5 Things You Need to Know About Cigar Boxes!
September 2017
Cigar Boxes


Cigar boxes, some can be plain, others can be very glamorous. Our eyes are drawn to them and equally our mind is drawn towards the premium cigars inside. If you're buying a luxury-class cigar, there is an expectation that the packaging lives up to the brand image. But though they're equal parts storage unit and marketing tactic, cigar boxes have a story behind them.

Whether it's because of their practicality or our general mentality to hoard, cigar boxes tend to live long after the smokes are nothing more than just a memory. While many get thrown away, it's not uncommon for smokers to repurpose them into Spanish cedar drawers that hold everything from cigar cutters, matches and other accessories, to paper clips and whatever else that happens to be laying around the house.

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.

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.
