Best place to get cigars in Charlotte??

I’m assuming the Tinder Box is a the resounding winner?? Would love to give my money to a mom and pop place if I could.

I guess this place doesn’t quite fit “mom & pop”.

TB is going to likely be your best option around here if you want any sort of substantial selection to choose from. Frugal McDoogal has a modest case of cigars as well and aren’t quite as mainstream as TB. I doubt most mom and pop stores can buy enough bulk to undercut someone like the Tinder Box.

The Tinder Box is has a good selection and the guys that work there are pretty helpful. Also, I don’t know if I’d call it a mom and pop place, but they just opened up a second location of Cigars, Etc. at the intersection of Monroe Rd. and Sardis Rd. North. They have a good selection of cigars as well as other… err… smoking devices.

There are a few more places on this map but I have never been to any of them.

Yeah JRs in Statesville is your best bet. Its off exit 52 (i think) on 77. Or you can order online as well. Thats the best place in the area that i’ve found.

Also, look online at Cigarsinternational.com they are good as well.

Since we are on the subject… has anyone bought cigars in Jamaica? I will be down there in a couple of weeks and I was looking to pick up some good Cuban smokes. Unfortunately, from everything I am reading on the web it sounds like almost all of the stuff in Jamaica is fake (even at the resorts). Can anyone speak from experience? Are there any legit cigars down there? I will be in Negril…

What about Cubans? Does anyone know about those? Wink. Wink.

Just looking to get some Arturo Fuente sticks before I go play golf tomorrow. I always would rather give my money to a local business than a chain. Thanks for the help guys.

Mccrainies Pipe and Tobacco off I-77 exit 28 is solid. Great selection of cigars.

Fuente is quality but Aston is my brand. Love Ashtons.

Aston is quality too, was just looking for something smooth to smoke on the course tomorrow.

I’m getting relaxed just thinking about it. On the links, smoking a cigar, how can it get much better?

by adding an ice cold beer into that equation

JR’s in Statesville is about 30 minutes north of the University exit (exit 18). Take I-77 north, get off at Exit 50 and JR’s will be directly across from you at the light.

From the site

Is it legal to buy Cuban Cigars? Yes. There has always been a very large business in selling Cuban Cigars to the US. Recently, the US Dept. of Justice modified its original embargo on Cuban products to allow importation of a limited amount of Cuban cigars when returning from a licensed trip to Cuba. This law, in practice, has been expanded by the public and law enforcement to allow the public to import small amounts of up to 2 boxes of Cuban Cigars for personal use. Although there is no law that outlines the ability for a US resident to import Cuban Cigars, of the tens of thousands of customers that are importing Cuban Cigars into the US, there is no record of anyone every being prosecuted for importing an order for personal use. It has become common place with many customers regularly ordering including movie stars, military personal, and even politicians and law enforcement (trust us we know).

That being said, the US government has shown interest and fined businesses located in the US for openly selling large volumes of Cuban Cigars in public view. Customers running businesses selling in hotels or other private settings such as Casinos have experienced little or no problems.

It is worth noting, we do not recommend bringing Cigars back from trips across the border to Canada or Mexico. The border guards have been looking for individuals bringing back large amounts and have a lot of discretionary power to hassle individuals brining them across, even for personal use. Most people who buy in Canada, ship them home to themselves before they leave, or buy online just to avoid the hassle.

In reality:

Obviously I think it’s a stupid rule, but it’s of note to see what both sides are saying. On one hand, Customs could be letting this practice slide. On the other hand, the site could be bogus. Just passing along information, I honestly don’t know either way.
