In Waspy’s Spirits Den at our convenience store in Audubon, Iowa, you’ll find a cigar humidor. But why? Why is it important to keep cigars in a humidor?
At Waspy’s, “We’re More than Just a Truck Stop.” We put our customers first, and for those who enjoy cigars, we want to offer the ideal condition for cigars.
Our six-shelf humidor is located inside our Spirits Den. In order to keep cigars in tip-top, optimal shape, humidity must be regulated.
Cigar Tobacco is Humidity-Sensitive
Cigar tobacco is humidity-sensitive. Cigar tobacco both absorbs and releases moisture, which makes regulating the humidity around it crucial.
If the cigar gets too dry, it may be impossible to smoke or taste bitter.
In a dry environment, cigars can also lose essential oils and flavors.
Too much moisture can cause a cigar to swell and make it difficult to get a decent draw.
Humidor Keeps Cigars in Tip-Top Condition
The solution is a humidor, and the best are made of wood and have room for air to circulate inside.
Our stand-up humidor is made of wood with a glass door so customers can best view our cigar options.
At Waspy’s, in Audubon, we make sure our cigars are in tip-top condition.
