I love cigars. Love them. Love them. I’m now making sure I enjoy cigars more often—the only problem being the local stores in Gainesville charge through the ass for the simple pleasure of a good cigar.
Take for example one of my absolute favorite cigars, Romeo y Julieta’s Rothchilde en Tubo. I love this cigar, and a year ago could get one for under 5 bucks. Today at Modern Age, the price was $6.24! As I paid for 2 of them, I kept thinking to myself, “you’re fucking kidding me.”
Sure, a great cigar is worth the money, but at over 6 bucks a pop, I’m looking at bankruptcy.
Ordering cigars over the Internet was never my favorite thing to do, but with today’s sticker shock I decided to give it another try. I chose Atlantic Cigar and the price was under 4 bucks per tube. With shipping (2 day) and humidifying products, the price was still under 5 bucks per tube—which is just a great way to end the week.
