I jumped on the Cigar of the Month Club because I thought it'd be a fun way to try out new cigars.

What I found, however, might be something more. 

By 2027, the Cigars segment is projected to reach a volume of 45.64 billion pieces, indicating substantial growth. Furthermore, a 0.9% increase in volume is anticipated for the Cigars segment in 2024.

As volume continues to rise, the cigar clubs are experiencing thriving success.

But don't simply take my word for it—explore how the club operates and discover the contents within each box to form your own opinion.

What is Cigar of the Month?

A captivating image featuring a man smoking premium cigar and enjoying the exceptional craftsmanship and enticing aromas.

The first, and perhaps most important, thing to remember about this club is that it really is all about cigars.

If you've ever had a subscription box before, you know that the vast majority of them are just filled with, for a lack of a better term, stuff.

There's always a lot in the box that's really part of the main event, instead just a lot of filler.

Cigar of the Month Club is all about the cigars, full stop.

There's really nothing else going on there, and that's a good thing.

This isn't a company that's trying to sell your lifestyle apparel or that's trying to get you to use cool cigar accessories.

For good for ill, this is a company that's trying to get you some new cigars and nothing more.

What's in the Box?

This cigar subscription box contains four premium cigars, one cutter, and one cigar lighter.

The first thing you'll need to understand about this box is that it is fairly small - if you look at a lot of other cigar club boxes, you're going to see many more items.

Cigar of the Month Club cuts all of that out and keeps the cigars, a move that's actually nice.

If you sign up for the basic subscription level, your box will include five cigars and a few pieces of information about each.

The cigars included in the box are from a boutique manufacturer, usually a company of which you have probably already heard.

Beyond that, though, there's no standard cigar - they vary by region of production, taste, shape, and general profile.

It's a mystery to see what you'll get each month.

The higher-level subscription gives you access to cigars that are a bit harder to come by.

You only get four cigars in an expensive box, but that's because each of these cigars comes from an incredibly well-respected manufacturer.

You're usually looking at super-premium brands here, the kind of cigars you buy for special situations or that you hold back in your collection to show off.

The higher-level subscription also provides as detailed information as the lower-level subscription. It is good if you want to learn more about a given cigar.

That's it for what's in the box - no cutters, no bags, no advertisements for high-end humidors.

It's a really simple service, but it works.

You can tell that the company is putting all its effort into giving subscribers a good cigar experience, with no room for anything else.

That might be a bit of a disappointment for those who are more into 'cigar culture' than actual cigars, but it's great for subscribers who sign up to try a few new interesting cigars each month.

How Much Does it Cost?

The Premium Cigar of the Month Club offers its subscribers two different price points.

If you're looking at the Original Premium club level, you'll be paying $27.95/month plus five dollars for shipping and handling.

If you want access to the higher-end cigars, your price will jump to $42.95 per month plus five dollars for shipping and handling.

As always, there's a question of value when it comes to this kind of service.

Especially when you are an amateur cigar smoker, you don't want to pay for more than what you're getting. This particular company seems to know that.

They do have guaranteed minimum values for each cigar in the box.

The Original Premium level cigars are worth six to twelve dollars per cigar, so you're getting a value of somewhere between thirty and sixty dollars per box.

The rare Privada Cigar Club costs more, but each cigar is worth a good bit more.

The bare minimum here is twelve dollars per cigar, with a maximum of twenty-five dollars per cigar.

That means each shipment is worth between forty-eight and one hundred dollars each month.
