Campanas (3/5)

  1. I'd do a quick search of the forum here, there are reviews and info on the current US based cabinet makers from people who have ordered from them.
  2. Your humidity will stratify in any cabinet. I would expect your RH to be highest on top, but this might be a function of how long your cigars/boxes have been in and resting. You can get a fan and attempt to equalize the RH across your shelves. Back when I had wineadors I used a fan and it did bring the spread closer together, but didn't eliminate it completely. I prefer my cubans closers to the 62% mark, so in your case i'd probably put my cubans low and my NCs high. Personally, I'd just find a range that you're comfortable with and forget about it.
  3. That price hike is no joke. FWIW — I have not noticed any I’ll effects to my cigars from increased temps in the summer time. I have the Vigilant Armoire 2000. I just pull the humidification unit out in the summer and use large Boveda packs to keep the humidity down. (No AC in the home) Northwestern Michigan
  4. Looking forward to hearing about your experience. I’ve got a family member seriously considering one of these on a new home build.
  5. I’m late to the party here. It looks like you are already in process. I was going to suggest you could look at in-wall humidor options.
  6. Hey Jed, As a former Minnesotan who kept his cabinet in the basement, I can say I did not need a cooler unit. Ive got more info in my vigilant review.
  7. Thanks! It’s actually the Chestnut stain with lacquer, but there are certainly some cherry tones to it.
  8. Images fixed here. Previous links had broken. I also added an update after 1 year with the unit.
  9. Warped doesn’t have any additives in any of their cigars as far as I’m aware. If you are a CC smoker there is a good chance you would enjoy his cigars. I’ve smoked many and have a box of Maestro Del Tiempo sitting in my cabinet right now.
  10. I did not get temp control. The range of temps I have just didn’t necessitate it. I did upgrade to the Guardian Digital system and I’ve been impressed. Readings were accurate and it was wired nicely both for electrical connection and a central placement on the back wall for the humidity probe.
  11. Hi Nick, What are you using to humidify your Newair? Since the humidity drops when you open the door it must be something within the cabinet that is raising the RH. This could be whatever media you are using for humidity or your cigars themselves. When I first wanted to bring my cigar humidity down to 62% it took a while because my cigars were bringing up the RH every time I opened the cabinet. Time will fix this assuming the RH outside your cabinet is lower and your media itself isn't adding additional moisture to the equation. Cheers
  12. My Vigilant came quickly and the quality is as good as it gets, but yeah you will pay for it.
  13. I’ve been able to source two boxes. 1 box left. Excellent cigar but I’m having a hard time breaking into the second one with the supply shortage.
  14. 50s I would want to see: Fundadores Ramon Allones Superiores H Upmann Connie 1
