Cigar Aficionado’s Big Smokes Sell Out

The Big Smokes have sold out. There are no tickets left for either of Cigar Aficionado magazine’s signature consumer events, which begin this weekend.

On October 30, 1,800 cigar lovers will come to Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest, taking place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. There will be a wide variety of whiskies and an exceptional selection of handmade cigars. 

The good life celebration continues on November 5 and 6, where some 3,000 people will attend the Big Smoke Las Vegas weekend at the Mirage Hotel & Casino, enjoying fine cigars and a host of top-tier spirits and drinks. 

Each event features some of the world’s biggest names in the cigar business talking about their brands at educational cigar seminars. Such cigar industry stars as Jorge Padrón, Rocky Patel, Carlos Fuente Jr., Litto Gomez and many more will be in attendance.

Industry veteran Ernesto Perez-Carrillo will be presenting his E.P. Carrillo Pledge Encore at the seminars for both shows, sharing his 98-point-rated Cigar of the Year with the eager audience.

Cigar Aficionado plans to return to Florida and Las Vegas with shows in 2022. To stay abreast of future Big Smokes, visit cigaraficionado.com.
