Chicago's The Clayton
July 2017

Over my years of being the biggest and best cigar merchant in the UK, I've travelled the world and had the opportunity to visit many different cigar bars and shops, some of them have particularly stood out. The Clayton is one of those places; ultra cool and super sophisticated with an extremely friendly atmosphere. I'm of course a member with my own locker crammed full of my favorite cigars, including Inca Secret Blend. I've even managed to host some pre-embargo tasting events there which have been extremely enjoyable! If you find yourself herfing in Chicago, make sure you visit The Clayton and enjoy a cigar in the super comfortable lounge.

Mitchell Orchant




Metro Chicago already has a number of high-end retail cigar shops and lounges, from history to contemporary. But an ambitious new offering, The Clayton, sets a new standard with old World roots, a sleek build-out, and highly personalised service.Putting European Ambiance and elegance into the American cigar experience takes vision, location, and detail. Embarking on a year-long tour around the globe, Guy Hancock and Clay Wilson visited shops in a number of countries to get a picture for the amenities and character in their lounge-to-be.

Good reasons to smoke a pipe
March 2017
Pipe smoking is an art that takes years of dedication and thought (you really need to know what you are smoking). The ritual of filling, lighting and smoking your pipe takes patience, don't worry you will eventually keep it lit... but it will take time.

Over a period of time, you will start to develop your own techniques and rituals, you will soon start to feel as if you created the art of pipe smoking yourself..

Now there are plenty of reasons why you should start smoking a pipe but I have listed the most important below.

The Budget – What it means for cigar smokers
March 2017
The increase in cigar tax equates to 5.9% plus VAT, this makes it approximately 7.2%. After the cigar manufacturers have added their annual increase we unfortunately expect that the increase will be more like 10%.

We will hold our prices whilst stocks last, as well as endeavour to offer you the biggest and best range at the lowest possible prices, but we do advise topping up your humidors now at pre increase prices. As ever we also guarantee best prices in the UK and if we get it wrong we will always gladly price match.

Humidors...because cigars need a home too
February 2017
Cigars are precious little items of joy, well to us anyway. They have to be kept at the correct temperature and humidity to keep them fresh and ready for you to smoke. Cigars can start to dry out if left too long, so why not ensure they are kept in optimum conditions by investing in a humidor.

Deciding which humidor would best suit you often comes down to budget.. Most people think of pound signs when making the decision to purchase a humidor but you may be pleasantly surprised! Here at C.Gars we have humidors for every budget.

The Art of Pipe Smoking
February 2017
Pipe smoking is the practice of tasting (or, more uncommonly, inhaling) the smoke, produced by burning a substance, most commonly tobacco, in a pipe. It is the oldest traditional form of smoking.

A number of Native American cultures have pipe-smoking traditions, which have been part of their cultures since long before the arrival of the Europeans. Tobacco is often smoked, generally for ceremonial purposes, though other mixtures of sacred herbs are also common.

TOP RATED WHISKY - BENROMACH 10 YEAR OLD
February 2017
Benromach has been picked as one of the 10 best Scotch whiskies (as chosen by the experts) interviewed by Sean Murphy January 18, 2017. The Scotsman asked some whisky experts from across Scotland (and beyond) to help them pick ten of the best (reasonably priced) Scotch whiskies. Here’s what Blair Bowman said about Benromach

Benromach 10 Year Old (Region: Speyside, Style: all-rounder, Price: approx: £35)

Grab yourself a bottle of this beautiful whisky at the special price of £29.95 a bottle.

Chosen by Blair Bowman, whisky writer and founder of World Whisky Day:

“Well if I had to choose only one single malt to drink until the day I die I think I’d go for Benromach 10 year old. “It tastes exactly how you think a whisky should taste, totally balanced sweet and fruit flavours. At 43% Abv it gives it that extra bit of oomph and a juicy and chewy mouth feel. Delicious!”
Should you age your cigars? An article by James
January 2017
It is fairly well known in the cigar world that most premium, handmade cigars will improve with age. This is partly due to the natural oils in the cigar developing over time, as well as the flavours blending and mellowing. Knowing what to do when aging cigars yourself can be a real minefield.

Should you age your Cigars?

The first thing to remember is that cigars do not necessarily need aging, cigars are intended to taste great as soon as they hit the retailers' shelves, therefore every cigar you receive from us will be in prime smoking condition.Your cigars may have matured already, with Cuban cigars you can usually find out by checking the bottom of the box for the date code. Check out our huge range of aged and rare section or of course our huge range of limited edition Havanas.
