mildew or other bacterial growth. The packs come in different RH levels so you can choose which one best suits your needs. You will know when to replace these packs as the gel inside starts to harden. In my opinion this is an easy and safe alternative to those who always worry about having the right humidity in ones humidor. Boveda also have Humidipaks which will season your humidor and they also carry calibration kits for hygrometers if you are not comfortable using the salt method. Be sure to check these out sometime! As always, Stay Toasting!

Humidity and Temperature…

Alot of people have been asking me what’s the best range of humidity and temperature to keep your cigars. The optimal range is 70 degrees and 70% humidity. The humidity mostly depends on where to you live in the world. If your in a area where the ambient humidity is 90% most of the time, try keeping your cigars at 65%. If your in a dry climate you may want to keep your cigar humidor at 75%. Experiment and see what is the best range for yourself and your climate. Temperature can be more flexible, the only temperature you do not want to keep your cigar humidor exposed to is 80 degrees or higher. This is when you will have a tobacco beetle problem. I also would suggest you do not keep your cigars below 50 degrees. I store my cigars at 60 degrees and 70% humidity, and for me it’s a perfect balance. So try different ranges and find your cigars perfect balance. As always, stay toasting!
