C and C Gordo Cigars are one of the more recent additions to the Thompson Online Cigar Store. However, despite being one of the newer cigars on the block, these smokes are attracting quite the following. In fact, some people have been buying a few samplers at a time because these sticks make for fantastic everyday smokes. The thing about these cigars is that they fit the bill as an everyday stick by merit of their low price (10 sticks for less than $30) while also being a premium 6 x 60 cigar. Yes, the Corojo has a 90 rating and both sticks in this sampler are good enough to merit a special place in any humidor.
The recipe for these quality smokes is simple yet produces excellent results. As with many other quality cigars, these fine sticks are rolled by hand and use choice Dominican tobacco to generate a satisfying, medium-bodied quality smoke. However, each cigar brand also makes use of a particular blend of tobacco and the fermented leaf chosen for C and C Gordos is a definite winner because they will probably be one of the best everyday smokes you have ever tried. Given the bargain prices for these fine sticks, who knows how long supplies will last so order a few C and C Gordo Samplers today.

Some cigars go beyond everyday smokes on account of the fine flavors they generate, their overall presentation, and select wrappers that are used. Baccarat Cigars fall into this category and are therefore nothing short of premium in nature. They demonstrate that distinction with choice Cuban-seed, carefully aged Honduran tobaccos and select flawless wrappers. True to their name, these are the smokes that you want to bring to classy casinos, for use at high stakes poker games, and for finishing off a fine day on the greens. However, as befits any top shelf cigar brand, we can't expect them to sell for cheap. Nevertheless, these excellent smokes are currently on sale at the Thompson Online Cigar Store for great low prices.
Since this sale is only going to be happening while supplies last, now is the time to order Baccarat Cigars. Buy a box of Baccarat Churchill Sweet Cigars to treat yourself to 25 fantastic, mild Connecticut wrapped smokes for less than $70. In addition to using premium tobaccos, these great smokes also have a mild, slightly sweetened cap to crown them with just the right touch of extra flavor. You could also go for a box of Platinum Baccarat Coronas for less than $50 and save on Baccarat Luchadores Lonsdales.

Superbowl season is one of the best times of the year. The winter holidays have finally ended, and since it's freezing cold outside, there's not a whole lot else to do but watch football on television. Since we are also at the tail end of football season, this is a great thing! The games are way more exciting than the start of the season and if your team in in it for the home stretch, you are sitting on cloud nine. Such a special time of the year requires special cigars for the biggest game of the year.
You don't want to smoke everyday cigars on a night that comes just once a year (nor for any of those semi-finals or big college games). Instead, look for 90 plus rated cigars at the Thompson Online Cigar Store and pick out a few choice smokes. Buy a box of Padron Anniversario 1964 Exclusivo Maduro Robustos and you will be ready to celebrate any game of the year. These ultra fine cigars are fit for the best of occasions with choice tobacco and a select wrapper that earned them an excellent rating of 94. If a box of those great smokes is a bit too much for the budget, you can always spend less on singles of premium cigars like the award winning 96 rated Flor de Antillas Toro Sun Grown cigar.

The Thompson online cigar store is a fantastic place for finding great deals on cigars, the best prices on everyday smokes, and wonderful cigar samplers. In fact, it's arguably the best place anywhere for finding samplers because so many are available for good prices. The cigar experts at Thompson also love to put together assortments of various cigars on a regular basis and that translates to more cigar samplers available for all of us aficionados to enjoy! To see the latest samplers in the online store, check out the page for new cigar samplers.
The Dominican Toro Collection Sampler offers up a wonderful assortment of 20 Dominican smokes, some with Maduro wrappers and others rolled in fine natural leaf. Get this sampler when the humidor needs an infusion of cigars that hail from the excellent tobacco farms of the Dominican Republic.
Another of many great samplers is the Victor Sinclair Ten Sampler Gordito. Like the name of this sampler says, it comes replete with ten wonderfully fat and delicious cigars. Each of these premium Gorditos is the creation of master cigar maker Jose Dominguez. They display the same fine character of other smokes made by the cigar expert behind Victor Sinclair Cigars.

