Cigargle was started by Liam King and his two partners, Scott Carr and William King. The group of friends shared a love for cigars, but not so much the cigar-mouth aka bad breath and lingering taste the next day, that came with it. Their wives were also not fans of said cigar breath. As a group, they tried many remedies prescribed by others, mints, mouthwashes, gums, etc. But nothing worked to their satisfaction, so what did they do? Start their own company to solve the problem of course. Cigargle was born.
If you or someone you know smokes cigars indoors, chances are, you are familiar with the Rabbit Air brand. While not the only game in town, they have built a reputation as the go-to solution for indoor smoking air purification in the cigar smoking world. One of my first purchases after obtaining my own indoor smoking area was a Rabbit Air Minus A2. I used that machine for a nearly 8 years before replacing it for this review, and over the years, it did it's job well. For years, that machine was the gold standard, and today, we will be looking at that machine's successor, the Rabbit Air A3.
This case won't be replacing my Cigar Locker for the bulk of my herfs, but I will absolutely use it when the occasion is right like when I plan on only smoking one or two cigars, or an occasion when I won't be handing many out. The next time you find me in a luxurious steakhouse or upscale cigar bar, you will absolutely find the Peter James Cigar Aficionado Case next to me.
Overall, this is a great piece of traditional, yet modern, cigar clothing. I would not hesitate in recommending this for your formal or casual cigar event if you want to stand out a bit from the crowd. The price is right, and the quality is high, so do yourself a favor and check out the Y.A. Bera website.
This was the only cutter I took with me on a grueling 17 day trip from the Dominican Republic to Nicaragua. By the end of the trip every person was asking to use it for every cigar we smoked. They loved the cut, the feel, and the look. I love it too. I didn't think it would be possible, but it has replaced my original XV as my everyday cutter. It is a little thicker in a pocket but the trade-offs are worth it. I would recommend this to anyone thinking about spending some money on a cutter.

The Quality Importers HygroSet II Digital Hygrometer is a mainstay in many humidors around the world. This prolific hygrometer has been around forever and hasn't really changed over the years. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but does it prove its value in reliability? We'll dig deeper and find out.
Xikar released the HP3 Triple Flame Lighter in 2018 as a followup to 2017's HP4 quad flame lighter we reviewed and loved here. The lighter uses an in-line configuration of triple flames with the outside jets angled 8 degrees toward the center so they converge into one big flame. The HP3 comes in 4 finishes: Burnt Yellow, Daytona Red, Matte Black and G2. My sample is the Daytona red. The HP3 also features a large adjustment wheel, pull-down ignition, and EZ-View Fuel Window. MSRP is $99.99.
Overall this is a great lighter for my needs. I like a larger flame and don't mind the bulk, but that isn't for everyone. I have to give Xikar credit for making a quad-flame lighter that isn't a tabletop. I will definitely keep bringing this with me on short trips when I don't need to keep it in the pocket for a long time. You can use it indoors or out on any cigar, and that's great.
That brings us to one of the best features. The price. The MSRP of the Linea is only $29.99. And don't go thinking that this "budget" lighter isn't still a performer. Xikar still backs the Linea with a lifetime warranty, just like the other Xikar lighters that cost two or three times as much. Functionality, efficiency, and reliability all in such a meager price point is not easy to do, but Xikar did it with the Linea. The Linea is available in Yellow (pictured), Red, Blue, and Black. It is available where Xikar products are sold, and at Xikar.com
