3 Things to Look for When Buying Cigars

If you’ve recently started smoking cigars or are wanting to start, you’ve probably realized that there are a lot out of choices out there. You might also feel that and many of them seem very similar. It can be a difficult maze to navigate, especially if you want to order cigars online rather than from a store. In this guide, we’ll be discussing what factors you’ll need to pay attention to before purchasing your cigars online.


Quality cigars typically have long-filler tobaccos in them and are made by hand. Before buying any cigar, you should first set your price range and figure out what’s available within that range. Of course, expense often correlates with quality, but it’s not always the case. Truthfully, you can enjoy lower-cost cigars if you choose carefully, so when assessing a cigar’s quality don’t only look at the price tag. Always look at how the cigar is made and go with a trusted brand like Corona Cigar Co.


Before you buy any cigars online, you should also think about what you want them to taste like. Different types of cigars might be spicy, sweet, mild or full-bodied. Learn what flavor appeals to you and think about the corresponding aroma as well since you’ll be enveloped in it. Typically, cigar flavors can range from having flavors of nuts, woods, or even cinnamon. We recommend trying several different flavors in order to find the one you really like.

Size and Shape

A cigar with a larger gauge, or diameter, will take longer to smoke and have less concentrated flavor. Longer cigars will, of course, take longer to smoke than shorter cigars so keep this in mind when purchasing your cigars. You should also take a look at different styles to see which feels best in your hand. You might even want to visit a tobacconist to hold a few before you buy your cigars online. There are two main shapes for cigars: parejos, which have straight sides, and figurados, which have irregular shapes. Using this knowledge, try these two shapes yourself and see what feels best for you.
