Bank transfer method

By Richard & David on April, 11th 2011 - 4:59 pm

Just a heads up to all our members inquiring about payment methods and the BANK TRANSFER option. What it is and how to do it. Here I will try and explain the benefits of using it and indeed how easy it is to do.

BANK TRANSFER is available to anyone who has a bank account - so everyone in the modern world basically!

Why choose bank transfer?

1) Complete security in the payment - more so than credit-cards and cheques.

2) Free Cigars!! Everyone who pays via bank transfer gets a free pack of 3 Cuban cigars for each order they pass this way.

3) Speed - Contrary to what many people think, the bank transfer takes 1-2 business days for us to receive the money. With many of you in different time zones, complete the bank transfer and when we come in in the morning the money has already been received, so you are not missing a shipping day.

4) Anonymity - don't want the wife to know you're buying cigars - bank transfer will not appear on your credit-card statement. No awkward conversations required, tricky situation avoided.

What you need to do?

a) On the order check-out select the bank transfer option and confirm your billing address and email address.

b) You will be re-directed to our payment provider Klik and Pay's website. Select the bank transfer option once again from the drop-down options.

c) Confirm the selection and then confirm your email address.

d) You will now have been sent an email from Klik and Pay with all the details you require to make the bank transfer. You can either print out the attached document and hand it over-the-counter at your local bank or take the bank details and enter the payment on your e-banking.

e) We will receive your money in 1-2 business days.

It's as easy as 123 or as it is pi day 3.1412....!

Happy Smoking Everyone and any further questions let me or Richard know by email. We are hear to help!

Christmas Smoking Cubans on

Man on the Ground at the Festival.

By Richard on February, 27th 2010 - 2:40 pm

Have been at the festival for the first time in a while and it was crazy as usual. Lots of smokes, good company and able to feel guilt free in an atmosphere where people truly love their cigars. A highlight for me as always was the trip to the plantations. Anyone who is a fan of cigars or wine has to do this - go and see how it's all done from the planting of the seed to ending up in your mouth! The rich tobacco flavour from the fields was just divine.

There was another attempt by Habanos to try and woo the ladies with slender, light cigars this year. I always feel women enjoy a cigar because it's a sign of equality. If they've taken the trouble to try and smoke cigars they don't want to be singled out for special treatment do they?? There are plenty of light cigars (if that is what women want) out there as well as long thin ones already out there. Just another market which they have yet to crack I guess.

Back in sensible Switzerland now. Happy smoking!!

Hello from the new guy!

By David on January, 15th 2010 - 4:22 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm David and I'm new to the team here at TopCubans. I thought it be appropriate to introduce myself to everyone, my background, how I know Richard and my take on the world of cigars!

I've been travelling and working in and around Cuba for the last 18 months since graduating from university 2 years ago.

Richard an old family friend here in Switzerland gave me the idea of Cuba and Central America as an interesting place to visit for someone who has spent most of their time in Western Europe and the States! If I'm honest I did not have Richard's passion for cigars before I went, but spending a solid 9 months in Cuba and then also Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica and Mexico gave me a real first-hand insight into the effort that goes into the making of a hand-rolled cigar and also the great variety of tastes and blends on offer. A passion was born!

Through Richard I spent 9 enjoyable months working as an intern for Habanos in the heart of Havana, learning about the different brands, eventually spending some time at the H. Uppman factory which is of course where they make the most popular brand, that of Montecristo. I am a huge fan, so apologies in advance for any bias I show to the Monte brands!

For any passionate cigar smoker Cuba is a delight so my first piece of advice I will give on these pages is to get over there for a holiday. It's a beautiful and enchanting place, with great people, great food and the best of the best cigars!

I think the most important thing in this multi-cultural world is to keep an open mind and a willingness to learn. Curiosity drives passion which makes for a truly enjoyable life. The happiest people I know are the ones who have passions, whether that be sports, travelling, train-spotting or cigar smoking!

I look forward to getting to know you and to sharing our passion and experiences with each other. Richard and I are hitting the slopes this weekend so need to go and make up a box to take up in the travel humidor. a few Monte Edmundos'll be in there for sure!

I would like to make a toast, a cigar toast to the pursuit of happiness - cheers!


Autumn, the cigar smoker's Season

By Richard on September, 25th 2009 - 11:37 am

Imagine the setting; you are gently strolling through a woody forest. The air is crisp, but not cold, just enough to allow you to see your breath billow out with every step. The sun is present, but only to give light to Mother Nature's masterpiece of Seasonal metamorphosis. The leaves all around are taking on their rich Autumn colors, producing a duvet of brown, orange and red as far as the eye can see. Small animals busily shuffle around collecting and storing their food supplies for the long Winter to come. Your dog happily explores this world around him, fascinated by every sound and smell, occasionally coming back to you for a quick pat for assurance. This is the setting for your perfect Autumn smoke. Just you, your cigar and the miracle that is the planet we live on.

Autumn is my favorite smoking Season. I find the air is perfectly suited to enhance flavour and the foods are richer bringing giving much more depth to your favorite smoke. Enjoy these times. Why not share your ideal smoking situations with the club.

Aged Pack

By Richard on September, 14th 2009 - 11:36 am

Whilst new smokers tend to enjoy the young edgy aspect of a new production cigar, insisting on oily and dark wrappers, the more experienced smoker will no doubt see the enormous potential of sampling the Aged Packs. As the green flavours lessen and the aromas intended by the blend master emerge, the cigar starts to take on its true character. The oils in the tobacco fade, leaving flavour and balance in the smoke. Smoking an aged Churchill cigar is such a different experience to smoking a young, wild cigar. Let your palate discover the true tastes of Cuba and push yourself to experience the next level of smoking.

Relaxing in Tuscany!

By Rick on August, 06th 2007 - 4:45 pm

Hello from Tuscany!

I had the pleasure of spending my afternoon In the Grotto Del Vento, a natural cave just outside the village of Barga in Tuscany, Italia. The cave is as big as a Cathedral and very awe inspiring, although i had a little trouble taking the tour because I had eaten a huge fillet of beef topped with rucola and parmesan cheese at lunch, my feet were heavy to say the least. During the tour of this underground natural masterpiece i couldn't help thinking which cigar i would smoke after the tour.Finally i decided on the San Cristobal la Fuerza.
I needed something with a Cuban kick at the end to make me light on my feet again!


Summer Smokes

By Richard on June, 21st 2007 - 5:00 pm

The sun is a great thing! Smoking a great summer cigar in the sun is to me a spiritual thing. My cigar has to be in communion with the sun. It has to be easy going, light, fresh, smooth, fruity and spicy. Your choice of cigar can make or break that BBQ, it can enhance that cold beer on the porch. The sun is a great thing and summer smokes punctuate that!
