Inside the humidor you will find cedar shelves that hold 50 cigars (Cohiba 50 Annnversarios) which is the largest cigar ever made by the Cuban cigar industry.The humidor holds humidity and temperature controls that can be monitored and controlled through an exclusive smartphone app. Along with the cigars and controls, there are accessories branded with the anniversary logo i.e. a bespoke leather cigar case produced by Peter Charles. The first of these humidors was sold at the auction in Havana, Cuba at the 18th Annual Habanos Festival gala dinner whereby it sold for $352,505 (325,000 Euros).
