The 2021 Big Smoke Las Vegas weekend was filled with fine cigars, spirits and friends. Thousands of aficionados gathered on the Las Vegas Strip at The Mirage to claim a bounty of handmade cigars, indulge in tasty meals, converse with other cigar lovers and meet the cigarmakers behind some of their favorite brands.

The Friday evening Big Smoke kicked things off, and the Mirage ballroom was filled with plenty of stands handing out fine, handmade cigars and pouring samples of liquor and beer. Saturday morning then moved into seminars that taught the crowd more about the industry and kept everyone up-to-date with brand news, plus, a rum and cigar pairing followed by a lavish lunch and trivia. Finally, we came back to the ballroom for another evening of more cigars, more spirits and more excellent conversation.

Check out the full coverage here and take a look through the gallery below featuring photos of the extravagant weekend:
