A BRIGHTER LIGHTER

Are you carrying a torch?  Well, here’s one worth carrying when you need to be quick with a joke and to light up a smoke.  These gold colored lighters don’t use gas, they use electricity.

How enlightening is that?  They’re rechargeable, and the battery can last for up to 300 lights.  Then just plug it into a usb port, and within 2 hours, you are good to come on baby light that fire again and again.

Much better than a Bic when a lady asks for a light.  Plus, you get two of them for a low price.

A smart look and a smart purchase for the VIP bachelor.

A CASE FOR A CIGARETTE CASE

The cigarette smoking bachelor can look more VIP with a cigarette case.  They have been around for a couple of centuries, and add a little panache to your favorite ash.

They can also protect your cigarettes from being crushed better than the packaging in which they originally came. (See, I didn’t end the sentence with a preposition.  There are benefits to an education).

Don’t smoke?  Well, you can repurpose the cigarette case to hold business cards, and pass them out with a flair to be remembered.

Myself, I prefer the Victorian designed cases.

Here is a good example:

HOYO BOYO!!!

If you want an excellently constructed, flavorful and medium strength cigar, from one of the most respected cigar manufacturers in the world, you can do no better than the Hoyo de Tradicion from Hoyo de Monterrey.

Burns great, provides an array of flavors which evolve throughout the burn, and you don’t get the spins from nicotine content.

The wrapper, Honduran Rosado, comes from the Jamastran valley, the filler is Nicaraguan, Honduran and Dominican long leaves. Binder is  Connecticut habano.

Forget all the bullshit about caramel this, buttery that, nuts, cocoa and all the other crap that cigar reviewers like to pad their postings with.  This is a damn good cigar, and you should smoke it. Get it here Famous Smoke Shop Cigars on Sale

The Count of Montecristo

For those who like full flavored cigars but not the nicotine kick in the ass that sometimes accompanies smoking one, submitted for your approval is the Montecristo Platinum.

It has the earth and leather flavors you might expect, but never overpowering.  Its flavor nuances develop throughout the cigar, and with a strong ash, it has no problem staying lit.

It is a bit pricey, so depending on the depth of your pockets, you might want to make this a special occasion smoke.

 

Up In Smoke

One of the traditional pleasures of both the VIP and the bachelor is the indulgence in fine tobaccos, whether in cigars or pipes.  But, governments being what they are, voracious consumers of consumer taxes and legislators of morality for the majority, seek to make such individual pleasures both a source of bureaucratic revenue and personal remorse for those who indulge.

Depending upon where you live, your purchase of fine pipe tobaccos and/or cigars can come at an outrageous price with the addition of tobacco taxes and restrictions on even outdoor smoking.

While there isn’t much you can do to fight legislation governing where you can smoke, you can at least indulge at reasonable prices by purchasing your tobacco of choice from reputable dealers on the internet.
