Smoking a cigar is an enduring pleasure that the cigarettes do not provide. In fact, branded and quality cigars are believed to be the status symbol that showcases your wealth and class. They come in a variety of flavors and brands to cater the tastes of different people. Put simply, smoking a cigar has long been a popular way to portray an air of high-status, especially in business deals to confirm your dominant status.

The history of a cigar

Researchers teach us that the cigar has been in use for more than five hundred years. According to history, records show that citizens of Europe were much more unaware of tobacco before Columbus's grand trip of 1492. However, the original native population of the islands in the Caribbean and the rest of North America started the use of cigars. Since then, cigar smoking has generated a lot of interest and passion in the United States as well as European countries.

Types of cigars: choose according to your taste

Different people have different favorite types of cigars. Many cigars have their own unique specialty they have gained favor by aficionados globally. Cigars offer a number of options to choose from but only a handful boast global recognition. Some of these include Gurkha Cigars, Macanudo Cigars, Cohiba Cigars, Padron Cigars, Acid Cigars, Ashton Cigars, Arturo Fuente Cigars, Montecristo Cigars and the list goes on. Basically, every cigar has three parts - the filler, the binder and the wrapper.

Storage of cigars

As mentioned above, cigar smoking is an enduring pleasure that comes with a fresh and fine cigar. But it is a fact that cigars are very fragile and need special storage as well as an environment of sufficient humidity to keep the cigar tobacco fresh and tasty. This is why a good quality humidor is essential to keep cigars fresh and classy by keeping them away from a number of problems like harsh taste, a broken wrapper, fast burn, tobacco beetle infestation and difficulty in lighting. Put simply, a good quality cigar humidor keeps cigars in an environment of ideal humidity because an ideal humidity of around 55 to 70 percent is required to remain the tobacco fresh.

Buy your favorite cigars online

The availability of premium branded cigars at online stores at reasonable prices has also increased the popularity of cigars. One of the interesting factors about purchasing cigars online is that you don’t have to worry about the delicate nature of cigars. Moreover, these online stores accept all types of payment options like Paypal and credit cards and also deliver them to your doorstep as quickly as overnight if you desire.

They truly are great smokes, although pricey, they capture the essence of a well-made cigar! Had one a few weeks ago, it was fabulous! The Fuente family knows how to roll a good smokes that is easy on the palate and enhances the senses! HIghly recommended but if anyone knows Fuente cigars, they are like Ferrari or Porsche, they require no introduction! They speak for themselves!
