FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
Located in the center of Downtown Merced, “The Monkey” opened in 2004, and has grown to become a landmark in the Downtown scene, as well as many events throughout the northern San Joaquin Valley..
From humble beginnings, we have worked hard at becoming purveyors of the finest cigars at the best prices. We also provide the best available today in:
-Cigar Accessories , – Lighters, – Cutters, – Humidors, – Pipes
– Pipe Tobaccos (including many of our own unique blends)
Prices are good, selection is great! The people there are always helpful. Literally the most helpful cigar shop I have ever been to. On top of that they must have at least 150 different cigars, everyone is picked by the owners. Well priced. Rocky Patels range from $9-$13 for example.
The staff at Cigar Monkey are very helpful and take the time to guide you in your selection. They are very knowledgable and know their inventory well. I have been pleased with the service and product I have left with after every visit. My favorite is the pipe tobacco selection. They have one of the most varied I have seen in the valley, including a many blends of the least of the Dunhills. I highly reccomend stopping in and letting them guide you on your next smoking adventure!
Mike is super helpful and great at giving you info on cigars you are considering. Great social person. This place is old school, so if you're sensitive and don't have thick social skin, don't be so quick to call them rude. They're actually extremely friendly. One of my favorite spots to buy a cigar. Or several cigars
If you're looking for something cheap and terrible to smoke, then this is not the store for you. You may find something fairly inexpensive, but the Cigar Monkey doesn't carry bad products. Whether it's a cigar or loose leaf tobacco, you can count on it being good; you need only to worry about it being to your tastes. If you're unsure about whether or not it is, Mike will undoubtedly provide his expertise to help you figure it out.
