A crowd of nearly 4,000 cigar lovers from all across the United States and from as far away as China and Australia came to the desert last weekend for Cigar Aficionado's Big Smoke Las Vegas. Held at The Mirage Hotel and Casino, the sold-out show included two evenings of Big Smokes where guests collected 30 handmade cigars, sampled top-shelf drinks and fine food, and mingled with some of the best-known cigarmakers in the world.

Saturday morning featured a tasting of the number 1, 2 and 3 cigars of 2018, presented by their makers, cigar seminars on a wide range of topics, including Women in Cigars, Power Tobacco and Investing in Cuban Cigars. Lunch featured a Big Smoke first—a game show—and on Sunday the seminars began anew, with a cooking demo, a cigar-rolling competition and a Tequila and mezcal tasting.

The gallery below captures moments from the entire weekend. For more coverage of the 2019 Big Smoke Las Vegas, click here.
