Does Spanish Cedar change the flavor of cigars?


Recommended Posts

I have just been starting out on my Cuban cigar obsession.  I have currently been using a Boveda Small Acrylic Humidor.  It just holds twenty Robustos.  I have one of the older models that doesn’t have the Spanish Cedar tray.  It just has an acrylic tray to elevate the cigars above the Boveda packs, so it’s 100% acrylic.  I needed something bigger so I ordered a Colibri Quasar Humidor.  It’s a traditional humidor that is lined with Spanish Cedar.  I guess I should have asked you all this question before I ordered it, but does the Spanish Cedar lining change the flavor of the cigars?  I know that Spanish Cedar has been synonymous with cigars for probably thousands of years, but I want to taste my Cubans for what they are and don’t want anything changing their taste.  Any help is appreciated.

Spanish cedar is used in humidors for its hygroscopic properties and due to the fact that it won’t ruin your cigars by adding unwanted taste. You should be ok.
