Cigar Industry Leaders: Denis
Title: Owner & Blogger of Cigarinspector.com
Where did you grow up? In a cold European country.
Favorite Candy? Italian gelato. Does it qualify as candy?
Movie? Hard to mention only one movie, here are three random movies out of my top 10: Life is Beautiful (1997), Groundhog Day (1993), Scent of a Woman (1992).
Band? The Beatles & Queen.
Food? Boiled scampi with a glass of Puligny-Montrachet.
Sports Team? FC Barcelona
If your house was on fire, what would be the first item you would grab? Since my laptop is often in my bag, I’d try to grab a dozen of wine bottles from my cellar – got some nice aged stuff in there.
If you were a superhero what powers would you have? Turn back time.
If your life had a theme song, what would it be? Comptine d’un autre été (Amelie OST)
If you had a warning label, what would yours say? Warning: Don’t tell me what to do, I’m no longer able to provide a warning shot.
If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go? Cambodia and Vietnam, on a three weeks trip.
Cigar: Cubans: Montecristos (Petit Edmundo, No. 2…), non-Cubans: the whole Oliva V series (natural wrappers).
Lighter: Zippo butane insert.
Cutter: I’m using simple punches more and more, and my Xikar Xi(X) for torpedos.
Humidor: I wish I could have a walk-in humidor… Until then, something classic like a Dakota or a Milano would perfectly suit my needs (not a fan of glass-top humidors).
