View Full Version : Best Online Retailer to Get Fresh (not dry) Sticks?
Does anyone have advice on the best online retailer for purchasing cigars. I bought a bunch through famous smoke a while back and they were mailed in a poorly sealed box and all of them were (to one extent or another) a little dried out. Most were still fine to smoke (but I could tell the difference) but at least a few were nearly ruined. I've noticed that the couple of times I've bought a cigar on a trip (and then not had the opportunity to smoke it) and then put it in a checked bag that it was pretty dried out by the time I got home. I'm assuming the temp/altitude does that so maybe that's the case with air shipping.
Anyway, I was curious if anyone here had any good pointers on buying cigars online. Based on my last experience I definitely wouldn't buy anything good through Famous Smoke again. If any of them take steps to humidify the packaging, I would be very interested in that.
Just ordered some from Mike's Cigars. They put the little water pillows in the packaging. I always plan on getting them into the humi for some length of time anyway, but I've never had any problems with Mike's.
Me either and I've done business with Mikes for 40 years.
Thanks for the tip guys.
Can't say I've had those problems with FSS/Cigar Monster, but I also buy frequently from TampaHumidor.com, AtlanticCigar.com (I've got a VIP membership there), CigarsInternational.com, and a handful of other sites depending on sales.

Tampa Humi is here in town and has a wonderful selection in store and on line.
cigars international and their sister site, CigarBid are great. You can often pick up
5 packs and boxes for a percentage of their cost on Cigars International at CigarBid
with thoughtful bidding and patience.
Holt's. I've ordered several times from them: free shipping and cigars are always in good shape.
For over 5 years cigarsinternational.com and cigar.com never let me down
Also cigarbid.com know in by us brothers of the leaf has the devil site lol
It is owned by cigars international and I buy 95% of my sticks from there
I have weekly shipments come in every friday..I need to stop lol, I think about
2500 sticks should do me well for the end of the world zombie take over lol
