    Default Cigars.... in London?

    Hello Dads....

    Where do you go in London for a good cigar....? I'm not talking about no stinky Old Port or a White Owl... Talking a deep rich fat cigar....

    About once a year, I find reason to enjoy one, maybe at New Year's while my wife is working and I take the dog outside for a walk, or after the birth of a wonderful child, on a relaxing vacation...

    My internet searches are turning up nothing with regards to this...

    There is a great place in Oakville called Celebrity Cigar, not far from the QEW & Trafalger interchange.... It's in a little strip mall, but that guy had a good selection, and he always made great recommendations... Right on the money...

    In Florida at Downtown Disney, I like to browse the Humidor at Sosa, nice selection too...

    Any cigar dads (or moms) out there?

    Thanks Jessica, I've done the googling and such, but I've found that most of them are just convenience stores that advertise that they carry cigars.... I was hoping to find something that was more of a “by appointment only“ sort of place or a place with a walk in humidor, or a store that at least has a limited selection of good cigars....

    Have you ever been to the place I mentioned in Oakville...? If you and your husband like a good cigar, stop by there some time... great selection, and a pretty tidy store...

    When we lived in London a million years ago, and my husband needed cigars for his brother's bachelor party, he went to Channers. I have no idea how great they were, I don't like cigars, but I do know he spent a lot of money.

    Yeah, that' be about right... a good cigar can cost as little as $10 but as much as $100, pending quality, size and demand.

    Thanks Carter's Mom!

    There is one convinience store in westmount mall (i think its still there) but they have a large cigar selection and a huge humidor (spelling?) that they keep them in. My dad is a big cigar smoker and he often buys from there and likes their selection. BUT... westmount mall is quickly fading. I don't know what stores are still there or not.. if it IS there, its at the enterence where the dollar store is.
