Here are some ways on how to preserve your cigars. Have a look at it...
Humidors are ideal to store cigars, but if you do not have one, make sure that you keep them in a sealed plastic bag. Excess air or moisture can spoil your cigar.
Save from sun:
Avoid placing your cigars in direct sunlight. If the temperature and humidity get too high, cigars can develop a potentially damaging fungus or mold. Ideal conditions are 70°F (21°C) and 70% humidity.
Do not freeze:
Do not keep your cigars in the refrigerator as it will suck out the moisture content of your sticks.
Place your cigars in a horizontal fashion. This ensures minimum air damage.
Remove the tubes before placing the cigars in the humidor. The tubes are ideal for protecting cigars when you travel, be it in your pocket, briefcase or luggage.
