I really enjoy my aged cigars. I smoke them only on special occasions, however. Buying and smoking fine old cigars may seem appropriate for only the most devoted aficionado, considering the cost and inconvenience.
But once you try a well-matured cigar, you must have more. Yet Jacobs is still buying. Fox and Robert Lewis, a London merchant with a long history in selling aged cigars. I can smell the difference between an aged cigar and a new one right away. Not all cigar experts agree, however.

That dryness seems to play a special role. Most of the London experts in aged cigars agree that storage should be at a lower humidity than the industrywide standard of 70 percent. Years ago, London cigar merchants wanted to store their cigars at about 55 percent humidity, producing what was known as the classic, dry British style, according to the late cigar merchant Tony Anderson.
