A quality cigar deserves to be stored in a quality box, and there are plenty of options out there, from the dull to the stunning. However, we do prefer the stunning and we are sure that you will too. Cigar boxes are works of art and there is something to suit every cigar lover’s tastes and needs. From the first box designed by the Upmann brothers in Germany (before they even made cigars, they made the first cigar boxes) to today’s popular boxes including the Davidoff Year of the Monkey boxes. With so many cigar boxes to choose from, what are the best options on the market?
The first box we have for you is a popular collector’s item on eBay. As we mentioned above, brothers Herman and August Upmann created the first cigar box around 1840, even though the boxes that bore their name didn’t contain their now-famous cigars. Prior to their cigars and even prior to their box creation, these brothers from a family of bankers convinced their father that they needed to open a branch of their bank in Cuba. This is not likely a coincidence considering that Herman was also an avid cigar enthusiast. The rest, as they say, is history.
Davidoff Year of the Monkey
Davidoff is known as one of the biggest names in sophisticated cigar smoking and they’ve become known as one of the more creative brands for their cigar boxes. One of the most popular versions is the Year of the Monkey cigar box. It is perfect for storing the cigars that came with it or other cigars as well. However, even without cigars, this box is a stunner and can also be a great accessory for your home or office.
Davidoff Limited Art Edition 2017
Davidoff continues to lead the charge with their themed boxes including their new boxes which feature Caribbean artist Rodell Warner from Trinidad and Tobago. He’s created pieces of art, inspired by the unique natural context of the Caribbean islands for Davidoff’s new Limited Art Edition boxes. Learn more about their Limited Art Edition boxes and also several others at Davidoff of Geneva.
