  1. Experience: Neutral

    Customer service is always very attentive with e-mail and phone contact.

  2. Experience: Neutral

    Massive shipping delays & a word to the wise – find someone else to deal with.

  3. Experience:

    Placed an order in early July. After three phone calls, I still don’t know why order has not been shipped. Never again.

  4. Experience:

    I had no problems in my previous orders, to be honest. But, it’s been 16 days now since my last order, I send emails 3 times, called customer service twice: no replies, no answers, nothing…

  5. Experience:

    I’ve had only good experiences with Absolute Cigars. I look for their weekly specials, which provide some of the best prices around. Shipping has been quick and reliable.

  6. Experience:

    Just traded emails with “Mike” at Absolute Cigars. My 3rd order from them. They have yet to ship in a timely manner. They have backed out of their Delivery Guarantee. Worst yet, I was told by “Mike’ who seems to be the only employee (every email and phone call has been with Mike)I should take my business elswhere if I don’t like their shipping procedures. Will never use them again

  7. Experience:

    I ordered from Brazil, I sent 2 emails about my order and NO response. After 30 days ordering I receive my cigars here in Brazil. The box was not sealed in vacuum, but sealed with factory seal. Althought I happy to receive here in Brazil!

  8. SmokinWheelzzz says:


    Just received the first half of an order with Absolute. They stated they had shipped about 9-10 days before they actually did ship, but everything so far has arrived without problems and the tracking for the second half of the order says it should be here tomorrow. Overall turnaround, about 3 weeks. Will enjoy the Cohiba Secretos and H. Upmann Corona Juniors. Hard to complain!

    Placed two orders more than a month ago and I never received it . Never again !!!!!

    Update (Mar 25 2011) Finaly received one of them !!!!!

  10. Sfingerman says:


    I placed an order on May 9. Received an e-mail saying they were out of stock but should be receiving them in approximately 2 weeks. I still haven’t received my order. I have sent 3 e-mails with no response and left 2 voice mails with customer service with no response. Any suggestions.

  11. Experience:

    I have placed several orders for non-cubans over the past year. The quality of the cigars has been excellent. Yes, shipping was a bit slow, but I time my order placement so that I can expect my new shipment just as I run out. I have contacted customer service both via email and phone on occasion, and have found them to be prompt and courteous.

    Experience: Neutral

    Cigar variety: 4 out of 5
    Cigar quality: 4 out of 5
    Cigar delivery:2 out of 5 (got some freebies for delivery delay…_twice_)
    Overall, if they could improve their delivery timelines would be great!

  13. Experience:

    I’ve been dealing with Mike at Absolute for about 4 years now. While yes, there have been cases of delays in shipping (many times more to blame on the vagarities of international postal carriers than anything else) I’ve never yet had a problem of getting Mike via phone and he has always been very attentive and helpful. Honestly, I’m kind of surprised at some of the comments here, doesn’t sound like the same company I’ve been buying from.

  14. Experience:

    I’ve been dealing with Absolute for over a year now, and I’ve had nothing but excellent service from them…Mike in particular. Any issues were promptly dealt with with quick e-mail replies. Excellent customer service and great product!

  15. Experience:

    These guys are great. I have never had a problem and I have been ordering from them for years. Shipping is slow but from them to me is 6000 miles. I put on an extra two weeks and just sit and enjoy when the beauties come. They have great deals and they are the real deal. Some of the other comments sound very suspicious!

  16. Experience:

    It was my first experience with AbsoluteCigars and it was a very positive one. The service and the shipping procedure were excellent .My cigars arrived in perfect conditions. They will be my new cigars supplier.

  17. Experience:

    Ive been dealing with Mike for over ten years and he is excellent. Sometime shipping does take longer, especially shipping to Canada, but i have always got my cigars.

  18. Experience:

    Mike took care of my concerns very quickly and has made a customer for life Thank you Mike

  19. Experience:

    Fantastic communication from the Guys at Absolute Cigars. For an overseas buyer, the postage was fast, my cigars always arrive in excellent condition, and pricing is more than affordable Thanks Guys, Great Work..

