One of the traditional pleasures of both the VIP and the bachelor is the indulgence in fine tobaccos, whether in cigars or pipes. But, governments being what they are, voracious consumers of consumer taxes and legislators of morality for the majority, seek to make such individual pleasures both a source of bureaucratic revenue and personal remorse for those who indulge.
Depending upon where you live, your purchase of fine pipe tobaccos and/or cigars can come at an outrageous price with the addition of tobacco taxes and restrictions on even outdoor smoking.
While there isn’t much you can do to fight legislation governing where you can smoke, you can at least indulge at reasonable prices by purchasing your tobacco of choice from reputable dealers on the internet.
For the VIP bachelor who wishes to pay homage to Rudyard Kipling’s observation that “a woman is only a woman but a good cigar’s a smoke,” get your good cigars at FAMOUS SMOKE SHOP

FDA deeming regulations could eliminate many cigar brands and pipe tobaccos, although nothing is yet written in federal stone. If you have a favorite brand, now would be a good time to stock up.
