The Whitetail is a great humidor for your office, living room, or cigar den. Fully lined with kiln-dried Spanish cedar, this piece features a glasstop lid so you can gaze at your sacred lovelies whenever you please. Better still, it's equipped with SureSeal Technology to ensure a perfect seal and optimum moisture distribution and control. What more could you ask for?
Features include:- 50 cigar capacity- Tempered glass lid- Premium Spanish cedar lining- SureSeal Technology- 1 round humidifier- 1 glass hygrometer- 1 Spanish cedar divider- Hidden quadrant hinges
I have two of these humidors- one for my top shelf cigars, and one for my giveaways. The Pros: Inexpensive, with a fairly accurate (+/- 2) hydrometer built in. I like the glass top so that I can view my secondary hydrometer. It looks fairly attractive, and like the color.
The Cons: The hinge on my 2nd humidor came out of the wood. I think it was shipped this way, but I did not notice for several months. Also, the humidity seems to fluctuate more than some humidors, although I have heard this is common with glass top humidors. I noticed that there is not a tight seal on where the hydrometer fits into the front of the case. I suspect if this was a tighter seal, it would maintain a more constant humidity level.
Overall, this is a good buy for the price.
Note: do not let any liquids stand on the top. I set a glass down for approximately 15 minutes, and it bubbled the finish.
I bought this humidor last week. I was really pleased how nice it is for the price. Seasoning it took about 2 days. I put my cigars in it and almost a week later it's holding 70% nicely. I would definitely recommend this to any one. Glass top is a nice touch; you can look in and see your cigars without opening.
Just got mine yesterday and currently seasoning. Looks great; only issue I have is that the starter pack option I got only came with 2 wipes. The instructions said to wipe the sides every 24 hrs 2-3 times. The wipes are single use and I would think the pack would come with enough to make it the longest case scenario.
Great little Humidor. Gave one to my Son and had to get myself another. Wiped down one time and put Black Ice in it and it holds right where it needs to be. Perfect!
Excellent Seal. Living in a humid climate makes keeping the humidor at the proper level a challenge. However, with a great seal, there is no issue. Once seasoned, it held strong at 70% without having to use the humidifier for 3 weeks.
Got this through MMAO and the price is well worth it. It's holding humidity great and I like the glass a lot. I can decide what I want without having to waste time with it open.
Just got mine in and for $25.00 you just can't beat it. I was going to make my own, but there is no way I could have done it cheaper than what CI was selling it for. I have no issues with the shipping and no damage. I can't wait to fill it up. I am currently calibrating the hygrometer and it is coming in just fine. Don't miss out on this deal. If you let it pass I promise you you will regret it.
This is my first humidor. It does a good job keeping my cigars at the proper humidity. A digital hygrogemer would be better, the analog doesn't seem to move and I have to keep my eye on the amount of liquid in the disk.
I got this humi with the CI xmas bundle. Great humi with a good seal. Definitely calibrate the analog hygrometer when you get it. Mine was off my 13%. Other than that, I love it
This thing is great. It's probably only a 30 max but the seal is rock solid.
Just received my humidor, Fantastic value. I am very happy with my purchase and will buy from your company again. Keep up the great work.
Love the make me an offer section. Made buying easy!
A well made and elegant display...it is a beautiful way for me to show off my collection. The only way it could be better is for it to be bigger so I can carry even more cigars! Very happy with this purchase!
As others have mentioned, this humidor normally holds its humidity very, very well, although it will dry out if you live in a cold, dry climate. I have to watch it daily during the Winters here in Ohio, but it is perfectly fine the rest of the year.
For the price, I was expecting cheap materials and poor construction. This humidor does not appear cheap nor poorly made. The only downside, aside from drying out in the bone-dry winters (I imagine any humidor would dry out in this weather) is the size. It holds a good amount of cigars, sure, but if this is your first humidor you'll soon be wishing for something larger!
The humidor looks great and a great price, I am a newbie to cigars. I have followed the directions to the letter. So far so good! Can't wait to add more cigars to the 10 that came included.
For those of you thinking about getting this humidor, you get this humidor free with a new member combo pack with 10 awesome cigars including 5 Vegas, CAO, Gurkha etc. just the cigars alone we're worth more than $40. This humidor is great.
Since buying this nice humidor with a cigar sampler a couple of months ago, I have spent more on cigars than I have in my life previously - which still isn't a lot, but still. I was a bit put off that it came with instructions -I expected it to be: open box, put cigars in box, close box. I didn't bother to season it, but I did salt-test the hygrometer and it seems pretty accurate. I'm not in love with having the humidifier stuck on the lid--I'll probably buy one I can place more nicely. I'm planning to move my cigars to my new, bigger humidor as soon as it's seasoned, then season this one to store Antono 1970s and Dark Corojos, while keeping the less expensive cigars in its Tuscan Cherry big brother. So, a very nice starter humidor at a good price, but beware: "starter" is the key word, here. It will end up costing you hundreds of dollars. But you'd have probably just wasted it on food and stuff.
