Muniemaker cigars have been the favorite, all U.S. Connecticut-grown leaf, machine-made cigars for over 120 years. Since the days of the horse drawn trolley, bowler hats and 5 cent beer, Muniemaker cigars have sold millions and millions. When you smoke one you'll know why. They have a consistently mild, smooth peppery, American flavor.
For the last 35 years, FX Smith's Sons manufactured the Muniemaker cigars sold by FD Graves. Recently, Graves' owner retired, taking the brand name with them. FX Smith's Sons will continue selling these same wonderful American tobacco cigars under their Tuscorora line. Muniemaker Longs will be Tuscorora Longs, Muniemaker Brevas will be Tuscorora Breva, Muniemaker Palma will be Tuscorora Palma, and Muniemaker Straight will be Tuscorora Straight. The famous Judges Cave continues as the Smith Perfecto.
These cigars were made in America by Americans for more than a century and a half. Finally, in 2018, onerous regulations closed the American plant and destroyed American jobs. The cigar making machinery was moved to the Dominican Republic. American tobacco is being shipped down there, and the finished product is being shipped back up here. The old factory will be a distribution and shipping center.
