Cordova Cigars is located on North 9th Ave just a few blocks north of Pensacola Junior College.
Cordova Cigars staff are first rate cigar enthusiasts. They are very knowledgeable about their stock and are very helpful.
Very well stocked, large walk-in humidor (390 square feet). They carry a wide variety of cigars from Acid to Zino and most in between (Punch is under represented though). While no shop can carry everything with over 900 choices you can always find something to your liking. They carry their own brand The Morton Collection; which is an exclusive blend made for them by Camacho. My favorite of this line is Christian’s Cabinet.
They have 3, count’em 3, separate lounge areas. What I call “The Den” has a 47 inch LCD Flat Screen and leather seating. One wall is covered floor to ceiling with framed copies of Cigar Aficionado. On special event nights, this area hosts catered food by Jerry’s Cajun Café (Jerry is a regular and makes the best bread pudding in the world!). The Special event nights are always first class with top level cigar factory owners and personnel in attendance.
The Front room lounge has several Dominos tables and there is always a “Friendly” game waiting.
They also have a 3rd area, a bricked Patio out back. There is plenty of seating out there and because they are located in Sunny North West Florida it can be used 364 days a year. We do get 1 day a year that it gets all the way down to 40 degrees.
Overall Opinion: Nearly Perfect
In my opinion Cordova Cigars is the best B&M in NW Florida. I drive past 3 other cigar shops to get to them. I don’t even refer to it as a cigar store. I call it my club. I started shopping there in October of 2008 and was made to feel welcome as soon as I walked through the door. The staff never talks down to customers & is not over attentive either. While I am a man I have noticed that they have many women customers. This because of way they conduct themselves. Other cigar retailers should take note. They never assume that the “Little Lady” is shopping for their husband or is looking for a flavored cigar. Everyone should be so lucky as to have a Shop like this in their area. If you are ever in Pensacola Florida you should stop by and check them out!
