Being a new cigar smoker the humidor is the cigar accessory that I had read most about. There is so much mysticism around the methods that are best. A low 62% humidity gives the cigar a more European taste (dry), where as a 68-72% seems to be what most prefer to keep the cigar just right. Any higher like 75% and the cigar could become too moist. The debate on these humidity levels rage on. I prefer the 70% range, right in the middle. To me this leaves the cigar a tad plush and not to dry.
