Press Release | HumiForm™ 50 V – Cigar Humidifier

HumiForm™ is partially fabricated and assembled in the USA and is a rustic looking product aimed at the consumer who wants a low maintenance humidifying solution.

Center Valley, PA, December 04, 2018 –(PR.com)– Origineer Design was established in 2015 to innovate and improve everyday products. The founder, Damon DeBusk, is an experienced engineer and manager for over 35 years. On November 13, 2018, a US Patent was granted for HumiForm™ a cigar related product intended to humidify cigars without the need for regular maintenance.

HumiForm Cigar Humidifiers

The slogan for the device is “Wet It & Forget It.” Damon DeBusk states, “The bow tie design works well and distributes humidity evenly in the 70% RH range. Depending on how much water vapor you want to be released, you expose more filament. Best of all, you won’t have to touch it for almost a year in some cases.”

HumiForm Cigar Humidifiers

Cigar enthusiast and marketer, Mark Swanson, stated when asked what he thought of the product, “I like that there is no need for electricity or batteries. It’s simple and has a nostalgic look to it. It uses ropes for humidifying instead of having sponges, beads or pouches that look like they don’t belong in your humidor. It’s rustic looking, and that fits right in there with the cigars I enjoy.”

HumiForm Cigar Humidifiers

Origineer Design is a pioneering company that seeks to create awareness for its cigar humidifier by working with key influencers and retailers. The company is open to working with individual influencers of any size and eager to find reseller partners both large and small. Companies and influencers can contact Origineer on the company website.

Cigar Review | Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story

The Hemingway Short Story by Arturo Fuente is a classic cigar. Known by connoisseurs and cigar reviewers as a consistent and enjoyable experience, the cigars are produced in the Dominican Republic by cigar master Carlito Fuente. Hailing from the Dominican Republic, the binder and filler are surrounded by a light brown Cameroon wrapper. The Hemingway line is a selection of Perfectos which are produced in sizes from the small Short Story (4.0 x 49) to the mammoth Masterpiece which weighs in at a massive 9 inches long (9 x 52).

iROBUSTO was thrilled when Holt’s contacted us to review a cigar for the Holiday season. The cigar chosen for this review was the Arturo Fuente Short Story. Fuente’s are known for their consistent quality, high ratings and satisfying smoking experiences. When it comes to cigars and the holidays, it’s always a good time to reflect and celebrate. It is especially helpful to revisit a cigar that you have previously enjoyed. The Arturo Fuente Hemingway is enjoyable and delivers excellent value.

Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story

Presentation

The cigar makes an excellent presentation. Immediately, you notice the quality of the construction. The wrapper has a few light veins and light brown color. You can’t help but see the beautiful matte finish and feel. Though small, the Short Story feels like a quality cigar in your hand. The sleek Perfecto shape is good looking and lights easily.

From the first few puffs, it delivers a pleasant medium tobacco taste with tinges of brown sugar and welcoming white pepper. The finish is medium to long making the smoke easy to retrohale. The cigar has voluminous smoke output. As the cigar puts out plumes of smoke, the aroma of the room note is of a classic cigar.

The flavors remain consistent and over time the pepper increases to strong black pepper. The pepper is not overwhelming and doesn’t overshadow the notes of earth and the tobacco core. Dominican cigars sometimes have a metallic taste which is caused by the mineral content of the soil. Such is not the case with the Short Story. Strong mineral flavors can disrupt the balance of a Dominican cigar. In the case of the Arturo Fuente Hemingway, the characteristics remain balanced as it delivers medium strength and body.

Smoking Time: 40-50 minutes

As the cigar nears its end, the brown sugar fades into a pleasant bread yeast-like flavor. The Arturo Fuente Short Story never overheated or suffered from bitter flavors. During the entire smoking journey, the cigar had an even burn, and no touch-ups were required. Many cigar reviewers and sites describe smoking this cigar as a friendly and satisfying experience. One of the many good things about this cigar is that it lives up to the hype.

Company Awards

Best Boutique Company of the Year

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust has continued to put out excellent cigars year after year. Every release from this company is box-worthy, and 2018 has been another year of hits. They claimed two spots on CutLightSmoke’s Top 25 including #1 cigar of 2018 with Sin Compromiso and the #1 spot on the iROBUSTO Community Top 25 list. They are leading the cigar industry in a direction all cigar smokers should appreciate.

Best Big Dog of the Year

Drew Estate Cigars killed it in 2018. We saw excellent additions to the Liga Privada line and tons of other new releases. The Joya de Nicragua side of the company blew it out of the water with the Cinco Decadas, and the infused sector saw some new options. They came out swinging, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed the new offerings we’ve smoked and reviewed.

Most Affordable Company of the Year

This one goes to General Cigar – hands down the best value of the year. Aside from the newest Cohiba, most of their huge 2018 portfolio fell in the $6-8 range for some very tasty cigars. They’ve put out some great stuff the last few years and produced excellent collaborations.

Crowned Heads Luminosa Toro | S4E34

This week we do the Crowned Heads Luminosa Toro Cigar on the Meet in the Middle Cigar Show. Every week we review a new cigar and you never know what will happen on the longest running cigar show on YouTube, Meet in the Middle.
