Cigar Question #1: Can I store my cigars in the refrigerator?
By Jared Gulick
We received a question from Nick in Bolivia, North Carolina. He asked, “Can I store cigars in my fridge? I’ve heard of people doing that, but I don’t want to ruin them.” Technically, you can do whatever you want. But remember…every action has a consequence. This topic comes up more than most might think, and your choice can greatly impact whether your hard-earned collection survives. Yep. It’s that serious. Before you place your sticks alongside your milk and eggs, be sure to watch this video and see whether it’s the move you should make.

By John Pullo
We have some cigar Spanish on tap today…and it comes from Scott in New York. He asks, “What is a fuma? I’ve seen some cigars called fumas, but I’ve also heard you guys describe it as something else. What’s the difference?” Scott is right when he says “fuma” means more than one thing: both a valuable tool for the cigar blender and a budget bundle cigar, but a fuma is really more than that – and I’ll explain all of them, in this short video.
