While walking in mid-town Manhattan yesterday I stumbled across Martinez Handmade Cigars on W. 29th Street. I would not have thought a factory (small) would still be in the borough. The display case says "Wholesale Only" but the gladly sell single cigars. It isn't a lounge but the one lounge chair was empty so they allowed me to sit with my smoke.
The cigars (I've smoked a different one at home this morning) are solid honest smokes but not fantastic. I've tried two "New York City Blends" and they are good enough that I will happily smoke more. There are no specifics flavor notes but no bad tastes as well. The construction is good.
