Cigar Stars Align At Cigar Aficionado’s Big Smoke Las Vegas Weekend

Thousands of cigar enthusiasts from all over the world will sojourn to The Mirage Hotel and Casino this Friday for Cigar Aficionado's 20th annual Big Smoke Las Vegas weekend, the largest cigar celebration in the world. And while some will attend for the great parties, food and drink, most are undoubtedly relishing the chance to shake hands with their favorite cigarmakers and light up a premium smoke with them.

Having the opportunity to meet and greet the people behind the cigar brands has always been one of the hallmarks of the Big Smoke Las Vegas weekend. While these moments are likeliest to occur during the Friday and Saturday evenings, a chance encounter with a favorite cigarmaker could also occur in the hotel lobby, the roulette table, or even the patio of Rhumbar.

Like always, a large list of cigarmakers are expected to attend this year's Big Smoke Las Vegas festivities. So whether you're looking forward to meeting Carlos Fuente Jr., or sharing a Bourbon and cigar with Johnathan Drew of Drew Estate, there's no better place than this upcoming weekend's Big Smoke Las Vegas.

To help you spot some of the cigar stars in the crowd, we've collected their headshots in the slideshow below.
