Default Re: Prestige Import Group "The Milano" Humidor

Many of the humidors sold by the major retailers are made in China and imported by Quality Importers. They are OK, and as Tom said above, the less glass the better. I have one of these imports (Ravello 300 ct) and it has served me well for many years.

You should expect that the seal on these humidors will not be perfect, but it will be good enough, especially if you are trying to avoid spending a lot of money.

I did have a humidor very similar to the Milano you are looking at, and while it looks nice, it actually does not hold very many cigars — it’s meant for a retail display.

If you have leaks, you can use some silicone aquarium sealant to seal the joints and a little painters tape will often improve the seal on the lid. The end result is a humidor that works well and did not cost a body-part.

Another thing, humidors need to be seasoned more than once. Twice a year works well. This will ensure that the wood stays moist and the joints stay tight.

Most of these are also available on Amazon for a decent price. Good luck and Welcome Home!
