If you have decided to move your cigar purchasing to the Internet, there are several things you should look for before making your first purchase.
Reading online reviews — Your first step should be to read online reviews not only for the cigars you are interested in buying, but also for the stores where you may buy them. After all, you want to be sure you are buying a good product, and from a reliable supplier before placing your order.
Ask in chat rooms for recommendations — There are so many online chat rooms set up for cigar enthusiasts nowadays, it takes no time at all to find a place where you can speak to other enthusiasts and find out which mild cigars they recommend.
You never know, you may end up with recommendations for mild cigars you would never have thought of without someone else’s help.
Do a price comparison for both cigars and shipping costs — When it comes to buying cigars online, you must be sure to check both the cost of the cigars you are interested in buying as well as how much each store charges to ship them. After all, you do not want to find cheap mild cigars, and then end up paying far too much for shipping them.
Look at selection packs — Many of the online stores also have selection packs you could also buy. These are packs of mild cigars that include a variety of brands and flavors.
Why not try one or two of these packs to start with so you are exposed to more different types of cigars? You could end up finding mild cigars that you like more than any you have ever smoked, but would not find without trying a specialty selection pack.
