World's Highest Rated Wines on Sale
We offer vintage-library, 95 and higher-rated wines from eight countries and three states. We ship via FedEx, but can not ship wine to the following states: AL, AR, DE, KY, LA, MS, RI, UT and WV..

Our Products & Experience
We have one of the best high-rated cigar selections you will find anywhere. To see a complete list of brands we carry go to section \"Cigar Brands\". Our cigar humidors are checked twice daily to ensure proper humidity, and adjusted as necessary during severe weather conditions to reduce the possibility of osmotic shock. We have over 500 different premium cigars in stock, including 23 of the 24 non-Cuban cigars that since the year 2000 have been rated 95 or higher by CIGAR AFICIONADO magazine; during the same time period only 6 Cuban cigars have been rated 95 or higher. By the way, in the 26 year history of CIGAR AFICIONADO magazine only 3 out of every 1000 cigars have been rated 95 or higher! We stock a large selection of humidors and cigar accessories for sale. (We do NOT sell cigarettes, chew, pipe tobacco, or e-cigarettes.)

Our wine selection is also very noteworthy, whereas we have 95 and higher rated (by WINE SPECTATOR & WINE ENTHUSIAST) wines from 8 countries and California, Oregon and Washington. All our wines are maintained at 57 degrees F and kept in the dark, with bottles sideways.

Our family run business is primarily run and operated by the owner (Rick) who is a retired scientist, university professor and life-long cigar aficionado. Rick claims that he is his own best customer. Rick has been following CIGAR AFICIONADO's published ratings since 1992; our cigar inventory decisions are made based on these ratings and Rick's personal experience. Rick will happily share his knowledge and experience with you in helping you find a perfect gift and/or expanding your own enjoyment and experience. We encourage you to see our customer reviews on Facebook, Google and Yelp.

Smoking Areas & General Info
We have two outdoor weather-protected smoking areas. One of the smoking areas also permits consumption of beer, wine and spirits. We have customer loyalty reward cards, and offer a variety of discounts with the purchase of 10 or more cigars. We look forward to serving you and our resident aficionado is happy to offer as much, or as little, advice as you may want/need.

We Take Protecting Minors Seriously
TRIX are for kids, not cigars. All new customers ordering cigars will be vetted (see below) to ensure that they are of legal age. Doing so is necessary because the US FDA knowingly permits minors to receive cigars via mail order, without the possibility of proof-of-age verification upon delivery (which is forbidden by the US Constitution). First time customers will be sent their order via Fed Express ground, with a 21 and older required signature (flat cost of $15 for cigars only). After the first order, cigars will be shipped via US Priority mail at flat cost of $10. Orders with wine or wine and cigars will always have a label on the package requiring 21+ age verification at the time of delivery.
