Memorial Day - A Time to Remember and Celebrate

Memorial Day honors those who lost their lives while defending their country.

The holiday is observed on the last Monday of May, as weather is turn­ing warm and most schools and universities are adjourning for the summer, establishing Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial beginning of summer.

On that holiday weekend, many people travel to visit friends and family. We gather in groups to celebrate what we have and remember those we lost. BBQ's are thrown, sports games are watched, and sometimes cigars are smoked. Cigar Place has a few cigars you might want to try that celebrate America.

CAO America Landmark, Monument and Potomac Cigars


A tribute to the good ole red, white, and blue, CAO America is a unique dual-wrapped cigar which smokes like a dream. Just as America is called a melting pot, so is CAO America. An extremely unique blend of filler tobacco from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic is paired with tobaccos from Italy as well as America. A spicy Brazilian binder holds it all together. Just as one-of-a-kind as the filler blend is the wrapper. A dual wrapper of Connecticut shade as well as Connecticut broadleaf maduro are utilized to create a barber pole effect. While most list this cigar as a medium-to-full-bodied cigar, the few that we have smoked have resided closer to the medium end of that range.

CAO America has a beautiful band with an American flag design and a secondary blue and gold band around the foot accented with stars and the eagle seal of America. As striking as this presentation is, what really sticks out is the striped effect the two distinct wrapper leaves give. CAO America is a cigar that will make you want to stand up and salute. A unique looking cigar, with a special blend and a fantastic full flavor. Perfect cigar for an all-American BBQ or a great steak dinner. SHOP NOW

Alec Bradley American Classic Cigars


Sometimes it really makes one wonder how someone came up with the name of a cigar, but there's no such mystery with an Alec Bradley American Classic. The front mark relates to it having been specifically designed to recreate the experience of smoking a cigar produced during the heyday of Tampa cigar production in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Much like most of the stogies rolled in Ybor City, this cigar contains a variety of tobaccos from Central America. The filler and binder are succulent, potent leaves from Nicaragua, while the wrapper is a smooth and rich Honduran Connecticut selected for its mellow creaminess. SHOP NOW

Cigars Made in America

The United States has many cigar manufacturers that hand roll cigars. Like J.C. Newman (in Ybor City / Tampa, FL- "cigar capital of the world" in the early 1920's), George Rico (Gran Habano), Don Pepin, Ernesto Padilla, and El Titan de Bronze (rolls for La Palina and Drew Estate in Miami) carefully create small-batch handmades right on American soil. Also, states like Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Florida grow some of the most prized tobacco leaves.
