We frequently get asked why we choose to individually encase our cigars in glass tubes (pharmaceutical grade glass, by the way) instead of offering them in boxes. The answer is simple. The sealed glass tubes allow us to better control the freshness and environment of the cigar. Our tube encased cigars have been known to remain fresh for years, without needing to be kept in a humidor. That being said, it is important that even the glass enclosed cigars be kept out of extreme temperatures or direct sunlight for the best results.
