When you buy tubed cigars online you want the same quality and e you expect at your local cigar store. Tubed cigars are tubed for a reason – right? You betcha. The tube promotes freshness more than say no tube at all. But is it not a replacement for a humidor.
The tube is there to protect the cigar and make it easy to travel with or give to a buddy. If you plan on keeping the cigar for any amount of time, we suggest removing the tubed cigar from the tube and storing it in your humidor. Sure the tube will keep it fresher for awhile compared to just letting the cigar sit on a table or in a drawer, but ultimately cigars need to have humidity controlled air circulating around them to keep from drying out.
For one thing, it makes it easier to put in your golf bag or in your fishing vest, or even in the glove compartment of your car. The cigar tube will keep them fresher for longer, so your friends will appreciate the tubed cigar particularly if they don’t own a humidor. Typically a tubed cigar is the same as a non-tubed cigar. For example, the Arturo Fuente Rosado Sun Grown King T is the same cigar as the un-tubed version. It’s the same sweet, rich, full bodied cigar it always has been, except it comes as a tubed cigar in the “T” model.
The biggest advantage of tubed cigars is their portability. Pop one in your jacket pocket and you always have a smoke ready to burn. Gotham Cigars carries a wide assortment of both full sized tubed cigars in either glass tube, aluminum tube or plastic tube, as well as smaller cigars such as the Swisher Sweets Blunt XL line.
