The Mini Torpedo from La Flor Dominicana is Small but Mighty

If you've been looking for a cigar that’s tiny but packs a big punch, here’s just what you need. The La Flor Dominicana Torpedito Ligero Oscuro Natural is now available at smoke shops after making its debut at this year’s IPC&PR show.


Like most of the La Flor Dominicana line, the Torpedito is very strong. As Litto Gomez described the powerful tobacco in his latest smoke, “We put a little extra ligero in there. We probably should have called it Double Ligero.”

The La Flor Dominicana Torpedito Ligero Oscuro Natural is 4 ¾ inches by 50 ring gauge and comes in boxes of $40. The mini torpedos sell for $7 each.

Illinois Cigar Shop Combines Smokes, Sports

If a shop offering both cigars and sports memorabilia is your idea of heaven, you’ll want to check out Around the World Cigars, Gifts in Park Ridge, IL. Don’t let the entrance fool you, because behind the candy and newspapers lies a treasure trove of guy-type goodies.


Next you’ll find the selection of sports items, including baseball cards and figurines, but soon the delightful smell of a well-stocked humidor leads you to the real prize. Located in the rear of the store, the smoking lounge contains cushy leather sofas and chairs, plus overhead TVs. This is the place to relax with one of the shop’s selection of close to 800 cigars.

Owner Alpesh Shah explained why he was able to incorporate such a lounge into his establishment. “I’d like to thank the city of Park Ridge for grandfathering us in. Five years ago, we were grandfathered in to smoke cigars. You can smoke cigars in a lounge like this. Now you cannot have a cigar lounge unless you have a free-standing building (so smoke does not drift into the next-door business).

“It’s almost not worth it to do it anymore. But our thanks to all our customers.”

Around the World Cigars, Gifts is located at 31 ½ Prospect in Park Ridge, IL.

Make Golfing Easier with the ‘GarTender

Do you like to enjoy a cigar while playing a game of golf? If so, you've probably discovered there’s no good place to park your stogie while your hands are occupied making a shot. One avid golfer has come up with a clever solution for keeping your cigar clean and lit on the course.

Douglas Holzrichter of Geneva, IL, was frustrated by trying to smoke while golfing, complaining that, “There was never a good place to set a cigar on the golf course and a cigar doesn't burn well on a windy day.” His answer to this problem was the ‘GarTender, which he had patented in 2009.

The ‘GarTender is an ingenious plastic tube that holds the cigar safely in place, keeping it protected from winds, wet grass and other hazards presented on the golf course.

The ‘GarTender sells for $15 and is available at Amazon or
