    Hay !
    I am glad that I joined your cigar fan site. I smoke cigars since I was 18 and from then I have been buying cigars almost anywhere. Most of my cigars come from cigar shop, but they are not aged and really expensive.
    So I have decided to buy my own humidor. Because I am a student (low budget) I cant buy an expensive humidor. My eye has fallen on a Medici humidor, 500 cigar store case.
    I would really like to hear your opinion or maybe experience with this bad boy. I f you have any other suggestions, I will be glad !
    Cheers !

  2. Good morning Stas. Head on over to the introduction area and post a greeting. It's an expectation around here.

    Is that your video or website in the link? If so, it looks like you don't need our opinions on the humidor.

    As for the humidor, it sounds like it has some good qualities. I could see multiple uses for it in my current situation. I would, however, recommend getting a good cooler. The same box storage plus a tray for singles works great, hold humidity better than almost any thing, and they are less expensive. My $.02

    Welcome to CP.

    I agree with the above. I was of the thought that I needed a fancy humidor to show off my small stash and have come to the realization that its a better value to spend less on storage and more on cigars. This community is to blame :)

    There is a thread stickied that discusses coolidors which provides some great info. Save mom and dad's snack money and to spend on some quality smokes or even a newbie sampler trade instead of an expensive humidor. It may not be the nicest looking storage but it will keep your cigars in good condition with little attention and give you more money to spend on finding your favorite cigar(s)

    Welcome and good luck.

    In terms of solid storage for the least $$ / sq. foot, you cannot beat a cooler. Period. They ain't pretty, but they work flawlessly for storage, short or long term.

    Less $$ on storage = more $$ for your favorite cigars. If you smoke regularly, look into buying a smaller desktop so you don't have to go digging through a cooler or larger storage set up. The cooler would be great for aging.

    Hey you cigar - guys !
    I v red your comment with pleasure, but there is one thought in my mind. The coolers.... I get the idea but, as I looked them up on the web, there are too quite expensive !
    200 euros for a 12 bottle cooler ? A lot ... but a good idea I say.
    Give me some links to the cheap coolers :)
    Thanks !

    They mean like an ice chest cooler humidor. But you can buy an electric one if you want.

    Stas here is a link to the most popular cooler most use for this purpose.
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Coleman-Marine-150-Quart-Cooler/9222616

    Also checkout Forest (golfnut here on CP) he makes cedar shelves drawers and dividers that fit right in the slots of this cooler!
