Plumes of aromatic smoke waft through Good Karma Cigar’s 4,000-square-foot storefront and lounge, where hand-rolled stogies await the jaws of cigar cutters within wrappers and wooden boxes. Aficionados on staff curate and update the fragrant selection with boutique cigars by brands such as Viaje, Illusione, Curivari, and El Triunfador. Specialty cigars recline in humidors, including Dos Capas by Montana Azul, folded by artisanal rollers who apprentice for years by wrapping mummies. Others, such as the Jesus Fuego, prioritize the smooth flavor admired by connoisseurs, carefully monitoring quality by culling tobacco leaves grown specifically for the brand. After navigating shelves of cigars, humidors, and cutters, shoppers can kick back, sample their purchase, and summon the ghost of George Burns in a smoking lounge.
