Few things in this life are as satisfying as a slow burn on a fine cigar. It can take a lot to find that perfect cigar though, but there are some helpful things you can do when you are looking.
The first is easy, stick to tobacco shops and online cigar retailers. The best way to guarantee a fresh, quality, cigar is to shop at a store that specializes in tobacco. Gas stations not only typically carry low-end product, they are also rarely properly stored.
Find a place with a knowledgeable staff. With so many options available on the market, it really helps to have someone who knows what qualities different cigars offer. There is a lot of ground to be covered in the cigar world, and it helps to have a guide. And when you look, try something interesting there are unique cigars everywhere today. Corona Cigar Company makes some of the best hand wrapped cigars on the market for an affordable price. We have a great selection available, and with cigars less than $10 to boxes over $500, there is a choice to fit every budget.
Make sure that the cigars are stored correctly. Away from direct sunlight, and in a well-kept humidor. It is so crucial to keep them in a humidor because cigars are hygroscopic, which means they adapt to their surrounding humidity. Basically, in in a dry room a cigar gets more dry, in a wet room a cigar gets more wet. So keeping the cigar in a room that is not too moist or too dry is the only sure way to keep the tobacco in top shape.
If you do make the mistake and walk away with a cigar that is too dry or too wet. You will just have to leave it in a humidor at home for a span of days to weeks depending on the condition but make sure to follow the proper procedures when seasoning your humidor. It is much easier to simply make sure that the cigars are properly stored before you buy them than to try to correct them at home.
