Cigar aficionados across the world have been enjoying the arrival of South African premium cigars, which have a higher value and are now available at some of the country’s top cigar retailers.
Here’s how to find a South African cigar at a local store.
South Africa’s premium cigar market is worth a whopping $2.2 billion.
That’s more than double the market for premium cigars in the United States, according to research firm The NPD Group.
That puts it at the top of the pack for the world.
But while South Africa is on the right track with its cigar industry, it still lags far behind some of its neighbors.
Here are the top 10 markets for premium cigar sales: South Australia: $8.9 billion ($8.6 billion in the U.S.)
Colombia: $4.7 billion ($4.5 billion in U.K.)
Australia: More than $1 billion ($1.4 billion in Australia) United States: $1.1 billion (up from $1 million) Dominican Republic: $945 million ($890 million in the UK) Brazil: $11.2 million ($929 million in Brazil) Argentina: $2 billion ($2.3 billion in Brazil.)
Dominican Republic and Argentina also rank highly in terms of premium cigar production.
South Korea is also one of the top cigar producers in the world, according the NPD.
South Koreans have been growing their premium cigar population at an impressive clip, and the industry is expected to increase by 3.5% in the next four years, according a recent report by the Korea Tobacco Promotion Organization.
So, the South Korean market is ripe for premium releases.
There are currently four premium cigars on the market, and they’re coming out on a regular basis.
These are: Toro Tatuaje (6 cigars) The Toro Taturina ($5.5 million) Toro Tatuales ($6.7 million) The Dominican ($845,000) and the Brazilian ($1,099,000).
The top-rated premium cigar on the premium cigar scene in South Africa, the Toro Tatua, is a blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan and Ecuadorian tobaccos, and is said to be the most expensive cigar in the country.
It comes in at a premium of $4,500 per cigar, and has been available at all the major cigar retailers in the capital, Pretoria.
A cigar that’s more expensive than most of the other premium cigars?
The price of premium cigars can vary greatly from country to country, so it’s important to find out which one you’re interested in before you order.
For example, many premium cigar stores are offering discounts on all-inclusive packages at prices ranging from $75 to $1,500.
But if you’re looking for a cigar at the more affordable end of the spectrum, try ordering online.
