Cigars 101

Storing ACID Cigars

Q. I like to smoke a variety of cigars. I’ve been told I shouldn’t keep ACID brand cigars in the same humidor as others. Is that true?
– D. Colburn
A. Absolutely. ACID cigars are made with herbal and botanical oils that will affect the scent of your “traditional” cigars. Just take a whiff and you’ll know what I mean. ;-)

Most of the ACID cigar smokers I speak to have a separate humidor for them. If you don’t have one, use an empty cigar box or a Tupperware-type container, put a humidifier in it, and you’re good to go.
