The Truth about Bundled Cigars

I have been asked to describe “bundled” cigars, because there are common misconceptions.

One inaccuracy is that of inferior quality and the cigar was made to use less than acceptable raw material. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Reason, these brands are meant to be bundled, it's the only packaging available. They have been introduced as a “bundle” cigar, with a specific blend, very smokable, and have and will remain available-year after year.

Secondly, you as a consumer who may have specific cigars for certain occasions, and sometimes a bundle fits perfectly. A cigar for your “everyday cigar”, and other cigars for special occasions.

This is not to say they are less than other cigars in the “collection”, only to say that they are a great value priced product. Of course there is a financial savings in a bundled cigar, when you consider other cigar product presentations of exceptional boxes, personalized cigar bands, and etc. Which other brands want for their product identity.

A common question asked, when viewing a bundled cigar for the first time “are they any?” and answer is they are very smokable, and manufacturers are proud of this entry.

Finally, there have been bundle entries that have less than acceptable particularly doing the so-called cigar boom years of 1995-97, they have disappeared, the cigar consumer made that decision.
