A Deeper Dive into Premium Cigars

Any simple Google search will bring up a multitude of web sites and You Tube channels about premium cigars. While there are some good review sites and excellent channels from manufacturers, the best place to learn about cigars and pipes is Tobacconist University. This is the same site that certifies Retail Tobacconists. You can even become a Certified Consumer Tobacconist!

The book used to study for the Certified Retail Tobacconist exam has been updated and is now available in a nice hardbound edition. We have a copy of The Tobacconist Handbook on hand in the shop! Feel free to peruse our copy on your next visit or read our copy of The Ultimate Cigar Book. You can even get your own version of either book.

Finally, there’s a great interview with the President of Tobacconist University, Jorge Armenteros, in the February 2021 Tobacco Business. Check it out!

BTW - Gary Cruice is a Certified Retail Tobacconist (#2601 since 8 March 2020).
