An awsome display!!! Looks beautiful(Desktop Vertical Display Humidor) anywere you put it. It's also very durable and well made. It comes with extra pegs for the shelves so you can arrange them anyway you like. The 75 cigar capacity is kinda pushing it though, I can fit about 12 cigars on each shelf without double stacking, so about 24-25 on each shelf but it looks kinda taky with them double stacke. Still, this is an awsome humidor and I couldn't be happier!!
I have a differnent version of this humidor. Made by the same company, almost identical. It's great. Excellent construction and I love it when friends see it and and they're like, "Wow!" The only complaint I have is it requires a lot of attention, the seal isn't the best and I think I'm sacraficing humidity. I keep my good smokes in my other humi.
WOW this humi is bad ,(Desktop Vertical Display Humidor) way more heavy-duty than i thought it would be. Girlfriend got it for me as a gift and I could not be happier with it. now she cant get mad when i blow paychecks at Cigars International so i can keep this baby stocked!!!!
Great humidor (Desktop Vertical Display)!!! This holds a decent amount on its 3 shelves and looks good doing it. With this, I don't need to open it up and lose my humidity to see what kind of glorious smoke I'm going to enjoy. I make my pick, open, grab, and close. Great buy!
"WOW" This humidor (Desktop Vertical Display Humidor) is incredible. It is very easy to maintain and I recomend this humidor to anyone looking to buy one.
Got this humidor last week, got my jelly jar, filled up the H2O tablet, but I can't get the humidity below 74. Any suggestion?
I have had this humidor for about 10 days now. I love the looks and details, but I can't get to read below 74. Got the jelly jar and the rectangular water holder.
Great humidor (Desktop Vertical Display Humidor)! Got it as a gift and it fits the bill perfectly. Displays my cigars with pride and I do not need to mess around to find my cigars as they are all laid out in their glory for me to choose! Came in mint condition and I cannot say enough good things about this humidor! What a great birthday!
Just got this for an early Xmas present box even though it said glass and fragile on it was dented, the girlfriend was panicking about it so she said to open it up and make sure it wasn't cracked. Very well packaged with styrofoam and bubble wrap you could throw the box down a flight of stairs and it wouldn't surprise me if it didn't break. This thing is a beauty I'm seasoning it as I type this, analog is off but that seems to be the case with all of em, I don't use it anyways can't wait to display my new limited edition "my Uzi weighs a ton" sticks I just picked up. Also a few nice padron series 1926 sticks are going right in front and I'm locking the door!!!!
This Humidor is very well constructed, it looks great, and keeps the humidity great, it also has a good seal. The Hydrometer came in broken but no big deal, I dont use the analog hydrometers anyway, I ordered an electronic humidifier that has one built in. But besides that it really is a beauty. Thanks CI for yet another great product, at a great price. If you are thinking about purchasing one, dont think, just do!
This is one beautiful piece of furniture. As mentioned though, you'll have to stack your cigars in order to get 75 of 'em in there. That's ok with me though. Humidification is a problem if you go with the stock humidifier. I could'nt get it past 50% (I live in Nevada where it's pretty arid). However, the guys at CI suggested I buy their tube type humidifiers and place three of them in with the cigars (along with the stock flat rectangle humidifier). That did the trick. I get a constant 73% humidity now. Boy! Do my cigars look good in there!!!
I bought this humidor about a month ago. It has a very sturdy constuction, tight seal and is a great display with a nice antique look to it. I calibrated the hygrometer when I got it and then placed it and one of my digitals inside for comparison and it's spot on. One minor issue, the humidfier needs to be recharged more often than my other humidors. I think this is probably due to the fact that although it is only a 75 cigar humidor it has a lot greater internal volume because of all the space between shelves as you can see in the picture.
I am a new owner of this gem, puchased with a cigar oasis xl electronic humidifier. Seasoned it for 72 hours with distilled water and two gel bricks. Would only come to 60 percent humidity, so none of my prize sticks went in. On a whim I put the electronic humidifier in it , and voila within 24 hours two digis and the analog were at 70 percent. Started to add my prized sticks, about ten at a time, and to my amazement, it held within minutes at 70. Now have about 100 sticks in it and it is holding steady. And the humi itself is a work of art. Really needs a place to be shown off. The analog hygrometer really works and is consistant with my digis. Would highly recommend the humi, the digis and the cigar oasis humidifier. And 5 star to CI for the service.
