We spent a lot of time trying different products for this humidor review. Basically, a humidor is a case for gourmet cigars. Usually, it comes in a box shape and the gourmet cigars are kept inside it to preserve their quality. The best humidor cigar keeps the top quality of all cigars stored in it. Typically, a great humidity-controlled box has a humidifier and hygrometer to prevent molds from growing on the cigars to keep the cigars from drying.

Our search for the best cigar humidor is composed of long hours of research and testing different humidor cigar boxes to spot the best one. So, if you are someone who is an avid fan of cigars or starting out to like high-end stogies, read on to find out what is the best cigar humidity-controlled boxes. We tested several brands and here are what we found out.

When it comes to the best cigar humidors, functionality and size matters. The GERMANUS Cigar Humidor for approx. 50 Cigars are one of the high capacity humidors that we have tested. This tabletop version offered us room to up to 50 gourmet cigars. Although it offered a huge cabin for our cigars, it was still relatively light and easy to carry. It has a simple appeal that is perfect for a newbie stogie aficionado who does not want to have a bold humidor that seeks attention in their room. The humidity-controlled box is subtle and it was easy for us to look for a space to put it on our home.

When we held the GERMANUS, we instantly felt that it was built using high-quality materials. It has simple look that contributed greatly to its classy appeal. Essentially, the GERMANUS Cigar Humidor for approx. 50 Cigars just look like a wooden box with a smooth finish. However, it served as a great home for all our gourmet stogies. No wonder thehumidity-controlled box are so much appealing to most men because of its modest appearance.

The cigar storage box is made from the finest Spanish cedar wood because our expensive cigars only deserve the best cigar humidor. Inside the box, it has a hygrometer and humidifier that preserves the quality of our expensive gourmet cigars. We kept our cigars in it for a few days to a few weeks and the flavors were truly kept intact. The hygrometer and humidifier made sure that the environment where we kept our cigars was kept ideal so that no molds would grow on them. The ideal humidity is achieved and kept inside the humidor. Moreover, our cigars did not dry out even when we kept them inside the  for weeks.

A great thing about this version is that comes with an instruction manual that is easy to understand. Apparently, a lot of new cigar aficionados learned how to care for their cigars properly with the help of this instruction manual. The detailed instruction manual has photos and videos that serve as a guide for newbies and expert cigar users.

After a few weeks of trying the GERMANUS Cigar box, we really appreciated how useful this humidor was. Before, we just kept our cigars in a box or anywhere we had space for them, but now, we will never go back to that again.

Scorch Torch 25-50 Cigar Humidor Humidifier w/ Hygrometer

Scorch Torch 25-50 Cigar Humidor Humidifier w: Hygrometer Best Cigar Humidors 2018

The Scorch Torch 25-50 Cigar Humidor Humidifier w/ Hygrometer is a classy box container for all our gourmet cigars. We know that our expensive stogies deserve nothing but the best and if we want them to last for a long time, we have to keep them safe in a humidor that guarantees a controlled environment. The Scorch Torch looks good inside and outside. It has a lavish scorched torch Fitzgerald finish that makes it an amazing addition to our room. Its luxurious appeal truly exudes our style.

When it came to appearance, we really liked that the Scorch Torch 25-50 Cigar Humidor Humidifier w/ Hygrometer has a glass top cover. This way, we can conveniently see the cigars inside without having to open the humidor. Frequently opening the humidor can affect the humidity of the box’s interior, which can quickly spoil the cigars. Since we did not have to open it often, the humidity is kept consistent. Moreover, with the glass top cover, we felt like we were showcasing our priced cigars to our friends. This design truly worked for us.

The Scorch Torch  is not only a good-looking cigar box. When we tested it out, it served us really well. When we closed the humidor, it tightly sealed the inside of the container, which made sure that the moisture control and distribution are optimal. Therefore, our gourmet cigars tasted the best even if we kept them inside the Scorch Torch for weeks.

It also helped that the humidity-controlled box is crafted from the finest wood material. This did not in any way affect the taste of the cigars we stored in it. We have tried humidors in the past that altered the taste of the cigars due to the residue of the material used for them. That is why we often stick to wooden humidors from now on.

Although the Scorch Torch is not the biggest storage for cigars we have seen, we feel that this capacity is still enough for a few weeks worth of stogies. We also saw its capacity to its advantage because, in a way, we felt that it was semi-portable. It was easy to carry even when it is filled with our gourmet cigars. So, when we wanted to bring it to a party or wherever, we just picked it up and brought it out.

It is priced just right such that even newbies can buy it without breaking the bank. Still, it exudes luxury, which is why experienced cigar aficionados buy it. We really liked it because it took care of our expensive cigars really well and it preserved their freshness for the time that we were going to smoke them.