Excellent finish and look. Seasoned easily and is holding great just a couple days out of the box.
This humidor was a great purchase! It is seasoned, holding 30+ cigars and is holding steady in the ideal humidity range. Not to mention that the finish matches my house perfectly.
Great Quality humidor....Nice addition to my collection..............
The seal is not the best but it seems to be holding the humidity well. It is a nice looking humidor.
Great humidor! Absolutely love it.
I got this on MMAO at a heck of a price. Really nice, hygrometer works (did salt test) and it's seasoning as I type. It's the same manufacturer as my 100 count humidor, so it's good quality... But hey, it looks nice and I'm sure it will serve it's purpose for years to come!
Bought this for a friend as he had started a cigar collection without a humidor to preserve them in (I know, party foul, right?). Anyway, I helped him by seasoning it and getting it ready for his thirsty cigars. As far as the construction goes: The corners are tight, sure seal technology assures a good seal on the lid. The glass is well mounted it doesn't appear it will prevent proper humidification. The included divider seems just a touch too short and didn't securely divide up the humidor for the one I got, not sure if that's a common problem here or if I just got the odd one out. Once cigars are in place, it held position fine, so really not a huge problem unless there was ever a plan to use it as a barricade in the humidor. The finish was clear/smooth/and free of defects, exactly what I'd expected to see.
As far as the capacity is concerned, once the humidor was seasoned and hygrometer caliberated, I turned the humidor over to my friend so he could load it up. He easily put 10 7" Churchills, 30 5" robusto sized, and a handful of misc length cigars. He counted 48 in the box, with a little bit of room to spare. I guess what I'm trying to say is unless you plan on filling this with big ring sized Churchill's you should be able to get to the higher end of the count.
Overall it's a sturdy/decent box and for the price, would consider one for Acid 'infused' cigars at some point in the future.
I have 2 of these humidors, nice for a desk top. But if you plan on having more than 45 big cigars then look at a table unit of something bigger. Works great and keeps my sticks of goodness at 71% year round .
I've had this humidor for a few days and it seems to work decently. I calibrated the hygrometer and it's still keeping my cigars at around 75% or 76%, even though I followed the directions verbatim. A little high but I'm not too worried because I'm sure it could just be a calibration issue. Construction on the humidor was decent, but the spanish cedar veneer was peeling a tiny bit around where the hygrometer is inserted. Again, not a big deal but I just wanted to point it out. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied for the price and this is a decent introductory humidor.
Just got this humi on sale and what a deal I'm seasoning it as I speak ci took great care on packaging it no cracks or dings I love it thank you cigars international you guy are awesome
After about 9 months, the screws all decided they were done and came out and would not hold securely. The hygrometer was far from accurate. It's a box. It holds cigars. You can put some stuff in to make it stay humid, but good luck for anything long term or anywhere near accurate. Save your money on this one
I was looking For a small desktop humidor and stumbled across this unit. The unit was promptly shipped and arrived in good condititon. Once properly seasoned this humidor has worked very well. No complaints at all, this is a nice looking humidor that works perfectly at an amazing price. definetly would recomend this product.
great humidor; I gave it away as a gift and my brother loves it
So far so good, I seasoned it by wiping it clean with distilled water and a clean sponge... gave it about a week to come up to humidity and calibrated the included hygrometer using the salt test and adjuster (off by about 5 degrees). My only complaint is it couldnt maintain humidity with just the additona humi-care stick i purchased for this, i also had to utilize the disc that came with it to keep at around 7075% humidity, i have about 25-30 sticks int here now so maybe if i put some more in it would stablize better but for now it works great and the smoke taste excellent... You cant go wrong if your just starting to appreciate a fine smoke!
I bought one for myself as my first humidor. It's a great looking wood, very dark. The humidifier is ok, nothing special. The gauge is part of what seals the humidor, so there is no getting rid of it. I actually liked it enough and got it for such a good price I got another for a friend!
Great product. Nice to have on my coffee table for a quick pick.
I've had this as my first humidor for a year now. Still works almost perfectly. Every now and again the humidity has a weird drop, but these problems tend to fix themselves after a day or two. Time to upgrade to a larger one!