  20. Experience:

    Wow, I was so happy with everything about this site. The cost, the speed of delivery and the products. I am in Australia and it took less that 1.5 weeks for the items to arrive in perfect condition. I have since made several other orders and have not had any issues. Thanks guys for a excellent experience.

  21. Experience:

    I have not received my product from them yet and have sent three inquiries without response thus far. I can tolerate delays but not being ignored. Absolutely no excuse from a business to ignore their customers after receiving payment for late/undelivered goods. Am looking for another online cigar vendor.

  22. Irishsmoke says:


    I Ordered for the first time two weeks ago, and i found everything, from ordering, shipping and packaging etc.. was excellent. It only took 7 days to arrive to Ireland. The cigars are in top condition. I will use again for all my Non-Cuban smokes. Thanks to Mike for the great service!

  23. Experience:

    waited one month for my order but worth the wait.cigars well packeged and great smokes

  24. Experience:

    -convenience of ordering 100%
    -customer service 100% (Mike )
    -shipping to Canada’s west coast 100% (9-days)
    -packaging 95%- great packaging, but I would have liked to option to pay an extra buck or two to have the cigars placed in a baggie with a humi-pac for it’s long journey.

  25. Experience:

    I placed my order 3 weeks ago and haven’t received it. I also submitted an order to a California company and received the cigars within a week. The California company had twice the distance to ship so I don’t think Absolute is sending cigars when the order is placed. If it is an issue of stock then the website should announce cigars that are currently out of stock so that the buyer can look elsewhere.

    This is my first order, and one thing is certain. These guys are not concerned about first impressions. Hopefully soon I can comment on the quality of the cigars

    Update My cigars have arrived and look good. I was also contacted by Mike and he clarified that the late delivery was due to stock issues. He also offered to cover my 180.00 order free of charge. I declined the free offer however it has changed my first opinion and I would recommend Absolute to anyone looking. Keep in mind that shipping delays may be possible on your orders but they will arrive.

  26. Experience:

    Getting married in one week. Ordered some cigars (twice) over two weeks ago thinking that would be enough time to get them to Australia. But as yet no word on when they will be shipped. Or even any payment taken out of my account. Emailed twice with no response. Very disappointed with the service. I wonder if they will turn up by the time we celebrate our first born!!

  27. Experience:

    I have been a customer with Absolute Cigars for a few years. The have good communications when you place an order and let you know when they ship your order. They have quick shipping and the packaging is good. I would definitely recommend them for purchasing cigars!

  28. Experience:

    Ordered cigars on June 4th, got an email it was sent on June 12th (8 days later!). When I got my tracking number it never left until June 20th! I needed these cigars for an event on July 5th and I am not going to get them. Read the rest of the reviews here clearly one man business with no real focus or service.

  29. Experience:

    I order a box of Non-Cubans to be delivered to Canada. I received them in 10 business days, and there was no duty. Will defiantly be ordering from them again!

  30. Experience:

    Placed first (and last) order with this company. Spent almost $300 for assorted samplers and a bundle. Out of the 11 ‘Premium Coronas’ sampler pack ordered, I received only 3 as advertised, the rest were certainly not of ‘equal or greater value’. I was charged almost $30 for Express shipping, which took 3 weeks to arrive..??!

    I am neither impressed with what I received nor pleased with the slow delivery….too bad Amazon doesn’t sell cigars, I would have received them within 3 days! (lol).

  31. Richard from Nova Scotia says:


    I have nothing but very great things to say about this company. I always deal with a very pleasant man named Mike (Who i believe is the owner)? He has always given me advice or recommendations, etc or answer any questions that I may have regarding cigars in general ( Even if it has nothing to do with my orders) He makes my orders feel very personal, and i feel like I am a valued customer and not just a number to him. As for the Quality of the Cigars which i have received so far. I honestly don’t think that i could even hand pick from a local boutique shop myself , cigars that are of that quality and freshness in which I have received from them so far! My most recent order just arrived this morning, and it only took 6 days from the day that i ordered to arrive at my home in Nova Scotia, CANADA. That’s as fast as it gets in my book. I also found a wonderful surprise in my package and that was a free cigar of great quality. This was perfect because it made up for the current exchange rate here in Canada… I will be a customer for life, and i just placed another order today also.. I will recommend this company to anyone!!!

