Shopping for a gift for a cigar lover? What a smoker needs to prep a humidor and maintain it to keep cigars tasting great. The limited-edition set includes a wood holder.
Once a wood humidor has lost moisture, you'll have a tough time re-hydrating the wood and protecting your cigars at the same time. Your RH will be perpetually low. And your Boveda probably won't last as long. Here's everything you need to season a large cigar humidor, calibrate a hygrometer and store cigars in while Boveda works its magic.
Six (6) Size 60 Boveda for Seasoning:
Provides moisture directly to the cellular structure of the wood to create a better seal and prevent the wood from stealing moisture from your premium cigars.
One (1) 75% RH One-Step Hygrometer Calibration Kit:
Gauges whether or not your humidity sensor is performing effectively. Hygrometers notoriously fall out of calibration after just a few months.
Three (3) Large Humidor Bags Preloaded with 69% RH:
Preserves up to 80 cigars each. Never leave your cigars unprotected—fluctuating humidity levels affect their smokability and cause them to lose essential oils and flavors.
This kit is for:
A wood humidor made to hold up to a 150 cigars (Humidor not included.)
HOW TO USE:
Both heating and air conditioning scrub the air of moisture, which makes your wood humidor work harder—it can happen fast if you're not on top of it. So combat the dry inside air or it will affect the cigars within your wood humidor. Season every new humidor with the Boveda Humidor Starter Kit. (Available separately here.)
Re-seasoning your wood humidor with this Boveda Humidor Tune Up Kit is recommended every six months, especially if you live in a dry climate or at high altitude.
STEP 1, EMPTY YOUR HUMIDOR AND RELOCATE YOUR CIGARS INTO THE HUMIDOR BAGS:
STEP 2, SEASON YOUR WOOD HUMIDOR:
STEP 3, CALIBRATE YOUR HYGROMETER:
Don't mix RH (Relative Humidity) levels within the same humidor or humidor bag. And do not use Boveda in the same humidor with other humidification products because they will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of Boveda.
Unopened package: Up to 2 years
It's common that the actual RH of a humidor will stabilize up to 5 points lower than the Boveda RH you use because of humidor quality and ambient dryness. In an airtight environment, all Boveda are accurate to +/- 2% of the RH printed on the pack.
Food-grade salt, purified water and a food-grade thickening agent.
