If your only experience with Cigars was one of smoking Phillies or Swisher Sweets over cheap beer and Golden Tee in college (what, that was a weekly event for you?), then it’s understandable if you’re hesitant to dive back into the world of cigars.
But that wasn’t really the world of cigars. This latest box of awesome from Bespoke Post on the other hand, sorta opens the door to that world. And for $45, it’s an awfully nice way to stick your foot down that rabbit hole without losing your shirt in the process.
The obvious star of the box is the 4-Pack of cigars from the Dominican maker E.P. Carrillo. Ordered from mild to full-bodied, this is a starter set that you might want to make notes about for future reference. The cigars come sealed in “Boveda humipacks” to ensure freshness (sorry, had to crack it open for the photos) and would make for a nice way to spend an evening with some pals.
The Beastly Ash Tray / Candle Holder.
But the rest of the box holds its own and then some. The reclaimed wood ash-tray/candle holder is the size (and almost weight) of a friggin’ brick. And while looking a little country rustic, the wood is aged enough that it’ll fit in among any decor. It’s something to look at for sure.
One of the better “masculine” smelling candles out there.
The candle smells terrific. Cigar smoke smells great… while you’re smoking, but in the cold light of the day after it’s not quite as fun. Even smoking outside can leave the room closest to the door with a little stink. Light this candle up and fill that space with a sandy, slightly sweet outdoorsy smell. Fresh but warm at the same time.
Final bits of the box are a Glenfiddich branded (sneaky advertising) cigar cutter, plus a 4-pack of slow-burning cedar lighting sticks. The point of those is to avoid poisoning your cigar with the smells of a lighter, and offer more flame time than a match.
This is one of the more impressive boxes Bespoke Post has ever produced. Not everyone smokes cigars, yet it still sold out awfully quick. And now that the box is here in hand, it’s fair to say that those who opted in made a solid choice. For those of us that opted out and wish we didn’t, well… still not going back to those Swisher Sweets.
