Wednesday evening I stopped into a new shop and lounge in the King of Prussia area outside Philadelphia, PA. Cigar Mojo is a joint venture between father and son, Wade and Trae Roberts. I first met Trae a couple months ago at the Wooden Indian in nearby Havertown, PA. They finally opened for business on Wednesday, so I stopped in to see the place. I’ve been following their progress on their Facebook page with interest, and had been invited to a pre-opening event they held back in early September but was unable to attend. It was worth the wait, the shop is beautiful. They have a large walk-in humidor that has all Spanish Cedar walls and shelves which is in the process of being stocked. They have a large shop area with plenty of room for accessories and some seating. The most impressive part is the lounge. The space is beautifully done with reclining leather chairs and TVs on either end. The lounge is open to patrons during business hours, and they have a membership program that offers 24 hour access. They also have a bank of humidor lockers for members. The membership options are outlined on their website. I’m impressed so far. Wade and Trae are passionate about cigars, and they seem to have the right idea about how to serve their customers. I purchased a couple of the new Saint Luis Rey Gen 2 Toros and enjoyed one of them thoroughly while chatting with Ryan, the local Altadis rep. The SLR was a tasty, medium bodied cigar, very nice. It’s one I’ve been wanting to try but haven’t managed to until it jumped out at me in the humidor. Great combination of flavor, construction and price point (around $6). Both the Saint Luis Rey and Cigar Mojo are highly recommended. The photos don’t do it justice. Click on any picture for a slideshow.
That’s it for this special Friday edition, until the next time,