Got it a week ago, looks really nice but only able to get it to 50. I have two shot glasses of distilled water with the rectangular humidifier plus humi care crystal gel jar. Anybody have any remedies?
What a beautiful piece of furniture. Holds a 70/70 balance all the time. Well worth $200.00 let alone $89.99. I see some people are not happy with the seal of the unit. KEEP IT LOCKED and it is air tight. Great item, nothing but the best. A++++
Got this humodor a couple of weeks ago. What a beautiful piece of furniture. Came in perfect condition. Only issue I had is that the door was slightly misaligned. Being a woodworker I fixed it in no time. Really like the quality magnetic catches that keep the door shut without latches. It only holds 75 cigars, but it is a display masterpiece. It is also very heavy which allows you pull the door open without it sliding across the table. The huge compartment gives you a wonderful smell of spanish cedar and cigars everytime you open it. It does require a little more attention to keep the humidity where you want it, but you will enjoy doing it. You can't go wrong and for $89.00 it is truly a steal.
Had this for about a year now. It was fine the first 6 months but the last 6 have been horrible. I cannot keep stable humidity...and yes, I tried all the "common" fixes. I took all my sticks out and started inspecting...there are gaps between the cedar and door as well as between the cedar pieces holding the glass and the glass itself so it does not seal well. It appears the glue holding cedar in place around the glass has either come loose or there was not enough to begin with and the strips are popping off. As for the door strips, they are held in place with three small nails and pretty much came off in my hand. While this is a pretty piece, it has proven to be useless as a humi. I would return it if I could, but as its a year old I am sure that is no longer an option.
(Desktop Vertical Display Humidor), I just finished my indoor Tiki Bar conversion from our old dining room and wanted a cool cigar display cabinet. Basically the cigars that I intended to put in it would be from the chosen one and mega samplers, just decently good cigars for company and the regular smoke. Well, I got it and the thing is perfect. I stack my cigars in doubles and it sits as one hell of a cool piece for the room. The seal is decent and really tight if kept locked. There are magnets in the door to keep it closed, but lock it to seal it properly. The shelves are movable but I think that it looks best how the ad shows it. The hygrometer is analog and I rely on it like how I rely on a flat tire, but if you swap it out for a digital hygrometer, or atleast put a digital hygrometer in it to babysit, then alls good. I got it at 70 percent and it stays pretty well as long as you don't open the door too much, as expected. This humidor is very sturdy and the finish is really nice. I say, it's top notch for a display piece but I'd recommend keeping your best cigars in another humidor all together, preferably one without a glass window, which is common knowledge in the humidor business. As a final note, if this thing caught your eye and your debating, and now your looking at the reviews to help you consider, well... that's what I did also. This is exactly why I'm writing my review, to help recommend this to you for I felt the same way. Oh, as far as the shipping alert, it came quick. I live in SW Florida and it got here in about 4 days if I remember right. Thanks CI!
What a beauty!! Recieved this a week ago in a large box shipped with heavy duty styroform protection!! Came with great direction for seasoning and calibrating the hydrogmeter, good thing because I had no clue. I did the salt test and it was 10% off! I used distilled water in the humidifer and used hot steamy water and fogged up the windows which did the trick to stabilize the cedar without damaging, now its sits at a great 70% accurate humidity! This a a great humidor that has good weight to it and solid construction all the way through!!
First week with this humidor. Nice one overall. Pluses: looks beautiful. Can put the shelves at a 45 degree angle or flat. Clean looking. When I first got it there were a few small gaps in between the cedar frames that hold the glass in place so I filled them withj silicone caulking and weather stripped the front door (holds humidity well now but never tried to see what it was like before the mods) Negatives: Mahogany finish/paint is a little light/spotty around the edges and corners. Mine had a small scratch in the wood near the analog hygrometer. Hygrometer hole is a little sloppy. Cedar shelves had a bit of white fuzzy mold in the cut out slots when it arrived but I scraped it away before seasoning.
