Location: Average
Schuylerville NY isn’t exactly a hot bed of activity but it’s 9 miles east of Saratoga Springs so if you don’t feel like being in Saratoga it is worth the visit.

Staff: Exceptional
So far only Nate works there. He is a great guy and is well known in the area. He is knowledgeable and will give you some recommendations should you require that.

Stock: Above Average
For a brand new shop he is carrying some nice cigars and has a nice selection. He has Perdomo, Kristoff, DiFazio, Brittania, etc. I am forgetting some I know. He has cabinet humidors instead of a walk in. I think it looks pretty cool and old fashioned which is what he said he is going for. He said he also feels he can control the humidity better that way.

Lounge: Above Average
Nice big lounge. Free Wifi. They had a bar counter (no booze just bar stools) you can sit at. They also have a pretty large seating area, with a small flat screen TV, complimentary water, soda, or coffee.

Overall Opinion: Above Average
Overall I think it’s a really nice place. It’s very relaxing to just sit there and chill. The chairs were old school leather wingbacks, hardwood floors with throw rugs. I was very happy to have stopped there. His website is not up yet but will be soon. I would go back for sure. If you are ever in the area I would say it’s worth the trip.

  1. Hi Nate, I reviewed the photos of your shop online I loved every piece of it: layout, simplicity, classy display cabinets, color, and the touch of the old west. I spoke to Lisa and she referred me to view pictures of your shop. Since I’m planning to start a cigar shop in southern Arizona and would like some ideas and some general recommendations if possible. Would that be O.K if I call you?
    Congratulation and best of luck

  2. Nate, I dont know if you remeber me. I was a customer in the saratoga shop you worked in. You were the only one I liked talking to because you really knew your info. on a good stoggy. My freinds Wade and Ned and a couple others have been coming. I have heard nothing but the best about your new shop. I am so excited about coming and seeing it and having a cigar with the boys there. We are coming tomorrow afternoon. Anyway glad to hear that someone is willing to do a cigar shop the right way. Will def. be a life long customer!!! =) Already pleased and havent even come in yet. Trust me, us boys get around trying out all kinds of shops to find the best. We may have found a new oasi ……in a dying world of cigars lounges!!
