    Introducing the Davidoff Special 53 Capa Domincana

    Regency Cigar is excited to announce the newest edition to our humidor; in the form of the Davidoff Special 53 Capa Dominicana Limited Edition 2020. This cigar was originally released by Davidoff way back in 2002. This cigar was special because at the time it was deemed nearly impossible to grow delicate wrapper leaf in the Dominican. This cigar not only proved it could be done but proved it could be done exceptionally. The cigar is also unique due to its size and format. The cigar is a 53-ring gauge perfecto. This is guaranteed to be one of the most desired and anticipated limited releases we will see this summer. However, the cigar will be extremely limited in quantity with only 4,500 boxes available in the United States.

  3. FDA and Premium Cigars: An Overview

    FDA and Premium Cigars: An Overview

    I think it's important to begin by addressing, who is responsible for regulating the premium cigar industry?I think many might be surprised to find out it's the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. On Aug. 8, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's deeming regulations went into effect. This essentially marked the first day that FDA was formally regulating cigars. These deeming regulations have, and will continue to have a major impact on the premium cigar industry for years to come. The FDA regulations on the industry are complex and far reaching; in this article we aim to touch on some of the fundamental implications. The three main issues in the FDA’s regulatory efforts stem from warning labels, product approval, and user fees.

    Lets first discuss the issue of product approvals. Prior to the FDA taking the reins on the regulation of premium cigars, the new product was able to flow freely into the market. This was a major benefit to the retailer, manufacturer and most im

  6. A Beginners Guide to Cigar Smoking: Cutting and Lighting A Cigar

    Cutting A Cigar

    Regardless of who you are, or what cigar your smoking enjoying a premium hand made cigar always begins with cutting and lighting the cigar. Every individual has his or her own routine when it comes to doing this. However generally it begins with making some type of cut to the cigar in an effort  to remove part of the cap or flag leaf that closes the cigar, while leaving some of it glued around the end to keep the filler leaves together. In my experience it's always better to make a more shallow initial cut, then test the pre-light draw. If the initial cut is too deep the cigar can run the risk of unravelling.  Traditionally three types of cuts are used; a straight cut, punch cut or v-cut. For myself personally, and in my experience the majority of smokers select a straight cut, also known as a guillotine cut. Having a quality and sharp cutter makes this cut much easier and reduces the risk of damaging

Many of us enjoy the luxury that comes along with smoking a premium hand made cigar; however very few know the effort that goes into making the cigars.

The seeds are first transformed into seedlings, this takes about 60 days. Once they become seedlings they can be planted in

    A Beginners Guide to Cigar Smoking: Why We Smoke Cigars

    We all smoke cigars for a variety of different reasons, but in my personal opinion it boils down to three main ones for the majority. The first is the relaxation that comes with smoking a premium cigar. Many of us live hectic lives, trying to balance a busy work schedule, running a household and maintaining a family life. Sitting down to enjoy a cigar; whether we are at home or at a local shop allows us an hour or two of escape.
