London Cut Cigars are the geniuses behind these new beauties. Their Black Tie, Gold Hand-Rolled Cigar Box Set, for instance, is priced at a cool US$4,800 and includes 20 fine Dominican cigars rolled in 24K edible gold, a Custom Black Tie Cutter and Black Glass Top Humidor. There are some products so outrageous they make you angry, but there are other products so outrageous they make you smile, wonder and desire. This is one of the latter.
The company’s other great offering, the London Cut Bourbon-Aged Cigar (US$240), is a real find. They take their house cigar and infuse it with bourbon, a perfect accompaniment to your favourite tipple at the end of a night. Shipping to Hong Kong costs US$50, so if you’ve got a big birthday coming up, a divorce, or anything else momentous on the horizon, you know how to celebrate.
