Upstate South Carolina

The focus is on the word UP. This is how you pronounce the word Upstate when talking about South Carolina. When you are in this gorgeous part of The US and you are wanting a cigar, there are two fantastic lounges where you will find a selection like nowhere else. Kartik Shah is the proprietor who provides these two wonderful shops to the good people of The Palmetto State! 

The first is called Boiling Springs Cigars in Boiling Springs, SC, and it is an epicenter for cigars. What you want, they have there.  From classics, to the hottest boutiques,  A full selection of pipes and pipe tobacco is also available. Sit down and make yourself a coffee and stroll through cigar paradise!

Sir Tom’s Cigars and Tobacco Emporium is the other location, which is situated in Spartanburg, SC, not far from the great Clemson University. An old school tobacco shop with tons of charm. The selection here is robust as well. Come by and sit and enjoy a great smoke and some lively conversation with the locals. 

Boiling Springs and Sir Tom’s, The Upstate of South Carolina is in good hands with Capitain Kartik Shah steering the ship!
