If you are looking for cigars in Kelowna for someone close to you, you probably know how much they enjoy it when the time comes to sit down and relax at the end of a day with a nice cigar.
You don’t need to be a true aficionado to pick out the perfect cigar for your loved one – just learning a few basics will point you in the right direction. A cigar smoker will appreciate trying something new, especially if it’s a gift!
As a cigar smoker myself I found it really hard to find great cigars in Kelowna and that’s what inspired me to install the valley’s largest humidor and rename Minit Market, Havana Room @ Minit Market.
There is truly a culture that surrounds cigar smoking.
Although you don’t need to buy an entire box, it’s best to get a high quality, handmade cigar rather than the cheaper, machine rolled alternatives. Fear not, quality can be attained for very reasonable prices, starting from around the $5 price point.
Make sure you avoid your standard corner store cigars unless they have a real humidor to store their cigars in to keep them fresh. It’s easy to find cheap cigars at almost any corner store but these are almost always of a poor quality.
The cigars you purchase for your loved one should be 100% tobacco. Confirm the ingredients with the in-house tobacconist.
Top 5 Cigars In Kelowna
1. Boliva Royal Corona– comes in a tube for a nice presentation
2. Cohiba Siglo III – for the cigar aficionado with a discriminating taste
3. Romeo y Julieta No. 2 – great value for the cigar you are getting
4. Montecristo No. 2 – one of the most popular and recognized cigars
5. My Father – it’s one of the nicest non Cuban cigars available
If the cigar shop is reputable, you should be able to see, touch and smell the cigars. Give the cigar a slight squeeze to ensure it is firm and fresh. Avoid lumpy or excessively soft cigars and inspect to ensure it is not dried out or dis-coloured. If the colour changes at the end then it’s likely that the cigar was not rolled properly.
If you don’t know what your loved one prefers to smoke, it’s best to go with a mild, longer cigar. If you know they are an experienced smoker, go for a thicker, bolder cigar with more complex flavours.
