Gurkha Cellar Reserve 

Rated 97 by Cigar Journal, Top 10 Cigar of the Year

The Vintage Cellar Reserve uses the finest quality 15-year-old aged tobacco, comprised of an oily Criollo 1998 wrapper, that combines an aged Dominican olor binder with a 15-year-old Dominican filler. Housed in unique wooden boxes that aesthetically evoke a maturing wine barrel, the Cellar Reserve is a delicious medium to full-bodied cigar that is full of flavor and complexity. 



The Classic Cigar: Havana Blend

The Classic Cigar: Havana Blend has been perfected using a proprietary binder and filler with twenty different changes of the blend just to get it right. With a San Andres Wrapper, the Classic Cigar: Havana Blend is a box-pressed, medium body, full-flavor cigar including earthy, nutty undertones made in Nicaragua. 

"After a few years of searching for the right wrapper and combination of tobaccos, we created this beautiful San Andres wrapped Nicaraguan masterpiece. We are very proud to unveil it as our best creation from East India Trading Company yet. A cigar worthy of its name: A true Classic, said Juan Lopez, National Sales Director and part of the East India blending team.

Nestled within the rolling landscape of oak trees, the vineyards are small, potent, and exquisite. The westside Paso Robles coastal estate takes full advantage of the excellent natural conditions: the mountainous terroir is known for its rocky, calcareous soil, and differing levels of hillside sun exposure allow vineyards to be specifically sites for each varietal. 

This gives founding vintner, Michael Gill, the opportunity to cultivate luxurious wines unmatched in quality. Inspired by the historicism and beauty of illustrious French hunting lodges, the tasting room inspires images of time gone by. Nestled in the midst of surrounding vineyards and centuries-old oaks, it evokes a classicism and undulgence often unfound in Paso Robles.

MF LBijouMy Father Le Bijou 1922

#1 Cigar of 2015, Rated 97

"It takes a profound understanding of cigar tobaccos to create a smoke that conveys uncanny impressions of dark chocolate-covered raisins, savory leather and a sweet-and-salty finish that resonates on the palate. This cigar has an ideal combination of power and finesse to make it No. 1" 

FlordelasAntillasFlor de las Antillas

#1 Cigar of 2012, Rated 96

"The smokes are delicious from first puff, with notes of nutmeg, white pepper and just enough strength without being overpowering. They are hard to put down. They are classics, 96-point smokes on our 100-point scale."

Meet the new PADRON DAMASO

padron damaso 02The Damaso line of cigars is for those who seek the quality and consistency of Padron in a milder taste profile.

The cigar was named in honor of Jose O. Padron's grandfather Damaso, who was the first Padron to arrive in Cuba from the Canary Islands sometime in the late 1800's. "Islenos", or Canary Islanders, were serious people who kept their word and tended to work in farming. In this tradition, Damaso rented a small piece of land in Pinar del Rio and started growing tobacco, giving the Padron family their beginning in the tobacco industry.


padron 1926Rated 97 by Cigar Aficionado

Rated 97 by Cigar Aficionado: "This is perhaps the finest of the line, just blossoming with flavor right from the first puff. It's a complex smoke with perfect balance, showing flavors of chocolate, coffee and nuts, as well as some black cherry.

The award-winning Padron 1926 Serie premiered in 2002 to commemorate Jose O. Padron's 75th birthday. Today, five-sizes are available in both natural and maduro wrapper. Continuing our tradition, this series is offered in a box-pressed format offering refined tobacco aged five to ten years, then blended to -create an exceptionally smooth, complex, balanced and full-bodied flavor. For protection, a double band with an individually numbered guarantee label is applied to every cigar to safeguard against counterfeiting.
