What is the ideal humidity for a cigar?

Cigar Humidity

Cigars are handmade with natural leaves and to preserve and age the tobacco, humidors need to be properly maintained. The ideal humidity in a cigar humidor is 65 to 75 percent. The internal temperature should be maintained precisely between 68 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don't keep the humidors in these ranges, you are just preparing a coffin for your cigars. Only use distilled water in the humidification devices. Choose a location outside of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Neither is good for the humidors or the care of the cigars.
