About Our High Rated Cigars

We have about 600 different premium cigars in stock, including all 16 cigars EVER rated 96 and higher by CIGAR AFICIONADO (legal for sale).  We stock a large selection of humidors and cigar accessories.  [We also offer a wide range of quality pipe tobacco, pipes and pipe accessories.  (We do NOT sell cigarettes, chew, or e-cigarettes.)]

Cuban cigars can not be sold within the USA due to copyright infringement law.  But it is noteworthy that the last seven '#1 Cigar-of-the-Year' chosen by CIGAR AFICIONADO are NOT Cubans!  In fact, since 2001, only 14.5% of 95 and higher rated cigars are Cuban; we have the rest!!
