Colibri announced a new limited edition series of the Colibri Quasar humidor. Designed in New York City by Colibri and hand-crafted in California by Daniel Marshall, the Quasar model made its debut at last year’s International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) show and quickly sold out.
At this month’s IPCPR show, Colibri introduces three new Quasar humidors. The first is a new large 16” wide model with a 150-175 cigar capacity. It will come in the same matte black finish of the original and only 200 units will be produced. Each one is serialized on the Colibri plaque located on the inner side of humidor’s lid.
“We constructed the exterior from Honduran mahogany and lined the interior with untreated Spanish cedar,” says Daniel Marshall while speaking of the Quasar, “which works in concert with our unique construction to enable fine cigars to become ‘alive’. To create the multi-dimensional contours of the exterior, we had to manufacture a custom carbide cutter to produce the four-sided pyramid shapes. We then finished the exterior with a matte black lacquer. Careful and thoughtful attention goes into each step in our process. From start to finish, each humidor we construct will have passed 175 individual and delicate procedures.”
The Quasar is made of Honduran mahogany and the interior is lined with untreated Spanish cedar. Exceptional humidification is regulated by the Daniel Marshall self-regulating humidification system. Each Quasar includes two movable dividers. All three Quasar humidors will ship in this summer.
