Buying Cigars Online

With the decline in brick-and-mortar stores and more customers using online stores to make purchases, it can be worrying how much we rely on a screen to show us the quality of a product. Particularly with Cigars as you are unable to smell, see or feel their distinctive merits. With cigar merchants that only stock online it can become a minefield trying to figure out which one is the best choice.

The United Kingdom, in particular, has seen an increase in online cigar merchants and it is expected to rise. While it’s no wonder shoppers are becoming increasingly overwhelmed by this abundance of choices, at the same time by the prospect of potentially being scammed. Unfortunately, this is quite common in online shopping and specifically cigar shopping. To support your confidence, we suggest several things you can do to make sure you buy the best Cuban and New World Cigars.

Order Cigar Samplers

By ordering cigar samplers, you not only reduce the risk of wasting a lot of money but it allows you to discover what notes and preferred flavours. Through sampler packs, you are offered different cigars for you to try, giving you the opportunity to decide which ones you love the most.  Additionally, purchasing a small amount, allows you to check if the merchants are trustworthy or worth the money. Though there are many great online cigar merchants, there is always the chance a store might be selling low-quality bogus tobacco, or simply have bad customer service.

If you want to try some cigars, We offer some fantastic Mixed Cigar Samplers, such as our Beginners Cuban Selection Sampler which includes a selection of very well-known and much-adored cigars, Boveda pack, and good-looking Cohiba Ceramic Rest.

Compare The Cigar Retailers

We know the prospect of a cheap cigar can sometimes be so tempting that you find yourself reaching for your wallet before you can say ‘cheapest cigars online’. But most of the time, these risks don’t pay off and you can be left with a batch of bad cigars which don’t stay lit, etc. Any savvy aficionado will know the correct prices of cigars and know when a price really is too good to be true. 

It’s very easy for cigar merchants to claim that their products are genuine. But no matter what, stay smart and always check the credibility of the merchant, as well as the price of the products.

Contact The Cigar Retailer And Ask Questions

Something which a lot of people don’t do these days is to engage with each other – stuck behind computer screens, mobile displays, just tapping away – it can become very impersonal shopping online. Some of the most enjoyable shopping experiences though are ones where a shop assistant has offered a helping hand, suggestions, or simply answered any questions you have. So why not reach out, Live Chat, Call or Email when shopping for cigars online. Personally, we always love to hear from you and answer any of your questions, or concerns, or even if you’d like to just discuss cigars, we’d be happy to help. 

And finally, make sure that the Cigar Retailer you are dealing with declares their address, email, and contact number. Always make sure that you check the TrustPilot reviews.

We hope that has helped you figure out the big wide world of shopping for cigars online and we look forward to welcoming you!
