Buying Boxed Cigars
Boxed cigars are commonly bought by connoisseurs who want to get the most out of their purchase. When you’re purchasing a box of cigars, you’ll want to be sure you get the right brand. Do you like them enough to buy 20? And do you have a humidor to help keep them fresh?
The main incentive to buy a bulk of cigars is simply to save a few pounds. It’s also handy to have a supply so you don’t have to go to the cigar shop every time you want a cigar. Having your own selection of cigars also means you can keep them for a while and possibly improve the taste.
There are a couple of cons as well, if the cigars are not individually wrapped and you don’t have a humidor, you won’t be able to keep them fresh for long and they’ll dry out. The extra cash spent can be a waste if you decide you don’t really like the cigars (try to make sure you do first!).
Of course, when it comes to selecting your cigars, it’s important to know which type (depending on the region) is best for your tastes. As with everything, you should always try before making a judgement on one particular brand.
As classic films have made them iconic over the years, there’s a high demand for Cuban cigars and there has been for many decades. This isn’t just down to the style however as they are some of the most professionally crafted cigars you can find, allowing plenty of exquisite aromas and flavours with each puff.
You should never neglect other options when it comes to alternative cigar choices because who can really resist smoking more cigars as an excuse to broaden your palate? Sample some of Nicaragua's finest, Honduras' best or the Dominican Republic's most desired amongst many others.
Buying a bulk of cigars is good if you have a humidor to keep them fresh and have a few friends that’ll have one or two on an evening out. Otherwise, it’s just as easy to pop to your local tobacco shop and purchase a few individually each time!
