Best Value Humidors: How To Get The Best Cigar Storage For Your Money

What is value for money in a humidor?

It may be something like a tupperdor, a Boveda bag, or something higher-end. We’re not necessarily talking low-cost, but rather high quality proportional to cost.

For example, Daniel Marshall humidors are a great value for a made-in-America wooden humidor. Meanwhile, Quality Importers offer Chinese-made humidors that are of very good quality for cheap prices.

Essentially, your particular needs determine the value you get from a certain humidor. If you need a humidor to elegantly display various cigars when you have company over, like Paul, the Boveda Large Acrylic excels.

The quantity you need to store is a major factor in determining what you need. If you only keep 10 cigars at a time, you would get the best value from a small humidor or a Boveda bag.

However, if, like Paul, you have a collection of 1200 cigars, there are specific options best suited to that amount. Cigar coolers/fridges or wineadors serve as temperature-controlled storage. Cabinets can also have great value for money.

Also, tupperdors and coolidors are low-cost, very sturdy and, if prepared correctly, totally airtight.

While there are some good large wooden humidors for the money, they’re higher-maintenance than other solutions. Certain products make them easier to handle, however, like Boveda salt-based humidification and calibratable smart hygrometers.

Of course, if you personally like the look and feel of a wood humidor, they’ll still bring you good value for money. In particular, the Quality Importers Old Glory & Old World are favorites of ours.

    IF utilizing a wine cooler/fridge as humidor, what would be the ideal temperature for cigars? could you store fine cigars at some temp as red wine, say 57 F or so, provided ofcourse that the humidity is adequate

    I bought the NewAir 300-H and Im having a problem with the temp, i have it set to 74 and when im waking up the temp on the outisde still reads 74 but my hygros are readying 64 and 76% humidity, its suppose to heat but i dont know what the issue is, currently waiting to get a return label and return it for a new one, but kinda eh about it since its over$500 and im already having issues , i only bought the thing for its heating and cooling

    I seen that many people season their new humidors with 80%-84% RH Boveda packs. My question is … Do you just throw the Seasoning Boveda Packs in or do you wipe down the entire interior with distilled water and then add the Boveda packs ? Thank You !

    No need to dress like a couple of paid-up UKIP members to seem credible. Nice review, but just relax.