  32. Experience: Neutral

    I leave messages but no return call. No response from e-mail I sent.
    I was glad to have the reviews available I wasn’t as concerned when I found so many other people were having problems with delivery and
    service from absolute cigrs.

  33. Experience:

    I placed an order on September 24, 2014, and waited until this past week to ascertain the status of my order. I called on three days and left a message on the answering machine, and followed-up two of my calls with emails, without receiving either an email acknowledgement or return call. If the company is not interested in my business, I will shop elsewhere.

  34. Experience:

    I ordered3 weeks ago, still have not recieved anything. Called, emailed and no reply.
    Wish I would have read these reviews before ordering from them

  35. Experience:

    Company was very professional and on time with my delivery. They even threw in a free cigar and matches ! I plan on oerdering from them in the near future.

  36. michel schryer says:


    I always order my cigars from absolutecigars.com. and so far I am satisfied with the service and it’s the only web site I use. No It’s not perfect but what is. There as been few hiccups with the shipping time but it’s not possible to control the mailing service. Stuff get stuck at the customs, no control over that. When there was issues with the shipping Mike always corrected it right away. Being in Canada It’s hard to get very good cheap cigars at that price.I will keep using Absolutecigars.com,thanks !

  37. Len Oberman says:


    I have been waiting for 6 weeks for my order which has been paid for and still not delivered, they don’t return phone calls or emails. Very poor service.

  38. Experience: Neutral

    I placed my first and last order with Absolute Cigars 5 calls and 4 emails and no reply.Why Mike would you not contact a customer all I want to know is the tracking number for my order.This is not how you treat people worst of all a customer never been treated like this before so Mike if you read this please stop go and read your emails and reply in some way to your customers.

  39. Experience:

    Very happy with dave and crew excellent customer support and cigars shipped promptly and arrived fresh in australia I will continue to use absolute cigars for all my needs from now on

  40. Experience:

    I had a hard time trying to find a company that would give me the confidence to ship cigars and a humidor and other accessories international. I was very pleased to find Absolute Cigars. Amazing customer service! They helped me put together a nice order of cigars and gave me the confidence I needed to make such a large order to be shipped internationally. Everything arrived, packaged extremely well. I wish all companies would have such top-notch customer service! You have a customer for life, thank you!

  41. K Randall says:


    Cannot recommend these guys highly enough. Excellent customer service & efficient worldwide despatch of quality cigars. You can order from a wonderful choice of cigars for worldwide guaranteed delivery. What’s not to like?

    Update (Jul 7 2015) Another great cigar shopping experience from the guys at Absolute Cigars. Prompt dispatch & my cigars arrived in top condition supported by Boveda packs. Their choice & prices are unbeatable. If you enjoy good cigars, good value & good service then no point in buying elsewhere. Enjoy.

    Update #2 (Jul 28 2015) I have only ever had great service from Absolute Cigars. I live in the U.K. & I don’t consider around 2 weeks dispatch time to be excessive, especially as most U.S. cigar websites wimp out of International Shipping.

    The only time I felt the need to contact Dave regarding late dispatch there was an issue regarding the availability of the size I ordered. He offered me an upgrade to a longer cigar of the same brand at a very reasonable price & threw in a couple of delicious freebies as well. This issue was sorted in less than half an hour via an email chat session.

    My cigars always arrive in tip-top condition & are great value. What’s not to like. I no longer source any cigars in rip-off UK.

  42. Experience:

    Placed an order 2 weeks ago and it is still listed as queued. I have emailed twice for an update and possible ETA with no response. I have phoned twice to hear that if you need immediate assistance please email us, I have left messages and no response. IMHO customer service is terrible. I will be very curious to see if I ever receive my order, no matter, there will not be a second.

