Did you know that the highest-rated cigar in the last 26 years received a 97 rating?  This happened 4 times and only one of the four is Cuban; we have the other three!!!   In the same time period, 10 cigars received a 96 rating; only two are Cuban and we have the other eight!  Likewise, we have most of the 95 rated cigars.  For a discussion of the top all-time best/highest-rated brands, see the section 'Cigars' and subsection 'High-Rated'.

We are open for take-out, curbside and delivery service.  We will, however, allow up to two customers at a time into our shop.  We have a variety of disinfectants available for in shop use. 
Be kind to others, your family and yourself by following reasonable social distancing practices and washing your hands like lives depend on it.
