Tampa, Florida based Cigar City Humidors by BCIC was one of twenty Tampa artisan companies selected to participate in the first ever Crafty Entrepreneur Showcase sponsored by the Clearwater Public Library System on October 26, 2019 from noon to 4:00PM. As part of the event the founder of Cigar City Humidors, David Happe, was selected to speak at 2:00PM on entrepreneurship and scaling a business born out of passion. Dave has sold multiple businesses, most recently in October 2017 when he sold his last company to Mace Security International. His most recent launch, hand crafted Cigar City Humidors, is launching nationally during the 4th quarter of 2019.
“The 16 cigar vertical by Cigar City Humidors is unique, and my favorite design. It’s the main reason I bought the company”said David Happe, head tobacconist at Cigar City Humidors.“People who buy decent cigars don’t want to store them in some cheaply made Chinese drywall particleboard jewelry box. Our 16 vertical model is a real wood humidor, made by adult craftsmen at a North American wood shop, using real Spanish Cedar internals. Maybe for the first time ever, cigar enthusiasts have something to keep their cigars in that is worthy of the cigars they like.”
Cigars are comprised of surprisingly few component parts. Cigars are all tobacco. What makes one cigar so different from another is the type of tobacco, when the leaves are picked, how they are cured and fermented, and how the finished leaves are cut and rolled. Because cigars are made in so many parts of the world, there is a wide range of diverse range of cigars available for you to smoke.
The Viajero (pronounced byah-heh-roh, Spanish for “traveler”), previously available in dark burgundy gloss, is now joined by sister models in cedar finish and mahogany gloss. All three models feature authentic Spanish cedar internals, hand layered glossy finishes, 4-5 cigar capacity, and a built-in hygrometer and humidifier. Designed specifically as a better alternative to cheap Chinese imported travel humidors, the Cigar City Humidors™ Traveler models are handcrafted by adult cigar artisans in North America.