  43. Dave at AC says:


    Honestly guys, this is a tad harsh. We alerted the customer to a temporary back order situation on the bundle he had ordered. We apologized for the delay and hassle, and the customer has now said in fact that he will order from us again. In terms of communication, we are available via email, Toll free phone, and social media. In this case we did have email issues and did miss an email from the customer, but responded within seconds to his Facebook message, and resolved the issue.

  44. Experience: Neutral

    In the interest of complete transparency, below it the complete conversation on Facebook:

    To AC:

    Does anyone ever check the phone messages and emails? I have left at least one phone message and 4 emails in regards to an order over two weeks ago that still just shows queued. My last email is a request to cancel the order.

    From AC:

    Hi Jeff – I do apologize. We had emailed you upon receipt of your order as to a back-order situation on this item (basically – did you want to wait or change the order or cancel until in stock?). I apologize that our email did not get to you. We have been experiencing some difficulties with our email server in sending email to gmail accounts in the last few weeks, and we’re trying to solve this. Still, such a long back order situation is not accceptable and we’re very sorry. We appreciate you reaching our via Facebook, and hope we can try again at some point in the future. Please feel free to write back via Facebook with any further questions or comments. We try to learn from all feedback, positive or negative. I know this doesn’t help you, but if we get a chance to do better next time we will most certainly add some value to your order to make up for your frustration. Best regards, Mike at Absolute Cigars.

    To AC:

    I do appreciate the reply here. The best feedback that I can give you is to return phone calls then, or have someone actually answering them rather than a message. At some time in the very near future I will change my email address to one that is not a gmail account and will attempt another order. Again, thank you for the reply here and I will give it one more shot in the very near future.

    To be clear, your alert to the back order situtation did not reach me, either in my inbox or my spam folder. As stated above, phone communication needs to be turned up a notch, don’t depend on email working properly, a personal one on one touch goes a long way to satisfying customers.

    I do appreciate the reply on FB and I have changed my email and I am considering a second order.



  45. Dave at AC says:

    Experience: Neutral

    To close out our comments as to Jeff B’s negative experience:

    Any small retailer, like us, will agree, we work hard to be perfect, but from time to time, a mistakes happen. All we can do when this happens is try to go above and beyond in our response to a bad experience and at the very least try to make the customer happy. We did try in this case. As I said before, once we solved our communication issue, we absolutely acknowledged falling short on this one; were polite and cordial; offered free goods; and sincere apologies.

    We’re a Mom & Pop, with a small hard-working staff, and unlike the huge corporate guys, we don’t have legions of very nice older ladies taking orders in a call center, or an automated system packing orders off a conveyor belt. Those retail giants ARE perfect. We are not. What we DO have, unlike the massive retailers is a willingness to ship internationally – they simply don’t need the business; won’t bother themselves to handle the paperwork; figure out the shipping; or take the loss risk – whereas we will, and even guarantee delivery. We’re the only retailer that does so internationally. Our many, many fans in Canada really appreciate this and know that we usually get it right, and on the rare occasion that we don’t, they know we’ll make it right for them.

  46. Experience:

    Dave, I do thank you for the posts and reaching out to me via FB and this forum. I have not forgotten about your offer to make it right and I do intend on taking you up on it. I would like nothing better than to post an amendment to my above post and give you a glowing review.

    I thank you for your time and commitment to righting this unfortunate misunderstanding.



  47. Experience:

    Love this Place….Good quality and fast service. I would recommend this company.

  48. Experience:

    Outstanding in all regards. Great shipping and quick turnaround.
    I will be a return customer

  49. Jeff the Canuck says:


    Was worried after reading some of the posts, but had an awesome experience. Order filled and cigars arrived within 10 days. Email provided tracking numbers so I could follow the progress of my cigars from USA to Canada. Extremely happy!!

  50. Experience:


    The only company who agrees to ship Internationaly.

