Position: President, a.k.a. Head Honcho, a.k.a. Boss Man
Where did you grow up? Glen Cove, NY. A tiny suburb nestled on Long Island
Favorite Candy? Sour Patch Kids, but not the orange ones. Those are nasty!
Animal? Dogs, specifically Golden Retrievers
Movie? Tough question. Band of Brothers is my favorite mini-series. The Bourne movies are my favorite action/adventure. Somewhere in Time is my favorite sappy movie. Office Space is my favorite comedy.
Band? Aersosmith all the way
Food? Another tough one. For seafood it would have to be raw clams/oysters. Italian I’ll go with the standard Chicken Parmesan with a little Broccoli Rabe. French? Frog legs, baby! For American, I’d have to say filet mignon, super rare, like mooing rare.
Sports Team? Uhh, I don’t partake in watching sports. So I’ll pass on this one.
If your house was on fire, what would be the first item you would grab? Assuming I am saving my wife, two kids and dog, I would have to say my two Rolex watches. One was given to me by my dad before he died. The other to me by my step-father after he died. They both have a lot of sentimental value and I’d like to give them to my two boys, hopefully while I am still alive.
If you were a superhero what powers would you have? I’d like to have the power to read minds. It would enable me to get so much done, knowing what the other person was thinking and cut right to the chase.
If your life had a theme song, what would it be? Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N Roses.
If you had a warning label, what would yours say? Warning: Long term exposure might cause frustration and aggravation. Do not shake or upset as contents might explode. Beware of tough exterior and soft/gooey interior.
If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go? I’d love to travel Europe by train.
Well, folks, here’s the staff pick you’ve been waiting for. The man behind the humidor. The entrepreneur behind the company. The mastermind behind the website. The boss. The creator. The architect. The alpha and the omega. THE Dave Sabot.
Dave started CheapHumidors.com more than 17 years ago from his living room in New York. Today he “runs” the company from the comfort of his throne above the warehouse in Tampa, watching his minions do his dirty work, occasionally cracking the whip as he puffs on his Cuban cigar.
Just kidding. Dave doesn’t smoke Cubans. He just enjoys watching them burn, along with his cash and the occasional lazy intern. The truth is, without Dave behind the helm, we’d all be homeless drug addicts, and for that, we are grateful.
Cigar: Aging Room Quattro, or really anything by Boutique Blends.
Cutter: Vertigo Punch Light
It attaches to your keychain and has a built-in flashlight. You know how many times I’ve used that flashlight to find crap my kids have dropped under the seats in the van, and the punch is pretty handy too.
Lighter: Black Label El Presidente Flat Flame Lighter
This lighter is great; it has a super slim design so you can slip it into your pocket without feeling weighed down and it has a flat flame. Bad Ass!
Humidor: Nottingham Wood and Leather Humidor
If Robin Hood had a humidor, this is what it would look like. I love the leather and the studded accents. But my all time favorite humidor is the Verona Cabinet Humidor. I love them so much I made my warehouse manager set two of them up in my office so I can stare at them all day.
