Colibri has announced that the Quasar humidor, a collaboration with Daniel Marshall, will return for 2015, this time in three different versions. The New York-based accessory company and the California-based humidor maker collaborated for the first Quasar last year, a modern-looking hobnail pattern based on the Colibri Molectric lighter from the 1960s. Now, the Quasar is back, but in different form.

A larger Quasar is being made in matte black. The 16-inch unit has estimated capacity of 150-175 cigars. It will be limited to 200 units with an MSRP of $1,995.

Like the original release it features Daniel Marshall’s self-regulating humidity system and two dividers.

In addition, two 12-inch models will be offered this year: metallic black and matte red. Both are limited to 200 units of each color with an MSRP of $1,500.

“We constructed the exterior from Honduran mahogany and lined the interior with untreated Spanish cedar, which works in concert with our unique construction to enable fine cigars to become ‘alive.’” said Daniel Marshall in a press release. “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.”

Colibri says the new humidors will begin shipping in July. They will be on hand for retailers to view at the IPCPR Trade Show & Convention which begins July 17 in New Orleans, La.
