Q & A: How do you properly store tubo cigars?

How do you properly store tubo cigars?

8/05/16 | by GM of North Arlington, NJ

If your cigars come in a tubo it is best to age them inside the tube in your humidor just like any other cigar. Although it may seem like your cigar is safe without added humidity, the main purpose of the tube is to just provide protection to the cigar. Many enthusiasts will opt for a cigar that comes in a tubo to enjoy that day because it is easy to just throw it in your pocket and go without worrying about damaging the cigar. If tubo cigars are left out of your humidor without humidification, they will eventually dry out over time because you cannot count on them being airtight. Inside your humidor, they will take on the humidity, albeit at a much slower rate than cigars not in tubes.

Review: Latitude Zero Excursion

Dave Your Lucky Find

A bit of a hidden gem within the cigar industry, Latitude Zero is crafted in Nicaragua by the world’s most premier tobacco growers and broke out onto the scene last year with an exquisite blend featuring a top-grade Habano Ecuador wrapper. This time around they turn their focus to a maduro leaf and simply nailed it out of the park. Dressed in a dark and toothy US Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and packaged up in handmade leather pouches, this cigar is quite a looker. But it’s the flavor that truly wows you. This medium to full-bodied cigar offers up hearty notes of chocolate and coffee right off the bat. Followed up by undertones of earth, leather, and some pepper, this cigar is incredibly rich yet always smooth.
