Q. If I am buying a box of cigars overseas, what is the best way to store the cigars whilst traveling on an airplane?

A. Assuming you’re not bringing Cuban cigars into the U.S., which could be confiscated at Customs, I would purchase a travel humidor. They’re air and water tight, and keep your cigars really fresh. When flying with cigars, I also recommend storing them in your carry-on so they’re traveling under “normal” conditions, as opposed¬†to the¬†freezing temperatures in the baggage compartment.¬ The typical travel humidor¬†holds 5 or 10 cigars, but there are plenty of selections that hold enough cigars for a really big herf.
