Are cigars legal in Australia?
Yes, cigars are legal in Australia, and while certain states may require a tobacco license, Cuban, Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Honduran cigars can all be imported into Australia. Most tobacco products, including cigarettes, molasses tobacco, heat-not-burn products, and loose-leaf tobacco, fall under the category of 'prohibited imports', and importers of these products must declare their goods and pay all duties in order to receive their items.
Always check you are purchasing from an authorised cigar and pipe supplier and dealer, like Double Bay Cigar & Pipe.
Why are cigars so expensive in Australia?
Cigars command a high price in Australia, primarily due to the substantial national tobacco-specific taxes that contribute up to 65% of the retail cost. The expense of cigars in Australia is also influenced by factors such as limited supply, high labour expenses, and an emphasis on quality.
When it comes to determining a cigar's price, the tobacco quality also plays a crucial role. Crafting a cigar that is of high quality involves meticulous care throughout the process.
The cultivation of tobacco plants demands meticulous attention from farmers, who must handpick and process the leaves significantly, which can also heighten the production costs of cigars. A rigorous inspection is then carried out checking aesthetics, performance, compliance with product standards, and durability, among other factors.
True Cuban cigars, in particular, prioritise quality, craftsmanship, aging, and ingredient selection. This commitment ensures a smoking experience that effortlessly blends flavours, aroma, and a smooth draw. Cuban cigars are also unblended and completely free of preservatives or taste enhancers.
At Double Bay Cigar and Pipe, we strive to provide you not just with exceptional products, but also exceptional competitive prices.

What is a cigar made of? (Friendly reminding, smoking causes cancer, better not to start.)
Cigars are made of a single or different types of dried air-cured or fermented tobacco that is rolled in either a dried tobacco leaf or paper that contains tobacco or tobacco extract.
Some of the more higher quality Cuban cigars are a carefully constructed blend of pure, unadulterated tobacco. Not a single leaf is chemically treated, they are completely free of preservatives and taste enhancers, resulting in a strong, authentic smoke.
However, Cigars contain the same addictive compounds as cigarettes and are not a safe alternative. They can cause cardiovascular disease and various cancers such as lung, oral cavity, larynx, and oesophagus cancers.
