The ultimate solution for long home-aging! Handcrafted with a rich cherry finish, sturdy brass hinges, Spanish cedar lining and able to hold up-to approximately 16 cigar boxes! Wooden trays are also included for loose cigars, plus a complete humidifying system. A must-have for the big collector.
Perfect seal. Large trays allow stacking on both levels. Plenty of storage space in the bottom. Carlos in The Desert wrote a great review and is right about the difference in humidity levels between the two trays and the very bottom of the humi. If you stack both trays, you ll see somewhere around 70% humidity on the top tray, slightly less on the second tray, and several points less at the bottom. I took one of the humidifiers I put 2 250 count Xikar humidifiers in and put it in the bottom, and added a small 150 count Xikar humi jar at the bottom. I ve got small Xikar hygrometers on each level; the humidity is perfect throughout now. Great humidifier! Def worth $150!
Just received it. Packed well. Nice addition to my desk top. Now I can pursue the hobby without worry of where to put my Cuban sandwiches.I can smoke daily from the desk top and store the special morsels for just the right occasion. Great construction. Definitely has the sure seal technology. Plenty of room. I am ordering the Xikar 250 humidifiers 2 and a Xikar digital hygrometer. That is what I use on my desktop model without any trouble. It does come with humidifiers and a hygrometer but, Like I said, I already have a tried and true method so I am going to stick with that. Good luck and enjoy the hobby. Thanks Famous!
I bought this about 6 months ago. I ve never had a problem with it. It holds humidity and there is tons of space. Yes, because of the size you re gonna have to play around with your humidification methods. I ve got a pound of Heartfelt Beads in the bottom and it keeps the whole thing at 65% -the RH of the beads I have in there. If you want to save money by buying by the box, this is the way to go. I have all kinds of different cigars resting easy in this bad boy. A
The bad part: this thing does not hold 400 cigars unless all you re putting in are short robustos. The good thing: size, the outside color, the inside is completely lined with cedar, the trays are a decent size- I m able to stack two cigars on top of each other on the bottom rack as well as the top one. I would say I have aprox 60 cigars on each tray. Here s the sweet part. I live in a 20-40% humidity environment and I have no issues with this humidor. I usually preseason my smaller humidors once a year because of small leaks. I ve had this baby for two years and have yet to re-season it. I use the humidification devices that it came with, not the best, but they work. I have noticed that the bottom part of the humidor does not keep my cigars are fresh as the ones on the top even with one humidification device towards at the bottom. Do not leave very dry cigars down at the bottom of the humidor or you ll risk drying them out even further. Great place to put overly humid stogies though! You won t regret the purchase.
