Should flavored cigars be stored separately?

Cigar Q&A: Storing Flavored Cigars

Q: I’m new to cigar smoking and really liking flavored and infused cigars. However, I’ve been told to be careful storing them, as the flavors in some of my cigars may rub off on the others in my humidor. True?

A:  Yes. Flavored cigars like CAO flavours, Tatiana Classic and Tatiana Mocha for example, as well as herbal/botanical-infused varieties like ACID, should be kept in a separate humidor or other humidified container to avoid the aromas from being picked up by your non-flavored cigars.

The only exception would be a tubo or a tin in which the flavored cigars are sealed. However, the nose knows, so if you detect a strong aroma coming from a flavored tubo or tin, keep them separated, too.
