Online purveyor Cigars International’s enormous selection of cigars, accessories, and merchandise has caught the attention of smoke aficionados as well as Lehigh Valley Magazine, which voted the retailer Best Tobacco Shop. Cigar brands such as 5 Vegas Gold, Cohiba, and Gurkha's Park Avenue can be delivered to houses or hobbit holes as singles, samplers, or boxes. The handcrafted Nica Libre maduro-wrapped cigar ($16+ for a pack of five) swaddles the senses with hints of coffee and dark chocolate, lingering on the palate with a peppery finish.
For a larger party, the Maker's Choice 50-pack ($29.95–$39.95) satisfies hordes of smokers with Dominican freehand-rolled puffables. An array of accessories makes ideal gifts for cigar buffs. A Biarritz three-finger cigar ashtray ($19.95) hoists up to three lit cigars or hot-tipped extraterrestrial fingers, and the silver-toned bullet cutter and keychain ($7.95) can core out holes in the ends of cigars to facilitate smoking.
