Buying a box of cigars is a better deal than buying one at a time. First, buying individual cigars will turn out to be very expensive in the long run. Its better to buy boxes and store them for later use, and you don't want to wait to the last minute to smoke a cigar and realize you don't have any. Having a box of cigars is the best option to have cigars when you want to smoke them and avoid running around to get some smokes. Also large quantities tend to be more consistent and better quality. Always inspect your cigar box when you make your purchase to make sure the cigars are well made. After that place them in your humidor and make sure they don't dry out, and replace cigars before they finish and should always have at least five cigars inside the humidor.
