Cuban Cigar Factory is located in the historic Gas Lamp quarter of San Diego. A very casual ambiance and knowledgeable staff. Upon entering I was a greeted by the classic cigar shop Indian, as well as the General Manger, William Murken, who was pleasant and willing to answer a few of my questions pertaining to the shop.

CCF has been in business since 1995 and carries its own exclusive brand of cigars. Ironically the CCF cabinet happens to be their top selling cigar. Until a few years ago, the shop used to feature hand rollers making their own famous house cigars, after business demand went up, they now produce their private label overseas. They do however still offer cigar rollers for special events, as well as a private VIP room.

They feature a full bar, specializing in fine wine and microbrews, with big screen TVs to catch any sporting event that may be headlining as you puff a nice drag of your favorite cigar in the cozy lounge area.

They do host events in house about every 2 months, and a schedule is available on their website.

All and all a great place to visit for a good smoke and relaxing glass of wine.

    Gerald,I have to agree with you on all points of the rievew. It has been about one year since I smoked the first of three CGRs that I acquired. Yes the cost gave me a long pause before completing the purchase, but I was drawn in part by all of the hype and then more largely by the fact that I really trusted the rievewers who said it was the best they had ever smoked. I understand that some have said that a Siglo VI with a few years on it is as good or possibly better. Respectfully, I submit that they may not have ever had a CGR, so they cannot make such claims. It isn’t something to smoke on the porch where an errant breeze might rush the burn or worse cause it to go crooked. I can only repeat what has already been stated with regard to the flavor profile and the perfection of the burn and draw.As to whether or not it is worth the asking price, I am not a wealthy man, in fact I have been unemployed for more than two years now and I was unemployed when I bought the three CGRs. Nonetheless, when I think of the price of a meal at a fine restaurant, which takes about as long to enjoy and will eventually be flushed from my system without ceremony yet still remembered with the greatest affection, I can say yes because I still have two left. If nothing else, they have received the very best of care in my humidor nestled amongst half a box of Montecristo Sublime LEs. The Montecristos are also among the very best I have ever smoked, but if the CGRs rate a 10 in my book, the Montes are a distant 8.When I next enjoy one for my upcoming October birthday, I hope to be indoors at my favorite cigar bar and I will pair it with a very good cognac. I hope I will be celebrating employment once again also. I just don’t know if I will ever find another cigar in which I will be willing to invest funds better spent elsewhere.I have no remorse.Mason
