Gotham Cigar Club

Today I am reviewing Gotham Cigar Club. Please note that I was not compensated at all for this review except for the free cigar pack. My reviews are always honest and unbias. So with that behind us let’s get into it.

As you can see this club is full of goodies and I found an assortment of nice cigars inside. The package wasn’t as nice as other cigar clubs but none the less they were safe and sound with no damage done during shipping to it’s contents.

As you can see above the monthly club has various packages which vary the satisfy your monthly cigar allowance. I can say that the selection is pretty nice so you’ll definitely get your moneys worth.

This is a close-up of what I received so as you can see it truly is a pretty nice selection.

Should you join? Well I’ll leave that up to you. If you’d like more information they can be found at https://www.gothamcigars.com/cigar-club/