    They responded to all my questions by mail under 24hrs and were very pleasant.

    Order, processing and delivery were done within 3 weeks and the packaging was perfect.

    Definitely recommend.

  51. Experience:

    Despite the communication problems on email, I had good contact after a few days and he has answered all my questions. Cigars are very good quality. I will buy from this company again because I now know the company :)

  52. Experience:

    I wish I had seen this site before I ever attempted to order from Absolute Cigars. This company is a joke and a nightmare to deal with. I placed my order two weeks ago and since then have sent 3 emails and called 8 times about my order. Every time I log in it’s status says “queued”. No one answers emails here or will pick up the phone. I am going to seek out a real company to do do business with as Absolute Cigars seems to be out of business

  53. Experience:

    Received my cigars yesterday from Absolute Cigars. They came in less than a week. Ordered two boxes,cigars were in perfect condition. I don’t have anything negative to say about them and will definitely be ordering from them again soon. Thanks Mike at Absolute Cigars for exceptional customer service!

  54. Experience:

    Ordered over 3 weeks ago, order still queued. No reply to emails either.
    I had one other order with them that arrived 3 weeks late with an apology, so I decided to give them another chance. Their prices are pretty good after all.
    A bit of communication would go a long way.
    I won’t be using them again.

  55. Experience: Neutral

    Pros: Good packaging, with Boveda packs, and cigars arrive in good condition.

    Cons: Long shipping delays, no email confirmation of the order being received. No stealth international shipping.

  56. Experience:

    I placed an order for the first time with Absolute Cigars and was a bit nervous because I am from Western Australia. ( Long distance ) Once the order was taken, I had a tracking number emailed to me along with the payment invoice.
    I was able to track the items all the way with ease.
    The packing and quality of Cigars I purchased were excellent. I love the variety of Cigar they offer, normally not available here in Australia. All the Cigars arrived on time, even through the busy Christmas rush. The pricing of Cigars and postage was very reasonable.
    I would recommend Absolute Cigars to anyone. I do a lot of online buying and have found them to be just as good, if not better than any other company.
    I was very pleased with my dealings with Absolute Cigars and look forward to my next order with them in complete confidence, defiantly not nervous any more.

  57. Experience:

    Once again, OUTSTANDING. Shipping faster than ever and the packaging second to none. I am definitely telling others about Absolute.

  58. Thomas Wills says:


    I’ve ordered from absolutecigars.com twice now, and have had nothing but great service from them. Upon placing my orders, I was told it could take up to a month to receive my package in the mail (I’m in Canada). Both times I received them within 2 weeks. I was also provided up to date tracking info, which is a sweet bonus. I will definitely be purchasing from absolute cigars in the future! Amazing prices and they carry pretty much every cigar you could want. 10/10 give these guys a chance. You will not be disappointed!

  59. Experience:

    It was my first order, but wont be the last.
    i recieved my order within 2 weeks ( it’s so good if you think i’m living in Turkey).
    Package was quite good.Price was good too.

  60. Joey Dicaprio says:


    Honestly can’t get better then absolute cigars! Guaranteed satisfaction! From Montreal ordered 5 times got myself top quality fresh cigars! Mike hooks it up! Keep it up guys! I recommend to Anyone these guys are the real deal! Cheers! Can’t wait for my next stoggies!!!

  61. Experience:

    I ordered my first batch of 5 Rocky Patel 1990 from Absolute Cigar. They arrived way sooner than I anticipated and I am in Canada! They came nicely packaged and in perfect condition. I was a little skeptical at first by ordering online since I usually like to inspect the cigars before I buy them but the price point was very appealing so I thought I’d give it a shot. Put it this way, this is my new supplier of cigars! The whole transaction was seamless and I was able to track the shipment. Definitely a repeat customer here!

  62. Bohdank Kiszczuk says:


    Also in Montreal.

    12 orders since March last year. Had a problem with the very first one. No fault of AC. Package was delivered but not to me, so lost. Mike didn’t bat an eye. Sent a replacement box at no cost.

