Hours of Operation: M-Sat: 10am-10pm
It is on the main street and on my way home from work and I pass it very often, which makes it convenient to stop in for a few more cigars.
The owner works there during all hours of operation. I have become friends with him (he has owned a liquor store for a long time as well) and he always orders any kind of cigar I ask him to get in plus he works with the best POS for Liquor Store tech and I think that’s amazing. Very friendly.
Their stock is not the widest variety since he is still a little new to the business, but there is plenty of room to grow. As I said before, he orders anything I ask for. The humidity and temp are maintained very well. The cigars are always in good condition. The price is similar to anywhere else I go (maybe a little higher for some sticks). He has a big island in the humidor with private boxes that you can purchase (1-time lifetime fee of ~$300) which includes an engraved plaquard and a “golden key”.
No lounge area – I have talked to him about this and there may be one in the future.
Overall Opinion: Above average
The humidor is very high quality with plenty of room to expand. As you probably guessed by the name, he also sells “exotic” beers. You can buy them by the bottle, so those who like to match a beer to the cigar would love this place. I enjoy going there.
