Overview of Features
We’ll start with something that has nothing to do with the appearance of this humidor, but instead, its capacity. It can hold up to 150 cigars with ease, so anyone who likes to stock up their cigar supply well in advance can do so.
When those cigars are in there, they are protected thanks to the patented ‘Sureseal’ technology, which is renowned for its ability to keep cigars fresh and protected for years.
Part of that preservation is how well this humidor keeps humidity levels optimized which is can be attributed in part to the Spanish cedar lining.
Also aiding this is the humidifier which comes with the product. There is also an analog hygrometer, which is set in a brass frame to add some nice styling on the inside.
Obviously, it is the exterior design, which is going to appeal to many, and nowhere more than on the top of the box. It has, appropriately, a tobacco leaf inlay, which makes this humidor definitely stand out among the rest.
Other design features includes a brass handle on the side, an engravable brass name plate, and a gold-plated lock and key, along with a gold colored tassel, which adds the final flourish to this humidor’s classy appearance
How to Use It
With regards to the tray and the dividers, it should be fairly self-evident how these are put together. Thereafter the other items you need to turn your attention to are the hygrometer and the humidifier.
You need to locate these into the two areas on the inside of the lid, and with hygrometer, this needs to be glued into position. In truth, the glue provided is not great so you might want to use a stronger one of your own.
Once everything is where it should be, you can add your cigars, and you also have the added sense of security that the humidor can be locked using the small gold-plated key.
This might be something especially welcomed by those who have children and do not want them gaining access to your cigars.
