Cigar aficionados now have a place to enjoy good quality tobacco blends at a great price.

The Tony Santana Boulevard Cigar Store is open for business and serves up coffee, espresso, light refreshments and ready-to-order Italian food that can be delivered right to the cigar bar.

Patrons may expect an inviting atmosphere where owner Josie Weber will hand-cut and light the cigars upon request.

"The best part of the cigar is the finishing, you want to cut the least amount off of the end," she said.

"When the economy went bad, me and my brother wanted to provide our great-quality cigars at a good sale price," she said.

Weber explained that patrons will appreciate that every Santana cigar burns evenly, with a smooth draw and impeccable finish. The added bonus, when patrons purchase 20 cigars, they receive a free custom humidor made of cedar and cherry wood.

A beautiful, walk-in humidor within the cigar bar reveals hand-wrapped cigars, ranging from the vintage reserve to the naturally infused flavors that come in cherry, mint and mango, to name a few.

"We don't spray our tobacco. Everything is infused naturally," Weber said.

Weber's brother Tony Santana, speaking from his home in New Jersey, explained that he opened his cigar factory in the Dominican Republic and, on average, sells about 60,000 cigars every six weeks. "We present an inexpensive, good product. We do this to give people the opportunity to enjoy a good cigar at a good price. It's amazing how many people like smoking cigars," Santana said.

Santana and Weber are 3rd generation American Cubans. Weber moved to Prescott Valley about eight years ago after a long career in law enforcement, some Broadway work and even stand-up comedy. She brings to her establishment a love of sharing her family's heritage.

Weber, like her brother, avidly participates in cigar rolling events and presents her skilled rolling techniques and presentations at weddings, fundraisers and golf events.

"Our cigar rolling events are famous," she said. The Santana patented infusion process is unique and Weber will cater to the customer's palette, whether it's rum, scotch or cognac, for example. "We infuse the cigars at the table, and entertain at the events," she said. It's at these events where the brother-sister team talk about the history of the cigar while entertaining the guests.

"Even celebrities hire us," Weber said.

In addition, the cigar bar soon will feature the Santana line of gourmet coffees.

"The customers are important to us. This is a place where you can relax," Weber said.

 The Tony Santana Boulevard Cigar Store is at 4620 Robert Road, Prescott Valley. Shipping is available. Hours: Monday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Phone: 928-237-4339.
