Share this page on these sites

Epicurean Cigars was created under the careful eye of Steven Ysidron with its focus on handcrafted small batch salon cigars.  Steven started making cigars in the late 1980's with his father and the Fuente family in the Dominican Republic.  His passion for the long forgotten art of making hand-rolled cigars stems from four generations of his Cuban cigar making heritage that has been reborn in the Epicurean brand.

In 1999, Steven and his family started producing cigars in Nicaragua.  The richness and bold aromas that are characteristic to Nicaraguan tobacco became Steven's preferred filler for creating top quality sticks today.

Steven knows what it takes to blend and create a premium cigar and proudly offers 3 distinct boutique blends culminating his 24 years of industry experience: " AG" Armando Guiterrez Vintage 2007, named after his Cuban grandfather who inspired the brand, Gonzo Vintage 2007 and AG Azul 2008 Vintage.  Only 700 boxes are produced per size per vintage.

All tobaccos have been aged for 4 years after rolled to blend and marinate to perfection.  Steven believes you cannot rush true quality and that this process is the only way to successfully deliver the very best in tobacco flavor.  Whether Epicurean cigars are already on your list of favorite sticks or you are looking forward to trying one soon, these unique blends crafted with Cuban tradition will always leave a lasting impression.
