Stogies in the D

Anyone know where I can find a good cigar store in Metro Detroit? Preferably one that has good prices on on a box of cigars – preferably ACID brand. I’ve been to a few tobacconists in Livonia but have been pretty unimpressed with the selection and service. I’m willing to travel anywhere in the Metro Area. I’d rather buy cigars from a local store than from an online outlet – you know, support my neighbors.

Note: this has nothing to do with the Tigers, but if we get into the World Series, then maybe :)
Note 2: You may not know this, but Detroit used to be the premier place for cigar making around the turn of the century: see The Detroit News History Page

    not that i smoke cigars or know anything about them but there is a shop buy my house (which i now believe is part of a chain) called Hill & Hill which has a large sign in their window advertising “LEGAL CUBANS!” the one by me is on Mack Avenue in Grosse Pointe. maybe this will help.

    Go international! Windsor has 1 or 2 cigar shops just across the tunnel in downtown. I wish I could give you the street locales but I can’t remember, I am sure you can look it up.

    Don’t forget to declare your items at the border! Bring your passport to make the trip that much smoother. Bring some friends to share the toll.

    It sounds like a lot of work, but really it is very convenient to get over there! Plus its a ton o fun and you can tell people you were out of the country for the afternoon.

    You’re probably not going to find the trendy brands of cigars at a “good” cigar store but a couple that are frequented by real cigar smokers:

    JR Cigar on Northwestern Highway
    http://www.jrdetroit.com/

    Maison Edwards Tobaconist
    11 Nickels Arc
    Ann Arbor (734) 662-4145

    If you’re after the trendy brands you might try ordering them directly from the manufacturer.

    Oh, and beware of the places right across the border selling “cubans”. Often they’re counterfeit or sub-par brands.

    Also, it’s illegal to bring cuban cigars back over the border so I wouldn’t be declaring my cubanos unless you want to do the naked froggie hop.
