I have been smoking Cigars for more the 30 years and have been to far to many "Cigar Lounges and Shops". I would be remiss if I said all were the same. I would also a liar. We have all found that really great spot, the lounge that fits "US" like a glove.
Well this one is mine... The people running the shops were not to busy socializing with the friends and regulars, and they really do care to give you proper attention. I walked in to this place for the first time on a Friday afternoon and the people there were very polite, NOT overly enthusiastic to sell you what ever the vendors are pushing, but rather spoke to me like I was a friend. I was impressed right away when I said I was celebrating and was looking to treat myself. NO Suggesting this or that. I picked my Inch by E.P. Carrillo and 1875 by R&J, then I saw some cigars on a table (My Fathers Cigar) and casually asked how they were. He took a minute to see what I had already picked then proceeded to explain, well not as spicy as the inch, and just as smooth as the 1875 but a hair tastier.
I am smoking the My Fathers Cigar, right now and it is exactly as expected, he had explained the cigar in terms that any cigar smoker could understand. Not the usual Aficionado lingo that like all "standard measures" that truly differ person to person just as the flavor of clove, anise or some other spice will be to other readers.. A personal preference.
Now if you made it this far, this is what you were looking for.
Selection: Exceptionally Variety, deep and broad
Price: Very reasonable we all know what cigars cost + or - $1.00 per stick
Knowledge: Again very good
Location: Quite, in the evenings, busy and traffic noise during the day
Friendliness: Again very good
I hope you enjoyed the read and get a chance to find out for yourself.
