Xikar Humidity Crystals for Your Wooden Humidor
In this video review I wanted to share a little tip with you about how to keep your wooden humidor at the house humidified a little better. I’m a big fan of the Boveda humidity packs for my tupperdores, but they don’t work as well inside wooden humidors. Hence the Xikar Humidity Crystals! They work awesome! I bought a big 4oz jar and the little 2oz and I put both of them in my humidor (as you can see in the video). I try to keep my cigars around 70% humidity, which can be a little difficult with wooden humidors. So far I’m very happy I decided to try out Xikar’s product. I’m not surprised though, Xikar is known for making great things. I should have tried it out sooner. So far I’ve been able to get my wood humidor to stabilize at 66% humidity, but we’ll see what happens after I rearrange some of my cigars around. Overall, this is a great tool to keep your cigars nice and fresh. Some of the cigars in this humidor include several El Primer Mundo cigars made by Sean Williams like the Epifania, Hermandad and Costa Fuerta, as well as One 13 Chronicles, Black Label Trading Company and The Eastern Standard from Robert Caldwell. Another tip for these crystals is to remove the little black grate on the jar also if you’re not getting the humidity level you are looking for. By removing the grate cover you give more air space for the gel crystals to work their magic.
