Here at Cheap Humidors, our staff is passionate about cigars and cigar accessories. We all have our favorite cigars and accessories as well as our own insights into cigar smoking. So in an attempt to get to know us better (who DOESN’T want to get to know us better?) we are letting the members of our staff share their staff picks (including cigars) with you.
Drew (AJ) Brannen
Position: Operations Manager
Where did you grow up? Born and raised in Tampa, Florida.
Favorite Candy? Lifesaver Gummies but I love all gummies!
Animal? Black Panther
Movie? Star Wars
Band? Metallica (duh!)
Food? A big juicy burger
Sports Team? Tampa Bay Buccaneers (big surprise huh?)
If your house was on fire, what would be the first item you would grab? I should say my humidor, but in actuality it would be my dogs.
If you were a superhero what powers would you have? I loved Superman growing up, so everything that guy can do!
If your life had a theme song, what would it be? Bob Marley – Three little Birds (I got no worries)
If you had a warning label, what would yours say? WARNING: EXTREMELY LOUD! Do not stand too close as I may cause hearing loss.
If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go? Cuba, because it looks beautiful and I wanna try a few more Cuban cigars.
Drew recommends the Vertigo Intimidator Quad Flame Lighter because, “IT’S GOT FOUR FLAMES! AND THEY’RE RED!” (it was definitely necessary for him to yell this). Drew’s go-to cutter is the Stainless Steel Perfect-Cut Golf Cutter. The razor sharp blades and back panel give you the perfect cut every time.
Of all the humidors he keeps in his house, his favorite is the Man O’ War Cigar Humidor, despite the fact that he has never smoked a Man O’ War Cigar – he just likes the design.
Want a bit of smoking advice from Drew?
“Just because 99% of the people who smoke a specific cigar are women does NOT make it a woman’s cigar.” Whatever allows you to sleep at night Drew.
