Graycliff Cigar Company

They may not have the same cachet as Cubans, but the Bahamian cigars hand-rolled at this 18th-century downtown compound (which includes a formal restaurant, wine cellar, and hotel) are every bit as good. Graycliff owner—and longtime cigar enthusiast—Enrico Garzaroli didn’t mess around when he decided to start producing cigars on the property in 1997: he brought on no less than Avelino Lara, the founder of Cohiba, as his partner. The results—consistently high-rated stogies that include both the super-full-bodied Graycliff Espresso line and the candela-wrapped Graycliff Emeralds—are sold in tobacco shops around the world, including Davidoff. But you won’t find a better place to enjoy them than on Graycliff’s palm-shaded porch, especially after a meal and a glass of wine.
