Cigar samplers are always fun to buy. Even though you know which sticks are going to arrive in the sampler, there's always a few that you have never tried. It's fun to compare those with our favorite everyday sticks and well known, premium cigars. It's also a good feeling to know that the humidor is going to receive a nice variety of sticks. Some are different sizes, come from different cigar makers, and showcase different types of wrappers. However, another nice thing about samplers is related to their price. Buy a sampler and you typically end up spending a lot less on premium smokes. It gives you a chance to try some top shelf sticks without breaking the cigar budget while other samplers are just fine cigar deals in every sense.
To find the best deals on samplers, visit the Value Cigar Samplers page. This is where you will find several excellent assortments of cigars for very good prices. For example, recently, the World Class 20 Sampler has been on sale for less than $30. That's four brands of 20 fine cigars for less than half of the regular price. The same can be said of the Victor Sinclair Super Selection 15 Cigar Sampler. Buy that assortment and pay less than a third of the regular price for premium Victor Sinclair smokes.

Have you ever tried Paso Doble Connecticut Robustos? If so, then you already know why it's important to keep the humidor stocked with these fine smokes. Paso Dobles are mild to medium bodied cigars that are rolled in a smooth Connecticut wrapper and combine both Dominican and Costa Rican tobaccos to produce a fine, mild and wonderful smoking experience. Much of that mild, easy-going flavor comes from the Costa Rican tobaccos that go into this cigar. If you have ever tried premium Costa Rican coffee, the tobacco shows somewhat similar, very smooth flavors. The full package makes for an excellent everyday smoke and this is one of the best reasons to buy 100 Paso Doble Connecticut Robustos.
Another time for buying a bunch of these fine, mild smokes is when you are throwing a fair sized party for employees or friends. The low price for these smokes combined with their easy going flavors makes them an excellent choice for rookie aficionados and folks who have yet to experience a good cigar. It goes without saying, then, that Paso Dobles are also ideal cigars to bring to a wedding. If a good friend or family member is getting ready to tie the knot, ask them if they would like guests to help celebrate the event with good cigars and if they say yes, (they probably will), buy 100 Paso Dobles for less than $90.

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.

Those of us who enjoy smoking cigars don't just partake in the experience because we enjoy fine, fermented tobacco. We also smoke cigars because we relish the experience of testing and tasting the subtle difference in flavors that come from different types of tobacco and wrappers. We enjoy inspecting cigars and noting the quality of their construction, and focusing on the difference between the start, sweet spot, and end of the cigar. These are a few of the reasons why it's important to enjoy cigars the right way and that procedure includes:
Choosing the best cigar for the moment: Pick a mild stick for the morning, medium-bodied smoke for the afternoon, and full-bodied cigar for the evening. It might be an everyday smoke or premium cigars for special situations.
Inspecting and cutting the cigar: After checking and appreciating the construction of the stick in question, carefully snip off the tip with a quality cigar cutter. It's important to use cigar cutters and not a knife or scissors because the cutter results in the type of good, even cut necessary for properly enjoying the cigar.
Lighting and smoking it: Use proper cigar lighters to evenly light the end of the stick and then casually smoke it with enough time to savor the fine flavors.

The winter is always a tough time of the year. In most parts of the country, golf is a distant memory, if you want to go fishing you have to know how to cut a hole in the ice, and it can be a challenge to stay warm during those daily walks in the park. Not to mention, the cold, dry weather can also pose a threat to your cigar collection. However, even if you don't take a vacation to a warmer clime, winter can still be a good time to enjoy cigars.
For example, a great top shelf smoke seems to be even better when you can sit back in a warm den and enjoy that fine tobacco as the snow and ice coat the backyard. It's also a great time of the year to enjoy some fine cigars with friends while watching the Super Bowl and basketball games. It's a time to treat yourself to fine cigars and two of the best are the Aroma de Cuba Mi Amore Box Pressed Maduro Belicoso, and the H Upmann 1844 Reserve Belicoso Natural. Both of these sticks are major, top shelf smokes that have earned respective ratings of 95 and 93. The medium to full body and excellent flavors of these premium smokes will brighten even the darkest, coldest days of winter.

Oliva Cigars are one of those premium brands that we strive to have in the humidor. The reliable, premium nature of Olivas can always be counted on for a top shelf smoking experience. The cigar masters at Oliva came up with the wonderful Nub, and many other series of smokes that demonstrate their expertise and pride when it comes to cigars. With that in mind, it's always a good day when you can find Olivas for free! Not that Thompson Cigar is giving them away but then again, they sort of are because when you buy boxes of just about any Oliva Cigar from Thompson, you also get a free Oliva ten pack sampler!
For example, buy a box of wonderful Magna Carta Toro Habanos and you get a very fine sampling of Oliva sticks. Since that box of fine cigars is already sold for a discount, the 10 extra Oliva cigars turn it into a pretty good cigar deal. Not to mention, those fine Magna Cartas are also exclusively available from Thompson Cigar.
Enjoy those Magna Carta cigars when you feel like experiencing an excellent, medium-bodied Nicaraguan puro but when the situation calls for a full-bodied smoke, you can't go wrong with a 24 count box of Oliva Habano Rothschild Nubs, especially because it also includes that fine cigar sampler at no extra cost!

