A cigar is a sign of opulence, like a toilet full of diamonds or a topiary garden full of toilets full of diamonds. Live the good life with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cigars at Mickey Blake’s in Southington.
Mickey Blake's 4,600-square-foot shop houses a lighter-exhausting selection of cigars, a walk-in humidor, and a public smoking lounge. Tobacco aficionados can snag an Alec Bradley Tempus Terra Novo cigar with dark, bold flavors ($8.99) or admire the cylindrical form and parallel-parking ability of the Ashton Cabinet Reserve No. 6, aged to create a smooth, creamy finish ($14.99). Puff rings from a Mickey Blake’s custom house blend ($1.99+) or explore the complex taste of a Padron Anniversary Series Monarca ($18.99). Customers can smoke their stogie purchases in the public smoking lounge, bedecked with leather couches, high-definition televisions, and elderly comedians waiting to roast something.
