FrontRunners: To Die For

<< Back to Robb Report, July 2004

Elie Bleu (elie.bleu@wanadoo.fr) does not gamble when it comes to caring for cigars, but the venerable French humidor maker took its cue from the casino when it created the Vegas Collection ($2,475).

The 50 die-shaped humidors in the limited edition have been finished with dark sycamore veneer, inlaid with mother-of-pearl, and sealed with eight layers of hand-polished lacquer—eight the hard way, as craps players might say. Each die accommodates 100 cigars on three levels of storage and is equipped with an analog hygrometer and a refillable humidity pad.
