The Index Advent Calendar is the most superlative presentation, of premium Cigars. I come from the printing industry, and can appreciate the work that goes into the complex hand binding and assembly of "the box". Advent Calendar boxes are becoming more popular now, but they are all the same size compartments. This is a wonderful and unique design of different sized and positioned drawers, consistent with the variety of cigar sizes within. There are 21 wonderful cigars, and 4 gifts. I have too much respect for the cigars to smoke one a day as suggested by the concept. Some will go in to storage, but there are still plenty to enjoy during my special Christmas moments and events. I hope The Index continue this tradition, as I will surely buy an Advent Calendar every year they do. Bravo to all involved, and I hope the box deservedly wins a few creative packaging awards too. 10/10

Cutting your cigar correctly is imperative to ensure that you have the ultimate experience enjoying your cigar. It is highly recommended that you use a purpose-built cigar cutter to cut the cap off the head of the cigar. Using instruments such as scissors or a knife to cut your cigar can jeopardise the quality as incorrect cutting can lead to the cigar unravelling. There are various cutters which you can use, to view our full selection of cutters we have available, pleaseclick here. There are many cut types which you can choose from, every option works equally the same however it is up to your personal preference. For cigar novices we recommend a guillotine straight cut.
We recommend using a cedar lined humidor to store your cigars for longevity. Cigars should be kept at a temperature between 18 and 22 degree celsius with a relative humidity between 65% and 75%. To view our entire range of relative humidity control and humidors please visit ouraccessories page.

A ring gauge on a cigar indicates the diameter of the cigar. When measuring a cigar there is two commonly used dimensions being the ring gauge (diameter) and the length. These two measurements with then determine the estimated burn time of a cigar. Ring gauge is measured in 1/64th of an inch. If a cigar has a 52 ring gauge that means that the cigar diameter is 52/64 of an inch.
