Our range of cigars is always delivered in a cigarette box of the brand concerned. The cigar boxes from our range are often made of wood, but certain brands also deliver their cigars in cardboard packaging. Cigars sold per 1 unit are often packaged in plastic. However, this depends on the manufacturer and the quantity in which you order cigars. The cigars of Balmoral are often delivered in a luxury box of cigarettes. The packages consist of different compartments, each for a suitable sized cigar. In addition, limited edition cigarettes are available in the webshop. An example is the Compaenen Limited Edition 2016 with included humidifying element and double-cutting cigar cutter.
Most cigars are packed in a wooden cigarette box, but why is that actually? Wood is one of the first used packaging materials in our history. Nowadays we see that plastic packaging has taken over the wood. Wood is mainly used in luxury items such as wine, tobacco or glass. Wood is often chosen because it is a sturdy material that ensures that fragile products do not break down so quickly.
Are you looking for a universal cigarette box? Then you will soon reach the humidor . A humidor is a luxury cigar box that ensures that your cigar does not dry out. After having smoked a cigar halfway, you can light the cigar again at a different time without the cigar being dehydrated and the taste has been lost. Cigars have a short expiry date. The taste is quickly lost when the cigar dries too much. A humor prevents drying out due to a built-in hygrometer. This meter regulates the humidity in the cigarette box.
Every type of cigarette has a desired temperature and humidity that ensure that the taste stays the most. A lungfiller cigar can best be kept at a humidity level of 70%. The ideal storage temperature is also between 16 and 18 degrees. For a mediumfiller cigar the same humidity level applies and the same temperature applies. For shortfiller cigars, a humidity level of 40% is the most ideal at a temperature between 16 and 18 degrees.
Humidors come in many different designs and sizes. The price is often determined by the storage capacity and the material used. In addition, there are also electric humidors on the market that can be set to the desired temperature and air humidity. The electric cigarette box gives a signal when there is a need to refill moisture if it is no longer sufficient to reach the desired humidity. A humidor that is not electrically controlled should be checked weekly to determine whether the humidity is still optimal. In the webshop of Tabakado you will find a diverse range of humidors. Varying from classic wooden humidors, travel humidors and electric humidors. Travel humidors are very useful to take your cigars with you on a journey so that the cigar will still taste good after a trip.
