The latest Limited Edition Cuban cigar 2017 (Just a bit late)
February 2018
Punch Regios de Punch Cigar (Limited Edition 2017)


The latest Limited Edition Cuban cigar for 2017 (albeit a little late!)

This follows the crazy success of the Cohiba Talisman but will appeal to a slightly different audience. This is the UK cigar fan’s cigar; a much more sensible price, the same excellent quality, more mild than the Talisman, but from one of the most popular brands in the UK. We don’t expect these to sell out quite as fast as the Talisman, but they certainly won’t hang around for long.

Our advice, pick up a cabinet for now, and a cabinet to age – it will definitely be worth the wait!

Mitchelleros – The NEW Affordable Cigar - Exclusive to C.Gars Ltd


C.Gars Ltd is delighted to launch our exclusive brand of Mitchellero cigars. Made specially for C.Gars by Nestor Plasencia in Nicaragua to a blend selected, tested and approved by Mr Orchant.

These delightful cigars are medium strength with a medium sweet flavour and a hint of cedar and spice . Beautifully crafted with a rich brown Connecticut wrapper the construction is quite perfect and allows for a cool and easy draw.

Available exclusively at C.Gars Ltd and Turmeaus cigar shops at an incredible value for money price. Do not confuse this premium cigar brand for cheap imitations. There is nothing on the market that will compare to the quality and price of this excellent premium cigar.

The NEW Mitchellero range has been blended with the Chinchalero cigar smoker in mind, the main difference being that they use long filler rather than short filler. This gives the cigar a much more controlled and refined flavour; the spice is softer and less distinct on each puff, the cigar also has a good degree of development and complexity. Furthermore, you don't get bits of loose short filler in your mouth whilst smoking. All round, a much better cigar for a very similar price with a very similar flavour.

James's Trip to the Dominican Republic - February 2018
February 2018

I'm back from my trip to Santiago and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, one of the birth places of some of the very best, premium cigars in the world. The journey was a real eye opener and made me realise that we often overlook this country, and it is to our own detriment! The commitment, love and passion that these people have is second to none, and it shines through their excellent cigars brighter than the sun.

C.Gars Cigar Auction
December 2017
Online Cigar Auction

Our 4th and final auction of the year took place on Tuesday. This was an incredible sale with some of the rarest Havanas being knocked down at record proceeds. This could be partly due to the weakness of Sterling and certainly due to their scarcity.

The sale had around a 98% sell rate with around 360 Lots going under the (electronic!) hammer. Pre embargo interest seemed a little softer than previous sales as did Davidoff prices which was a surprise. Dunhill prices edged ever higher as did good quality vintage and limited edition Havana cigars.

Highlights of the sale (excluding auctioneers fees) to name a few included:

Cohiba Majestuosos Humidor £6,850
Dunhill Cabinetta £11,000
Dunhill Estupendos £8,300
La Flor de Cano Diademas £6,200
La Flor de Cano Short Churchills £7.600
Cohiba Gran Reserva £5,500
Davidoff Chateau Mouton Rothschild £5,000
Romeo Clemenceaus £5,550
Diplomaticos No. 2 £3,800
Upmann Sir Winston £3,750

Thanks to all of our sellers and congratulations to all of our bidders. Our next auction will be held on March 20th 2018.

John Adler Pipe Collection
