How to Smoke a Cigar

Smoking a cigar should be an enjoyable experience every time. Whether you prefer one in the morning, afternoon, evening, or have some special cigar smoking ritual, here are some basic tips you should consider before firing up your next cigar!


The Summer Cigar Sampler

Summer is approaching and that can only mean one thing....summer cookouts!  I can't think of a better way to get together with my buddies and the family other than by sitting out on the porch smoking a quality cigar.  True aficionados bring cigars to share to the party, although sometimes it can be difficult to know which cigars to bring when everyone has their own preference.  That is why the 90 Plus Rated Deluxe Sampler is always a great choice!  You can bring an assortment of cigars that have a broad range of flavors and will surely be a crowd pleaser.  They're easy to light and even nicer to smoke.  Be the talk at all of the parties by bringing the gift that keeps on giving!

It's not often you can save on BIG NAME cigars – cigars that others will envy as you smoke them! The Highly Rated Sampler contains 2 C.A.O. Brazilia, 2 C.A.O. Criollo and 2 C.A.O. Gold… plus 2 Vintage 1990, 2 Vintage 1992, and 2 Sungrown by Rocky Patel. These glorious cigars will give you hours of smoking pleasure.  It's no wonder people are talking about this sampler!

Cheap Phillies Cigars

Phillies Cigars are a sweet treat when you're craving a flavored cigar. Coming in a variety of shapes, sizes and wrappers, these little blunts pack a big punch at a small price. Produced in Puerto Rico, Phillies cigars feature tobacco filler from the Dominican Republic and Honduras for the perfectly mild-bodied taste.

"The Phillie Strawberry Blunts are one of my favorite cheapie smokes, but are getting pretty pricey if you pay-at-the-pump. Finding that Thompson Cigar had them in Boxes online for about 1/2 the price was a huge bonus. I bought a box for me - enjoyed them - and then turned around and bought a box for my uncle - perfect gift!"

Phillies cigars are advertised for the "value-conscious smoker" and while I believe this to be true, I think that only accounts for half the Phillies smokers out there. The reality is that every cigar brand has a demographic and Phillies is dominated by a younger, hipper group. How many cigar smokers out there start off with a Cohiba or Ashton cigar? Every cigar smoker starts off somewhere and for many that somewhere was a gas station Phillie or Swisher Sweet. Either way, these little cigars pack a lot of flavor at a cheap price, sure to keep 
you and your wallet happy.

The Brown Bag Sampler - Worth The Mystery

Brown Bag Sampler

... I know what you're thinking. Believe me, I was not on the Brown Bag Sampler's side when the idea was in it's infancy. I thought to myself, this is essentially like going into your local shop, picking up an unknown box off the counter and buying it - only sure of one thing - cigars will be inside. Well - my opinion was shot down and to my surprise the Brown Bag Sampler is flying off the shelves - we literally make up new samplers every week to stay in stock. That's the beauty of it - we don't have to worry about what's in stock because its genuinely completely random. Sometimes you'll get a few Rocky Patels, CAO or Ghurkas in there - other times you might get a few Don Lugo's or Cubanacan - it's totally random (in a good way).

Don't be afraid to venture into the unknown on this one. The Brown Bag Sampler is totally worth the mystery and money. AND - to make you a believer I'm going to open up one of these cigar samplers and tell you what's inside, so here goes...

- 2 Flor De Dominguez
- 2 Cubanacan
- 4 Reyes Family Vintage
- 6 Victor Sinclair
- 7 Exclusive Brands
- 2 CAO
- 7 Mystery Cigars (I have to leave some mystery!!)

So - I proved it to you -  When you purchase the Brown Bag Sampler, you will be getting thirty great cigars!


Save Money On Top Brands - Shop Our Cigar Auction!

It's probably not a huge surprise that I am a giant fan of cigars; all cigars, I try my hardest not to discriminate (although Rocky Patel will always have a very special place in my heart!). If you asked my colleagues when I started smoking, they would probably guess that I started smoking when I started here at Thompson Cigar, however how wrong they are! I started smoking a little over 10 years ago (working here for three) so I've been buying cigars for quite some time. With all of that said, I know what it's like to crave a great cigar but not the high price tags. This is where the Thompson Cigar Auction comes into play, saving you boatloads of cash.

Dad is sure to love A Cigar Sampler of the Month Club!

Father's Day is coming up and I always find myself panicking a little. What am I going to get my Dad for Father's Day that he doesn't already have AND that I can afford! (Anyone know where I can get a good deal on a Ferrari?) I'm sure it comes as no surprise that every year I get my Dad a great Cigar Sampler; it's one of the perks of working for a cigar company! And every year he gets excited, acts surprised and the whole process reminds him that indeed, he does have a favorite kid. This year I've decided that I'm going to 'up the ante' (just in case my sister was thinking of trying to out do me...) by getting good ol' Dad not just one cigar sampler but six cigar samplers! That's right, I signed my Dad up for a Cigar of the Month Club; quite possibly every cigar smoking man's dream! Each monthly package will be delivered with an informative newsletter. This newsletter will not only explain the cigars in great depth, but also offer great cigar advice, terminology and discounted products. And best of all, FREE SHIPPING on all shipments plus Dad will get a great selection of the top brands like Cohiba, Arturo Fuente, Gurkha, CAO cigars, Punch and so many more!

Obviously this is a great gift because its on auto-pilot. Thompson Cigar will ship the samplers for FREE and do everything to get it out for Dad (or whoever, it makes a great gift for any cigar smoker) for Father's Day. If you're on a stricter budget and want to send someone the Cigar of the Month Club for 2 months, 3 months, 5 months, whatever, that's fine because they have every possibility you could want that fits every budget. Check it out!


Have A Good Time Rolling Your Own Cigars!

Do you find that some cigars aren't flavored enough? Do you ever wish you could roll your own cigars? Well here's a great option for those of you out there! Good Times Flat Wraps are flavored tobacco wraps made for the cigar smoker who wants to spice it up. Good Times Flat Wraps are blended from select tobacco ingredients, come in a wide variety of exciting flavors like Mango-Licious, Sour Apple, Grape, Blueberry, Strawberry-Kiwi, Passion, or Natural, and come packaged in 30 guaranteed-fresh sleeves each containing two wraps or 60 total wraps.

The great thing about rolling your own cigars is you can decide the ring gauge and flavor. If you want a 15 minute smoke, roll a little cigar; if you want a 40 minute smoke, roll a larger cigar, the option is entirely yours.

The Best Humidifier Around!

The La Veil DCH-200 Humidifier is a staff favorite here at Thomspon Cigar! Designed for humidors up to 300 count, this system easily attaches to the inside lid, the walls, or anywhere there is room inside the humidor.  This is easily one of the most ingenious humidifiers ever created for desktop humidors becase unlike others, this electronic humidifier doesn’t come with any wires that can compromise the integrity of a humidor and get in the way! With its unique rechargeable cell-phone battery that is built right into the unit, this humidifier was designed to last up to months before it will tell you that it needs a recharge.  When it is time to recharge, just take the device and plug it in for just a couple hours, then you are set for months before another charge. If that's not easy enough, there's more! The unit is easily removed to refill the humidification device, which is removed, re-soaked in distilled water, and placed back in the unit.  The unit also includes a precise electronic hydrometer so you know exactly what the RH (relative humidity) is at all times.

Cigar humidors can sometimes require a lot of maintenance, but now with this spectacular system, cigars (and cigar lovers) can rest with the reassurance that they are in the perfect shape possible with one of the best and most convenient humidifiers on the market.
