Understanding and meeting consumer needs and expectations drives successful products and customer loyalty.

Consumers are evolving – they are more knowledgeable and want to be listened to. They have particular tastes, which mainly depend on their culture. Making them happy means more return customers, more word-of-mouth, more sales.

Cigar Sense’s mission has been and will continue to be the help to consumers in finding the products that best suit their tastes. We now also help cigar makers and marketers to find the best products that fit their target markets, so they can make the best strategic choices for the benefit of both, their business and consumers. We provide our insights through cigar sensory analysis and consumer fit reports, “what if” analyses, focus groups, surveys and more.
