The thing about cigars is that you can’t just put them anywhere. When they’re not lit, they have to be kept at a proper temperature in a humidor. And when they are lit, it’s not like you can just set a cigar down on your wood furniture. That’s why cigar holders are handy. Cigar holders may not be as essential as the lighter or cutter, but if smoking a cigar is something that isn’t meant to be rushed, then why not invest in something that lets you take your time?
There are a variety of cigar holders that allow you to either take your cigar on the go, or keep it in reach but not in your hand when lit. If you like to smoke cigars on the links, there are special clips that attach to a golf cart. If smoking while drinking a glass of whiskey is more your speed, this list features an old fashioned glass with a loop for holding a cigar. Also, if you’re looking to take your cigar collection on the go, consider a portable humidor. It’s about the size of a travel coffee thermos, so it’ll be a lot easier to carry than a traditional humidor. These are some clever cigar holders for enjoying cigars on the go.

3. Grip Clip Cigar Holder
A simple and easy-to-use holder that will any cigar, no matter how big. What we love about this fine wooden holder is that it’s versatile. You’ll never have to worry about it melting or not being able to hold your cigar. What’s more, it’s devilishly simple. It uses a few well-cut grooves, a couple rubber bands and that’s it.

Cons: Be wary of the clip. The strength of the rubber band can sometimes be too much for your cigar, and cause it to pinch.
