Cigar Q&A: Using a Factory Cigar Box as a Humidor
Cigar Box Storage: will a factory box keep cigars fresh?
Q. I have a small humidor (holds 20), and so when I order another box of cigars I don’t have enough room.Is it okay to turn the factory cigar box that the cigars come in into a makeshift humidor, or would I be better off doing something else?
– Scott in Iowa
A. Turning a factory cigar box into a cigar humidor is fine, especially if it’s one of the better-made wooden boxes. I have two I use in my office as humidors and they work great. The only drawback might be that the factory box would have a tendency to leak more than a standard cigar humidor, so try to use one that has a good seal when it closes. If you can keep the conditions at about 70/70 on average, you’re fine.
