Cigar Buying Tips for Beginners

Buying your first cigar is typically a daunting experience because so many choices exist and they use an entirely new vocabulary when describing them. Fortunately, there are a few questions you can ask to insure your success.

How many should I buy at a time?

In the beginning you won't know what you like so expect that your preferences will change quickly. For this reason, you should only buy a few at a time so you can experiment with a bunch of different ones and you're not stuck with a lot of cigars you don't like.

How strong of a cigar should I choose?

Newcomers typically find full-bodied cigars overwhelming and unpleasant. As such you should start with a mild cigar then ease into things slowly.

How much should I pay?

As with anything else in the world, you get what you pay for. However, when you start with cigars you don't need to spend a lot of money. You can pay less than $10 for high-quality cigar. These are what you should start with until your palate develops, at which time you can start buying more extravagant cigars.

Even if you forget a few of these tips, you should always remember to buy only from tobacconists. Not only do they have a large selection, but you can count on them taking good care of these cigars and taking pleasure in guiding you towards one you'll enjoy.
