The thought of premium cigars might bring to mind a Cuban corner shop or a remote factory in Nicaragua or the Dominican Republic. But there is still a destination where you can buy cigars and also see them being made. Because of its proximity to Cuba, Florida has a rich tradition of cigar-making that began in the 1830s in Key West and continued in Tampa’s Ybor City, where you can still see the spires of tobacco towers.

But while these locales may hold the most history, since the 1960s cigar aficionados know to visit Miami’s Little Havana for the best quality cigars from ISOM. Miami’s Eighth Street, known to locals in the Greater Miami area as Calle Ocho, is an enclave of Cuban culture and home to some of the best cigar makers in the US. Here, you can not only find renowned cigars like La Gloria Cubana and Tatuajes, but also watch them being made in the places they originated. 

This list of the top-rated, award-winning, premium cigar stores, as well as some hidden gems, has been mulled and curated by our Web Zafadores. So light up and read on as we answer your burning questions about the best cigar shop in Miami!
