altWhile many of you out there are likely to be fond of big cigars, we bet you don’t have one in your collection nearly as big as this one! As usual, we have more legislators trying to put more taxes on tobacco, but on the bright side, there are a couple of new places to buy premium cigars—and one of them will come to you.


 

 

 

 

World’s Biggest Cigar Sells for $185,000 in Florida

We have no idea what you’d do with a cigar this size, but it would certainly make a heckuva conversation piece! It all started when Juan Panesso of CigarsDirect.com received a call from a broker who was looking for dozens of the pricey Gurkha His Majesty’s Reserve cigars that sells for a whopping $750 each. Then conversation turned to the Gran Habano #5 El Gigante.

The Gran Habano #5 El Gigante is a display piece that was created for trade shows. This mammoth cigar is almost 19 feet long and over three feet wide, weighs about 1,600 pounds and contains enough tobacco for 25,000 regular cigars.


After making a few phone calls, Panesso was able to make a deal to sell the huge cigar to an unnamed buyer for $185,000. The mighty cigar comes with its own case, a round wooden crate that weighs 900 pounds and resembles an antique steam locomotive. The shipping costs to deliver the Gran Habano #5 El Gigante to its new owner will be about $15,000.



Panesso hopes this really big sale will draw attention to CigarsDirect.com. "A guy called and he needed to locate a few high-end cigars. We pride ourselves on finding the hard-to-find cigars. This shows we are able to fill all our orders."


Perfecto Cigar Holder Grabs Attention at PGA Show

The recent PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL, gave golfers a chance to check out some of the coolest gadgets on the market. One favorite was the Perfecto Cigar Holder, which solves the problem of where to stash your stogie when it’s your turn to putt. The Perfecto Cigar Holder clamps securely to your golf cart and holds your smoke firmly in place. For more information, go to perfectocigarholder.com.
