We’ve seen growing online interest in Warners’ Stellian’s Liebherr Cigar Humidor in the past month. I figured I’d learn about this product that’s enjoyed such a spike in orders.
Liebherr is a German company known as a high-end refrigeration specialist. Its XS 200 is a quality glass-front humidor that not only delivers the electronic humidor preservation a cigar lover looks for, but its styling looks totally distinctive.
When I think of a cigar humidor, I think of a wooden box-style humidor of my dad’s that used to sit on an end table in our house. (Not the most attractive showpiece.)
The XS200, on the other hand, has Liebherr’s sleek, European styling and a stainless steel — not wood — cabinet. Spanish cedar wood is used for the shelving and is removable if desired or for cleaning. After its recent European launch, the XS 200 won a prestigious red dot award for design.
But prettiness aside, humidity and temperature control are the main reasons for a humidor. Without humidity and temperature control, your cigars could suffer an outbreak of tobacco beetles, whose voracious appetite could ravage your collection.
Liebherr’s MagicEye control system, with three control circuits and four fans, allows individual settings for humidity (between 68%-75%) and temperature (between 61 degrees and 68 degrees).
The integrated water tank holds distilled water regulated by sensors and a visual display, which alerts the owner to refill. Liebherr’s humidor responds to a change in humidity and temperature within minutes, which is important because constancy is crucial in cigar preservation.
Other key features include:
LED lighting — not only does it look better than standard lighting, it emits virtually no heat to compromise your collection. (And the dimmer function helps you choose just the right “mood lighting” for your cigar collection display — whatever mood that may be.)
Activated charcoal filter — ensures fresh, clean air flow
Glass-front door — allows owner to monitor temperature and humidity control display to avoid frequent door-opening that could affect conditions inside the humidor
Water reservoir — insusceptible to mold and rot, easy to clean, and holds 3 months worth of water at a time
Liebherr’s XS-200 measures 24-1/8″ high, 16-3/4″ wide and 18-7/8″ deep.
Warners’ Stellian currently offers the XS 200 for $2,599, which includes free shipping to anywhere we can sell Liebherr (peach-colored states).
