This handsome Inman Park hideaway is no mere cigar shop. Settle into a cushy leather chair with a hand-rolled Dominican cigar in one hand and a samplin' of Laphroig in the other, soak up the pleasant cedar aromas wafting from the humidor, and let your inner Ron Burgundy run free.
While there are about fifty cigar shops in Atlanta, we can state with confidence that Highland Cigar is the only one of its kind. It's part cigar shop, part bar, and part lounge, decked out with a state-of-the-art ventilation system, leather chairs and couches so comfortable you may need a spatula to pry yourself out of them, and one of the best Scotch selections in the city. Best of all? The atmosphere is so warm, friendly, and inclusive, you don't even have to be this guy to partake.
The team at Highland Cigar Co. cite cigars as a classic symbol of victory, celebration, and royalty. But even if you don’t have anything particularly victorious happening in your life, sinking into these leather chairs and puffing on a Padron is enough to make anyone feel pretty darn noble. The folks at Highland Cigar have found that one thing about cigar culture remains universal: "Cigars are one of the few things that force you to slow down and enjoy what you're doing" they tell us. In this case, preferably with a snifter of ten-year-aged single malt Scotch at the ready.
With over 40 gleaming, amber-hued bottles on display behind the bar, Highland Cigar's Scotch selection is, without a doubt, one of the best in Atlanta. (In other words, this guy
would definitely approve.) And you'll get to taste the cream of the crop with a handpicked selection of three smoky, rich, full-bodied varietals: Glenfiddich 12-year (Speyside), Glenmorangie Lasanta 12-year (Highland), and Laphroig 10-year (Islay) . Once you've had a nip of each and get a taste of how they pair with an expertly hand-rolled Dominican cigar. Fear not: whether you're a puff-puff-pro or a total rookie, the staff is trained and highly skilled in the arts of cigar selection and has expertly picked the perfect stick for the occasion. (You'll have to provide your own elbow patches, though.)
