Arturo Fuente Añejo


Ashton Cabinet Pyramid


Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto 

One of the world’s most rare cigars, the Añejo cigar is rolled with the very best Dominican filler and binder from Chateau de la Fuente, then adds a 5-year-old Connecticut maduro wrapper aged in a Cognac barrel. This blend yields a rich, spicy, slightly sweet smoke and the unique aging process leaves a distinct finish.

 Typically only available at Father’s Day and Christmas, this cigar is one of the most exclusive cigars in the world today.

  Ashton took their time developing this well-made flavorful cigar. With solid flavors of pepper and nuts, and a nice creamy character this is a favorite of many smokers. The Cabinet Selection has Dominican filler and binder and a beautiful Connecticut Shade wrapper.   The Ashton Heritage Puro Sol is a cigar steeped in the tradition and honor of two legendary cigar families, the Fuentes and Meerapfels. Its story is one of extraordinary uniqueness. It bears the name Puro Sol because the wrapper, filler and binder are made from 100% sun grown tobaccos. This exquisite cigar marks the first time a Cameroon wrapper has surrounded an Ashton blend and the results are stunning. With the marriage of the Fuente Family craftsmanship in blending and manufacturing and the African Cameroon wrapper hand selected by Richard Meerapfel, the Ashton Heritage Puro Sol is destined for a place in cigar history, and rightly so.

Ashton VSG Corona Gorda


AVO Domaine 50


Coronado by La Flor

The new VSG is unique to the Ashton line because of its full bodied flavor and strength. Created and blended by Carlos Fuente Jr., the VSG's Ecuador wrapper is grown on virgin soil and uses only the top primings of the tobacco plant to achieve its strength in flavor. The binder and filler are aged Dominican tobaccos grown by the Fuentes. This is a cigar that departs from the mild to medium flavors associated with the Ashton line and introduces a new dimension to the brand. The VSG has the kick of a mule!   The Domaine AVO series of cigars was created especially for connoisseurs and enthusiasts who know how to enjoy cigars with a rich flavour. Cigars which carry conviction by their form, taste and origin, and which delight the senses.The exquisite AVO cigars are made from selected tobaccos, kept in store until they are fully mature. These contain a large proportion of a specially fermented, matured Piloto Cubano tobacco from the Dominican Republic.The binder leaf is best Olor tobacco from the Villa Gonzalez region, and a Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf provides the perfect finishing touch to the AVO cigars.   The Coronado is our first line of cigars, wrapped in Habano Sun-Grown Nicaraguan leafs. The filler is a blend of Dominican Sumatra and Piloto Cubano; the binder is Dominican Corojo, both in our farm in La Canela.

Davidoff Grand Cru #3


Davidoff Millenium Blend


Diamond Crown Maximus

In 1990, Zino Davidoff launched his Dominican Republic line of cigars after he and Cubatabaco decided to end their relationship. The Grand Cru series replaces the former Cuban made Chateaux Series. The Grand Cru No. 3 is a rich, full bodied cigar with impeccable construction and a unique, complex flavor and bouquet.   Davidoff Millennium Blend cigars are the most powerful and limited cigars of the entire Davidoff line. A special blend of full-bodied Dominican tobaccos and sun-grown wrapper from Ecuador were selected for the Davidoff Millennium Blend. Like all Davidoff cigars, the quality of the cigar’s construction is impeccable.

 With its generous ring gauge and compact, relatively short format, the Robusto is a cigar that is true to its name. Rich in content, it offers a truly excellent smoke characterised by a full, mature flavour. The ideal cigar in a popular format for serious smokers.

  From its especially rich El Bajo Sungrown wrapper harvested on the Oliva family`s Ecuador plantation, to its superb Fuente-style craftsmanship, to its highly unique packaging and presentation, there has never been a cigar like Diamond Crown Maximus...ever! It has taken Carlos Fuente Jr. more than 3 years to develop this complex, fuller-bodied taste - but it was worth the wait. Despite its rich, dark Ecuador wrapper, Diamond Crown Maximus is not a maduro cigar. The richest, hardiest and darkest tobacco that Carlos selects for Maximus comes from the top corona priming of the plant - and its availability is extremely limited.

El Rico Habano Classic


Fuente Fuente OpusX


H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon

In 1970, Cigar Master Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Sr. created El Rico Habano, the first line of cigars rolled at his factory in Miami`s Little Havana section. The reaction to this full-bodied smoke was terrific, and El Rico Habano became a sought-after selection among seasoned smokers. Although a tobacco shortage in 1994 forced El Rico Habano to cease production, it was re-introduced by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. in 2001 upon the return of Nicaragua's superb tobacco crop. Today, `The Rich One` is back in its original full-bodied taste and strength.   Legendary Fuente Fuente OpusX is consistently named the world's most sought-after cigar brand by Cigar Aficionado and is the culmination of the Fuente family's 100-year tradition of cigar-making excellence.

 The secret of Fuente Fuente OpusX is the cigar's exquisite, silken Rosado wrapper leaves that are grown of the Fuente family's renowned organic tobacco plantation, Chateau de le Fuente, which is located in a remote, tropical river valley in the Dominican Republic.