    By the way. just received my last order today. An Alec Bradley Black Market Perfecto was thrown in as a bonus.

    I cannot recommend AC and Mike more highly. Guaranteed delivery means just that.

  63. dean davies says:


    I have been purchasing cigars and cigar accessories from absolutecigars.com for a few years now and have never had a problem. As i live in Australia shipping was a little slow 5 years ago but now it’s only a matter of a week or two. Always a pleasure. And the small gifts of matches or surprise cigar is excellent.

  64. Experience:

    I have don lots of transactions with them. These guys now what they are doing. From the site to the customer service. All stages of the procedures are handled with care. I can easily say that they are my #1 supplier of cigars. And they ship overseas without any problems which is a very good perk.
    To make long story short. These guys are good.

    On behalf of you guys I would like to thank them again.

    Thx a lot Absolute Cigars

  65. Experience:

    Have bought cigars from them for over two years now and have always had good service, had a problem once and they were very helpful in making it right. Keep up the good work.

  66. Experience: Neutral

    Unfortunately, some US retailers (quite understandably) do not want to deal with selling and shipping to the UK. However, with absolute cigars this is not a problem. I have ordered twice from them now and delivery is always very fast. Thoroughly recommended.

  67. wayne challis says:


    Very quick service, just over a week to Canada, and well packaged.

  68. Alan Spiers says:


    Felt the need to leave this review. After having 5+ orders with this company I have nothing but good things to say. Every order I have made has been dispatched and arrived in the UK in excellent time. Can’t rate this company highly enough and look forward to my future dealings with them.

  69. Experience:

    I have had two orders with this company. I have nothing but good things to say about them. The orders arrived within 2 weeks to Australia. I am looking forward to ordering with them again soon.

  70. Experience:

    Twice i have ordered with no hassles into New Zealand, product always arrives in perfect condition and in a timely manner. Highly reccomended.

  71. Experience:

    I owe Mike Granger an apology for earlier comments. I just received an order that I placed a week ago. Communication through facebook was excellent and delivery and service was top notch! Second order is already enroute and can’t wait to place further orders with Absolute Cigar. Thank you Mike and gang, you have happy customer for life!


  72. Patrick Roach says:


    great cigars and good service. shipped on Feb 5th, got here on the 19th. as a complaint, they were very dry when they got here, going to take a few weeks to re-hydrate.

  73. Experience:

    I’m in Melbourne Australia, and I have just placed my Fourth order. I have had absolutely no issues and the cigars were well packaged and arrived fresh. I will continue to order from absolute cigars.

  74. Experience:

    I have received my second order without any problem. Thanks for the high quality service.

  75. Experience:

    I have been buying from Absolute Cigars for over 10 years now. Primarily the Rocky Patel Vintage 1990s, but I’ve also enjoyed several other brands. I purchase cigars several times a year, and have never been less than completely satisfied. Great product, great price, great service; who could ask for anything more?

  76. Experience:

    Another happy buyer from Melbourne, Australia!

    Humidor and cigars arrived in perfect condition within three weeks of placing the order. They even threw in a complimentary pack of matches – very nice touch.

    Definitely will buy from Absolute Cigars again.

  77. Experience:

    I have received my Montechristo Platinums in fine condition less than two weeks after ordering. I am in Australia and I am very impressed with the speed. I am also greatful for the sample El Ray del Mundo and the cigar matches they gifted me with. Absolute Cigars have created a permanent customer in me.

  78. Experience:

    I have been ordering cigars from Absolute now for more than 2 years. Have never had any issues when it comes to my orders, they have always been delivered in perfect condition. I also appreciate the complimentary matches and in some instances an additional stick.

  79. motionsick says:


    Nice selection, prices slightly higher than some places but every shipment is securely packed and includes with a Boveda humi-pak for each bagged set of cigars and were good to smoke as soon as they arrived.

    Processing took a few extra days to ship to Canada but had no problems, shipped with full tracking info (USPS/Canpost).