"My fiancé bought this for me as a birthday present, This thing looks great in the pictures.. But.. Looks even better in person! It's only going to hold 75 if you double stack, however, in my opinion, looks fine stacked. Analog Hygrometer looks very nice but is rarely accurate (as most are). I have the bottom tray on the first line (pegs included) which leaves ample room underneath for your humidification weapon of choice and thus allows for maximum smoke storage. This thing would be well worth the $200 MSRP, but at CIs $89.95, it is an absolute steal!
Really nice display humidor for the price. The only issue with this piece is the seal, It has some spots where the door can let light in when using the flash light trick. It may take more to maintain 70/70 but the look and construction of this well made humi make up for it. 8 out 10.
Just received it yesterday, steady frame, good looking just needs more attention than your avg desktop humidor.
Humidor looks great virtually on anything. It's also very durable and well made, the only flaw is the hinges they look very old. Still, this is an awesome humidor overall.
Just ordered this today and can't wait until it arrives. Will be a nice display for my cigars. Will post again once I have it set up. Haven't been disappointed yet by CI so I'm looking forward to my new arrival.
I got this humidor in two days ago. I'm loving it! It's a beautiful display piece. It's holding between 68-69% humidity. Now to fill it up! Time to order some more cigars!
The display is extraordinary, and the craftsmanship is of a quality much higher than I expected for such an eye-catching stick holder.......especially at this low price point. The only downside is that I have found it difficult to use the included humidifer. It did not hold when I placed it at the top, and it doesn't seem to work efficiently when placed at the bottom. The best solution I could think of was to either use the humidification jars, or to apply mulitple smaller humidifers at the top and bottom. Regardless, I am thrilled with this offering and foresee many years of enjoyment admiring my sticks through the glass.
This thing is a beast. Right out of the box (after 36 hr. seasoning) it holds tight @ 65 RH without problem (both analog and digital). Aesthetics are that of designer quality and leave little to be desired. Very satisfied with the overall construction. A tight squeeze @ 75 cigars, but that's what I've got in it right now and still maintaining a gorgeous presentation. A no brainer really...
(Note: A great feature to this produce is the shelf placement. Shelf pegs can be placed evenly [for level presentation of trays] or at an off-set angle [for 45 degree presentation]. This is a great unit and offers significant diversity. For example, I've personally set the bottom tray up off the bottom of the humidor and placed Heartfielt Beads underneath for bottom humidification and attached the supplied humidification [flower show rectangle] to the top. That way humidification comes from both above and below all trays.)
overall the thing looks awesome... but theres a problem with the seal i did the flashlight test an found numerous locations where light got thru.. not to happy with the purchase
It's a master piece guys!!! Very satisfied with the product, came in great condition, fast del and most important thing: holds the humidity right at 70 so u can't go wrong with that...
Gorgeous! One small nick upon arrival, but was easily taken care of with furniture marker. Keeps a constant and steady temp/humidity after a 48hr seasoning. My prized sticks are already in it!
UNDENIABLY AMAZINGLY AWESOME! Pictures can not do this thing justice! It is such a piece of artwork and beauty. If I had enough places to put them, (and cigars to fill them) I'd buy 20 more. There aren't enough stars to properly rate this. If you told me it cost between $400-$600 I would believe it in a second. Anyone that has any complaint about this other then it made to many people jealous doesn't deserve it.
This Humidor is awesome! Great value, I strongly recommended!
Great humidor for the price! It is not a custom box but I was very pleased with the finished product. It is definitely more susceptible to tempature swings so make sure to keep in a somewhat temp controlled room all the time. My only regret is not going bigger. I filled this humi up quicker than I thought.
