Potential Tupperdor problems
Q. I am using several “Tupperdors” to age cigars until I have room in my regular humidors. I’m looking at leaving the cigars in the “tupperdors” for probably at least a year at a time for aging purposes.Are there any problems inherent in this?Because the “tupperdors” don’t breath, is there any danger of mold?I am keeping everything very close to 70/70.

A. There is always danger of mold, but as long as you have a reliable humidification system, and check the ‘dor regularly, you should be OK. You may also have to let the container “breathe” every so often, to get some fresh air in there as you would with a regular cigar humidor.
Since Spanish cedar is important for keeping your cigars “factory fresh” during aging, if you are using a large Tupperdor, it’s best to keep the cigars in their original factory boxes. If you are using a small container that will only hold single cigars, be sure to line the box with the Spanish cedar blocks and/or sheets found in the factory boxes.
