I think it was like 70 to 80. Can't remember, I got it almost a year ago.

The Devil does a good job with shipping large humidors. Expensive, but with the price you could pay on your bid it is still usually significantly cheaper. Always remember to open it on the truck because once you sign the delivery papers you have little to no repercussions against CI or C-bid.

Wow...these are beautiful humis.

I've already outgrown one humi, maybe it's a good idea to just bite the bullet and upgrade. I have a wedding to pay for this year, but I'm sure I can come up with a good excuse as to why I have to buy one.

It IS a beautiful humi. I really didn't have high expectations as to looks, etc. when I ordered mine. When I unpacked it, I was very, very pleased with its look AND its functionality. Believe me when I say the depth of it is quite deceiving. It will hold a LOT of cigars. I have 12 boxes in mine right now and it looks quite empty.

Default Re: Montegue Cabinet Humidor = AWESOME

I have been looking to get a cabinet humi for a month or so now. I really like the looks of the montegue. Problem is I want cabinet humi and a scotch cabinet all in one. In my searching I was unable to find internal dimensions of the Montegue; I've found the outside to be 30 inches tall. Now with the drawer and the legs that doesnt leave much room down below. Anyone willing to break out the tape measure and find the internal dimensions of the lower portion of the cabinet. I figure I need at least 12, preferably 14-16 inches of vertical space to hold my botles. With a 30 inch total height that doesnt leave me much room for cigars(the main function and reason for having it). Anyone have suggestions? FWI Im new and just used the search button for "cabinet humidor" and this thread was near the top. Forgive my insolence if an older thread has addressed a similar issue.

Do you have any issues with keeping the temp below 75 with the cab sitting in front of a window?

Lol, not really.
I live in Holland so in mid-summer outside temperatures usually peak at about 80.
And this is the coldest room in the house

But i did put it in the opposite corner, because i needed better access to the build-in closet behind it.

Default Re: Montegue Cabinet Humidor = AWESOME

I have had a Montague for about 3 years now. GREAT humidor. I know keep a Hydra LG on the bottom and use an AUX fan blowing across some beads to help the top.

I ended up removing one of the shelves to make more room. if you stack the boxes just right you can fit QUITE a bit more int eh dead space behind the drawer. I Was able to fit about 6 extra boxes in that space. These humidors really hold soo much more than it seems. Mine is filled to where things fall out when I open it. IT is sad how fast you can outgrow a humi.

Default Re: Montegue Cabinet Humidor = AWESOME

So I've done some research and found that this is what Iím looking for. I have a few questions. Its it over kill to get the SM Hydra with the fan extension, 3 fans and 3lbs heartfelt beads? My thought process is the hydra will saturate the beads whenever they need it, but I want enough beads as if they were the only hydration so the humidor will recover faster and stay stable. Also can I just use the Hydra to season it by itself or should I wipe it down and put water in a bowl like a normal seasoning?

However, I do not know any way AROUND the standard scenario, better known as the slope.
It's just a process like fear, anger, denial, bargaining and acceptance.

I don't remember the exact amount of beads I bought but I know it was about 1/2 lb. more than I needed and they seem to do alright. during the winter when the heats running I have to rehydrate about 2 weeks. I put some weather seal along the door where they meet and that helped. Still happy I settled on this one.

Anybody have any feed back on "The Lauderdale" model. I like the look more than the Montegue. As OLS points out I am well past my slope days and cant afford it anyway. This size will hold exactly what I want and need. The Price is right for my broke arse also.

So will it work to season it only with the Hydra? It is an actve humidification unit if you don't know.

I have a Montegue and use an Oasis with a couple of pounds of HCM beads throughout. I keep mine in my finished basement and find the RH is very stable in the summer, but as the winter temps roll in and the furnace runs more, I have to fill my Oasis every couple of weeks.

I would suggest doing a flashlight test once you have it set up. I found a 1/8 - 1/4 inch seam along the top of the unit which I sealed by jambing weather stripping into the crack. I also weather stripped around the door as light was passing through there as well. I used a weather stripping that compressed more for the doors as I needed to make sure the doors stayed shut.

I think a Hydra and a couple pounds of beads would do the trick. As for seasoning it with just the Hydra, I think you'd be better off leaving some sponges on plates in there as the SM Hydra may need a few fillings to season it properly.
