Tenerife cigars are much wanted as gifts or by people that simply love smoking them.

The shop Tabacos Arturo sells them. Some insist on Cuban ones but, Tenerife offers a good alternative.

Besides, best cigars which always come from Cuba are much more expensive than the so called  Puros Tinerfeños  or Puros Canarios, as the locals say in Spanish. Hand made or hecho a mano applies to Arturo's ware.

My pal Guenther Dahmen recommended Tobacco Arturo to me. He's known it since 1972.

The other day, I managed to visit this shop again which is now in a new location.

Casa Rocamar for tabaco by El Charcon Garachico

Notice the new, more prominent and more touristic address of Cigarros Arturo
It's in Avda. Tomé Cano, 8 right opposite the famous, natural pools Caletón or Charcos of Garachico.
In fact, it's next door to the good seafood restaurant Restaurante Rocamar There too, stone steps lead to a high first floor entrance.
Tel: 0034 + 922 133515 or mobile (Spain 0034) 654 28 37 33 and 654 28 37 30

Arturo' s business is marked with a prominent plaque. A life size Tenerife custom dressed Mannequin stands in local custom attire outside his door.

But don't look to critically at the way those cigars are made. I admit it looks rustic.

The shop Tabacos Arturo seems to promote mainly the Macuba brand. However, there were more boxes on top of shelves in the back. We were in a hurry on our day trip to Icod, Masca, San Eugenio beach and Arona.

I tried to find out only the most important.

Yes, the man whose name might be Miguel Angel Jiménez Muñoz because that's what his business card says can sell you hand rolled cigars.

They are much in demand.

The salesman made one for me. I suppose that he can make any shape or virtually any size if the tabaco leaf he pulls out permits. Therefor, no point to show you a photo. For a rather slim pointy cigar he charged me 1 Euro.

Flavored hand rolled cigars

Guenther, once, said that Arturo's shop used to sell cigars with all kinds of flavors. Strawberry or whatever...

My pal just loves hand rolled Tenerife cigars from Tobaccos Arturo and says that's the best shop for it on the island.

I haven't tried the one I bought. A victim needs finding to sample mine. This cigar is called a Caliceño.

To judge by the smell of the tobacco it must be good.

Please, return from Tenerife cigars to shopping in Tenerife.

Mind the new environmental policy which has been turned into an anti smoking law on January 01, 2011 for the whole of Spain which includes all its provinces including Tenerife...

Cigars made in Cuba and Garachico and what about Germany?

Would you believe that there was once a real cigar making industry in Germany?

Ancestors of mine come from there and I remember the fields of the aromatic leaves for smoking from my childhood days. But grand dad would only puff them when made in Cuba. The museum comes as as surprise to me.
