Our team at Top Leaf Cigar Lounge has extensive experience in the cigar business, and we have the right knowledge to help both new and experienced smokers find the perfect cigars.
If you are new to buying cigars, it can be easy to make mistakes, and our team has seen several cases where choosing the wrong cigar has put people off the hobby entirely. To help you make smart purchases, our team has put together this article to go over some common mistakes to avoid when you buy cigars.
- Blindly Following the Crowd – In our experience, it’s a mistake to buy cigars just because the brand seems popular or because everyone else seems to be smoking that variety. Your taste in tobacco is a highly individualized and personal matter, so there’s no guarantee you will like something just because others do. If you’re looking for a place to get started, we encourage you to ask our staff for recommendations.
- Not Learning Your Own Tastes – Another mistake we often see people make when they buy cigars the first few times is failing to pay attention to their own tastes or preferences. When you smoke, give your full attention to the experience and notice how each new cigar tastes and feels. This will help you learn what options to choose and which to avoid next time. You can also tell our experts about your experiences with different cigars so we can make better recommendations in the future.
- Buying the Cheapest Option – When you buy cigars, it can be tempting to stick to the cheapest brands, but this will rarely give you the best experience. Instead, we recommend choosing higher-quality options, as the smoking experience will be much more enjoyable.