The best cigar deals aren't the ones that sell smokes for the lowest prices. They happen to be the deals and sales that sell quality cigars for a very good price. For example, when you buy Vista de Cuba cigars at the Thompson Online Cigar Store, you get nothing short of a fantastic deal on high quality cigars. How can you trust that Vista de Cubas are top shelf smokes? How about the fact that they were created by the same cigar experts behind the 90 plus rated Aging Room and Swag cigar brands!
Yes, Vista de Cubas are made by Oliveros and show it by generating a top shelf, very fine cigar smoking experience. Choice long filler Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos are used in conjunction with a Dominican binder and excellent wrappers to conjure up a mild to medium-bodied tobacco treasure. That's part of the reason why buying a box of these sticks is such a good deal. The other part is related to the low price paid for a box of these fine smokes. For a limited time, 20 count boxes of Cuba de Vista Cigars are selling for less than $40 and 20 count boxes of premium Churchills are going for less than $50. Compare that to original pricing of $110 and $116 and we have an excellent deal on fine cigars.

We all want to spend less on cigars but none of us want to make any sacrifices on quality. That' the conundrum of being an aficionado who has a monthly cigar budget but there are ways to make that key combination happen. Shop for cigars at the Thompson Online Cigar Store (and you are going to find plenty of deals and sales) but if you really want premium cigars for low prices, check out the page with Factory Overruns. This is where you will find page after page of quality cigars for much lower prices than sticks of the same brand and series that get a cigar band and make it into a cigar box.
The last step of the cigar manufacturing process involves one final bit of quality control. If a cigar has certain wrapper flaws or just doesn't pass inspection for some other small reason, it is excluded from the cigar box even though it's made from the same high quality tobacco blends and has the same delicious wrapper. Those sticks are the factory overruns and much to the fortune of aficionados on a budget, they are sold as cigar bundles for a fraction of what they would cost if they had made it into a cigar box. This is an excellent way to buy Rocky Patel Cigars, Gurkha Cigars, wonderful Cusano Cigars, and other premium brands for low prices.

As aficionados, we have to know where the best places are for buying cigars. That place has to have enough cigar brands to meet every taste, occasion, and budget, and should also be capable of providing excellent advice and service. Ideally, it should also be open at all times of the day and offer a variety of cigar deals. If all of the above sounds too good to be true for a brick and mortar cigar store, you are right. Few if any cigar shops can meet such standards but there is at least one online cigar store that makes good on all of the above and more.
That place is the Thompson Online Cigar Store and it's also where you need to go if you want to enjoy free shipping on fine cigars. Most of the top shelf, premium cigars offered by Thompson ship for free. This includes such superb smokes as the 94 rated Padron 1964 Aniversario Torpedo Maduro, and the fantastic Flor de las Antillas Sun Grown Toro (the 2012 cigar of the year) among other excellent additions to the humidor. To see the other fine smokes that get shipped straight to your door at no extra cost, check out the Thompson Cigars With Free Shipping page.

Whether it's the holiday season or other times of the year, it's important to take time to sit back and enjoy a few choice Connecticut cigars. The Connecticut wrapper lends a wonderful, silky smooth experience to a cigar, especially so for mild smokes that work very well as after breakfast cigars, or sticks to accompany a mid-morning walk on the greens. A fine Connecticut is also versatile because it can add a smooth touch to parties during the holiday season, makes for a fine smoke while enjoying the sights and sounds of a tropical beach, and is probably the best way to read the morning paper.
With the accolades of Connecticut wrapped cigars in mind, the Avo Classic Intermezzo Connecticut Robusto Holiday Collection is a fine gift to get and give to any aficionado friend. This premium sampling of Connecticut Robustos includes four absolutely flawless Avo XO Intermezzo Cigars that demonstrate the importance of stocking the humidor with premium, Connecticut-wrapped sticks. Each of the fine cigars in this premium gift uses a choice blend of top shelf Dominican tobaccos and a select, very smooth Connecticut wrapper to generate a wonderful, medium-bodied smoking experience. These cigars are big on rich flavors without sacrificing the smooth, sumptuous sensations that come from using a choice Connecticut wrapper.

