The battle of the humidors. Everyone has their own preferred method. Which humidor is the best? Which is the best way to season? What is the best way to maintain humidity? The options are endless. Today, I will review the acrylic humidor made by Boveda. Boveda is the leading company when it comes to humidity control.
The Ad Copy:
Spend time (and money) on your cigar hobby, not your humidor. 12 months of maintenance-free, organized storage for up to 20 cigars, preloaded with two (2) Size 60 Boveda.
Only patented Boveda precisely restores and maintains cigars at 69% RH with all natural salt and water solutions. Choose the global leader in 2-way humidity control to protect your cigars
Tough, heavy duty acrylic is more airtight than a glass-top wood humidor, which is prone to humidity fluctuations.
Keep cigars fresher longer, magnetic closure ensures an airtight seal to help Boveda work more efficiently. Perforated shelf allows Boveda’s pure water vapor to circulate around cigars.
Affordable first (or second) humidor, see your cigars, show off your sticks and know when your favorite smokes are running low without lifting the humidor lid to break the seal.
Storage Size: 12-20 cigars depending on size
Humidity System: Perforated shelf that holds 2 Boveda 60 gram packs (preloaded)
Safety Features: Rubber feet to stop humidor from sliding or moving
Dimensions: 8.5 x 2.8 x 5.8 inches
Weight: 1.5 pounds
I have to say the acrylic see through look is appealing. You can see your sticks for inventory purposes or just to show them off.
Look and Feel:
The acrylic has a luxury look to it. Almost like crystal without the price tag. The humidor as a whole feels very sturdy. The durability is at least even if not better than a classic wooden humidor.
While the ad copy says it is an affordable first or second humidor I have found a greater use for this one. Since it is clear I like to display my higher end sticks in it. The current workload that it holds right now is 4 Opus X Lost City, 2 Opus X 20th. year anniversary, and 1 2019 Toast Across America Set (1 Fuente Fuente X Shark and 1 Diamond Crown Julius Caesar Shark)
It should come as no surprise that Boveda has put out a quality product. There name on this humidor made the decision to buy very easy. I am very happy with my purchase. They do make a large size that I am highly considering since this one worked out so well. If you are looking for a second or third humidor or just want to display your higher end cigars I recommend this product.
