One of the most affordable cigar humidors you can buy, this mahogany Private Stash cigar humidor will keep up to 18 cigars fresh on your travels and your desktop. Lined in kiln-dried Spanish cedar, the lid has a good seal, and makes a good starter box for new cigar smokers. (Humidifier included.)
This is my first humidor, as I am a new cigar smoker. I figured I was taking a chance with this because of the price, however the quality seems to be pretty decent. I installed the hygrometer I purchased and after letting the lid stay closed for an hour or so it was reading around 62%, so I just filled the humidifier and let it rest for a couple days and it was at 70%. I put a few sticks in it and it s been rock steady at 70%. For a new smoker like me I think it s perfect. The lid fits snug and it has a nice finish.
First off it will be much smaller than you expect. But it s perfect for having on a desk or night stand, heck even just throwing it on the coffee table. It looks great. Will hold a week or two worth of sticks and if you season it right with a Boveda pack and not with distilled water it will be perfectly fine and no damage at all. Bottom line: great starter/private stash and looks great.
Nice looking, good seal but lid hinges basically feel off.
What can I say about this humidor? Sure it s tiny, but I ve never had a problem with it. I ve had it now for 3 years. It was what I trusted my cigars to when I first started smoking. Humidity and temperature has never been fickle in this guy. Something I fight occasionally with my larger humidor. Instead of retiring this dependable little guy I ve moved it to my room and have filled it with my most precious stogies to keep prying eyes away. =]Just remember! This is SMALL it s for travel or like what I m doing a private stash!This would work well for a new smoker who doesn t have a collection going, and just needs something to hold his weeks supply.
