The creation of a Daniel Marshall Humidor requires nearly four months. From the time that Mr. Marshall personally selects the rarest, most exotic and brilliantly patterned woods to final lacquering and polishing, the humidor has passed 175 individual and delicate procedures. The interior of the Daniel Marshall Cigar Humidor is done in untreated Spanish cedar. The unique construction of the Daniel Marshall Humidor works in concert with the natural cedar to enable fine cigars to become 'alive'. Inside the humidor, the cigars will take on character, flavors will become more enhanced and mellow with age. This special environment allows the rich oils in the cedar to mature and delicately coat the wrapper of the cigar with the famous silken texture that is so desired. Exceptional humidification is achieved by a DM self-regulating device that is time proven and guaranteed to automatically regulate the atmosphere in the humidor at approximately 70%. Over time, this system does not need replacement and requires addition of distilled water on a four to six week basis.