Great humidor for the cost. The hydrometer was off by a few degrees but an simple adjustment after and overnight salt calibration fixed that issue. Mine had a couple small splits in the cedar near the hindge but will have zero effect on the seal. The seal is tight and a much better fit than I expected for the cost. The lid had two nails that poked through the cedar but like the small splits will have no effect on storing cigars. Overall a solid low cost humidor that will keep a small number of smokes fresh. I don't think I'd recommend this humidor for long term storage or extended aging but for holding some sticks for a few weeks or as an overflow humidor, it's a great buy. My advise would to order a gel or crystal style humidity pack to replace the cheap green floral one it ships with. I used mine to help season it and tossed it when done.
Great starter humidor. Looks nice and was easy to get up and going. Would definitely suggest to anyone looking for a great looking humidor.
A very nice humidor. Solid and well made. Definitely a bargain!
Excellent starter humidor. My only regret is that i should have gone with the greater capacity Whitetail 2. Shopping on CI is addictive, especially the MMAO page. I can't help myself.
Decent build quality and finish for an inexpensive unit. I could not get it to maintain humidity after two weeks of seasoning. I ended up having to seal the glass top and around the hygrometer with silicone. Seems to be holding very well now. (Be sure to use aquarium or food grade pure silicone.) This should be a good starter humidor or an inexpensive back-up for your sticks. Looks nice sitting on my cabinet.
i luv it
Excellent starter humidor. Works as advertised.
Got this humidor after reading the reviews, they were right on good looking entry humi. Seasoning was easy and painless hygrometer was off 10", but I'll be using a digital anyway. I would recommend this humidor to a friend, pricing was excellent. Enough feedback time to order some sticks...thx CI
Well built and arrived in great shape, as to expect the analog hygrometer isn't much to write home about, but luckily I had a digital handy... Again, has a nice seal and holds RH.
Great humidor! Excellent size and quality, the hygrometer was ok in my experience, I tested with salt and it was 70%. It really keeps the humidity stable since it is perfectly sealed. Minor concern is the wood separator which is loose and it keeps falling.
It looks awesome. The only problem I've got is that it's taking forever to "break it in." I've had it for a little while now, and it has yet to achieve the ideal ratio. That being said, it's getting closer and closer... and adding a bunch of cigars at one time can slow the process big time. All-in-all though, I really like it. I would recommend it.
I'm very pleased with the quality and performance of the Whitetail Glasstop. Coupled with the Humi-Care power stick, it's been holding steady at 67% for the first week. The analog hygrometer was easy to calibrate, but doesn't have the accuracy of my digital. Take advantage of the MMAO on this humidor while it's still offered...you won't be sorry!! Customer service and delivery is first class with Cigars Int.
Got this humidor this morning and everything seems to be OK so far. I started the seasoning process and the humidity rose from 60 to 66 already. (about 45 minutes after I seasoned it) Not sure if that is normal or not, but other than that, it's a pretty humidor and the Spanish cedar smells and looks great.
Nothing special or elaborate. Decent seal when closed, and for being in Colorado (no humidity), it held the humidity very well. I determined that the hygrometer was about 5% off on the low side. With this humidor you are really paying for what you get - if you just want to store a lot of really expensive cigars, you might want to go with something else. If you are just buying a few samplers and are newer to the cigar world, this is a good buy.
I got mine the day after I ordered it and seasoned it for 24 hours. My hygrometer was actually spot on when I did a salt test. It's loaded up with some goodies and can't wait to try my first one. It's a great looking humidor and smells fantastic.
I bought this humidor about 7 months ago when I began to "dabble" with cigars. The analog hygrometer works perfectly and adds a bit of a nostalgic look to the humidor. It holds great at 70%! This is great for the beginner and as previously mentioned before me, the glass-top makes it a perfect selection because you can see all of your choices without having to compromise humidity to choose.
The hygrometer came with small scratches and didn't adjust correctly. So far, the humidor seems to be able to hold moisture well and I am fairly pleased with it as a decoration for my desk. It's a nice piece to view some beautiful cigars.
Got this in a sampler and humidor combo, and I'm glad I got this. As my first humidor, I watched all of the videos on how to season the humidor. Did the salt test, and my hygrometer was off by 15%. Wiped down the interior with distilled water and put in a Xikar gel puck I picked up at my local smoke shop as I don't trust the one given in the box. The seal is great, and the wood looks beautiful.
What a great deal and a beautiful humidor. I loved the price point, especially with the glass top so I could stare at the boys without disturbing the humidity, and it's built with the utmost quality as well. I will say that generous seasoning is a must for this one though, the cedar took in multiple coats of water without hesitation. However, once the wood was fully saturated it had a nice tight seal, perfect in my book. I purchased a digital hygrometer too, since analog can be inaccurate, but I calibrated both and will be using both as a form of redundancy. Highly recommended!
