Aloha and welcome!
The Hawaii Cigar Association mission is very simple. We are a collective group of business owners, and consumers in Hawaii who both enjoy the pleasures of premium cigars, and who are dedicated to preserving the right to enjoy one of nature’s finest gifts. Premium cigars as we define them are cigars that are made entirely by hand of all natural tobacco leaf, hand-constucted and hand-wrapped, with no filter or artificial flavors, wholesaling for $2 or more per cigar, and weighing more than four pounds per one thousand cigars. In other words, these traditional cigars are made for adults. And, they will no longer be confused with the candy and fruit flavored tobacco products targeting our youth.
Whether it be at social events, or through public advocacy , the Hawaii Cigar Association is an exclusive group that only welcomes like minded individuals. All members will share our concerns, opinions, and political goals.
Integrity has no need of rules. ~Albert Camus
I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward. It is not so desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right. ~Henry David Thoreau
The Hawaii Cigar Association also serves as a link to other cigar associations around the world. Through these groups we are connected to an extended family of growers, manufacturers, retailers, consumers, and like minded individuals.
