1st Class Humidors

Sorry, but the remaining stock of Aristocrats and the boxes at Avallo are out of my "pocket money" range.

I found a 2000 count tower at https://www.1stclasshumidors.com/ for $699 with a "name your price" option. I'm thinking of throwing one low and outside ($600) to see how they respond, being ready to go up to $650.

IF

Anyone has any experience with this company. The reviews are all good (but who's to say they don't shit-can bad ones).

Looking for info/feedback. A couple of the coolerdors are lagging and I'm almost out of space anyway.

What say ye? Anyone ever bought or even considered? TIA

I would love to have a high end humidor. I generally believe there are two types of humidors. The really good custom built ones that are generally out of my price range and the normal ones mostly built in China. I have two of those and have never been able to regulate the humidity. Even with a fuck load of beads. Likewise, my coolidors have remained rock solid. I noticed years ago that cigars out of my humidors weren't as good. The cigars in the coolidors were always perfect. I've mostly migrated my cigars to my coolidors.

After Bob announced they were no longer going to build humidors he had probably 7-8 to sell. Looks like he is down to one smaller cabinet left. That is if he has everything updated on the site.

I see. I'm not in the market, just wondering. I've had my Aristocrat for 15 years and it looks and works like new.
