  • Diesel Cigars

    Matt Rothschild Extras
    Diesel rocketed up the charts to become one of our best-selling brands. For good reason: the Nicaraguan long fillers covered by a silky PA Broadleaf maduro wrapper produce amazing flavors with a complex spiciness, a testament to the skill of AJ Fernandez. If you haven't tried Diesel yet, now's your chance. I promise you won't be disappointed. …

  • Cuba Libre

    Josh Rothschild Extras
    Cuban-seed Nicaraguan and Honduran long-leaf tobacco – that's all I need to say. This stick comes packed to the brim with full-flavored goodness while the 60-ring gauge produces ample flavor and allows for an effortless draw.

Bold, powerful while elegant and …

Ave Maria is my new favorite - the new standard upon which I judge all others. Now judge it …

  • Nub by Oliva

    Andrew Rothschild Extras
    Loads of flavor in a little package. This guy is the pit bull of the cigar world and must not be underestimated! Great Cuban-esque flavor that yields a medium to full-bodied smoke with notes of leather, spice and wood. For as short as it is, it will last you the better part of an hour if not longer. Give this stubby lovely a try – it's more than worth the sticker price. …
