IPCPR 2015: Colibri

Null

In December, I pondered whether or not anyone would challenge XIKAR’s dominance in the $30-100 cutter and lighter market. Turns out, Colibri is going to get serious about doing it. The company has gotten over the quality issues that plagued it a few years ago, its designs continue to be sharp, but more importantly, less XIKAR-inspired and now the company is getting a salesforce. David Lampert joined the company, hired some full-time sales representative and is said to be looking at even more expansion.

Colibri Quasar Red

Quasar Humidor
The collaboration with Daniel Marshall is back for another year and more designs. There’s the same 12-inch version from last year offered in matte black as well as a new matte red finish. Only 200 units of each color are being made and they will retail for $1,500.

In addition, there’s a 16-inch version, only available in matte black, also limited to 200 units. It will retail for $1,995.

Both humidors ship at the end of this month.

Colibri Quasar Ashtray

Quasar Ashtray
To go along with the humidor, Colibri is creating a melamine ashtray designed to hold six cigars. Because it’s melamine, the ashtray can withstand heat a lot better than traditional ashtrays and is very hard to destroy via normal wear and tear.

This is not limited and will ship in November with a suggested price of $150.
