Expensive humidor vs a cheap one? What's the diffrence? Just for the brand?

post #8642 of 9983
Not necessarily just the brand. Materials are part of it, but the most important thing about a humidor is the seal. If it seals well, it will do the job. After that point it's aesthetics, for the most part.

Smoking a My Father Le Bijou at the moment. These have been my go to cigars for about 6 months now. Consistent quality, robust flavor. All in all, a very well rounded cigar.

Aha, understand. I like cigars a lot and now it's time to buy a humidor once for all so I can store them :)

Michael Dixon does handmades, located out of PA or Delaware IIRC, very good aesthetically, solidly built, and for the quality, really a bit of the bargain. Don't remember his website but I'm sure you'll be able to find it.

Just sold one MD on ebay for $500.  New, they are 1K.  Look for a gently used Elie Bleu.  The best, will last a lifetime.

BTW, Michael is doing a lot of work with musical instruments these days.

Really? I sell them retail in my store from 425 up to about 850 depending on size.. Either brand is good, I just prefer md because he's local

Mine was the largest size with some exotic wood.  Very nice, except I like the seal on Elie Bleu much better.  Much more expensive, at retail at least.  I wanted to visit their manufacture in Paris, but they were remodeling and it was not possible.  Their craftsmanship is the best in the world.

yeah, mike mills the seals at 1/64" gap to increase airflow (decreases the chance of mold) but I have to admit it makes them dry out quicker.

If someone here has one for sale. Feel free to pm me.

We just sell them where I work, sorry. I don't own one, not that kind of baller.

 

Illusione #2 with a buddy on his porch. Forgot how good these are.
