Rocky Patel ships eight new varieties of laser lighters

Rocky Patel Premium Cigars’ recent accessory announcements didn’t stop at cutters. Retailers have begun to receive Rocky Patel’s eight new varieties of Laser Lighters, which were unveiled at the IPCPR trade show in July 2017.

The “laser” is actually part of the mechanism for triggering a single-flame torch. After lifting the cap, you use your thumb to break a laser field in a recessed portion of the lighter, which gets the flame going until you close the cap again.


Each of the eight new lighters is branded with the name of a popular Rocky Patel cigar line: Royale, Fifty-Five, Special Edition, Vintage 2006, Java Maduro, Java Latte, Java Mint, and Java Red.

The lighters retail for $58 and come with lifetime warranties.

The cutters will also be available as gift items with box purchases at Rocky Patel in-store events. Two additional patterns will be available exclusively at BURN by Rocky Patel cigar lounges.


Five great gifts to get dad this Father's Day

Every dad is different, but it’s been our experience that most of your fathers have three interests in common: smoking, eating and drinking. With that in mind, we found a few gifts that should be instant hits. Hell, you’ll probably want them for yourself, too.

Brizard and Co. Zebrawood cigar accessories

  • The “Deck” Ashtray Oval (double): $120
  • The “Elite” Cigar Cutter: $115
  • The Cylinder Desk Humidor: $199
  • The “Show Band” 3 cigar case: $145

This company has been making beautiful cigar accoutrements for a long time. When we saw this zebrawood nish, we knew we had to let people know about it. It’s bright and eye-catching enough for ashier guys, yet understated and elegant enough not to embarrass your dad if he’s on the conservative side.


Coravin Model Eight Wine System


What if you could pour your wine without ever opening the bottle? This gadget pumps argon gas (which won’t oxidize your wine) into your bottle, pumping the wine back out through a hypodermic needle. When you pull the needle out, the cork seals itself, so you can come back to that bottle weeks, even months later and still enjoy it.


GoSun Sport

No fuel. No electricity. Just the sun being reflected into a glass tube and heating up the inside enough to cook just about any meal. It’s perfect for your outdoorsman dad. Sound too good to be true? We tested the sport model and became instant believers.


Vinturi Red Wine Aerator


Pour your wine through this thing, and your wine goes into the glass instantly aerated, bringing you better bouquet, flavors and finish. It’ll also minimize sediment and — if you were sloppy with the bottle opener — cork in your glass.


Thermopro TP-08 Wireless Thermometer

Leave the thermometer in your meat and monitor the temperature from up to 300 feet away. This will make Dad the ultimate multitasking grillmaster.

Video: Davidoff's Cave de Paille humidors at Art Basel Miami Beach

Every year at Art Basel Miami Beach's Collector's Lounge, we get a chance to see what's new from Davidoff's art initiative. This time around, it was these three beautiful humidors, each designed by artist Lison de Caunes. Tobacco is brought to life (first growing, then aging, then as ash) by her painstaking work laying straw into each box.

In all, there are only 40 of these humidors out there, and they're only available at Art Basel events (which are held in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami Beach).