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.

It's always a good day when you can relax with quality cigars after a delicious lunch or excellent dinner. On such occasions, you don't want to smoke the same mild mannered Connecticut as you did during a morning of golf or after going for a morning walk. The afternoons and evenings call for fuller-bodied cigars that match the palette and one of the best smokes for the latter half of the day is a fine, robust Toro. Those fat sticks seem to be especially satisfying after a long day of work or travel and when they incorporate high quality tobacco, they are absolute, end of the day treasures.
One of the finest samplers of Toro treasures is the Montecristo Connoisseur Edition. This very fine assortment of cigars includes 8 big gauge, fantastic Toros made from limited small batch tobaccos. Each one has a medium to full body and is a beautiful, carefully crafted stick that could easily be reserved for special events. Buy this premium sampler and you get 2 each of four different boutique sticks that are crafted from choice Dominican tobaccos. Each is also named after different American cities or states to reflect their character. Sample the Texas Toro, light up a Las Vegas Toro during an evening at the casino, and compare the fine flavors of the New York and Chicago Montecristo Toro Cigars.
Enjoy the fine flavors of the Montecristo Connoisseur Edition Sampler and great deals on hundreds of quality smokes at Thompson Cigar today.

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.

We smoke cigars for a number of reasons but it all comes back to enjoying the good life. When we light that choice Connecticut cigar after a fine morning of golf, it's the perfect way to finish off a walk on the greens. When we sit back and enjoy a wonderful Maduro at the end of a great gourmet dinner, we do so to round out the dining experience in the best possible way. This is also why so many people smoke a fine cigar at special events and celebrations. They represent some of the best that life has to offer but you don't have to wait for a special occasion to treat yourself to a fine cigar.
All aficionados should treat themselves to a great smoke now and then no matter what the occasion may be. For example, if you happen to be traveling for business or leisure, bring one or two Romeo and Julieta Corona Cigar Samplers to make the trip that much more enjoyable. Each of the four sticks in this sampler are premium, top shelf cigars with delicious wrappers. They include the wonderful 1875, the elegant Reserva Real, the wonderfully smooth Vintage Connecticut, and the lip smacking Vintage Maduro. Each stick is a real treat and suitable for times when you feel like enjoying an excellent, cigar smoking experience.

Giving and receiving gifts is a big part of the winter holiday season. However, there are some people who deserve gifts at every time of the year. Firefighters are one of those special people. Time and time again, they risk their lives to save the lives of others and do their best to save homes from terrible, tragic fires. Although they just say that it's part of the job and don't usually ask for any recognition, it's always nice to remember the active and volunteer firefighters who work in our communities. One of the easiest ways to thank those heroes is with quality cigars and other cigar gifts.
Some firefighters are aficionados while others have yet to experience the fine flavors of quality tobacco but all of them will appreciate receiving cigar samplers like the Ultimate 90 Plus.

When we shop for cigars, we may see descriptions of the tobacco used for filler, the country of origin for the binder, and information about the wrapper. Typically, the name of the country where the wrapper was grown is given along with the type of wrapper used, and if it was grown in the shade or in direct sunlight. Many wrappers come from plants that are carefully cultivated in the shade because this process results in finer, more delicate leaves with fewer veins. It's easier to let a tobacco plant grow out in the open but the strong rays of the tropical sun results in leaves that are tougher and have more veins.
Nevertheless, there are also ways to carefully cultivate leaves used for wrappers that are grown in completely unshaded conditions. It's a difficult process but creates sun-grown leaves that are prized for the sweet flavors they add to a cigar. Two samplers that showcase the beauty and premium smoking experience of choice sungrown wrappers are the Perdomo 20th Anniversary Sampler, and the Ashton VSG Sungrown Sampler. Both of these samplers host prize, medium and full-bodied sticks that feature select, premium long filler tobaccos, and exclusive sungrown wrappers. All are fine cigars indeed and fit for the most special of occasions.
These top shelf cigar samplers make excellent gifts for any aficionado. Find them and low prices for hundreds of premium cigars at Thompson Cigar today.

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.

Macanudos. For any aficionado who has experienced these classic cigars, the brand name alone invokes fine memories of superb tobaccos, very smooth smokes, and the reason why we look forward to enjoying Macanudos on every occasion. These cigars are one of the most famous of the classic, premium smokes and as befits their distinguished status, they aren't exactly available for bargain basement prices. Although the premium experience of a Macanudo is worth the higher cost, it's still very nice to pay less for these high quality cigars whenever the opportunity presents itself.
One such opportunity is found with the Macanudo Toro Gordo Collection with Lighter combo. For less than $40, this premium gift comes with 6 genuine Macanudo cigars and a fine double torch cigar lighter. Since there are three different types of Macanudos, this combo also makes for a fine little cigar sampler. Enjoy the Macanudo Cafe as a premium after breakfast smoke or when you feel like sampling fantastic double aged Dominican long filler tobacco bound with a San Andres Valley binder and rolled in an excellent Connecticut wrapper. Save the Macanudo Maduro for a fine afternoon smoke, and the excellent Cru Royale for the most special of occasions.

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!

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.
