Navigating the Seas of Cigar Storage

Tips of how to look after cigars on board

1. Optimal Humidor Selection:

Investing in a quality humidor is paramount. Ensure it’s temperature-controlled and well-padded, essential for protecting cigars from the rigors of maritime travel. A tray inside facilitates easy cigar service for your crew, and most humidors come equipped with a hygrometer to monitor the humidity (ideally kept at 70%).

2. Cool and Dark Storage:

Shield your cigars from direct sunlight and excessive heat by selecting a cool, dark storage spot on your yacht. Protect them from temperature fluctuations and preserve their integrity for a delightful smoke.

3. Consider the Accessories:

A state-of-the-art jet-flamed lighter is a must, especially on a breezy deck. Ensure deep, covered ashtrays with a grill to prevent sparks and ash from disrupting the enjoyment of your cigars.

4. Rotate Your Cigars:

Regularly rotating your cigar collection prevents uneven aging, ensuring each cigar maintains its distinct flavor profile and quality.

5. Perfect Pairings with Drinks:

Elevate your cigar experience with expert pairings:

  • Cohiba Blue Classico: Medium-bodied with earthy, creamy, and leathery notes, pairs well with Papá Andrés Rum.
  • Cigars and Bourbon: Explore the rich flavor profiles of bourbon that harmonize with medium and full-bodied cigars.
  • Tequila Blanco: Ideal with a robust cigar, while Reposado tequila complements a softer, richer-tasting smoke.
  • Cognac: For a regal palate, Winston Churchill’s classic choice was Hine Cognac with Cuban Romeo y Julietas Cigars.
