FrontRunners: Select Smoke

    MONTECRISTO GOLF SET
    Although logo-emblazoned balls and tees lend a sporting theme to the Montecristo Golf Set, the package’s real prizes are its 27 cigars and delightful polygonal box. Replace the golf tchotchkes in the container with a humidifier, and you have a distinctive desktop humidor packed with various sizes of the Serie V, Platinum, and White. The array of smokes should provide ample comfort even if all three balls meet their demise in your first nine holes. ($250) www.altadisusa.com
