If you created the Aging Room Small Batch cigar line, the highest rated boutique cigar brands of our times -- what would you do next? Well, if you are Rafael Nodal from Boutique Blends Cigars, you would combine your three most important passions of your life: Cuba, music and cigars and create a new Classic: La Bohème Cigars. La Bohème is Rafael’s take on the Golden Age of Cuban Cigars. La Bohème is a sophisticated blend of extra aged and hard to find tobaccos from the Dominican Republic. A medium bodied cigar, rich in flavors reminiscent of the island he left thirty five years ago in a small boat with his family. Why wait for the embargo to be lifted? Smoke La Bohème today. BLENDING is in our DNA .

This segment is brought to you by Saga Cigars, maker of the Saga Golden Age Cigar. The Golden Age is a cigar that takes you back to the classic days of cigar smoking. Through the six generations of experience by the Reyes family, the Saga Golden Age delivers a timeless blend that uses the nobility of the tobacco to bring you the perfect balance of power and flavor. It narrates better than words the history of a family's tradition in tobacco, delivering a cigar much like the ones they used to smoke in the times of Hemingway. Saga Golden Age is a full body, full flavor Dominican puro. With tobaccos from one farm, the blend features a Corojo 2006 wrapper and filler from original Cuban seeds grown in the Dominican Republic. Available in four sizes at an affordable price, the Saga Golden Age is sure to please and take you back on a journey to yesteryear.

Cigar Connoisseurs are already raving about this exquisite cigar which pays homage to Christopher Columbus’s discovery of tobacco during his expedition of the New World. This medium to full-bodied cigar shows off the kind of exquisite construction expected by master blender, A.J. Fernandez. This gorgeous box press cigar features a delicious, dark, chocolate Nicaraguan wrapper that houses a blend of Ometepe, Condega and Estelí filler bound with a Jalapa binder. Once lit, the perfectly balanced and refined New World gives off a beautiful billow of smoke and hits you spice and citrus flavors . As you begin to lose yourself in the rich aromas of the New World, flavors become more complex and begin to express hints of hazelnut and coffee. New World is a first time collaboration between A. J. Fernandez and his father Ismael, making this cigar stand out in the AJ Fernandez line. To commemorate the union of father and son, A.J. Fernandez is offering you, this masterpiece at an MSRP of $6, unheard of for a cigar of this caliber. A.J. Fernandez invites you to embark on the journey and smoke what he guarantees to be one of the most talked about cigars of the year, New World - Cigar Journal’s #1 Cigar of the Year.

Visiting New Cigar Shops

  • Support your Brick and Mortar stores! Its important
    • They stand behind the product, so buying them on site means they can service or exchange products there
  • Be pleasent, ask lots of questions
  • How long have you been in business?
  • What are your best selling cigars?
  • Ask about rare or hard to find cigars
  • Ask them what lines they just started carrying
  • If its a lounge and you are staying for a smoke, buy a cigar
  • Check out what other things they carry, for example this one shop carries Benchmade knives, full collection, and they service them on-site. Had I known that, I would have bought my benchmade from them to support the local shops

And by Duran Premium Cigars, one the fastest growing boutique cigar companies, providing smokers a portal into the old Cuban tradition of perfect balance and the lost art of progressive flavor construction. Roberto Pelayo Duran began his career in tobacco over two decades ago in Havana, where his reputation grew within Cuban circles. The creation of Duran Premium Cigars has given Roberto the platform to introduce a series of cigars that offer the same quality, construction, and detail, which he perfect while in Cuba. Brands include the ultra-premium Roberto P. Duran Premium Cigar series, Azan Cigars, Neya, and Baracoa. Duran Cigars uses a “seed to humidor” approach, as all tobacco is grown on their farms and rolled in their factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Rollers have been carefully chosen, to carry out Roberto’s precise method, to insure the progressive flavor in each cigar. Duran Cigars invites you to make their premium, your standard.
