One Thing More Critical Than Humidity with Cigars

Everyone knows that controlling the humidity of your humidor is critical. But there’s actually another thing that’s just as important as humidity – Temperature. Let me take you through exactly how important temperature is, and what you can do to help your collection!

  1. The microwave is not a valid test on the cigar. Microwaves heat by speeding the movement of water molecules, rather than traditional radiant heat that works by actually increasing temperature of all molecules. This is the reason microwaved foods cool down so quickly as compared to food cooked in an oven or over a grill. A better test would be to place the cigar in the same acrylic humidor near a radiant heat source for thirty minutes. Another reason your microwave test is not a valid scientific test is
    That you removed the cigar from the acrylic humidor, which acts as your control device in the fridge test.

  2. Makes perfect sense and I exlerience the effect of temperature on flavour all the time. I live in Ottawa Canada… the hottest or coldest capital in the world depending on the month. My favourite cigars lose much of their best flavours if smoked in cold temperatures. They also gain some unpleasant burning properties wben smomed in high heat and low rh%. I keep economu sticks for smoking during extreme heat and cold… and save my premium sticks for days between anout 10c and 30c. I have found the temperature of the cigar to be such a factor, that I wont review a new cigar unless the temperature is perfect.

My favourite cigars lose much of their best flavours if smoked in cold temperatures. They also gain some unpleasant burning properties when smoked in high heat and low rh%. I keep economy sticks specifically for smoking during extreme heat and cold… and save my premium sticks for days between anout 10c and 30c.

PS my acrylic humidors are always at 70-70 no matter what the weather
