Summer is here and it’s time to hang out with friends and families in the backyard, on the balcony or somewhere out there in the wild blue yonder and smoke a premium cigar that’s going to mix well with friends, family and any holiday or special occasion. 

  • First, before we talk about some great premium cigar brands lets give you a quick overview of what to look for when you are buying a premium cigar: 
  • A local cigar club is a great place to start when you are thinking about buying a premium cigar. Most clubs have their own humidor and the size and type of humidor will vary greatly depending on the size of your club. Regardless of the size of the humidor ask club members about cigars they would recommend matched to your budget and tastes. 
  • Learn how to test cigar construction: roll a stick between your fingers, it should always feel consistent with no lumps, bumps or irregularities in the body of the cigar – it should also be smooth to the touch, with no rough edges. 
  • Know that every cigar should be stored properly before and after a purchase. Too much wetness or moisture will ruin a premium cigar faster than you can say “smoke” – and heat or too much sunlight will also destroy the quality of a premium cigar.
  • A word about price; you don’t need to spend $20-30 bucks to get a good quality premium cigar – you can spend as little as $3-5 per stick and get a smoke that’s going to taste great and go with just about any good meal.

Must Know Cigar Terms for every Consumer: Male or Female BTW

  • Everything starts with the “head” of a cigar: it’s always going to tell you if you have a good cigar in hand. This is the end you put in your mouth, it’s sealed and you will have to use a cigar cutter or guillotine to trim off the tip. Your teeth: don’t even think about it. You want to trim the head of the cigar properly or it may unravel in your hands. 
  • The “foot “is the side of the cigar you light using a good butane and never use a match or a lighter that’s not butane. As you may be tasting the match or the lighter fluid for some time as you smoke your stick. 
  • The “filler” refers to the actual tobacco that makes up the bulk of your cigar. It’s usually a dried and fermented tobacco. It’s a critical component to a good cigar. 
  • The “wrapper” is the external layer of your cigar, with a variation in color from light to dark and a great deal of the taste of your cigar comes from the cigar wrapper.

ACID Cigars are a top selling cigar here at Windy City Cigars for good reason. These hand made, Cuban seeded origin sticks are made with an aged Nicaraguan long filler tobacco that is then aged or “cured” for 3-6 months. They are a great starter cigar for the first time smoker and you can get them in a huge variety of tastes and blends.
