Best Cigar Bundle Deals in 2022

As the adage goes, “you don’t smoke the boxes, folks!” One of the first things we think about when it comes to cigars is a box. Packaging cigars in boxes dates back to around 1830 in Cuba courtesy of H. Upmann – a cigar brand born out of a banking enterprise. The company began sending cigars from Cuba to its staff in England in cedar boxes which they discovered prevented the cigars from drying out, in addition to repelling beetles. Boxes were also a convenient tool for branding and marketing to consumers as the company could put its logo on every box which added appeal to the buyer and made it easy to recognize the brand.

Many cigars also come in bundles. The emergence of cigar bundles can be traced back to the early 1960s. Originally, bundles were exclusively marketed as “value cigars,” or manufacturer’s seconds – cigars that were well-made, but may exhibit a cosmetic imperfection or two. Boxed cigars are sorted by color after they are rolled to insure a uniform visual appearance. That’s why, when you open a box of cigars, each cigar will look identical to the next, but if you open two different boxes side by side, there’s a chance that one batch of cigars may look a touch darker or lighter by comparison.

Initially, bundles were not sorted by color and presented a means to save on packaging and the labor costs tied to the cigar-sorting process. Certain machine-made cigars were also packed in bundles. Nowadays things have changed considerably. Bundles are no longer simply a home for “manufacturer defects” or less-consistent cigars. The burgeoning appetite consumers have for premium cigars is not solely relegated to boxed goods. An ever-growing selection of premium handmade cigars exists exclusively for the bundle market, which includes connoisseurs of top-shelf, premium brands, as well as shrewd value buyers looking to get the most for their buck.

Benefits of Buying Bundled Cigars

You can find inexpensive bundles of utility cigars for yardwork as well as quality brands you can pass out to your pals with without breaking the bank. Bundled cigars are cheaper than most cigars sold individually, making them great everyday cigars. They come in variety of strengths and flavor profiles for every type of cigar smoker out there. You’ll find cigars for beginners and seasoned connoisseurs in bundles. Cigar bundles belong on your shopping list. Below, we’ve outlined our top ten best bundle cigar brands.

#1 - Rocky Patel Mulligans

Rocky Patel cut his cigar-making teeth with iconic releases like the 95-rated Rocky Patel Decade and Vintage 1990. With a burgeoning brand portfolio and a number of notable accolades under his belt, Rocky is also lauded as ‘King of the $3 Golf ‘Gar’ thanks to the vast amount of time and detail he pours into his top-selling bundle projects, none better known than his popular Rocky Patel Mulligans franchise. Rocky Patel Mulligans was originally born as a home for a handful of blends Rocky intended to release as part of his core portfolio.

Because Rocky’s priority has always been delivering his prolific output to the masses, he elected to forego designing boxes, in favor of a more direct approach by bundling the delectable Mulligans blends he pumps out. The strategy also saves Rocky fans a ton of their hard-earned cash thanks to unbeatable rock-bottom prices that start around $1.99 per cigar, or $39.95 for a premium bundle of 20 handcrafted Rocky Patel cigars.

With 12 distinctive Rocky Patel Mulligans blends to choose from, we recommend selecting a wrapper varietal you already know you’re a fan of. Wrapper options include Connecticut Shade, Ecuador Habano, San Andrés, Ecuador Sumatra, and more. Pick up the Rocky Patel Mulligans ‘Aces’ Collection to sample each blend first. Rocky even makes Mulligans Groundhog, a short, fat 4 x 60 shape just for fans of Nub cigars looking for a less-expensive alternative. Put Mulligans on your radar and take the easy road through Rocky country, friends!
