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.
1. Corkcicle Cigar Glass
This old-fashioned glass is an incredibly simple but clever way to enjoy smoking a cigar while drinking a glass of whiskey or a cocktail. It’s a regular cocktail glass with a slot on the side to slide the cigar into place. As a cocktail glass, it’s also well-designed. It has double-wall insulation and a sophisticated, square shape.
Pros: Good way to enjoy cigars with a glass of whiskey, made from durable glass and very giftable.
Cons: If the glass has ice in it, moisture can transfer to the cigar.
2. AMANCY Travel Cigar Humidor Case
This humidor has a round, tubular shape akin to a portable coffee thermos. It has a sophisticated leather-like finish on the outside and a built-in hygrometer on the lid. There’s also a humidifier and dropper included. 4 or 5 cigars can comfortably fit in the humidor.
Pros: Good option for travel, stylish synthetic leather outer, hygrometer is included.
Cons: The hygrometer is not the most accurate. Not ideal for long term storage because it is not completely airtight.
3. Cigar Minder Clip
This cigar clip is popular for golf carts, but it can be used just about anywhere. The spring-loaded clip is basically a large plastic clothes clip, except it has an additional clip on top for holding the cigar in place. It’s available in all-black or a variety of neon colors if you’re prone to forgetting where you put it.
Pros: Versatile design means it’s useful in a variety of places, especially popular for use with golfers.
Cons: Cigar clip can potentially rip a portion of the cigar if the user isn’t careful enough.
