IPCPR 2019: Dunhill/The White Spot

Null

While Dunhill is out of the business of selling cigars with its name on it, the famed British luxury brand isn’t out of smoking accessories—though, I admittedly wouldn’t really know where to look if I wanted to buy some. When I was in the Arturo Fuente/J.C. Newman booth I saw a booth that was advertising Dunhill products, though I wasn’t sure what that meant. As it turns out, that booth is for The White Spot, which distributes the company’s products. Kalmon Hener of The White Spot invited me to stop by and I was pleasantly surprised to hear Dunhill had a new product.

The White Spot’s booth was narrow and had a variety of tobacco-related accessories in it. The most notable feature I remember about the booth is an image of the Eiffel Tower, which was likely a reference to this pipe. For those wondering, the front display case in the picture above is blocking it. The placement was pretty good given that you could see it from inside the Fuente/Newman booth.

Dunhill Turbo Lighter Updated

The Dunhill Turbo Lighter, a Swiss-made torch lighter, has been updated. Hener explained that the internals are entirely new, and yes, it’s a torch lighter not a soft flame. It’s offered in two finishes: lacquer ($950) and palladium ($1,195).

MSRP: $950/$1,195

Production: Regular Production

Release Date: June 2019

Dunhill Rollergas Colorways

There are two new designs for the Rollergas lighter: Beam ($850) and Helix ($950).  The lighter in the middle is not new.

MSRP: $850/$950

Production: Regular Production

Release Date: June 2019 

The White Spot Humidors

I wasn’t familiar with The White Spot brand so Hener showed me some of the company’s designs which include travel cases and humidors. I was particularly enamored with the Ribbon Humidors, which feature the same angular design elements on both the outside and the inside of the humidor.

These aren’t new, but for those interested, this particular version is $3,200.
