This Fifth Avenue two-story humidor is a discount cigar smoker’s dream come true. As you walk through the typically tobacconist decor you are greeted with plumes of soft humidity and the requisite, hand-carved tobacco Indians. The selection at JR Cigar is seemingly endless with deals on high-end imports and individual cigars like sweet Partagas. (Buy two boxes get a third for free!) Entry-level Wall Street analysts rub elbows with European tourists and if you sneak downstairs to JR’s selection of knock-off stubs, you might get to venture into the vault. More than just a destination for grooms and fathers-to-be, JR also sells a full selection of ashtrays and cutters so you can take your second-hand smoke home.
