2023 Smokin Tabacco Awards: Accessory of the Year

Yellow & Gray Texture Fitness Centre Promotion Facebook Cover Accessory of the Year Palio Pistola

We saw a wide range of Accessories this year from budget friendly lighters and cool collectables to ultra-luxury yet somewhat unnecessary stone ashtrays. Sometimes the flashiest item isn’t what gets us the most excited. This year, Quality Importers adds their name to out list of award winners with the Palio Pistola. Last year, our winner was the NewAir 1,500 Electric Humidor.

At the 2023 PCA Trade Show and Convention in Las Vegas back in July, we caught up with Joe Gro at the Quality Importers booth. While there were several exciting products on display, the product that I fell in love with the most was the new Palio Pistola torch lighter. When it comes to everyday lighters and other accessories, Quality Importers doesn’t go for flash and awe but what they do make is solid products that wont break the bank and are very reliable.

This is product I have used all year long and have been so impressed with. It scored high in its review earlier this year. I spent a decent amount if time putting that together so go read that review here. But all in all it is great. Budget friendly, reliable, comfortable to hold and holds a huge amount of fuel. You would be silly to not use this lighter.
