STORING YOUR CIGARS – When it comes to storing your Cuban cigars, cases provide excellent protection from damage and moisture. Something you must consider is the quality of your case, as it’ll have a significant impact on the longevity of the cigar as well as the smoking quality. You can get a singular cigar case or one that has multiple slots for each cigar. One of our favourites on our Cuban cigar shop has to be the S.T. Dupont Croco Dandy Double Cigar Case. It’s made from black cowhide leather and has an embossed crocodile print finish – offering a classic design with a stylish twist. 

THE MATERIAL – To some extent, the material of your case will be down to personal preference, whichever style you like the look of. Although the longevity of the material should be considered, as you will be taking it everywhere with you – it’s sure to encounter some trials and tribulations! It has to be a material that can withstand bumps, scrapes or even a fall here and there. You’ll find that the cases we stock are made from various materials:

    THE SIZE – There are various sizes and lengths to cases, so you’ll be able to find the best one that best suits your favourite smokes. There is the danger that is the case is too big the cigar could get bashed around and eventually burst. On the other hand, if it’s too small or tight it could result in it getting stuck in the case. Just make sure you consider the size of your preferred smoke when you're choosing your case.

    That’s 3 factors to consider when you’re looking for the best cigar case for you. The matter of what makes a good cigar case is purely subjective and will depend on what the needs of your cigars are. Before you go, be sure to check out our Cuban cigar blog to top up your cigar knowledge:
