IPCPR 2016
 

           The 84th Annual International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailer Trade Show and Convention took place this week in Las Vegas, Nevada. XIKAR is thrilled to introduce several new innovations to our product line, as well as stunning new finishes to existing fan favorites and a variety of Limited Edition Gift Sets that will be available in time for the holiday season.
   These products were very well received by our valued XIKAR retailers, and we are overjoyed for them to deliver to stores throughout the upcoming months and into the hands of the XIKAR Nation!
   The XO cutter was perhaps the most highly anticipated launch at IPCPR this year. This ultimate cutting machine's revolutionary planetary gear system and unique circular form create an instant visual intrigue, with the popular opinion, "Once you get it in your hand, you’re hooked!”
   The Xidris single flame lighter was another popular item at the show, sure to fast track its way into your accessory collection. This high performance inspired lighter comes in a variety of eight striking color combinations and is equipped with XIKAR’s reliable Direct Inject™ Flame Technology.
   Find an overview of all new product introductions throughout this newsletter and on the XIKAR 2016 New Innovations Page, and keep an eye out for more exciting information including availability, coming soon!

Winds (of change) are blowing! 
 

   I see lots of air moving around us these days!  Here in Kansas City, we’ve had incredibly unseasonal weather - in the 70 degree range.  These temperature swings arrive on strong warm winds from the southwest, usually in a matter of hours. Here we say, “if you don’t like the weather, just wait a day!”
   Speaking of warm winds, we get to witness a lot of hot air of another kind, on the political front this year.  Has another political race ever been this raucous and entertaining?  (Apparently so – even the founding fathers were well-known scrappers)  Either way, I predict that if you don’t like the current political weather, just wait a day, or a few minutes, and you’ll continue to see change.
   Wind also changes the environment of your humidor.  XIKAR is proud to announce our newest innovation: a humidor fan which automatically circulates the air in your humidor (for 15 seconds every 15 minutes).  This helps the overall ambience by overcoming gravity: humid air is heavier than dry, and tends to sit at the bottom of your humidor. It needs circulation which the HumiFan provides.  Here’s an additional tip: if you have a shelf / tray in your humidor, keep the cigars away from the sides – this will assist in the air rotation.

Happy smoking!