Gifts for the aficionado come in many shapes, sizes, and prices. Some samplers of premium cigars cost two or three times as much as samplers of lesser known brands and the same can be said of cigar lighters, and other cigar accessories. Although higher quality items tend to cost more, shop at the right place and you can still find great deals on quality cigars even though they cost less. One such deal also makes an excellent gift, especially for people just getting started with cigars.
That fine cigar deal and gift is the Classic Cherrywood VI Combo. Since this nice combo was originally priced at $107 and presently sells for less than $40, it's one of the better cigar combo deals at the Thompson online cigar store, especially when you see what you get for that low price! The lucky buyer of this combo gets a beautiful Cherrywood humidor that uses a quality humidification system and has Spanish Cedar linings and dividers. No humidor should ever be empty and that's why this combo also comes with 20 Hacienda Rio Churchill Connecticut cigars. A Noah Edge cigar lighter is also included so you can sample one of those Churchills as soon as this combo is delivered to your door.

Some of us are lucky enough to have a cigar budget that allows for the monthly purchase of multiple boxes of Cohibas, Macanudos, limited edition Rocky Patels, and other top shelf cigars. While we all strive to be in that fortunate position, most of us have to be a bit more careful about what we pay for smokes. To get as many quality sticks as possible for a modest cigar buying budget, we spend a fair amount of time searching for sales and finding true bargains on premium cigars. However, once we discover the Thompson online cigar store, we don't usually shop anywhere else because there are just too many cigar deals to pick from.
If you really want to take the bargain buying a step further, though, check out the Thompson Cigar Gifts for a Bargain Buyer page. Once you do, it won't take long to realize that this is a veritable bargain gold mine for cigars. For example, there aren't too many places where you can get 20 Churchills for less than $30 or a high quality, beautiful Bally 100 count humidor for less than $60. bargain deals on this page change all of the time so check it every day to find the best savings on cigars.

Once you start buying cigars on a regular basis, you quickly learn to always be on the lookout for cigar deals. We get that way because it's all too easy to come across fine cigars at local shops, in airports, and in fine restaurants that cost an arm and a leg. After paying top dollar for a couple of those sticks, we know that there has to be a cheaper way to enjoy premium cigars so we start looking into online sites and talking to aficionado friends to see where they buy their cigars. Those conversations and preliminary searches bring many of us to the Thompson Online Cigar Store and after seeing many of the deals on the site, we rarely shop for cigars anywhere else.
There are just too many ways to buy high rated cigars for good prices as well as deals to match every budget. For example, the following are three such deals for less than $50:
Rocky Patel vs. PDR 1878: This fine dozen of premium cigars normally costs more than $80. However, for a limited time, you can buy this wonderful sampler for less than $50.
829 Maduro Torpedo Cigars: This deal makes it possible to buy 40 delicious Maduros for less than $50. This is a great way to get cigars for a party!
The Ultimate Powerhouse 16 Cigar Sampler: For less than $50, this fine selection of cigars puts 2 each of 8 different fine cigar brands into your humidor.

The modern online cigar store has made it much easier to find great deals on cigars. Instead of heading to a tobacco shop and paying more for fewer choices of cigars, a good online store can provide hundreds of cigar opportunities. There are also several ways to save at an online store, including something called the cigar auction. If you have yet to partake in this means of finding deals on cigars, the following trio of reasons show why it's worth it to check the Thompson cigar auction every day of the week:
Auctions can equal fantastic deals: While you don't always find amazing discounts with the auction, that's typical when bids are involved. However, if you partake in enough auctions, you will eventually win some that provide you with cigars for fantastic discounts.
Auction items vary: The Thompson auction doesn't just include a few items now and then. There is a constant flow of items ranging from cigar accessories to a wide variety of cigars. Keep checking to have a chance at deals on your favorite cigar brands.
Try new cigars: The auction also makes it easy to try new cigars for a bargain. If you see something you have never tried before, it's worth it to make a bid. You might win and get a chance at trying a different brand of cigars for a great low price.

