Luxury compliments luxury. It almost has to be that way. The same rules apply in the world of cigars. El Septimo is a premium cigar. Each and every release falls comfortably inside the luxury line. It would be doing your cigars a disservice to not have the accessories that are on par. El Spetimo is putting out several items that meet the criteria. Today we will be talking about the Safari Collection Ashtrays.

Just look at this ashtray. It is more than a tool. It literally is a piece of art. Hand crafted with every detail given its due attention. You almost don't want to use it for an ashtray. It could easily be displayed for its beauty alone. Then I realized I have premium cigars to smoke and owe it to them to use this ashtray.
This part is not rocket science. It's an ashtray and you use it as such. One thing I noticed was while smoking your eyes are drawn to it. The way the light hits it and changes. The way it looks through a cloud of smoke. It is just an amazing piece that is definitely eye candy suitable.
So I wanted to proceed with caution on this part. There is a non-stick bottom that I am certain can be wiped down, but why take the chance. After my smoke session I wiped the inside down with a wet rag until all the ash was gone. I dried it and put it away safely until it was time to use it again. The protective coating makes cleaning it a breeze. You could clean it with a dry rag and everything will just wipe away. I know this is not a huge deal, but it was notable and deserved a mention.
I love this ashtray. The look, the construction, the luxury. Everything about it is amazing. Beautiful craftmanship with unique design makes it an absolute must have. Stay tuned to the El Septimo's Instagram to see what version is next to come out.
