At this year’s IPCPR in New Orleans I ran into Michael of Whiff Out on the show floor and then at one of the cigar after parties. Michael talked about how amazing Whiff Out worked and said I should try it. A few weeks after the show I got in contact with him and he was kind enough to send me some samples to review and try out.
Whiskey Barrel Coffee reached out to us to see if we would assist them in evaluating how their coffee pairs with cigars. I was very intrigued as whiskey and cigars are a fairly common pairing and coffee and cigars are another typical pairing. I was interested to see how this product that combined both of those drink aspects would pair with cigars.
I really really like this case, I use it almost exclusively if I am bringing more than 2 cigars anywhere. I love that you can fit everything you need, and then some, to smoke a cigar in one place and not worry about forgetting something. Coming in at $65, this really is a no-brainer, and should be at the top of many Christmas wish lists this season.
The wow factor in this case comes from the top. It is a metal accent piece with a nice polished finish. The narrow fins with the black contrast insets are meant to mimic the look of the cooling fins on an engine. Just like the cruiser motorcycles that this look is meant to emulate, the contrast of the black leather against the shiny chrome is a classic look. Even with the v-twin styling, this case would also feel at home in the breast pocket of your favorite business suit.
This is a great set both in appearance and performance and would make a great gift or starter set. I highly recommend this product, just most other Xikar products. The set has a retail price of $129 which I think is reasonable for the quality you get and the lifetime guarantee that makes Xikar awesome.
Michael asked us to review this new product and I decided to tackle this one. To sum it up in two words: it works! Honest to God, it really does what it says, I know it sounds too good to be true. Now, it does have it's limitations, it's not a miracle worker, but it's close.
When I first saw the pictures of the Turrim lighter from Xikar, I thought it was nice, and sleek looking, and I liked that they emphasized how much fuel it could hold, but I had NO IDEA until I received this thing in the mail how big it actually is. And that’s not to say that it’s size it a bad thing either,
Others may not find as much value in this as I do, living at high altitude, but even if I didn't I would still get one of these for how wind-proof it is. It would be perfect for those windy BBQ's, sporting events or hikes.
The hot rod inspired Forte is built on a newly designed chassis, delivering consistent performance, time after time. Designed for the on-the-go lifestyle, choose your style.
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.
