Purchasing Cigars on St Barts

Cuban Cigars - They are indeed available on St Barts.

The top tobacconists are Le Comptoir de Cigar et Panamas in Gustavia (around the corner from Le Select)

There are a couple of other stores in St. Jean: "Jose's" and "Casa de Habana"

Casa Del Habano in St Jean is where I have been buying cigars for a very long time...terrific store... sales clerks who know their product

What cigar would you recommend as a "have to have" while on the island?
Some recommendations from SBHonline forum members:

  • My favorite is the Bolivar Belicosos.
  • small Romeo et Julietta, a #2 or #3.
  • small robusto from montechristo or teh oyo de Monterey are very good/also the Short churchill.
  • Partagas Serie D No.4
  • Romeo and Juliet Cedro Delux #3 and Gloria Cubano #4
  • R&J Short Churchill
  • Monte Petite Edmundo
  • Juan Lopez #2 (really does not get enough attention and is a great value)
  • Hoyo Epicure #2
  • Cohiba Siglo III
  • For my taste and regardless of all the hype and noteriety of the Montecristos and Cohibas, I like the Bolivar Gold Medals. They're similar to a Monte at a lower price. A fine, spicey medium bodied good looking smoke. Although I have been known to partake of a Cohiba if one presents itself."
