About the best time to enjoy a cigar is on vacation. That’s why you’ll find cigar shops near resort areas, golf courses, and on cruise ships. By the time you get where you’re going, it’s awesome to kick back and have a cigar. But get out your credit card if you didn’t bring cigars with you. Like toothpaste and aspirin, you pay more when you buy your cigars on vacation versus before you leave. Besides, you don’t want to get stuck buying phony Cubans from a guy on the beach. Plan ahead by ordering the best cigar samplers before you travel.

Cigar Samplers for Your Suitcase & Carry-on

It’s easy to fit 5 or 10 cigars in your suitcase when they come in a boxed sampler. Here are some of the bestselling samplers we recommend taking on your vacation because you can enjoy an assortment of different blends and sizes one tidy package that won’t take up too much space when you toss them in your carry-on. 

1. The Ashton 5-Cigar Assortment includes five exceptional Dominican cigars from the award-winning Ashton brand.
