Many men enjoy the occassional cigar.
And if you're one of those men, then you know how much of a hassle it can be to buy that occassional cigar.
If you're lucky, you've got a tobacconist. And if you're even luckier, you'll leave their shop without smelling like an ash tray.
Here to make it easier: Good Cigar Co., a decidedly hip California company that curates custom stogies to fit you taste and then delivers them in a humidity-sealed package that'll keep 'em fresh for months. What's more: each package comes with a cutter, matches and a tasting notes guide.
Available in “Casual,” “Classic,” ”Aficionado” or even more bespoke blends, Good Cigar uses brands like Padron, Oliva, Rocky Patel and Alec Bradley to satisfy orders and also has access to hundreds more both inside and outside of the U.S. to make sure all requests can be met.
