About Us - Thompson Cigar

Thompson Cigar was founded in Key West, Florida, in 1915 and is the oldest mail order cigar company in the country. In fact, Thompson still holds Postal Permit #1 for Tampa. Thompson Cigar has always been devoted to delivering a wide selection of products covering all price ranges and tastes. The various Thompson private label cigars reflect our keen desire to provide to you the finest cigars at a fraction of what a comparable national brand would cost.

To help in your cigar buying decision process, our call center is manned by 200 trained professionals ready to provide personalized customer service. Some of our representatives have been with Thompson for over 20 years; their knowledge is unmatched in the industry. If you have a question about a cigar, whether it's one of our own house brands or a national brand, we can help.

To ensure that the product we ship to you is as fresh the day we received it, the Thompson Cigar Company operates the largest inventory storage humidor in the United States - over 300,000 cubic feet of storage space. No need to wonder whether or not the cigar you're buying has been lying around some hot and dry warehouse.

Our on-site retail store has been called the best-kept secret in Tampa! It's open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m and carries the same fine inventory available through our catalog and web site, as well as all the accessories In addition, we often have daily specials with amazing discount prices available only here!

    As a relatively novice cigar smoker I have taken the first step in protecting my investments by getting an entry level humidor. I enjoy Punch, Padron and Rocky Patel however, I purchase 10 to 15 cigars at a time and they all come individually wrapped in cellophane wrappers. When I put them in the humidor should I be removing these wrappers?

    It is your choice to keep them in the cello or not. Humidity can go through the cello. The cello is used to help protect the cigar from damage when moving them around.