Once Halloween ends, it's time to start thinking about winter holiday gifts. Whether you like shopping for holiday gifts or not, if you have family or friends, it can't be avoided. Fortunately, if you have to go shopping for a fellow aficionado (or feel like buying a nice little gift for yourself), the Thompson Online Cigar Store has lots of excellent options. While you could just buy that lucky person a box of wonderful, quality cigars, items that combine great cigars with something else are very suitable for both veteran aficionados and people who have never tried a cigar.
One such fine gift item is the Romeo and Julieta Habana Reserve Toro Natural Cigars with Tire Gauge. Buy this gift set and the happy recipient will get the chance to enjoy five high quality Romeo and Julieta Toro Naturals. Given the excellent, medium to full bodied cigar experience that comes from drawing on these fine smokes, that would be a fine gift on its own. However, in addition to enjoying those excellent cigars, the recipient also gets a quality tire pressure gauge. This isn't a simple metal gauge either but a sleek and accurate digital tire pressure gauge that's easy to use and tells you exactly how much air is in the tires of your vehicle.
Enjoy this and other fine cigar gift items from Thompson Cigar today.

Although we would all love to enjoy three ultra premium cigars a day, that luxury just doesn't fit into most of our cigar budgets. We do buy premium smokes now and then but have to be careful about how we spend money on cigars if we want to enjoy a few sticks every day of the week. That is possible no matter what your cigar budget may be but you have to be careful about the everyday cigars you choose to enjoy. However, even with a minimal cigar budget, it's still possible to enjoy everyday sticks and cigars of a much higher caliber once or twice a month. The way to make that happen is twofold and includes (1) shopping for cigars at the Thompson online cigar store, and (2) planning monthly expenses when you buy cigars online.
The Thompson Cigar online store makes it easy to spend less on cigars because there are so many ways to save money. Buy bundles of quality sticks and you can find great deals on everyday smokes. Buy factory overruns and you get the chance to enjoy premium sticks by Rocky Patel and other top shelf brands for a fraction of the price. Check the sale page, buy a single or two of 90 plus rated cigars, and spend some time at the cigar auction and it becomes easy to plan all of your cigar expenses for the month without sacrificing your supply of everyday cigars and chance to enjoy a couple of quality cigars each month.

Cigars have a much longer history than most people realize. Native Americans were fermenting and enjoying tobacco for hundreds if not thousands of years before the arrival of Columbus and at least one Mayan image dating back to the 13th century shows someone smoking what appears to be a cigar. The Spaniards discovered the beauty of fermented tobacco shortly after colonizing the Americas and cigars eventually spread to Europe and elsewhere. Although little information is known about the cigar shop from before the 18th century, we do know that tobacconists were selling cigars in many parts of Europe and the Americas by the 1820s. At that time, since a high percentage of the populace was illiterate, a statue of a wooden Native American was used to denote the location of a cigar shop. This emblem was used because tobacco played such an important, sacred role in native cultures.
Those early tobacco shops resembled the ones that graced many small American towns and cities up to the 1970s and 80s. The culture was also similar and involved very knowledgeable tobacconists who worked closely with customers to find the best cigars for their needs. Although customers could and did ask for specific brands of cigars, the owner of the cigar store was also expected to be capable of recommending a good cigar for the morning, everyday smokes, and high quality cigars for special occasions. Cigar smoking began to decline in popularity during the 1970s and 1980s along with a similar decline in traditional cigar shops. Once the Internet happened, fewer brick and mortar cigar stores became available as the popularity of the online cigar store grew. Although one can still find brick and mortar tobacco shops here and there, the online store has more or less taken over because a good online cigar store provides a wider variety of product for low prices as well as expert tobacconists ready and eager to recommend a good cigar.

