Founded in 1997 Tomtom Cigars has become one of London’s leading cigar merchants. Our shop is at 63 Elizabeth Street, London, SW1. Elizabeth Street runs North-South between Eaton Square and Ebury Street (see map for exact location). To complement our Cigar Shop this part of Belgravia has a very attractive selection of specialist independent shops and restaurants including the Poilâne French Bakery, Philip Treacy Hats, Erickson Beamon Jewelry, The Thomas Cubitt Public House, Oliveto Restaurant and our very own Tomtom Coffee House at 114 Ebury Street.
What to expect
Our aim is to provide the best that comes out of Cuba and can be smoked. Cigar smokers are an eclectic mix, and no more so than the happy souls you will find puffing their favorite smokes in our Belgravia shop. Tomtom's proprietor, Tom Assheton, provides an atmosphere that is relaxed, informed and open to anyone who wants to indulge a taste for real tobacco. We will be opening our cigar tasting room in 2009 where you will be able to enjoy our wide range of Havana Cigars including Cohiba and Montecristo. We also stock all those useful accessories to look after your Cuban smokes including humidors, cigar cutters, Dupont lighters. They also make great gifts and when you want to restore the scent of summer (or winter) to you home we have a huge range of Diptyque candles especially selected for the cigar smoker.
Tomtom has the highest classification from Habanos, the Cuban Cigar Authority, as a Specialist in Havanas (certified Gold). We have all the usual Havana Cigars and a very wide selection of the less available brands. In particular there is an abundance of gorgeous cabinet boxes (containing bundles of 25 and 50 cigars) with irresistible names such as H. Upmann - Connoisseur No 1, Hoyo de Monterrey - Epicure No. 2, Romeo y Julieta - Exhibition No 4, San Luis Rey - Series A, Partagas - Series D No4, Punch - Punch Punch, and of course the spectacular Cohiba - Robusto. At any one time we have Limited Edition Havanas in stock as well as some aged smokes. We believe the magic of a fine, handmade Cuban Cigar can gloriously enhance your mood. Tasting cigars in the shop is a pass time many of our customers enjoy. You can try a smoke from our huge selection of single cigars, which we constantly vary. This kind of ‘research’ will help you make an informed decision about box purchases. In addition we have a fabulous selection of accessories from Elie Bleu humidors, ST Dupont lighters, Davidoff, Dunhill, Tomtom, St Hilaire, David Linley humidors and others. Please have a look in the 'Accessories' section for all the details.
Tasting Cigars at Tomtom
We are one of the few places in the country where you can still smoke in doors. We are recognised by our local council, City of Westminster, as a Havana Specialist. As such our customers are allowed to taste our cigars on the premises at 63 Elizabeth Street. Smoking of cigarettes is not allowed. You can also enjoy a cup of one of our own roast coffees from Tomtom Coffee House. We will be opening our cigar tasting room by the end of 2009.
We are happy to give guidance whether you are a new convert, a well-established aficionado or are searching for that special gift. There are so many varieties available that an appropriate smoke can be found for any person or time of the day. Perhaps a light Hoyo for the morning, a mild Montecristo for after lunch and then a full bodied Cohiba to take to bed. Etiquette is not something we fuss about - but if you want, there is plenty of advice.
Tomtom has received a number of prestigious awards including being voted 'Cigar Retailer of the Year' at the Millennium Cigars awards held in London. Tom Assheton, the proprietor, has also received to coveted 'Silver Chaveta' trophy given annually by Havana importers, Hunters and Frankau, to a UK specialist in Havanas for outstanding contributions to the cigar trade. He was also nominated for Habanos Man of the Year (retail) in 2001 at the annual Cuban awards ceremony held in Havana. We feel the greatest reward has been the support of our established customers, shown to us by them returning time after time. Please dive in and deliver yourself to the unequivocal pleasures of a Havana.
