FAQ humidores wacota
At Wacota humidors we want to help you resolve all the doubts and questions you have about humidors and the preservation of cigars. Here you can find the answers to the questions you need solving.
A cigar humidor is a larger or smaller box made with special characteristics for the preservation of Premium cigars. It is lined with cedar wood, since this is the best wood to store cigars for a long period of time. This wood allows the maintenance of the ideal environment so that the cigars do not dry out, and can even improve over time.
A humidor is used to store and preserve cigars for long periods of time. In addition to having an aesthetic function, humidors prevent cigars from spoiling. The humidity and temperature conditions inside the humidors make it possible for the cigars to last in perfect condition for an extensive period of time, without drying out or losing any of their distinctive characteristics. The preservation of cigars in a humidor helps to maintain their own characteristics in terms of aromas and flavors with which they were manufactured. It also benefits the aging of the cigars and the settlement of their notes.
Humidors are easy to operate. They are wooden boxes with humidity generation systems, which allow a humidity of around 70% to be reached. You just have to be aware of the humidity levels inside, to ensure that they do not fall much below, or rise in excess above 70%. If the humidity that is generated inside the humidor is natural, created by means of a tray system with a sponge moistened in distilled water, the sponge must be moistened when necessary. In the case of an electronic humidity generation system, it is also necessary to be aware of whether the tank needs more distilled water.
One of the doubts that is most often asked is how you should start your humidor. In fact, Burkina The Magazine has told us that you have even referred this question to them. And since we love that you asked us about it, or any other doubt in which we can help you, we made this post to answer you. Well, in this case, the answer is very simple: you have to turn it on to work until it reaches a humidity of around 70%.
Keeping cigars in a humidor prevents them from spoiling and helps them age better. When keeping the cigars in a humidor, they do not dry out, nor do they become excessively humid in case of living in a very humid place, for example the beach. In addition, they prevent them from picking up odors from the environment that may be noticed when smoking it. As the tobacco in cigars comes from a plant and is alive, its preservation in the humidor makes it continue to enrich itself. In other words, allow it to continue to age and soak up the aromas given off by the cedar wood in the humidor.
The humidity inside the humidor is the key variable so that the cigars are well preserved. In homes, it is common for heating and/or air conditioner systems to dry out the environment. The humidity inside the humidor prevents the cigars from drying out in the home environment. Thus, the humidity levels achieved in the humidor are similar to the typical tropical climate of the countries where most Premium cigars are manufactured.
Basically, humidors can have two humidification systems: natural or electronic. The first consists of placing a tray with a sponge which has been moistened in distilled water inside the humidor. It is a simple mechanism that does not require much work, except to periodically moisten the sponge when it begins to dry out.
The other model of humidification is to use electronic devices. At Wacota Humidors we have our own electronic humidification device: the HR6. It is available in two sizes to fit small and large humidors. It is a device that automatically expels water vapor from a tank that stores distilled water. It has a hygrostat in which the humidity level to be maintained in the humidor is established. The device itself generates humidity through a nebulizer and a fan expands it, until it reaches the preset level. In addition, it has a probe that measures the humidity inside the humidor, so that when it reaches 70%, it stops automatically. Similarly, if the humidity level drops, it is activated again.
Although humidity is the most critical variable inside the humidor, temperature is also important. The range between which the temperature should be in a humidor ranges between 16 and 23 degrees Celsius. Temperature levels are important for the aging of cigars. Thus, if the temperature is very low, the wrapper of the cigar can be damaged. If the temperature is very high (above 24 degrees Celsius), there is a danger of pests arising in cigar tobacco, such as the well-known and dreaded tobacco beetle.
Humidity and temperature inside the humidor are closely related. The maximum amount of water vapor that can fit in the air without becoming saturated (condensing) depends on the ambient temperature. This means that the warmer the air, the more water vapor it can hold without becoming saturated with moisture. Thus, the relative humidity that is talked about for humidors is the amount of water vapor in the air measured in so many percent (70%).
A good humidor should be lined with cedar wood on the inside. This type of wood has been shown to be the best for maintaining proper humidity levels. The cedar woods used in humidors are of tropical origin, so they are very suitable for living in environments with high levels of humidity. Therefore, they are perfect for maintaining the 70% humidity that is required inside the humidor.
The size of the humidor depends on the number of cigars you want to store and the space you have. A larger or smaller humidor is neither better nor worse. It all depends on the needs of each individual. Therefore, for a collector, a personal or tabletop humidor may suffice; but you may also need a humidor with a larger capacity, such as the display cases (medium or large). A professional tobacconist with little space will have to use less large humidors with sufficient storage. However, there are also spacious establishments that may need a large, custom-built cigar cellar for example.
The size is not what influences the preservation of cigars, the important thing is the correct humidity and temperature levels inside the humidor. Therefore, the key to cigar preservation is to set the proper levels for these two variables and monitor them periodically regardless of the size of the humidor.
