Screwpop Cigar Ashtray

Screwpop Cigar Ashtray

When it comes to cigar smoking, enthusiasts have a wide range of gadgets and accessories to choose from. None of them are really necessary to enjoy a cigar, however, they add a bit of convenience or cool factor to our hobby. We’ve got specialty cutters, fancy lighters, leather travel humidors, and aluminum cigar holders, among other things.

Among those accessories, there is one that is often overlooked – the Cigar Ashtray. These handy little objects are made in all shapes, …

Adorini Matera Deluxe Humidor

Adorini Matera Deluxe Humidor

This week I’m going to talk about something we don’t often talk about here on Stogie Review: humidors. Specifically the Adorini Matera Deluxe humidor which was provided for me to use and review, but first a little about humidors in general.

Over the years my thoughts on humidors has evolved, much like my taste in cigars. The first humidor I ever bought was a Diamond Crown called The Wellington. I loved the way the cedar smelled when I opened the …

Parfum Berger Anti Tobacco Car Diffuser – CONTEST

Parfum Berger Anti Tobacco Car Diffuser – CONTEST

One of the problems we as cigar smokers constantly face, if we smoke in our vehicles, is the issue of the smell of stale cigar smoke stuck in our vehicles. Well, the people at Lampe Berger, which Parfum Berger is a part of, in Paris, France, have given us a solution. Their new car diffusers come in 4 different scents, but the one we are concerned about is the Anti Tobacco version. This diffuser is a sweet, citrus, woody scent …

Product Review: Cigar Oasis Excel with Smart Humidor

Product Review: Cigar Oasis Excel with Smart Humidor

I have a little something different for you this week- a long overdue review of the Cigar Oasis Excel. If you are not familiar with the product, it’s an electronic humidification device that releases moisture into the air when the humidity dips below a percentage that you specify. Pretty straightforward, right?

The device Cigar Oasis sent me to evaluate is the Excel unit, which is designed to handle up to 300-count humidors (or 4 cubic feet). It’s larger than some …

IPCPR 2015: Cigar Oasis

IPCPR 2015: Cigar Oasis

One of the things I love about Chaim Kohn of Cigar Oasis is every time I talk to him he’s telling me about an improvement he’s made to one of his products. And I don’t just mean at the trade show. But IPCPR 2015 is the place where we got to see those improvements in person. In this video Chaim briefly takes us through the current line of humidification units and hygrometers before getting in to the relauch of their …

Colibri Astoria Triple Jet Lighter

Colibri Astoria Triple Jet Lighter

When it comes to cigar accessories there is one that you simply can not do without. If you’re in a bind and find yourself without a cutter, a pocket knife, fingernails, or even teeth can open up the cigar. They may not do the prettiest job but the job gets done.

You really can’t say the same when it comes to lighting your cigar. Unless of course you’re Les Stroud or Cody Lundin and can whip up a fire with …

Refinishing a Stinky Cigar Ashtray

Refinishing a Stinky Cigar Ashtray

If you’re like me, you have several Stinky Cigar ashtrays around your house.  I love them.  They are deep, can hold a lot of cigar butts and ash, and are well built.  I bought one of the new more decorative versions last year that came out recently.  I choose the antique hammered copper because, well, it looked really cool.  After several months of using it, the inside started to rust really badly.  It formed some thick rusty crust all around …

Perfecto Cigar Holder

Perfecto Cigar Holder

It’s been a little while since we posted an cigar accessory, and since I’m having some allergy-related issues this week, it seems like the time is right. Today I take a look at the Perfecto Cigar Holder. It’s a gadget that’s billed to be the ultimate cigar holding solution for the outdoors in a wide range of environments, from the grill to the golf cart. Let’s check it out.

The Good Points
Simply stated, the job of the Perfecto Cigar …

Western Humidor Caliber 4R Hygrometer

Western Humidor Caliber 4R Hygrometer

This week, I’m taking a look at a humidor staple that isn’t made of tobacco: The Western Humidor Caliber 4R hygrometer. Ordinarily, we don’t talk about hygrometers very much, because, let’s face it, they’re necessary but boring. Or at least that was my opinion until I spotted the Caliber 4R in the Cigar Oasis booth at IPCPR 2012. It’s essentially a digital hygrometer that looks a great deal like the traditional round analog, along with a few colorful updates. …

Vertigo Intimidator Lighter

Vertigo Intimidator Lighter

A few weeks back I received a surprise package from Steven over at Lighters Direct. The package contained four Vertigo lighters for me to try out.

Prior to receiving the package I hadn’t had any experience with the Vertigo line. Since then I’ve learned that it is a budget line, of sorts, produced by Lotus. Lighters are said to run $30 and under. The Vertigo Intimidator Lighter runs $27.95 from Lighters Direct.

When I first started playing around …
