Happy Tuesday, folks!
As I’m gearing up to head back home for a while, I’m getting more and more excited about not living my cigar lifestyle out of travel humidors and pelican cases. There’s just something liberating about not being tied to a limited amount of decisions once it’s cutting time.
Which brings me to our question of the week:
What type of humidor do you prefer? Plastic, wood, electric, large, small, walk-in?
Myself, I’m more of a plastic man these days. The functionality of plastic meets my lifestyle more than wood, but I still miss the smell of opening a wooden cabinet. Plastic is just so much easier to safeguard and travel with plastic no matter where I’m headed, without the headaches of seasoning, warping, seal testing, and all that jazz.
There’s only one problem that I’ve discovered with plastic so far: no one has ever been bold enough to create a tower outside of wooden materials except for the wineadors.
Why is that a problem? Because tupperdors and coolidors require us to stack boxes or cedar trays in a way that you have to remove a certain number of cigars in order to see the rest. This is great if you want to forget about something, but soul crushing month after month and year after year.
The greatest thing about a cabinet for me isn’t the space, but rather the vertical look angle that doesn’t require an immense amount of shuffling to smoke what you want. If someone created a tower out of plastic or acrylic, I’d be in there like swimwear! Similarly, I’m more of a vertical freezer kind of guy instead of a chest freezer. Pretty sure there’s a lot of crossover in my reasoning there as well.
If there’s a downside to plastic outside of the available shapes and sizes, I haven’t found it yet.
