Fodor's Review

A peek at the intently focused cigar rollers through the giant windows doesn't prepare you for the rich pungent scent that jolts your senses as you step inside the store. Many of the workers at this once family-owned business date back three generations, as they learned their trade in prerevolutionary Cuba. Today the tobacco leaf they use comes from Cuban seeds grown in the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Nicaragua. A walk-in humidor has many brands of full-bodied cigars with varying blends of tobacco favored by customers such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Clinton, Robert De Niro, and Bill Cosby. La Gloria Cubana is El Credito Cigar Factory's signature brand, available in 23 sizes. Free informational tours are available weekdays.