Let me just say THIS IS BEAUTIFUL! Such a great piece to have in my man cave, everyone that comes over complements me on it. Great wood finish and color, had some sticky stuff on the glass but it came off quick and easy, I have noticed a few minor problems. One I have noticed being when you shut the front door sometimes the magnets shut the door kind of hard and it moves the analog hygrometer making it incorrect, but this isn't a big issue if you just put a digital one inside witch, you should do anyways to know the temp. The second issue is the amount of space it says 75+ but honestly your only doing that if you triple stack all of your cigars; which just makes it look like 10 lbs of crap in a 5 lb bucket. I also have a wide variety of brands and cigars, and I like to see them all, so about 50 cigars is a good number that way you only have to double stack the same cigars and you can see all the different cigars and brands. Overall worth the price and very pleased with my purchase.
Omg I love this! Just got it, it looks really good in my smoking room but my lock kinda sticks but over all 1-10 I give this product a 10 hands down.
Have this beauty sitting at my work desk, looks great. very glad I chose this one. I did everything I was supposed to do to setup humidor and after a few weeks it finally stabilized. You just need patience I guess.
Great humidor! Very pleased with the price and its ability to hold humidity. Can anyone share with me whether or not the lower tray is able to be removed and slanted at 45*? Mine feels like it wants to move, but I don't want to force anything. Thanks, and Happy Thanksgiving all.
I received my humidor as a Christmas gift from my wife and I set it up in a good location. Thank God it has a lock because there are people who claim they smoke cigars and they actually waste them and as much as good quality cigars cost... I be John Broen if I watch someone mess up a stogie (now that's disrespectful). At first I couldn't get it to lock because the latch was upside down and the drawers were sliding and the door wouldn't shut tight but with a few alterations my humidor is up and running and keeping my cigars fresh.. I would honestly recommend this to a friend.
Excellent humidor, great look, fits my needs perfectly.
I am a long time cigar smoker and this humidor is the TOP value as far as holding humidity and appearance. Forget the drawer type or box type humidors...they do not suspend the cigars for 100% surface humidification like this one does.
First thing to do when getting this humidor is to wipe the entire inside down with a damp sponge. Then you will need to spend an extra 6 dollars or so to buy another elongated humidifier bar that is magnetized just like the ONE that came with the humidor. Mount one humidification bar at the center top, and the other at the center bottom. I am able to keep a perfect 76-78% humidity this way (just the way I like my smokes) with no problem.
The seal, hinges, and appearance are perfect. I get compliments from my wife's friends that are not married to cigar smokers. Looks like a furniture piece. I cannot give this humidor high enough praise. I have smoked cigars over 25 years and this is the BEST...hands down.
All the reviews said it was nice, but wow! This is a very nice unit, great value, fast shipping thanks CI as always you rock!
I have to start with, WOW! I received this humidor as a 50th Birthday gift. I've been looking at it for a long time, studying the reviews, and trying to decide if this was the right one for me. My only question now is, why didn't I get this sooner?? It is a beautifully constructed, much heavier than I expected, and fully adjustable piece of art. From the three multi-position shelves, to the gold tasseled brass keys (you get two), to the engraveable faceplate, it's just perfect.
It is exactly what I wanted!!! I have the hygrometer calibration in progress, and cannot wait for my next day off to start seasoning this piece. It arrived with not a single mark on it. You gotta worry about anything with 4 glass sides, but I can tell you, it's well packed!!
And I have to give a HUGE shout out to CI. My wife ordered this on the evening of the January 28th. It was ON MY PORCH by noon, on the 31st!!! I don't know how they do it, but I could not be more impressed. I've always given their customer service 5 stars, but they knocked this one out of the park!!!
So if you're waffling, I would say take the plunge. You will not beat the quality and capacity, for the price. I LOVE the fact that I can now SEE what I have waiting for me. The Coleman Coolidor worked great when it had to, but it's time to relegate that back to the garage and it's rightful task of Frosty Pop Master!!
After reading all the reviews, and now seeing the piece for myself, I have absolutely no concerns about the quality of this piece, or it's ability to provide the proper protection and humidification my sticks deserve.
I know my wife won't see this review, but a HUGE thanks to her for a great choice. And once again, THANK YOU CI for your outstanding service to the cigar smokers in this great nation!!!
