Essential Cigar Accessories
Cigars have long been both a pastime activity and a way to celebrate. Traditionally, they have been given away at the birth of a child and at weddings. But there are also many people who regularly consume cigars for the pure enjoyment of them. Many of our most loyal customers are cigar aficionados who love everything about cigar smoking -- from the history and culture to the variety of flavors and styles. And, of course, the right accessories to make your cigar smoking sessions as pleasurable as possible.
For cigar smokers, cigar accessories are as essential as the cigars themselves. These are just a few of the basic cigar accessories you should own.
A cigar humidor is key to keeping cigars fresh. They do this by controlling the humidity of your cigars when stored inside. Humidors come in various sizes, from a small portable box to the size of a cabinet. For the serious connoisseur, there are even room size walk-in humidors like those you see in cigar shops.
Considered the must-have item for even casual cigar smokers, a cutter is the most basic of accessories, but crucial for the best cigar experience. These cutters are used to snip the closed end of the cigar to allow smoke to flow properly into the mouth of the smoker, while also releasing the flavors and aromas of the cigar.
There are many types of cutters, from those you can clip on a keychain to those that sit on a tabletop. Some people will use scissors or a knife to cut the tip, but a cutter is ideal for precision and for getting an even burn.
An ashtray is important to use not just for ashes, but also to keep the cigar in a safe place when you’re not smoking. Be sure to purchase an ashtray specifically made for cigars and not cigarettes to be sure the cigar will fit neatly into the rest.
Papers (or wraps) are what you use to roll your own cigars. Cigar papers can also be used as a way to add flavor such as grape or blueberry to a cigar.
When we plan on enjoying our cigars away from home, a cigar tube is ideal for transporting one or two. The cylindrical tubes help protect your fine cigars from being crushed or becoming damp and help to keep them fresh. Some cigar tubes even offer humidor features, great for longer trips.
Cigar lighters fueled by butane are a small but effective way to enhance a cigar. Avoid using lighter fluid which can produce a negative effect on the cigar’s taste. A wooden match is also an acceptable alternative to a lighter, but isn’t as convenient to use.
