FrontRunners: Select Smoke

The Editors

The G in the Saint Louis Rey Serie G Natural line stands for grande, and these Falstaffian cigars certainly earn that designation. The slimmest in the line has a ring gauge of 54, the largest size commonly found in smoke shops. The heftiest Serie G is the 6-inch No. 6 shown here. The cigar’s 60 ring gauge, which translates to a diameter of 15/16 inch, produces a cool, easy-drawing smoke. The Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos used in the Serie G typically have an intense taste, but the cigar’s creators somehow have coaxed the mild flavor of a vintage Dominican from these leaves. ($5 to $7.50 each) www.altadisusa.com

The striking Gershon Warthog Cigar Cutter stands no chance of going unnoticed in your smoking lounge—or of disappearing into the void that so often claims pocket-size cigar cutters (along with pens, cell phones, and keys). The handle of this stainless steel, guillotine-style cutter is a warthog tusk, which affords an easy grip and lends the device a unique look befitting the Explorers Club. A black leather storage pouch is included. ($140) www.gershonjewelers.com
