Fine cigars, like fine wines, improve with age - but only if stored correctly. The longer they are kept in a controlled environment, the better they will taste. A full humidor of cigars is quite an investment so treat it as such.
Keep the humidor in a position that remains at around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, give ot take two degrees either way, and keep it out of direct sunlight and draughts.
Be affirmative when cutting the cigar for a good clean cut. Some prefer to create an opening with a cocktail stick or similar rather than cutting. Keep some cedar tapers in the humidor too for the best lighting process (don’t use matches, why would you want all that sulphurous smoke polluting your cigar?) As for removing the paper band this is an often argued point which we won’t cover here - each to their own!
