|Never rely on hunches on when or if to refill a humidifier in your humidor. Using distilled water, gels, or beads is no longer a nuisance (or a mess). Boveda offers maintenance-free cigar care. Variations in humidity result in the loss of flavour and essential oils in cigars. Save the art of making cigars by preserving the skillful balancing of the filler, binder, and wrapper.