Ordered this humidor as a nice addition to my computer desk. The first one showed up with the side wood split in half. Contacted customer support and they shipped a replacement the same day, second arrived a week later. Very pleased with this item, looks great, seals great, and got a great deal on mmao.
Just seasoned mine today and boy does this thing smell great! I seasoned it with a wipe down, sponge +humidifier for 24 hours. Holds water really well, sponge was still damp and the weight of the humidifier was almost the same. Took out the sponge and just humidifier and weight didn't change after 24 hours. So I put in my humi-care gel bottle and let it sit for 24 hours and the read out of the hygrometer was a PERFECT 70% humidity. For a cheap humidor, the quality is really good! I recommend to anyone!
As stated above, hygrometer came shipped WAY off, so make sure you calibrate! Once seasoned, it holds really well with just the puck and distilled water. Obviously some methods are steadier than others, and I have since moved on to Xikar crystals, but truly, this one held almost rock steady at 70% with just the included humidifier and distilled water, and that was in rather dry Kansas Mid-winter and a half-empty humidor.
Great humidor for the money. It seasoned very nicely and has a great seal...maybe a little TOO good! Keeping my stock very fresh! I'd definitely recommend if you need something cheap and effective
Nice little humidor. Great solid construction. Holding at a perfect 70% for me. I got an AWESOME price on the Make Me An Offer page. No Complaints for my starter humidor!
A excellent humidor, lets me gaze at my jewels and keeps them perfect. Make sure you calibrate the hydrometer though, mine was off by 15
Nice looking humidor, did the salt test and adjusted for 72 humidity. Seasoned the humidor, but the hygrometer would not get above 59. Recalabrated the hygrometer again and still same result. Brought a digital one and found the humidor environment was great. Never use an analog again.
I and a friend both bought this humidor with an included cigar deal. We're in PA and both of us have had trouble balancing the humidity this winter, but not having an issue with our other humidors (3 others between us). The problem seems to be the way the lid fits. Rather than the lip of the lid fitting outside of the main box, it slips inside. If it's even fairly full, you must be very careful to keep your top layer or two away from the sides or the lip will lift slightly and the humidity level becomes difficult to maintain. If your cigars have shifted and you don't pay attention when you close the lid, it can catch on and actually tear the wrapper. It's an OK humidor, but it works best if you keep the cigar level below the lip of the lid.
Got this humi with 10 cigars. Since then I have purchased about 60 and have been storing them in this humidor. It has been keeping a very steady 69% RH. The screws on one of the hinges needed to be screwed down when I first got it and the finish isnt very good. But for the price you really cant go wrong for a safe place to store your handrolled beauties.
I was very impressed with the quality of this humidor for the money. It's not a $100+ dollar humidor but compared to some other inexpensive one's I've had this one had a far better quality hygrometer and build. You can't go wrong for a starter humidor and if you get it with the cigar combo deal it's like getting 10 decent cigars for free!!
I am new to the "cigar world" and was in need of a humidor. This was perfect for the price. The humidor is very nice and looks great on my bookshelf. I recommend purchasing the two-fer pack of CI gel jars to get the humidor properly conditioned for use. Also, before placing one (save the second for another humidor, one is the perfect size for this humidor) jar inside, make sure you calibrate the removable hygrometer (another really nice feature of the humidor) using the "salt test" on this website. Mine is holding a humidity of 69% to 70% percent.
Just got this Humidor and love it, beautiful finish plenty of space for a starter collection, and made of good Spanish Cedar. In order to avoid the problem with humidifier placement I recommend using a glass jar humidifier with beads and placing it in a good corner. This way it will not detract from the display properties of this magnificent humidor.
This is a great humidor if you like a glass top instead of solid wood. The only problem, to mount the humdifier in the right place, you have to place it on the glass. When you do that, it takes away the beauty of the glass since there is a round humidifier in sight as you look thrugh the glass. Other than that, it is easy to season, keeps my humidor right at 70%, using the happy face humidifier. This is the second humidor I have purchased from CI, and I am happy with both of them. In fact, I just received a new 300 count from CI since I'm tired of keeping track of 3 50 count, and one 150 count.
This humidor is a very nice model for those with small cigar collections or those who just mainly like to purchase a box at a time to save money and need to store them. The only issue I am having, although it could be due to our Pennsylvania winter weather, is that I am having a heck of a time keeping the humidity right. I use the care pillows as well as humidification fluid within the humidifier that came with it; however it peaks at about 70 and once open will fall to 60 unless you stick a damp sponge into the box. Hopefully I didn't get bad one, however, for the price it is a beautiful piece of art that will keep your smokes safe with the included hygrometer.
Saw this deal online, a good starter humidor for those who have UNDER 40 cigars. I highly recommend getting a HUMI-CARE crystal gel system to make to keep your cigars in tip top shape.
