Humidor - I got shot down!
Not really......but today I walked into a Smoke shop in the Charlotte area to look for a humidor and was staright up told not to buy one by a guy who makes his living in sales. I was surprised to say the least but his reasoning for me was that A) if I'm not smoking one everyday or even a few times a week it's not worth it and they need to be babied constantly in order to maintain them, from recharching to rotating cigars to whatever else is involved. I guess he was saying its more of a pain then a luxury. I never really had a good vibe from the guy and he kind of made me feel like I was too young and inexperienced to worry about getting this involved. That being said we did talk cigars for a while but I ended up walking out with a couple of sticks rather then what I actually went in for.
I am new to cigars but what do you all think? Is a humidor necessary and easier to maintain then what this guy made it out to be?
