The shop carries its own private label Liborio cigars, hand-rolled and manufactured in the Dominican Republic. They make a unique gift for those interested in Miami’s connection to Cuban and Caribbean history through cigars. Though Cuban cigars are prized for their scarcity, it is actually the Dominican Republic that produces the majority of the world’s premium cigars, outpacing Nicaragua, Honduras, and Cuba. Dominican tobacco—even if grown from Cuban seeds—has a unique taste all its own, thanks to the rich makeup of Dominican soil.

In addition to its house brand, Liborio is known for its array of premium quality cigars and cigarillos, including brands such as Churchill, Arturo Fuente, Macanudo, Cuesta-Rey, and Punch.

For those interested in rolling their own, the shop also has an array of rolling tobacco and papers, as well as pipes and lighters.

If you are interested in learning more about Dominican tobacco and the cigar rolling process, the ladies of Liborio Cigar & Tobacco Shop are experts!
