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.

Inca Secret Blend Reserva D'Oro Robusto Now Available!
January 2017


I’m delighted to introduce my Inca Secret Blend Reserva D’Oro Robusto in strictly limited quantity

As there are only 5000 sticks available I am limiting customer orders to a maximum of 5 sticks per order. Reserva D'Oro is an exceptionally difficult leaf to successfully grow as it is susceptible to blue mould disease however we have managed to harvest enough grade A leaf at Tabacalera del Oriente in Peru to blend a remarkably sweet full flavour complex premium cigar that I believe is one of the best ever New World cigars.

It’s taken us over 18 months since we started this project, treat yourself whilst they are around as they won’t be around for long!

Juan Lopez Seleccion Superba
October 2016
There will be a trade launch event of the UK exclusive regional edition Juan Lopez Seleccion Superba on the 8th November in London and we expect our La Casa del Habano - Chester to receive the first stocks of this excellent new cigar.

Beautifully presented in boxes of 10 and measuring in at a hefty 5 7/8” length and 54 ring gauge this is going to be a very very popular cigar to say the least. I first smoked samples in Havana and was very impressed. I love the brand as well as the size but clearly the finest quality leaf has been used to create a blend of merit and character. Medium strength and massive volumes of sweet tobacco flavour due to the large ring gauge.
First Limited Edition Havana Cigar for 2016!
September 2016
Limited edition Cuban cigar 2016 - Romeo y Julieta Capuletos
We are extremely happy to bring to you the first Habanos Limited Edition cigar for 2016: Romeo y Julieta Capuletos

Presented in dressed boxes of 25, the cigars measure 6" (153mm) x 53 ring gauge and carry the standard Edición Limitada second band. The factory name for this vitola (size) is Sobresaliente and it is the first time this size has been offered in the much loved Romeo y Julieta brand.

This vitola was most recently used by H&F for their 2014 UK Habanos Regional Edition which assumed the factory name as the commercial name (Por Larranaga Sobresaliente). This cigar proved to be a huge hit with Habanos enthusiasts and we believe the Capuletos will attract the same attention and following.

Sobresaliente translates to “outstanding” and we are sure the first Limited Edition of the year from Cuba will live up to its size name.

Limited Edition cigars use specially selected tobacco leaves grown in the Vuelta Abajo zone which are all then aged for a minimum of two years.

Romeo y Julieta Capuletos available here.
