Two days ago, i bit the bullet and ordered my first humidor, the Adorini Torino from – together with the various accessories i ordered, i paid US$109 + US$29 for shipping & handling. Apparently there is a 16% discount when a non-EU citizen purchases from them due to a removal of certain taxes. All in all it looks like a good deal – as long as the humidor arrives in good condition and the import taxes i have to pay isn’t too high.

The following is an email i received confirming my order and its shipping:
