About Us

Almonte Tobacconist offers a carefully curated collection of premium cigars from around the globe including the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras, and more. The store’s huge premium cigar collection (more than 10,000 cigars) was hand-selected by Almonte himself as an exhibition of the finest cigars the world has to offer.

Guests can elevate their cigar smoking experience by relaxing in the store’s smoking lounge where fresh, hot Dominican coffee is always served. The lounge, which is equipped with flat panel TVs, a fireplace and free wifi, has plenty of comfortable leather seats and is BYOB friendly. There are also plenty of highly-rated restaurants within walking distance that deliver to the lounge.
