Cigars Online - Life Is Good
I learned from Wise Girl that the way to get great cigars at good prices is shop for samplers. I started shopping all the online stores and comparing prices with my local cigar store - The White Ash. I found what I thought was a great deal on a sampler from Cigar.COM. For $49.95 I would receive 12 cigars. The twelve were made of three cigars from four different cigar makers. Add $5.95 shipping for a total of $55.90. Divide that by twelve and I have $4.66 a stick invested. I will disclose the appeal of this sampler was I have not tried any of these particular cigars before.
I received three CAO Black Bengals. They average from $5 to $8 a stick. Three Don Pepin Garcia Vegas Cubanas - A $6 to $8 stick. Three Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Pressed Cigars - These are $7 to $8 (worth more)
And the kicker! Three Gurkha Titans! Those are $20 sticks! Throw in this pretty cool ashtray and I am pleased with my cigar.com experience. Eat your heart out Spanky! So my ODBA cigar smoking buddies Chris, Alton, Jerry, and the Philbilly, Concrete Bob, the cigars are on me! James Young is also a fellow cigar smoker and I hope one day to meet him and enjoy a drink and a cigar. I don't want to forget Alex who has commented on the joys of fine tobaccos before.
