    Cigars in Heathrow Terminal 3

    Can anyone tell me whether there is a decent place to get Cuban cigars duty free in terminal 3? I donít want to take my travel humidor empty for it to remain so!

    Cheers

    Rich

    Where are you traveling to?

    Have a look at local prices. You might find that they are a lot cheaper than UK duty free prices. Thatís definitely the case in Spain where the prices are fixed nationally.

    I thought all the terminals had something to a degree, from a cabinet to something much larger. Certainly with watches Iíve had the omega boutique meet me at the terminal Iím traveling from with a watch.

    Not sure if they would bother with cigars, but canít imagine you couldnít get them transferred from another terminal, but worth asking. Obviously you wonít get to browse a selection that way though. Might offer a potential solution, a form of buy & collect.

    I've found Heathrow cigars to be underwhelming ie not in the best condition

    They don't allow you to inspect them before purchase but will refund if you're not happy. But who can be bothered with that

    Never bothered with Heathrow DF cigars, France, Spain etc offer well kept well priced ones, bought once a pack of 4 partagas as a present and as I was offered to smoke one it wasn't the best one I had.. Brazil should have a vibrant trade with Cuba, so you may be able pick up locally ones in a cheep.. Just saying.

    I just remember it being a real pain getting Cubans in Salvador last time. Plenty of Brazilian cigars but if I remember rightly the Cubans were quite expensive.

    Maybe Iíll get a few in London and risk getting them there.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Decided to get a few from my local supplier and get some Brazilian ones over there. Support the local economy and all that....

    I purchased some Davidoff and Montecristo in T3 in late August. It's a similar range to what is available in the other terminals at Heathrow, and easy to miss the entrance to the bizarre spaceship like room that they keep them in.