  80. Graham Hope says:


    I have been dealing with these guys for over 2 years now and they are absolutely ( no pun intended ) great to deal with. My orders have been received in a timely manner and if a phone call has been necessary the issue has been promptly dealt with
    Awesome… keep up the good work.. I love my Don Tomas cigars….I often get a bonus cigar too…..

  81. Patrick Walsh says:


    I must be up to about 10 orders now (recently ordered three times within a week; one order has arrived and I’m watching the progress of the other two as they make their way here). NOTHING BUT POSITIVE COMMENTS. Can’t say enough. Keep it up!

  82. Experience:

    Awesome!!! used these guys a few times now. Orders have been packed well, even scored the odd bonus cigar. They ship to Australia for me and I have received all my orders within 10 days. Can highly recommend.

  83. Experience:

    I’m very glad I chose Absolute Cigars, great prices, great variety, awesome service.
    I’ll definitely be using their services again (and again).

  84. Experience:

    I’ve ordered from these guys a few times now and each time I’ve been happy. Prices are good, and shipping is reasonable (up to Canada) and I’ve never had a problem!

    Boxes or sets of cigars are all shipped with humipak(s) to keep them fresh, which can important when things can sit in the post for days.

    Last box they even included a nice bonus cigar.

  85. Experience:

    I’m a customer for life now.

    To my fellow Canadians…don’t look elsewhere.

    Shipped in a very timely fashion, rec’d earlier than expected. Upon opening my box of beliscos I was actually really surprise with how well it was packed. They obviously mean it when they indicate that your sticks will arrive in great shape.

    ….and I didn’t get dinged with import taxes, so I’m massively pleased with that!

    Canadians – these are your guys.

    Absolute Cigar – I’m a customer for life now

  86. Experience:

    Just received the last of several orders I’ve made recently, again at warp speed.
    Packaging second to none. And as remarked on above, this order even included a bonus cigar. THANKS SO MUCH!
    I am definitely passing the word around about Absolute Cigars.

  90. Experience:

    This was my first time ordering from Absolute Cigars and I am very happy with everything. Cigars arrived in 6 days with a great bonus cigar (premium) and good packaging. I will continue to be a customer.

    Keep up the good work


  91. Experience:

    Just received my shipment(6th or 7th).As usual timely and in perfect condition.I agree with the previous reviews that Absolute Cigars is the best option for hassle-free(and duty-free) ordering from the U.S.If I have any complaint it would be that when I’m in the mood for a quick smoke(coffee break) I like to have an Al Capone filtered sweets and they don’t sell them.Keep up the quality service guys.

    Ordered twice from overseas. I will order more in the future. Thanks.

  93. Experience:

    It’s the first time i’ve ordered from them even though I have read some negative comments i ordered anyway, Absolute Cigars seemed reliable to me. they shipped within 4 days(which is reasonable) with a trackin number. The cigars arrived very well packaged, fresh and with a gift cigar. They have a great deal of cigars available with fair prices, It wont be the last time i’m ordering from Absolute Cigars and i would recommend them to any cigar lover anywhere in the world!

    Cheers from Quebec/Canada

  94. Experience:

    I buy from absolute cigars.com and could not be happier. Very professional and fast impeccable service as always. Will never buy from any other cigar website because no other site can duplicate the excellent service that they provide. They are a true sign that world class customer service is still alive and well. They even sent me an additional cigar with my order.

  95. Experience:

    7 days door to door from Virginia USA to Melbourne Australia. Blew my mind on how quick i received the top 5 rated cigars sampler pack. Will report when i smoke them which will be very soon. Dealt with Dave via email and was very pleasant and very quick to answer. Well done guys.

    Absolute Cigars have a great choice and an excellent after-sells service. Cigars shipped within 48hrs and arrived less than a week later, during which time their staff were very forthcoming with shipping details.

    This has proven to be a very positive experience for me. I am based in Scotland and find some cigars impossible to find and this company has really helped me out. The speed of delivery has been amazing, 8 days from placing my order to them hitting my humidor! I highly recommend absolute-cigars.
