Cigars and Bourbon at the Kentucky Derby Twin Cities. It seems like smoking a cigar is as much of a part of the Kentucky Derby as the hats and the bourbon. The Kentucky Derby Twin Cities feels very fortunate to partner with the top rated cigar destination in Minnesota, Perfect Ash.
Why cigars and the Kentucky Derby? Over the years more and more people smoked cigars at Churchill Downs during the down time between races. Racing fans found smoking a cigar to be a great way to pass the time while waiting for the next call to post. There’s something about a joyous occasion that makes you want to kick back with a good bourbon and a fine cigar and just enjoy the moment.
We hope you find a joyous occasion that makes you want to kick back with a good bourbon and a fine cigar and just enjoy the moment.

Drew Estates Undercrown Shade Gordito
A wonderful follow-up to Drew Estate’s enormously popular Undercrown line, the Shade is a lighter bodied offering featuring an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. Accompanying this new leaf is a Sumatran binder and Dominican Criollo, Nicaragua Criollo and Corojo fillers. Upon lighting, you will experience lush and complex flavors of nuts, sweet cream, and toast, with subtle hints of warm spice and honey. Although medium-bodied in strength, those who prefer full body will find the Undercrown Shade equally appealing. Size – 6 x 60
Alec Bradley Post Embargo Toro
Alec Rubin, legendary owner of the famous Alec Bradley Cigar Company decided to stop dwelling on the past on focus on the top-quality tobaccos of today with his exciting Post Embargo brand. Crafted at the renowned Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras, Post Embargo really gives those old Cuban stogies a run for their money by using a prime Honduran wrapper, dual binders from Honduras and Nicaragua, and a blend of the best aged long-fillers found in Nicaragua and Honduras. This medium to full-bodied gem showers the palate with bold flavors of earth, spice, coffee, nuts, and a fair share of creamy sweetness that lingers in the background.
