  • Romeo y Julieta Reserve

    $67.52$180.00

    Romeo y Julieta Reserve is yet another highly rated edition from this iconic company.

    The Reserve is a successful offering appealing to a more diverse group of smokers. The addition Honduran leaves to selected Nicaraguan fillers and binder changes the body of the cigar for sure. Encasing it with a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper completes the formula. The result is a medium-full bodied taste with a flavor that’s not overpowering to your palate.

    Cigar Aficionado rates this complex smoke a very respectable score of 90 points. Their description is spot on. “Initial puffs of leather and cinnamon segue into a nutty smoke of almonds and marzipan before the warm, toasty finish. Burn and draw are perfect throughout.” With this in mind, if other Romeos are too mild for you, the Reserve is what you’re looking for!

    $71.96$200.59

    Romeo y Julieta 1875 White is one of this renowned company’s best selling cigars…..HANDS DOWN!

    When this original 1875 line was launched it rapidly became one of the country’s top sellers. Over the years Altadis continued adding many more sizes and shapes while achieving consistently high ratings along the way. With attention to detail, this cigar’s blend truly achieves a sweet spot and unanimous acceptance among countless smokers.

    Cigar Aficionado rates this legendary medium bodied cigar a more than respectable 92. Their description is short and sweet and still stands.”This cigar delivers big, chewy notes of nougat, pistachio and almonds fortified with leathery intonations. Rich and elegant.”

  • Primo Del Rey Original

    $62.84$240.16

    There’s a reason why this brand has been around forever. They’re very good cigars! The intricate three country blend has remained eerily consistent over decades. This mellow to medium bodied stick draws well, burns perfectly and has a smooth finish. What it lacks in marketing sizzle it more than makes up for in substance and character.

  • Henry Clay Rustic Cheroot

    $25.00$80.00

    Ok, I’ll admit it. This is one of my personal favorites. Henry Clay has a rich heritage dating back to Cuba. Cigar giant Altadis has done a great job with this old school brand. This complex little guy is wrapped in a near black USA grown Connecticut Broadleaf with a Honduran Broadleaf binder. The Dominican fillers are combined with a rarely used, very powerful Capa Dura Honduran leaf which oddly enough, is a leaf thats grows on the plant after its been harvested. The result is a highly rated medium-full bodied pigtailed powerhouse with a $4 price.

  • Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real

    $88.21$237.33

    Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real is another highly rated offering of this iconic brand.

    When the original 1875 White line was launched it rapidly became one of the country’s top sellers. Shortly after, the Reserva Real series hit the ground running. While this blend upped the flavor to the medium bodied level it remained smooth and balanced with just a hint of spice to liven up your palate.

    As luck would have it, Cigar Aficionado recently rated the Lonsdale size a respectable 91. Their description says it best. Initial notes of dried citrus and vanilla combine on the palate for an orange creamsicle effect. There’s a slightly cedary element as well, making for a bright, sweet cigar that draws and burns evenly.” Not convinced yet? The Porto Real came in at 92!

  • Romeo y Julieta 1875 Nicaragua

    $69.30$180.45

    Romeo y Julieta 1875 Nicaragua is a great example of why this legendary brand retains its top spot in the industry.

    With attention to detail, this great cigar is the creation of the Plasencia factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Arriving in 2018, it surprised a lot of smokers. For starters, unlike many Nicaraguan puros, this one is actually mild to medium bodied. The big difference is it has all the flavor and taste you’d expect from a Romeo without being overpowering.

    FYI, the folks at Blind Man’s Puff rated it a 91. One reviewer describes it perfectly. ” For a mild cigar this one checked off many of the points I like from a fuller bodied and fuller flavored cigar. I feel this is a cigar for almost anyone to enjoy, and look forward to smoking one again soon!”  To put it another way, if you prefer a tamer smoke but don’t want to miss out on the best of what Nicaraguan tobacco has to offer, this one is a must try!

  • Butera Royal Vintage

    $148.05$226.52

    When this cigar was Introduced at the height of the cigar boom in 1993 it represented being the first boutique entry made to date. I remember the hoops I had to jump through to buy them for my stores. As time passed Butera got passed over by the hundreds on new brands and manufacturers since it’s introduction. This still amazing cigar combines six whole leaf tobaccos with a near perfect Connecticut Shade wrapper. The Indonesian binder adds the final magic to create a mild to medium bodied super smooth smoking experience. I heartily recommend at least a five pack of Toros. This cigars unique heritage will give you a real insight into what launched a whole industry within the cigar universe!

  • Montecristo White

    $124.78$469.68

    Montecristo White is one of this long storied company’s most popular cigars.

    When this White banded edition appeared in 2017, an entirely new group of smokers discovered this brand for the first time. Many of those folks that gravitated to mild to mellow tasting cigars now had a Montecristo to call their own. The addition of tamer Nicaraguan fillers with Dominican leaves and encasing it with an Ecuadorian grown Connecticut seed wrapper yields a smooth, lighter smoke with a tiny bit of crispy spice that’s enjoyable for everyone.

    There was no doubt this cigar was a hit as the accolades poured in. When Blind Man’s Puff rated it at 94, they said it best. “Excellent smoke! One of the best mild-medium smoked I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. The rich buttery and vanilla notes that were the backbone of this cigar were thoroughly enjoyable. Only smoke this cigar when you have the time to sit back, relax, and savor a truly high quality cigar. ”

  • Saint Luis Rey Serie G Maduro

    $147.16$188.44

    This brand started in Cuba in 1940 and is still being made there. When Cigar Giant Altadis acquired the name for the US, production went from the Dominican Republic to Honduras where it remains. As time passed the brand began to evolve attracting new smokers. Over 10 years ago the Series G Natural came to market giving folks who enjoy medium bodied cigars a treat that captured the brand’s heritage of rich taste in a slow burning, smooth stick.

    Soon after, the addition of pitch black Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper on this maduro edition raised the needle of the taste meter just a bit more than it’s natural counterpart.

    $252.22$334.08

    Romeo y Julieta Aniversario is a very, very special cigar to say the least.

    You’re definitely a serious shopper if you’re looking at this amazing cigar. In 2003, Altadis reached out to Master Blender Jose Seijas who is a veritable icon of the industry for over 40 years. With attention to detail, his skillful multi country blend of long fillers is encased in a dark Ecuadorian Sumatra seed wrapper. Without a doubt this produces an amazingly complex, smooth tasting medium bodied cigar.
