With so many retail cigar stores and online stores, cigar enthusiasts such as yourself, have a lot of choices of where to shop. I want to tell you a little about myself and what I hope to accomplish with The CigarZilla to help to encourage you to shop with us!

My name is Brad Berko, founder of I am an avid, premium cigar smoker. I definitely describe myself (and I’m sure you do as well) as ‘a lover of the leaf’. I have been regularly smoking premium cigars for over forty years and have been involved in the great cigar industry since 1996. My ‘involvement’ in the cigar industry has included (across the country,) cigar event creation and promotions, wholesale distribution to on-premise accounts (such as casinos, golf courses and resorts) and most recently owning for 8 years, my own cigar store and cigar smoking lounge in Scottsdale, Arizona.

I have created to offer Top Quality Cigars to everyday cigar smokers and those that are novices as well. In striving to have cigars for everyone, we even have a VERY RARE (CIGAR) PAGE for those that enjoy something ‘special’!   We offer Top Quality Cigars from every (legal) cigar exporting country such as the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Honduras. We have cigars of all shapes and sizes. We offer cigar bundles for less than $100 and boxes for much more. We offer SAMPLER PACKS because many cigar smokers, like myself, want to try a cigar before they invest in an entire box!  Our prices are excellent and we will strive to give you the best customer service available!

In all of my years smoking cigars as well as being in the industry for 23 years, I have learned that what I like to smoke might be something that you too would enjoy, but maybe not!  I know if you give me a brief description of what type of cigars you enjoy, I can always place the right cigar in your mouth. (Check out our CIGAR OF THE MONTH CLUB MEMBERSHIP PAGE where we send you a variety of cigars that you want to smoke because we know your taste profile.)  I know that I don’t have the palate (and maybe you don’t either) to tell a cigar’s tasting notes such as being woodsy, leathery or having hints of cherry. Like many cigar smokers I rate cigars in 2 ways: cigars I like and cigars that I do not. I have personally smoked every cigar that we sell and that’s why it appears on!

Today, there are so many great cigar choices. These cigars come in a variety of shapes, sizes, price points, strength and taste profiles. I know that you will be able to find what you want to smoke on The CigarZilla. Whether you are a novice or a regular cigar smoker looking for something different, simply send me an email and I’ll personally answer you right back with several suggestions.  In order for you to learn more about cigars, we have a CIGARS 101 PAGE with great cigar and cigar-related articles.

I created as a place that I would enjoy shopping.  I’m just like many of you, a regular guy who enjoys the pleasures of great Top Quality Cigars.  I look forward to receiving your orders and responding to your emails.
