Tobacco in tobacco pipes or in other forms has been smoked in South America for several thousand years. The exact geographical, but also chronological origin of cigars can therefore unfortunately not be more precisely proven. Originally, tobacco was used by some indigenous peoples of South America in spiritual rituals. The cigar-like tobacco products helped the priests to contact the gods. Later, tobacco was also enjoyed by tribal chiefs.
Outside South America, the success story of cigars began in the colonial era. It was probably Christopher Columbus who first encountered tobacco in the late 15th century. It was not until the 18th century that sailors brought the first Cuban cigars to North America. It was there that the first plantations were established and the first cigars produced.
Lovers of the pleasure of smoking call themselves aficionados. They literally celebrate smoking, but also the storage and preparation of a cigar. Unlike cigarettes, all the cigars you get in our shop are rolled in an intricate handcrafted process in Cuba, the Caribbean or the Dominican Republic and then imported to the UK. For many cigar smokers, smoking cigars is associated not only with pleasure, but also with the luxury of a break from reality in our fast-paced times. In some social circles, cigars are considered a status symbol; depending on their appearance and rarity, they can reach considerable value, making them also a desirable target for collectors. Cigars are also considered a popular gift for occasional smokers, especially for men, such as on the occasion of a wedding, anniversary, important birthday or the birth of a child.
Cuban cigar brands such as Cohiba, Montecristo, Partagas, Hoyo de Monterrey and Romeo y Julieta are considered timeless classics. Meanwhile, however, it is not only Cuban brands that belong to the establishment. Probably the most famous cigars outside of Cuba come from Davidoff. Preferred growing areas outside Cuba are the Dominican Republic, but also Honduras, Nicaragua and Brazil. In addition to Davidoff, modern cigar brands such as Alec Bradley and Rocky Patel are making headlines, but more traditional retailers with several cigar brands such as Villiger are also doing well.

Cigars are special products, distinguished by their nobility, character and exclusivity.A few centuries ago – Cuban cigars – came to Europe, thanks to Christopher Columbus, giving birth to a fashion which in a short time overtook the UK. The love for these special products has survived the centuries and is now increasingly popular. In the world cigar rankings, cigars created outside of Cuba are becoming increasingly popular.
Cigars can be divided into different formats and shapes. Shapes, in turn, are divided into two parts: The cigar is either with a short filler or a long filler. The filler in short filler cigars consists of cut or cracked tobacco, wrapped with a binder and covered with a cap. Short filler cigars can be made by machine or by hand.
Unlike short filler cigars, long filler cigars are composed entirely of whole leaves. In this process, different tobacco leaves are joined together and rolled through the cigar roll. Longfiller cigars require much more dexterity and are therefore not produced by machines.
Cigars are produced in different formats. These formats vary in length, thickness and shape. Thickness is determined by the ring gauge. In addition, a distinction is made between straight-shaped cigars (Parejo) and Figurado, i.e. cigars with a body of varying thickness.
The most popular cigar formats are Robusto and Corona, they represent the middle in terms of thickness and length. Among the small and thin formats, Perla and Panatela are particularly popular. For those who prefer large cigars, “Big Cigars”, the Churchill, Double Corona or Corona Gorda formats are good choices.
Figurado’s most popular formats are Torpedo, Piramide and Belicoso.
Before you can enjoy your cigar, you need to prepare it. First remove the head with a clipper, special cigar scissors or a drill. On our blog you will find detailed instructions on how to open them correctly with different cigar cutters.
After the cut, the cigar is lit. Special cigar lighters, matches or thin pieces of cedar wood are recommended for this purpose. Conventional petrol lighters can affect the taste and are therefore not recommended. On our blog you will also find a guide on ‘Lighting cigars correctly’.
To properly store cigars at home, you need a humidor. There are various humidor models available in our shop. A humidor ensures that your cigars are stored in the optimum humidity. This prevents them from drying out. When you are on the move, a tubos made of aluminium can keep your cigar protected from the elements for a short time.
A cigar always consists of a filler, a wrapper and wrapper leaves. When choosing tobacco leaves, we decide on the one hand on the plant, but also on the position of the leaf in the plant and how much exposure to the sun they get. On the other hand, there are of course differences in the cultivation and location of the plantation, in the further processing (fermentation) of the tobacco and of course in the geographical nature of the soil. The tobacco is harvested by hand, dried and then fermented. Once fermentation is complete, the tobacco is rolled by hand by cigar rollers (torcedores). Depending on the format, a skilled torcedore can roll 80-140 cigars a day. In the past, big Cuban brands such as Cohiba, Partagas, Montecristo, Hoyo de Monterrey and Romeo y Julieta produced their cigars in their own factories. Some of these grand old buildings, known as cigar palaces, can still be seen today in Cuba’s capital Havana, while others have sadly fallen victim to decay and destruction by time.
