Over the past few months I have been working to design a functional and innovative “crossover” product to release into the world of tobacciana. Through much research and development, I am proud to introduce The Briar Cigar! This unique smoking system embodies what we feel the industry needs.
A breath of fresh air. It seems we are entering a new renaissance of pipemaking. Younger pipemakers are coming up and getting involved in the evolution of what a modern pipe should be. This is my contribution to new atmosphere we find ourselves in. The Briar Cigar is a new take on an old shape/idea. I have designed it from the ground up to provide every bit as much enjoyment you would receive from a traditional pipe. First off, because of the in-line shape of it, the cigar needed amendments to its traditional airways.
Through late night discussions with my good friend Mimmo Romeo (Romeo Briar), We decided the pipe needed a calabash style airway. This would solve the problem of high temperatures within the airways, resulting in a cool, dry smoke. This coupled with a sandblasted surface and our proprietary bowl coat gives the Briar Cigar a perfect balance of durability and performance.
