Cabinet Humidors 101

Classic cabinet humidors are typically built using Spanish cedar, which has excellent weathering characteristics, high humidity absorption capacity, offer protection from tobacco worms and beetles, and have a positive effect on the flavor of the cigars.  Spanish cedar is not a cedar at all, but a hardwood.  Because of this, it is durable and mold resistant with its porous nature and dense grain structure.  It is a premium material for manufacturing humidors, and thus, the most desired type of humidor on the market. Spanish cedar humidors are extremely popular for customers looking to obtain a vintage look and feel for their cigar storage unit. 

Humidors provide ideal storage for tobacco stores, cigar shops or for serious cigar aficionados. Cabinet humidors function as furniture specifically designed to hold and showcase your collection of cigars (and/or cigarettes and pipe tobacco), as well as to keep them fresh, in specially-regulated environmental conditions. Today's humidor cabinets come in a variety of sizes, ranging from small to large enough for commercial use.  They also come in an assortment of designs and materials, ranging from sleek, modern metal and acrylic designs, to classic styles made from Spanish cedar.  

The largest of these cabinets can generally hold between 1000-5000 cigars and are outfitted with an array of cigar shelves and drawers, for additional storage. Large humidors are perfect for installation in commercial storefronts, cigar lounges, or for the avid collector.  

Today, there is a broad selection of cabinet humidors available which are aesthetically pleasing, designed to match a variety of interior styles (modern, antique, etc.), and have state-of-the-art technology and features to regulate the internal climate and keep your tobacco products fresh and flavorful.
