The Humidor

For the past 17 years, Humboldt has enjoyed unexpected access to the finer pleasures in life thanks to the friendly staff at Myrtlewood Liquors and John's Fine Cigars. The folks behind the counter can switch hit between talking shop about vintage Port to where the biggest fish have been biting. The selection surpasses expectations of a neighborhood liquor store before you even get to the cigars. Tucked into the front corner of the shop, John's humidor is a cedar-walled escape from reality. Rows of open boxes line the walls, quietly advertising the flavors tightly packed inside each cylindrical, toasty brown cigar. Linger in the tropical air and browse hand-rolled, aged cigars that will raise a connoisseur's eyebrow, like Perdomos, Montecristos and Romeo y Julietas.
