Hi
I am new here but thought given that a lot of you travel around the world you might be able to help me.
Does anyone know which countries are a good place to buy cigars cheaply. I find that in Australia they are very expensive. A friend suggested Spain does anyone have any experiences in this area.
I know Singapore has cheap cigarettes I bought them for a friend on my last trip any ideas if they have cigars as well.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

can't help with where is the best place to purchase, but be aware that it is illegal to take Cuban cigars (any Cuban products actually) into the USA. So even if you buy them outside Cuba, you still cannot take them into or through the USA.

So if making an ATW trip, buy them after you have left the USA and not before.

Most duty free stores that sell cigarettes sell cigars as well as roll your own tobacco. The range of cigars and roll your own tobacco may not be as extensive as the cigarettes available.

Which is cheapest? Generally where you find cheap cigarettes. SIN, HKG, BKK and most EU countries.

There is a big Cigar shop at LHR in T1. I used to smoke the occasional giant cigar but that was a long time ago...

Last time I bought cigars was in 2002 at CDG. They had a specialist cigar shop and had a huge range. Bought a box of 10 and took ages to get through, I even sold 4 when I returned to Australia so the remaining were free.
The EU have decent prices for cigars but remember that they count towards your total tobacco allowance based on weight I believe not quantity.
