    Cigar Gifting Philosophy This Holiday Season

    With the holidays fast approaching many of us will be looking to get the perfect gift for the cigar aficionado in our life. Cigars are unique, in the way that they allow anyone to enjoy a taste of luxury. When buying cigars this Holiday season we like to focus on a philosophy of quality over quantity. The cigar should be something special; maybe something they normally would splurge on for themselves. Brands like Davidoff, Arturo Fuente, and Padron offer some exceptional cigars that can accomplish this luxurious feeling. A perfect example of a cigar worthy of gifting this holiday season is the Davidoff Limited Edition Year of the Rat. A cigar like this is rich, flavorful and complex and is an excellent cigar to celebrate an occasion with. Purchasing one or two cigars of this caliber, rather than a handful of their “everyday” cigars is a great way to give your loved one a few hours of luxury and show them how special they are to you. Another important thing to note when purchasing cig
