Experience – Your experience in smoking cigars will determine your personal threshold in tobacco strength.

You can then build up your experience and try out new flavours once you feel more confident. Come into our store where we’ll give you specific advice on which cigars you ought to consider, based on your previous smoking experiences. Our friendly staff will walk you through the different cigar blends and their strengths.


Timing – How long do you intend to smoke your cigar? Your desired smoking timeframe is helpful in directing you to which cigar size, shape and gauge you should look into. If you want a shorter smoke, focus on cigars that are thinner and shorter in size.


Occasion – Special occasions may influence your decision in choosing your cigar. If you’re going to smoke your cigar at a party or a wedding, consider a more exclusive cigar. If your budget allows for it, put some thought into some vintage or limited-edition cigars. A special cigar will further enhance your experience at your event, making it more of an instance to reminisce about in the future.


Your Personal Palette – Whether you are brand new to cigars or have been casually smoking for years, choosing the right cigar for you will ultimately come down to your own personal preferences in taste and your previous smoking experiences.
