Every cigar smoker has been in the predicament. You're halfway through a great cigar and suddenly you're forced to extinguish it. Whether it's because of antismoking laws or your wife, sometimes you just can't win. Putting out your cigar is the only choice. But does that really mean you have to abandon your cigar in some ashtray? No way. You're going to want to finish that baby later, so why not keep it safe -- primed and ready to fire up again. Time to try out the Cigar Savor.
Distributed by Altadis USA, the Cigar Savor is an invaluable tool, even if it does look a little hokey at first. The important thing is that the Cigar Savor works and it works well. It accommodates partially smoked cigars up to 7 1/2 inches long with a 51 ring gauge. The key element is its self-adjusting spring mechanism, featuring a heat-absorbing snuffer to extinguish the lit end of the cigar. The spring also pushes the cigar against the bottom of the cap, helping to reshape the wet end. The cap is screw-on to keep the tube airtight, which prevents any cigar odors from escaping. A second cap, located at the other end of the tube, is also screw-on and allows you to empty the Cigar Savor of any ash that collects.
The Original Cigar Savor retails for $25 and is available in nine colors, but the Altadis catalog includes other styles that range in price from $79 to $250. These include Cigars Savors made of pewter and stamina wood, and ones that include golf motifs and the Cigar Aficionado logo. For more information, contact Altadis at 800-683-8800.
