IPCPR 2014: Colibri

Null

The accessory maker had cigar smokers’ mouths watering with the pre-show announcement of a humidor that it had worked with Daniel Marshall to create, and when seen it person it only became that much more coveted. Beyond that, the company announced other new products, some new looks for existing products and several options in its Firebird line that are geared towards the cost-conscious cigar smoker.

First up: Quasar. The Colibri-designed, Daniel Marshall-built humidor is a stunner in person, though this isn’t the final version as the company decided to go with a matte black finish as opposed to the high-gloss option that was on display. Between fingerprints, dust and other distractions, the consensus was that a matte finish would work better. Either way, it’s a stunner. Only 100 units are being produced with at least 50 set for the U.S. market though that number could be increased depending on demand, but as of now there won’t be more total units created. It’s listed as having a capacity of 125 cigars, but as we all know that will vary based on what sizes of cigars you put in it. MSRP is $1,250 and the first ones should begin heading to retail by October.

The Colibri Cut is getting colored blades for those who want to cut their cigars in style. There are six options, including white on white, black on black, and then blue, red, yellow and orange, all on a black body. To achieve the process and make sure the color doesn’t scratch, the cut is a bit steeper and sharper, while the units are moving to a rubberized body. MSRP is $39.99.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
