Questions & Answers…

Question: I’m new to the cigar game. I’ve always been fascinated with the aromas they emit as well as the symbolism of masculinity that accompanies them. However, as I have hardly any first hand knowledge I would like to know what would be a good beginner cigar? Something not overpowering naturally, but enough to get a taste for them. I do enjoy bold flavors if that helps narrow the search.

Question: What is the best way to store your cigars without a humidifier? I plan to invest in a good humidifier but i just can’t stop buying exquisite stogies!




Hi John

Thanks for the inquiry. Honesty, there is no temporary way best to keep

cigars out of a humidor and especially this time of year. You should make

your way up to one of the Tinder Box stores there in Memphis and have them

recommend a humidor for you. (You are saying humidifier, but I believe you

mean humidor.) Humidifier is the device that puts moisture into the air. A

humidor is where you store your cigars.

Humidors come with a moisture device that you put distilled water in or on

to maintain perfect freshness for your cigars.

You can get a great humidor that will hold 50 or so cigars for under $200 in

most instances. (Beware of the so called bargain humidors being hawked

online, please.)

You can go to our website and there are 2 articles regarding humidors.





These articles should help you.

Stop by one of the stores in Memphis and make that investment.

Good Luck
