How to Buy a Humidor: A 5 Point Guide
Humidors come in many styles. You can choose a humidor with trays, high gloss finish, with legs, etc. There are so many to choose from, that you need to know the basics to ensure you are getting a good quality box that will preservce your cigars for years to come.
You want to start off with a humidor that is at least 50% larger than you think you will need because inevitably you will start to store more cigars. It is better to plan ahead. Remember you can put fewer cigars in a large humidor but you can't put more in a small one!
You want to make sure that when you close the lid of the humidor that it makes a nice whoose sound as it closes. If it puffs or whooshed when it closes, you are golden. when purchasing online, and you can't actually see or touch the humidor, it is important to ask the proprieter if their humidors whoosh when they close. I am sure you know where I am going with this. All of the humidors we offer close with a nice whoosh. Keep in mind that humidors with glass tops and heavy wood are not going to whoosh. That doesn't mean they are bad, the lids are just too heavy to displace the whoosh of air.
Quality cigar humidors have a Spanish Cedar lining. It's chosen because it can handle the humidity required without warping. Anything else inside a humidor is silly. You want the cedar to be kiln dried, which means they literally dry it out to remove all the sap. This prevents a icky mess on all your cigars. Insert whatever Clinton joke you want to here. But seriously, Spanish Cedar is where it is at. The indians used to use it to build boats because it is water friendly. The cedar should also be non-aromatic. This isn't the cedar you put in a gerbil cage or a closet. This is a different cedar. It doesn't smell.
Make sure that your choice of humidor complements your own personal style. There really isn't too much to say here. If you don't like it on the desk or whever you are going to put it, it doesn't really matter how well it works. I mean, if a world famous chef made you spaghetti and colored it blue you probably wouldn't eat it. So why would you want an ugly ass humidor sitting on your desktop?
Ensure that the humidor is good quality. If the lid warps, or the hinges fail, the seal will be broken. Then, all you'll have is a nice-looking storage box. Always remember, "Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten." That being said, price doesn't dictate quality at all. I have seen humidors costing thousands of dollars made poorer than the inexpensive boxes I sell. In fact, December 2003, Cigar Afficionado Magazine reviewed 10 or so humidors. Most of them were boxes costing thousands, yes, thousands of dollars. They also reviewed one of mine which sells for $199. My humidor got a B-, and a humidor costing over 5 times more money got a C-. So price isn't the determining factor. Make sure the hinges are good, the joinery it good, and above all, make sure it has a nice warranty or guarantee.
