Cigars 101

Should You Stand your Cigars Up for Storage?

Q. I have several bundles and boxes in my overflow igloodor. Some are upright to maximize storage space. Is it OK, or do all the cigars need to be laying flat?

- Chris B. in North Carolina

A. There's no set rule dictating that your cigars have to be lying flat. After all, bundle cigars are packaged in an upright positon, and the Rocky Patel The Edge Missile cigars (shown) are presented in upright triangular boxes. If anything, it's the nature of the cigar humidor's chest-type design that causes you to arrange them lying down. Based on your particular situation, whatever position works is fine.
