Cigar Humidors, the simplest fact you should know that is any kind of box or room with constant humidity used to store cigars or pipe tobacco. Any good box meet those requirment is good Humidors, there is no such real humidors or fake humidors. The only thing you should concern is make sure the humidor is complete seal once it closed to keep the humidity.
There are sellers states that how good their cigar humidors and use 100% Spanish cedar wood. In fact, Spanish cedar does not originate from Spain as one might assume but is generally imported from Brazil and other countries of South and Central America. There is no such REAL SPANISH CEDAR in the world. Is that humidor must have a Spanish cedar lining or it is somehow counterfeit? Face it; a cigar humidor is a piece of furniture that is used to store cigars. It is like any other piece of wooden furniture in your home. If the box has a reasonable seal, it will perform the task of cigar humidification!
We have people keep asking us is that $300.00 humidor is more effective than that $20.00 humidor? It just is not so! Think about that, till today, most wooden box are still hand made products, the most cost for humidors are coming from labor cost to made the humdiors. For good humdior, each case is handcrafted from hardwood veneer coated with 8 layers of lacquer. Then each layer of lacquer is baked for 3 days before being sanded and polished by hand. So if same material been used, the only factor that affect the price is where it made from and where are you buying it from. For example, a 100% cutton T-Shirt, you could spent $200 or more for a famous name brand T-Shirt in luxury department store, or get it less than $10 from outlet store. They just same item made by same materials. Your budget and aesthetic needs should determine your choice. The cigars don't care either way.
So don't fool by some seller about their "Real Spanish Cedar Cigar Humidors"
