After 25 years of serving the Florida Keys, Key Largo's Island Smoke Shop has recently renovated and expanded our famous Key Largo store under the new management of Cesar Cuenca. What's so great about that? More smoking lounges, lockers, and of course we're still the LARGEST CIGAR SHOP in the Florida Keys!
Cigar smokers are visiting us from all over the world, just to browse one of the best selections of premium cigar and accessories anywhere - all at discount prices.
We're pretty proud of what we've done with our original little cigar shop. Add this one to your tour-books if you ever visit South Florida!
We decided to build a proper walk-in humidor - so large that we'll never again have to make a decision to remove a good cigar from our shelves in favor of a more "popular" brand. There's room for everything now!
As you enter our new store, there appears to be another building inside the main retail space - that's our 1200 sq. ft., climate-controlled walk-in humidor. Its entry is framed by a 12-foot wide, 10-foot tall burlwood arch, with a colorful neon "Cigars" sign. Surrounded by tall windows, you can immediately see the ever-expanding inventory of both popular and hard-to-find cigars inside. Over 1200 sizes and brands of our favorite cigars are currently available - And the list is still growing...
Of course we're still the exclusive factory outlet
for the best-selling EL Original brand - Ranked in SMOKE Magazine's Millenium Issue as the "Top Rated Maduro in the World," as well as the "Best Cigar made in the US". One of the most complex cigars on the world market today, the 6-country blend of the EL Original was developed, and is still manufactured by Santiago Cabana, the famous Master Blender from Havana, and hand-rolled in his tiny factory right here in the US - not in some third-world
sweat-shop. Our rollers (all experienced masters at their craft) take personal pride in every single cigar they make - and it shows.
When you visit South Florida, come on by and visit us at the shop. Relax, and have a cigar in our air-conditioned customer seating area. Smoking is not only allowed in the store - it's encouraged!
The Island Smoke Shop also features a selection of traditional briar pipes, "Specialty" pipes, and a complete line of all your favorite smokin' accessories. If it's a useful accessory, you can bet we've got it!
One of my personal favorites is our selection of antique and vintage ashtrays - both tabletop and floorstand - ranging from the 1920's to modern styles. It's getting hard to find a good ashtray, but we've got 'em all at the Island Smoke Shop! Humidors? You've got to see our Hall of Humidors, including over 20 desk-top models, along with a great collection of modern and vintage cigar art.
The Island Smoke Shop is located at Mile Marker 103.4 in Key Largo's "Pink Plaza,"; 103400 Overseas Highway, Key Largo, FL, 33037. Tel: 305-453-4014. Open 7 days a week, Sunday - Wednesday 10am to 6pm, Thursday - Saturday 10am - 19pm.
