We’re talking a little more about that today.
Seasoning is something that you’re supposed to do to a new humidor, so if you’ve already got one and you’ve been using it, there’s no need to season it now. The reason that you’re supposed to season a humidor is that the seasoning process allows the wood to absorb moisture. A dry, unseasoned humidor will suck up moisture at first.
That means that if you put your cigars in there too early, you’re at risk to dry them out. Once the humidor has been seasoned or it’s been running for a while, it should be able to handle the humidity just fine and not dry out your cigars. It is important to note though that some companies do pre-season their humidors so this step wouldn’t be necessary if that’s the case.
