I am new to cigars and previously settled on a 70qt coolidor with kitty litter to store my CCs (500+, I know I got the CC FOH bug). It was the cheapest and best option for me, however, I thought to myself why not get a humidor and put it on display! Such a waste to hide them in a coolidor. Especially since I have the space for it.
I am now considering 3 options with a budget of no more than $1,000 and would like your input:
1. Newair CC-300H (300-400 capacity) with kitty litter for humidity control and a coolidor for overflow storage. I would put this on top of a sideboard/dining room server table. Not very elegant, but functional for temp and circulation.
2. Small cabinet (1000 cigar capacity), a beautiful piece of furniture. I would also put this on top of sideboard furniture (245 pounds not sure if that’s the brightest idea) so I don’t have to bend down or crouch to access it. I would put an oasis and kitty litter, but no temp control may be a deal breaker. Indoor temp ranges from 58 -90 degrees Fahrenheit in NorCal. https://yourelegantbar.com/products/the-spartacus-cabinet-humidor-1000-cigars
3. Tower cabinet (3000 capacity). Simple design and ai would have a tower for cigar display! I don’t think I will have more than 1,000 at any given time, but who knows! https://yourelegantbar.com/collections/cigar-humidor-cabinets/products/power-of-tower-humidor-shelves-cherry-3000-cigars
What option would you choose and why? Thanks!
