Lastly, and maybe our favorite way to find the best premium cigars for sale is by asking the cigar aficionado community. And, there's no better place to do that than at your local cigar lounge.

A lot of what we love about discovering new cigars are the stories that come with them. The vacation a buddy took, where he found the most delicious hand-rolls. Or the early release that a member got their hands on and decided to share at the lounge.

But what so many of our members at our in-person cigar lounges love most is hanging out with a great group of people. Members at our lounges are always telling everyone about their latest cigar finds, trading their favorite selections and enjoying the opportunity to meet like-minded people.
