from founder and owner Wendell Holmes
1868 Smoke started out as a private Facebook group
for cigar smoking enthusiasts to discuss and share
a common interest in the culture and lifestyle
surrounding fine cigars, liquor, lounges, and social
events around the county. Soon after the Facebook group
was launched we had grown to over 150
active members engaging in topics and activities
about cigar brands, bourbon & cognacs, social events,
cigar lounges, etc. 1868 Smoke was launched
in November 2021 and the inaugural product is a private
label, mild to medium torpedo-style cigar.
The year 1868 pays homage to the year
Hampton Institute(University) was founded.
What makes this cigar unique is that it is
100% organic, pesticide-free, Dominican blended tobacco
with USA-made wrapper and label.
I hope to somehow merge my company
with my passion for community service
and giving back. . Thank you to
everyone for your support.
