I work for a cigar shop and recently stumbled upon a Tat black humi-jar that was apprently shipped with the sticks. I'm unfamiliar with them so I do not know the history of these. Anyways, I was thinking about putting it in service on the desk at home and keeping the humidor down stairs in the basement for those cigars I plan on leaving for a bit longer. I don't have much right now in the way of cigars to put into my humidor so the jar will be unused for a while longer, but instead of walking up and down 2 flights of stairs to get a cigar to smoke outside on the deck I figure I can keep 2-4 sticks in the jar for the times I feel like going out onto the deck. I know its lazy, but I want to use the jar if possible but I'm not sure how well I can rely on the jar as it seems the seal isn't amazing, but if I use boevas or xikar pillows will they be ok?
Any help appreciated,
