Cigar Humidification

Storing small cigars packaged in tins

Q. Do small cigars (in the tins) need humidification?
– Roger D.

A. In most cases, particularly the dry-cured, machine-made “café” cigars such as Panter (shown) Dannemann, Schimmelpennick, etc., do not need any humidification. However, handmade longfiller small cigars like Cohiba Pequeños, Padron Corticos, CAO Gold Karats, and the like, should be kept in a humidor.