Absolutely love this humidor. It's the second one I've ever bought so I'm not to hip to all of the things I'm supposed to look for, but I can tell you that the display is beautiful. It's well made and durable, and it gives my living room a touch of class. I've heard that Sure Seal is the way to go and this humidor has the stamp. The only trouble I have is getting the hygrometer to read more than 65%. Other than that, great buy for $100. I definitely recomend this buy to anyone looking to upgrade their humidor size, or for just a way to show off your cigars. You're the best C.I.
Seals awesome and holds humidity perfect. Per other reviews I also purchased 2 Humi-Care bead jars along with the humidor. I use those and the humidifier that came with the unit and it holds 70 percent perfectly. Would recommend as a purchase to keep your nice cigars in with no worries.
Doesn't have exquisite craftsmanship; there are minor flaws all around. However, it's amazing for the $99.00 price and I absolutely LOVE it! If you're on the fence about it, I hope this helps you off of it!
Love this humidor! Seasoned in less than 48 hours! If you don't mind double stacking I have 65 sticks in it now and can easily get 15+ more into it before triple stacking. This unit does have SureSeal Technology and has stabilized very well. Factory hygrometer was off quite a bit, but since being calibrated it has stayed true. Only wish CI offered additional shelves for this unit. You can easily add one maybe two shelves if you keep them flat. They are out there on other "cheap humidor" sites for about $15 each. Overall I am very pleased and would recommend this unit to anyone.
This is a very good humidor for the price. They can fit a very good amount of cigars. Very well-built; very happy with the product. Overall a good purchase; I recommend it.
Great looking humidor. Seasoned in one day and holding charge in the desert heat. Very pleased with the newest addition to the man cave. Can't wait to fill it to the brim with great cigars, every color, shape, size, and strength.
The price was awesome, got it via 'Make Me an Offer' It looks fabulous on my desk in my study and best of all I could see the sticks on display, not like the other humis out there. It did have minor scratches, but touched it up with a stain-marker and looks great. Thanks CI for making it affordable and making me feel like a Millionare. You have a customer for life!
Excellent Humidor, the seal around the door is tight. I have had the unit for 1 month now and it maintains a humidity level between 68 and 74 rh.
I spent several days seasoning and then added some cigars. After several days of seasoning the cedar, it began to stabilize. I was concerned if the seal would be good enough since it was a side door and didn't have the weight/gravity to help keep a tight fit. I have been pleasantly surprised how well it maintains a solid seal. I added the Cigar Oasis XL to provide a better control of the enviorment, but rarely do I hear it even distribute moisture. This is a beautiful piece and a great conversation item. I will most likely get another one soon to display more of my favorites everyday cigars! This does require a longer setup and perhaps a bit more maintenance, but a fun piece. I would recommend this to anyone who takes pride in their collection and wants to display them.
Very pleased. Just what I was hoping for, and what a deal!
Can't put into words how happy I am that I found CI. I've been getting some great cigars at a lower price than pretty much anywhere else that I could find. Not only that, but this humidor managed to arrive a day early. What a great surprise to come home to after a long day at work. Letting my humidifier do its work overnight before I put my cigars into it. Looks great and seems to have a pretty solid seal. Eventually I'll have to get a digital hygrometer, but the analog one that this unit comes with will have to do for now. Sturdy packing with tons of foam, and not a single nick or ding. Thanks, CI, for the great products at great prices.
great humidor, construction is fantastic, and holds humidity great. Will invest in a electric humidifier next. great shipping and packing. Thank you CI...
Great size and is a conversational peace up in the "loft / man cave." Ordered two and the first one came with scratches on it. really disappointed with that. However, everything else about them fits.
Great Humidor, SEASON SEASON SEASON!!!. once we got it all good to go it works flawlessly.
Got this Humidor for my boyfriends Christmas Present. He opened it early and we have been enjoying it ever since. The quality of the wood is very nice, closes tightly. Beautiful way to present your cigars.... There was just a TAD ding in the front of the unit but it is easily overlooked.
Awsome addition to my man cave !! Great Price...
Over all I am happy with this humidor. It seals well, looks good and I can view my favorite smokes when ever I wish. The only issues I have with it are a few minor nicks and one indention. Nothing noticeable from a distance. I'd give this an 8 out of 10.
