Bugatti Cigar Cases

Andrew Nagy
Posted: December 12, 2011

Made from fine, Cognac-colored leather with Macassar ebony wood sides that shine like glass, Bugatti’s set of cigar cases are for the enthusiast who appreciates understated elegance.

The cases come in two styles—Churchill and Robusto— in two- and three-finger options. Each opens and closes with a nifty magnetic flap, and each is lined with Spanish cedar housing. The Spanish cedar, along with the entire construction of the case, is solid enough that one won’t have to worry about crushed cigars.

These cases, though, are not for the six by 60 ring gauge crowd. Bugatti has designed the slots inside the cases to specifically house traditional Cuban Churchill and Robusto sized cigars, which are 7 inches by 47 ring gauge and 4 7/8 inches by 50 ring gauge, respectively.

While the cases can, of course, be used to transport other cigars sizes, the precision design really shines when carrying the correct cigars. This is because the slots are contoured to hug the traditional sizes and minimize any chance your precious smokes will get damaged due to unwanted shifting. The buyer will be happiest if they stick to storing cigars of similar ring gauges, although length is not as important a factor.

While the cases are perhaps a bit expensive—$250 for the Robusto style and $300 for the Churchill—we believe the splurge is worth it.

You’ll find the Bugatti cigar cases at fine tobacconists throughout the United States.

Definitely quite a price tag for a 3-stick case. Definitely sweet though if you have the money to spend.

NYC Big smoke ticket or a carry case? Maybe they will hand them out next year, with your 27 cigars.

Nice but for that price I can buy a new humidor for 200-300 cigar capacity

Too bad, my favorite rings are 50-54 Me thinkstthey make them too small.
