The Cartel

“Who are you? Where is Loomis?” ~ Random People

How much time do you have? We were asked that question often during our trip to Las Vegas in November 2018. We attended Cigar Aficionado’s Big Smoke Las Vegas. Six of us patrons from Tobacco Republic decided we wanted to see what the show was about. If you haven’t been, we recommend you go.

Three of us from that trip decided that we could convey our enjoyment, limited knowledge, and adventures around cigars and fine spirits. Three became seven. Though we do not claim to be the experts and will NEVER represent as such, we hope that we can help you along on your own cigar journey – as we have been helped along on ours. Over 100 years experience in cigars is at your disposal. Reach out to us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or here on the site, we would love to talk to you.
