About Us


It’s an exciting time for Old South Cigar Company as we launch our line of premium fine cigars. Old South Cigars began in 2016 with three close cigar smoking buddies being the inspiration. They passed on their lifelong love of cigars and our memories of many hours spent together enjoying each other with a cigar after a golf game or great dinner. Our love for good cigars transformed into a passion to make each cigar an incredible experience. We spent a year searching and creating the right blends of premium tobacco before we were confident to present our finished cigars to the public.

It was our dedication to this that lead us to bringing on one of the top master rollers from the Dominican Republic, Cesar Espinal. Each of his cigars is hand rolled with the finest Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos which has earned his cigars a 93 rating in Cigar Aficianado. It is our mission to create cigars that are premium smokes but also affordable to our fellow cigar friends. We have done that with our Premium Gold, Premium Black, and Barber Pole. The combination of our passion, an expert master roller, and the highest quality tobacco has brought us to presenting these awesome cigars.

We hope to continue the long tradition of Southern Virginia Tobacco while incorporating the influence of fine Dominican Tobacco. Please enjoy!
