What You Should Know about Cigar Bundles
While it’s no surprise - especially to our customers - that Rocky’s Cigars is the best place to find ultra-premium cigars online at the best prices, we’d like to shed some light on the matter of cigar bundles.
There are some shoppers out there who are reluctant to buy bundles or samplers or buy in bulk because they are afraid of getting a bad batch of “seconds” or of compromising on quality.
Here at Rocky’s Cigars, we care a lot about quality, and we would never send something along to our customers if it didn’t meet our own expectations. Check out these reasons that bundles may be just the refresher you need.
- You can get a really good deal on your favorite cigars
First off, one of the greatest reasons that anyone could possibly offer in defense of bundles is that you can save a lot on your favorite cigars, even getting a bunch of them at the same time.
Occasionally cigars are bundled because of cosmetic issues that in no way affect the quality of the tobacco or of the smoking experience. When you purchase a bundle for that reason, you often save a lot of money on great cigars that are effectively indistinguishable from others of the same name.
Generally, though, you just get a great deal on good tobacco just by buying in bundles, whether or not there are any blemishes to speak of - but more on that below.
Bundles are just a great way to enjoy your favorite cigars and spend less doing so, end of story.
- Don’t be afraid of cosmetic blemishes (if you find them)
As we mentioned, occasionally cigars are bundled because of minor cosmetic issues that may impact the appearance of the cigar or the tobacco. Since we taste with our eyes first, this sometimes results in bundling or a markdown.
But it is not something you should be afraid of or shy away from. Notwithstanding the beauty of some cigars, the smoking experience really is not visual. Provided the tobacco has been aged and cared for properly and rolled in accordance with the expertise of the torcedores where it was produced, the resulting cigar will offer an exemplary experience.
In other words, don’t let a superficial concern turn you off to a really great smoking experience that you can get for a fraction of the price. Buy a bundle and have a good experience and you’ll likely be a convert for the rest of time.
- It’s a cost-effective way to expand your tastes
We don’t want to harp too much on the same subject of cost savings, but bundles (as well as samplers) are also a great way to expand your tastes. If you want to try a new cigar or series of cigars but don’t want to shell out the money, a sampler or a bundle really may be the way to go. This is especially true if you’re planning on sharing.
Sometimes you just need to try something new to know if you’re going to like it, and bundles have the potential to give you a cost-effective method to do so.
- Cigar bundles save on packaging which is great for everyone
Another great thing about cigar bundles is the fact that they save so much packaging, which keeps costs down for you and the distributor or producer and is just better for the environment as well.
It’s no secret that a lot of expense and material goes into producing cigar packaging and promotional add ons. With a bundle you can slash this, saving you money and wasting less. It’s about tobacco, after all, and not the packaging.
- Save money for other essential accessories
Save a few bucks on a bundle and you’ll have more money to put into a new lighter or cutter or other accessories that you’ve been wanting recently. A bundle can help you come full circle in this regard!
- We care about quality
Some buyers might shy away from bundles simply because they are leery of the quality, or of the care that the tobacco has experienced. For our part, we care deeply about our cigars and tobacco, protecting them from undue exposure to light and from drying out.
- Affordable does not equal ‘cheap’
Finally, one more thing to keep in mind is that affordable and cheap are not the same, no matter how similar they may appear. Cheap has negative connotations of a detriment in quality. Affordable just means you get a lower price.
It’s important to keep in mind the difference between the two, as many ultra-premium cigars get bundled for sale. Affordable does not mean they suffer in quality.