There is more than one way to buy cigars but not every one of those ways will save you money or provide you with quality brands. For example, head to the nearest brick and mortar store and they may or may not have the types of cigars you prefer, nor very many cigars available for a discount. One of the reasons why those brick and mortar stores aren't able to offer as much in terms of variety and low prices is because they don't carry as much merchandise as larger online distributors that deal with wholesale cigars.
An online cigar store that offers a huge variety of cigar brands and deals in wholesale cigars is almost always going to sell all of those cigars for lower prices than brick and mortar stores. An online distributor like Thompson Cigar can offer so many deals on cigars because Thompson gets cigars directly from the cigar makers (in addition to offering several exclusive Thompson brands) and deals with large numbers of smokes. This translates to lower prices for aficionados who shop at the Thompson online cigar store and also partly explains why Thompson can offer dozens of truly amazing cigar deals in cigar auctions and on the sale page every day of the week. It's hard to think of a better benefit that comes from buying wholesale cigars than consistent, excellent low prices although the huge variety of smokes is pretty nice too!

Cigars that sell for a discount don't always end up being the best cigars in your humidor. Many of us have purchased wholesale cigars that ended up generating a less than ideal smoking experience. Although we might have used them for everyday smokes or gave them away, we didn't exactly reach for those cheap sticks when we wanted to smoke a quality cigar. That experience has kept many of us from buying other discount smokes but the smartest aficionados keep on buying discount cigars and enjoy quality sticks for low prices with every purchase. Here are a few hints on how they make that happen:
Shop for cigars at a trusted, well established online cigar store: Buy cigars from an online store like Thompson Cigar and not only can you trust what is said, but there's also a much better chance of finding a variety of quality sticks for low prices. Search the Thompson Cigar sale page and you might find great cigar deals on sticks like the Victor Sinclair 55 Series Churchill Sampler.
Shop at the Thompson Cigar Outlet: This is an excellent way of finding great discounts on many types of cigars, including such deals as a Vintage Especiale Twelve Sampler for less than $25.
Cigar auction: Partake in the cigar auctions held by Thompson Cigar and you have a very good chance of getting quality cigars and accessories for excellent low prices.

There are two main places for buying cigars but one of them offers far better deals on a consistent basis than the other. That one place to shop for cigars, cigar accessories, and other tobacco-related items is the online cigar store. Buy cigars at the right online store and you can be sure to find great savings on many types of cigars every day of the week. However, you also have to know where to look for the best cigar deals. These are a few surefire ways to always save on cigars every time you shop for them:
Only buy cigars from a well known, online cigar store that has been in the business for a while: A cigar distributor that has been around for nearly 100 years is going to be a much more reliable place to shop for smokes than fly by night sites or ones that have little experience with cigars. The Thompson online store demonstrates deep connections and experience with the cigar industry by always offering discounts on hundreds of smokes, offering great deals on exclusive cigar brands, and wonderful prices on a huge variety of smokes.
Check the Thompson Cigar sale page: Click on the Thompson Cigar sale page and you will find far more than cigars on sale. There are also pages for closeout deals, outlet cigars, cigar deals, and other ways to save on premium smokes.

Once you start smoking cigars, it doesn't take long to also start a personal search for the best deals on everyday smokes and the very best in premium cigars. We all start this search because we quickly realize that there is a vast difference between regular cigars and top rated premium sticks. As soon as you find the best online cigar store, you also discover the best place to look for cigars of all types and can start the search in earnest. Aficionados who try several cigar samplers and cigar bundles don't usually take too long to pick out a solid, satisfying everyday smoke. Finding the best in cigars doesn't take long either once you know where to look (try the page with 90 rated cigars). One of the best of those very fine cigars is the La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amore and for aficionados who enjoy a full-bodied smoke, it might end up being the very best cigar in the humidor.
This impressive cigar is up there at the top of the very best in cigars because it earned a rating of 95 from Cigar Aficionado and was named one of the best cigars for 2011. This Belicoso Maduro earns those major ratings with small batch fantastic Nicaraguan tobaccos that are rolled in a high quality Cuban seed wrapper. The end result is a full-bodied masterpiece that entertains with hints of nuts and woody flavors. Buy a box of these supremely good cigars for the best of occasions.
