Cigar Vending Machine
 
I came across this machine yesterday.
I have never seen one before, so I figured I'd share.
This would be great for people that say they want a cigar, so you're happy to give them one, but then they only smoke an inch before pitching it.
I hope to have one installed before my BIL's next visit. :D

I'm going to try and get more information on how the humidification works.

How does the cigar not get damaged when it falls to the bottom of the machine?

Looks to be that the smokes are in plastic tubes..guessing foam padding ?

Good catch! I didn't see the tubes initially.

I'm curious where is this machine located? Out of country?

Too funny, Dom.

I wonder if it even has a humidity system. Maybe they are relying on the packing tubes to hold humidity and the small inventory (appears to be only one of each cigar in there) for rapid product turnover.

Other than that, it looks like a standard vending machine.

Dom...why? Pablo is just going to ask Nina for the money to get it. :r :r :r

I could see this working well for those "humi-pack" cigars out there, but I can't see a huge market for it.

Now BEER in a vending machine, like the Japanese have, that's a market opportunity for you.

I'm going to also say the sealed tubes are keeping the cigars whatever humidity. Need, I grew up in the amusement and vending business, of course all he had were cigarette machines and I haven't seen one of those in a long time, looks like he abandoned the family at the right time. :lr


Since it's a corkscrew vend like that you could just load it up with Black n Milds, or Swishers or whatever you wanted and not worry about tubes.

That vending machine has good taste.

New Jersey.

And, yeah, the sticks are in tubes.
I assumed for protection, but I think Adam may be onto something with them holding in humidity as well.
The machine was mostly full, though the pics don't really show it.

Next time I'm there I'll buy one and see if any damage occurs when it falls.
I might even smoke it to see if it has humidification issues.

No promises. :tf

I assumed credit card only..until I saw the coin slot below. Don't often find myself carrying around $6 to $15 worth of quarters in my pocket. A slot for paper money would be a little more useful.

But a cool idea nonetheless.

Yeah, pretty much. :tu :noon

I'm surprised that would be legal in the US since anyone (under 18) could purchase without showing ID. While in Germany recently I did notice a lot of cigarette machines but no cigar machines or at least none that I noticed.

FYI, the legal age for tobacco products in New Jersey is 19, statewide. I qualify by noting a few dozen towns have local laws increasing that to 21. This would have been the state law as of last year, but Gov. Krispy Crisco vetoed that.

I can't keep track.

As long as they don't cap the legal age at 65, I have no reason to keep track. :D
