562 Quinta 5ta Avenida Nueva York Midtown Cigar

This retailer is a major provider of fine hand-rolled cigars in Manhattan, selling labels such as El Rey Del Mundo, Partagas, Cohiba, Arturo Fuente, Montecristo, Ashtons and many more. Since Cuban cigars are still subject to the U.S. embargo against Cuba, American customers settle for what they feel are the next best thing: Dominican cigars, which have received increasingly positive reviews over the years.

The salesmen at Midtown Cigar are very helpful to both veteran smokers, and those learning about the differences between each label. Tourists will marvel at the wooden indian statues which seem to be all over the store.

Unlike some cigar shops in New York, which came and went during the American cigar boom of the late 1990s, this shop (previously known as “JR Cigar”) has been serving cigar aficionados for years, and seems to offer very good prices for its smokes.
