I am trying to get back into cigars. Haven't had one in ten years or so. Should I build and establish a coolador type rig before getting first stogie? Also where does everyone purchase from online? I was hoping to see a site with like a cutter lighter and few stick package but didn't really see much.
Thanks in advance!


Welcome from Illinois, I use CIGAR PAGE most of the time, I like them because they don't carge shipping and prices are good.

Welcome!  Cigar page is a good site.  I also watch cigar monster and cigar king deals.

I would suggest hitting up your local B&M and trying out a few different sticks.

Welcome to the group! You are in PA most of the major online retailers are there, Famous, CI, etc... but if you have a local shop please consider giving them the business. Don't overthink your storage at this point, a cooler with a few Boveda packs will get you by just fine or for a smaller amount a Tupperware/Ziplock container with a Boveda and you are good to go.

I am not concerned about what you think as I can tell you don't do it often.

I used to be a people person, but then people ruined that for me.

Every loaf of bread is a tragic story of a group of grains that could have become beer but didn't.



Looks like the other guys have you covered. Definitely agree with using some kind of tupperware that seals well and toss a Boveda in. I would go with a 65% Boveda, they hold really well in plastic containers.
This is not the admin you're looking for...



Welcome and enjoy the site! Small Batch Cigars is my "go-to" cigar site, all good ones mentioned above as well :smoker:

Welcome to the site. That small tupperdore will soon overflow! I like famous, only because they carry a few cigars that I like in certain sizes, only sold with them. I like supporting local though mostly!

Welcome to the site.  10 years.  I hope you kept the cigars you had well hydrated.
 :welcome:  :-)
I'm right 98% of the time.  Who cares about the other 3%?
