I have three separate humidors for each “flavor” of my cigars. I have Acid Cigars, Java types, and then traditional. I had them all in one humidor at one point but the flavors were “bleeding”. My acids started tasting chocolaty and the traditional cigars had less kick. I read somewhere on a forum that most people don’t put Acids and regular cigars side by side but I was skeptical about flavor absorption. What I have found with luxury goods is that people usually make them too complicated then they need to be. So I figured this was true with cigar segregation! I was wrong, maybe there is some method to the madness. I have found that my cigars are fresher and taste more true now that I made some sit in their own box. So moral of this story is connoisseurs probably know what they are talking about and cigars actually do absorb other flavors!
