“The best cigars out there, period. Every single one I’ve ever had burned perfectly or nearly so, they are always fresh, oily and fragrant, and the blends are imaginative and well balanced. And putting aside quality (always most important, the price puts them right over the top; there are simply no other cigars out there that match the QPR provided by Cortez. By the way, great place to relax and burn through a stick. I’ve never referred someone who’s been disappointed, and many of my friends have become Cortez devotees. Great job guys!”

“Cortez Cigars deserves nothing less than five stars! Not only have I had the pleasure of visiting the shop on two occasions, I was also able to have Cortez provide cigars for my wedding. Lorenzo was super professional, on time, and was a big hit! Every blend i have tried so far has just been better than the last! Looking forward to spending more time in the shop and thank you so much for the awesome showing at my wedding!”

“My company hired Cortez Cigars for a wedding in Red Bank on 11/22 and the guests could’ve been happier. Cortez’s hand rolled cigars are a true work of art and should be offered at every event from networking to corporate affairs and more! Knowledgeable staff, very polite and personable and their cigars are top notch!! Cortez Cigars is the only place I will ever deal with.”

“You guys killed it! My buddy (the groom) and his wife loved it . Huge hit everybody was so impressed with the set up and Cigars etc. I’ll def be giving you guys a top star review and be using you again in the future! Again thanks for everything !”
"First rate experience at private event. I'm spreading the word about this hidden gem! Possibly the best cigar I've ever had personally hand rolled for me. Perfection!"
"Great cigar lounge in a big old home. Plenty of seating. All cigars are rolled by the proprietors. I smoked a medium bodied Dominican puro. Delicious. Tried the Ligero blend today. Flavorful without going over the top. Staff was helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. I’ll be going back!"
"I am a big cigar smoker and stock my cigar room at home with close to a 1,000 cigars of all kinds from Cubans to all the brands you find in a cigar shop. I usually try to find custom hand rolled blends with mixed success. Either quality is poor or price does not match the quality. That is not the case with Cortez. I compare these cigars to the like of Graycliff, HUpman (Cuban), Byron (and if you know Byron cigars this is a high honor), among a few others in terms of taste and burn. The Navesink Fuerte sometimes draw hard but taste great. I usually buy 30-50 of three types at a time to store in my humidor and share with people who know cigars and who have never smoked a Cortez and they never disappoint. I can say that these are my favorite."
