This is Quarter-sawn Fumed White Oak in our "Maduro" Collection; also called “tiger oak” this wood's tannins are deeply fumed to dark brown in an organic-reactive process to make the rays in the grain stand out. When dark is your go-to...
A Benchmark portable humidor is a safe haven for your cigars, surrounded by their birth mate, wood. Beautiful wood. Each is ergonomically designed with curated veneers fused over a cross-banded birch body. The exterior receives a natural hand-rubbed finish that is food-grade, smooth as silk, water resistant and completely non-toxic. Our fine-figured veneers are twice the thickness of the industry standard, and special care is taken so the grains beautifully align. That process is called "book-matching" where grains mirror each other left to right, from their center line.
Inside the Benchmark, your cigars rest next to 100% Spanish cedar on all contact surfaces, including the lid. It snaps closed with satisfying assurance, tight enough to keep your fine cigars at the proper relative humidity (RH). Your Benchmark’s 6 1/4” deep interior will hold four 54 ring gauge or three 60 ring gauge cigars.
We have a special relationship with Boveda, whose RH-controlling products were intended for use in our humidor design — each ships ready to use; we include two (8g) 75% Boveda packs for seasoning, and two (8g) 72% packs for maintaining your RH. Just remove a pack from its sealed plastic bag, then slide into your humidor and add your cigars.
Entirely USA-crafted. Your benchmark.
