Does the wood that a humidor is made from make a difference or any changes to the cigars? In other words, does it affect taste over a period of time?

Externally, it doesn't affect your cigars. What's important is the interior lining.

"When it comes to interior lining, the best material is Spanish Cedar. It's absorbent, so it regulates at 60%-70% along with your cigars, and beetles hate its bitter taste, so it discourages infestations. What's more, it will give your cigars a slightly spicy flavor - a taste prized by most cigar-lovers" (cigars4dummies.com)

Yeah, I like cedar wood a lot - it has nice aroma and lasts for long. The best wood for your little Cuban fellows

This is good to know and something I'd never considered before. I'm getting ready to buy my first humidor so I'll be on the lookout for one with cedar lining.

By the way, the wall thickness matters as well - thick walls provide a better buffer between the ambient air and your cigars. This will protect your cigars from rapid humidity and temperature changes.

The correct wood is important but the seal between the lid and box also affects whether the humidor maintains the correct humidity.

So, if we check out the wood and the seals, what else do we need to put on our list before we give a humidor a good seal of approval?

They say the cedar wood is the best for humidors, so be careful when you are looking for a humidor. The other materials are not considered half as good as this wood.

Of course, it does affect the taste of the cigars with years - you cannot make a wooden item last forever. However, you could choose the correct type of wood which will serve you as long as it is possible and will not only keep your cigars in a proper condition, but also make them age and taste better. And the correct answer would be the Spanish cedar as everyone else have mentioned before.
