Yes, that’s right, Chris is a college boy. In fact, that’s how we met! Chris started as an intern last semester. Once we got him drunk (not on the job), we just knew we had to hire him.
Chris’s pastimes include keeping a body mass index below 10% while eating Checkers (pretty impressive huh?), being bench pressed by Tom (our Warehouse Manager), and zipping around in his Audi A4. He weighs less than my left pinky and giggles like a Japanese school girl. Now that we actually pay him, we like to keep his comedy in check and make a sincere effort to crush his dream of becoming a Han Solo impersonator. Now onto the good stuff: his staff picks for cigars and accessories.
Cigar: Arturo Fuente Sungrown
I’ve had a few of these cigars and each time I enjoy them even more. These cigars are distinguished with a Sun Grown Ecuadorian wrapper. Plus, they’re rich yet sweet in flavor and they have a marvelous aroma. (Just like me – I’m sweet and I smell good – AND I’m secretly a millionaire.)
Cutter: Xikar Xi Cutter
This Xikar Xi Cutter makes a perfect cut every time and Xikar backs it up with a lifetime warranty you won’t even need! The best feature of this cutter is the awesome switchblade action that shoots out with the push of a button. It’s great for scrawny guys like me who need to protect themselves. (Why do you think I fled the south of Florida?)
Lighter: Tonino Lamborghini Estremo
It’s Lamborghini, need I say more? I’m all about quality, class, and showmanship. The design is pretty sweet lookin’ and it comes in four colors besides black for those of you that want to be the center of attention. And if it isn’t already durable enough, it comes with a cool leather case for extra protection.
Humidor: Treasure Dome Cigar Humidor
As a former pirate in a past life, I’ve gotta go with The Treasure Dome Cigar Humidor. Why is the rum always gone? This humidor is loaded with features like spanish cedar interior, brass hardware throughout, plenty of dividers and trays, and an aerator for circulation. You’re getting quite a bit for this price. Now if only I could get the Legend of Zelda song to play each time I opened it, that would be perfect.
