FAQ About our Store
“What’s the difference between Boutique Cigars and other Premium Cigars?”
Boutique Cigars are premium handmade cigars which, in contrast to regular premium cigars, are made in small batches. There is greater detail on quality, and the tobacco leaves are special and hand selected to create a distinguished complex flavor. A Boutique cigar company makes less than one million cigars annually. While difficult to find in many cigar retailers and cigar stores and smoke shops, Boutique brands are something different from the ordinary mass produced cigars commonly available in most cigar shops. Their flavor and aroma is unmatched.
“Why do you only sell Boutique Cigars?”
Due to the cigar boom, the price of raw tobacco leaves had escalated to levels that would have required Boutique Cigar makers to price their cigars out of the market. This problem made it very difficult for these high quality makers to get the best, most delicious tobacco leaves. Due to the high demand for cigars, many boutique makers followed the pack into mass production. As the cigar boom ended, the tobacco farmers focused more on quality and the Boutique Cigar makers were again able to obtain the choice leaves for their cigars at prices that are reasonable. They went back to their roots of only making these cigars in small batches. There is NO COMPARISON in quality and taste between the boutique cigars and those made by mass production cigar makers. As cigar lovers we decided to share this wonderful and unique smoking experience with everyone else. Now everyone can get these incredible cigars at incredibly low prices.

“Will the small batch production of Boutique Cigars that I buy from Cigar Boulevard affect the availability of the cigars that I enjoy in the future?”
Since these cigars are made in small batches and very exclusive tobacco leaves are used, once a brand is depleted from our inventory, we may not be able to offer it again.

Our recommendation is if you like them, get them while you can.
