  • Despite its significant and continuing decline, Denmark remains a niche market for cigars and cigarillos. Cigars sales were down in 2019 and 2020 is set to see a further fall prompted by a rise in excise tax while the impact of COVID-19 pandemic is expected to bring mixed blessings.
  • Denmark levies both a specific and an ad valorem excise duty on cigars and cigarillos, along with the general value added tax, which is applied at the nominal rate of 25%.
  • Data for 2019 gives the Netherlands as the most important source of imports with 84.7% of volumes. Someway behind in second place is Germany with 12.2% of imports, although Germany has recently had a much higher profile.
