About CigarScore

We are cigar smokers and we created CigarScore.com for cigar smokers.

First off, we're a small business with big goals. Our website, forums, and email systems have all been designed, created, and built by a team of fewer than five people. Here's our story…

In the spring of 2018, Ellory (our founder) and his wife, Ashley, packed up their stuff to travel the country. And as they traveled, Ellory was always in search of cigar lounges where he could buy and smoke a premium cigar.

To find places where he could smoke cigars, Ellory turned to Google and Google Maps.

While those tools will give you information all about cigars, they don't do a great job of helping you find a place to smoke them. So, to solve this problem and help all traveling aficionados find a cigar lounge or a cigar-friendly bar, restaurant, patio, or porch, Ellory, a serial entrepreneur, created CigarScore.com.

If you've ever wondered where to smoke cigars or where you can enjoy your next premium, hand-rolled afternoon of enjoyment, stick around – we think you'll enjoy what you find here. All of our listings have been 100% human-verified. That means no spam or fake listings here. And, not all places who sell cigars will qualify to get listed on CigarScore.com.

And, after years of hard work, we can officially say that CigarScore.com is the largest directory of cigar lounges in the world!

Since we launched CigarScore.com in 2018, we've grown to over 212,124 unique users all over the world, 90% of whom are in the United States. In 2019, we launched CigarScore TV on YouTube, and have thousands of subscribers on our email list.

Finally, we know not all cigar lounges are created equal. We know that just because you can smoke somewhere doesn't mean you'll want to.

That's why we created the CigarScore – a rating system that puts you, the smoker, in control; a system where you can tell your fellow aficionados in the cigar community where they should smoke and where they should stay away from.

Thanks for using CigarScore.com, and maybe we'll see each other in the humidor someday.

Happy smoking,

Ellory Wells