  The name recalls distinguished quality and the finest flavor of old Havana premium cigars.

For more than a century and a half, H.Upmann has come readily to the lips of cigar connoisseurs. Today, the legend lives on in the rich, smooth satisfaction of handmade cigars that are unmistakably H. Upmann.

It`s what the legend is made of, known all over as the smoking pleasure that is uniquely H. Upmann.

La Aurora 1495


La Aurora Classic


La Flor Dominicana Ligero

The 1495 line of cigars was created to celebrate the founding of the city of La Aurora's birth, Santiago de los Caballeros. Combining five types of leaf from four different countries achieves a complexity that few other cigars achieve. The 1495 utilizes an Ecuadorian Sumatra sun-grown wrapper, and Dominican corojo binder. A blend of Dominican piloto cubano and Nicaraguan and Peruvian ligero leaves makes up the filler. Each leaf brings its own set of flavors to this table, and these aremasterfully blended in this cigar.   La Aurora is the oldest cigar made in the Dominican Republic grown in the same fields of the Cibao Valley for over 3 generations. In fact, La Auroras are like a national treasure down there - its the best selling brand within the country. Those who have discovered this brand know it as a smooth and mild steady workhorse of a cigar - always dependable and delicious. La Aurora has been using Dominican-grown leaves from the same fields in the Cibao Valley region for over three generations - a testament to its consistency.

  These cigars are the latest from Litto Gomez and La Flor Dominicana.

They are named for the strain of leaf called "ligero," which is a strong and peppery type of tobacco coming from the top leaves. As you might imagine from the name, La Flor Dominicana’s Ligero series is a strong, spicy and full-bodied smoke. This is one of three different styles within the La Flor Dominicana Ligero brand.

Macanudo Café Duke of York


Onyx Reserve Mini-Belicoso


Partagas Benji Menendez Master Series

Every time you light up a Macanudo, you can count on enjoying the same relaxing experience, for this is the cigar that always delivers the same distinctively smooth, mellow taste.

Produced today in the Dominican Republic as well as in Jamaica, Macanudos are made with a flavorful Dominican blend and a select binder grown in the rich San Andrés Tuxtla Valley of Mexico.

To assure you of the same smoothness in cigar after cigar, only the makers of Macanudo spend the time and effort it takes to grow, cure and age their own Connecticut Shade, the most sought-after tobacco for premium cigar wrappers. In addition, only the makers of Macanudo age all of their tobaccos twice, just as it used to be done in Havana during the golden age of Cuban cigars.

  A highly rated line of box pressed maduros, the Onyx Reserve line is medium bodied with a long, sweet finish.

  An extra aging process in the fermentation of the wrapper gives this cigar its blackened appearance, a toasty aroma, and a finish that is sweet.  

  Finally, from one of the foremost tobacco experts behind the scenes of General Cigar and Tabacalera de Espana comes a masterful, well blended cigar filled with flavor. Benji Menendez has crafted a masterpiece, bearing his signature on the label, that is truly one of the best Dominican Partagas available today.This limited edition, only 5,000 boxes will be released, is a must try before they disappear.

Partagas No. 8 Maduro


 Partagas Black Label Maximo


Partagas Spanish Rosado

The secret of today’s rich Partagas cigars lies in their wrapper leaves. Grown in Cameroon, the Central West African country where the steaming, sub-tropical climate unique to the fourth parallel is ideal for growing superb wrapper leaves, the Cameroon wrapper has no equal for rich flavor. Indeed, Ramón Cifuentes determined that he could begin producing his Partagas cigars again only after he had discovered, years after the Cuban embargo had begun, that the best wrapper leaves were being grown in Cameroon rather than Cuba. The result is the richest of cigars with a deeply mellow taste.   Partagas Black Label cigars were created by Daniel Nunez for smokers who enjoy a rich full-bodied cigar with a larger ring gauge. In the past decade, Nunez has perfected the Medio Tiempo wrapper and the La Vega Especial binder. Both innovations contribute to the distinct and rewarding flavor of Partagas Black Label cigars.

Since its Cuban seed leaves remain in the fertile fields of the Connecticut River Valley 50% longer than most harvested leaves, the Medio Tiempo ("half time") wrapper is richer, heavier, and darker, boasting a flavorful, woody taste. The Dominican sun-grown La Vega Especial binder, blended with Nicaraguan Ligero and Piloto Cubano Ligero filler leaves, enhances the cigar's big bold taste.



  In developing the Partagas Spanish Rosado, Daniel Nunez searched for a rich taste that is not currently found in any other premium cigar. The search led Daniel to the San Agustin Valley in Honduras.

 Because of the uniqueness of the soil in the San Agustin Valley, the wrapper provides a spicy taste with hints of cinnamon that burns white, leaving a beautiful ash. A Connecticut Broadleaf binder with a blend of Dominican, Honduran and Mexican tobaccos combine to make this medium to full-bodied cigar a must-have for serious cigar smokers.
