Considering an End Table Humidor
 
I'm considering buying an end table-style humidor. I know about Aristocrat, and that they are well regarded. However I've read of people being less than pleased with the delivery times and communication. I'm wondering who else out there may be making good quality table humidity? Any and all feedback welcome. :tu

fwiw, I had a great experience with communications and delivery time on my Aristocrat.

Thanks Peter. I am certainly not ruling out Aristocrat. I may plop down my money there and hope for the best. I know the product quality is excellent. I am simply wanting to see what other options I should research before spending $1000+.

Avallo is another reputable vendor of a quality product.

Warren, I've had my Aristocrat for about 2 years now and I have a stellar experience with Bob, he was more than willing to work with me on all the little details and will work with you on features and prices, really just a great experience. It was a bit to wait but I think he was within about 10 days of the date he originally gave me so that's not bad at all. I only talked to him 3 times on the phone, 2 to order and one for an update and I never had an issue. That being said I'm sure there are people that call him twice a week about a build and if he doesn't answer the phone or get back to them in 4 hours they get upset and complain, I heard a couple stories as well but can tell you it was a great experience and I freaking love my Aristocrat!

My experience as well, 10 years and still perfect.

I have had the Lauderdale from cheap humidors for nearly 3 years and my only complaint is it doesnt come with an expansion button. So when I "accidentally" buy too much it all still fits. The drawer always has about 50 sticks and the base has between 10 and 12 boxes plus maybe 50 sticks in finger bags. I dont think it can hold 500 unless you take them all out of the boxes and just stack them like cord wood. However I frequently approach the 350 to 400 mark and love it.

Just out of curiosity, how much do they cost? I looked at their site and didn't see any prices.

If you have to ask...

The only prices I have found online are for their winders, which run between 6 and 19K, smaller ones for single watches can be found used for a few hundred.

I watched all the videos, the watch safes are pretty cool as well.

I have two Aristocrats. Both are amazing pieces of art, functional decor, and humidors. Call Bob, probably late morning Dallas time and have a chat. He still remembers the desktop that he built years back and was given to me by botls here.

My pieces are heirlooms but if you do not require that then pick a price point and research that space. Also, search through the accessories thread.

I was at a Buben & Zorweg store at the mall and they had watch & humidor combo's from 75-200K.

I can't imagine any humidor only from them under 10K. I could be wrong...

I think I'll stick with my three cheap desktops for now.

So 200K for a humidor, or buy a humdor for 3K and have 197K left for cigars and hookers? I know my choice. ;)

I have both an end table Avallo & Aristocrat.

Actually prefer the Avallo due to the placement of the humidity control/display which is side mounted vs. the Aritocrat which is mounted beneath the top of the humidor and creates issues when trying to Tetris boxes into the unit.

Quality-wise, both are excellent

Figure 5K for humidor, 20K for cigars, the rest on an Aston or McLaren...

Knew a stripper named Aston years & years ago. Your math is spot on, Moses.
