chris Chris is pleased to announce the official launch of the 30th edition of Burlington’s Project X cigar, the Burlington XXX. This delightful cigar, already enjoyed by a growing cadre of cigar smokers has been tweaked by substituting a different binder and by configuring it as a “box press”. The net result is a medium-bodied, smoother, creamier cigar sure to impress the palates of an even wider body of cigar smokers.

On May 31 Burlington commemorated ‘International Enjoy A Cigar Day’. And what a celebration it was! No other than Alejandro Turrent, one of Mexico’s premier Cigar producers, and the manufacturer of the Burlington XXX, graced us with his presence, flying in all the way from Ciudad Mexico. The Project X line of cigars was enjoyed by a large number of Burlington’s patrons. Chris encourages you to give the Burlington XXX cigar a spin.



aaron copy It’s not easy being green! Or so Kermit would have you believe. DON’T BELEVE HIM! Aaron has been feeling green while exercising his green thumb this spring and that has put him in the mood for enjoying some Peterson 3P tobacco in his Peterson Racing Green pipe. Both items readily available at Burlington’s.

The **SOLD** is Aaron’s go-to cigar when he’s feeling green. It’s wrapper is green,green, green but this medium to mild-bodied cigar won’t leave him feeling green (if you know what he means?).


Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! For your cigar-loving dad (or to treat yourself for that matter) why not pick up some My Father cigars. To my palate these delightful Flor de las Antillas cigars have a “nutty”, “java” note to them and are very smooth. The Bijoux  is an especially rich and tasty My Father. These cigars also happen to be on special for the month of June

If your father is a discerning cigar smoker, you might consider giving him one of the fine Xikar cigar cutters we have in stock. Xikar offers a lifetime warranty for all its products including Xikar guillotine cutters, V-cutters, and punches which are all available at Burlington’s.


 Now that the great outdoors is beckoning us and we are likely to spend more time in the woods or on the golf course there are a couple of items that will make our lives more enjoyable and will keep us safer in the long run. The Perfecto Cigar Holder is the quintessential gadget for keeping your cigar safe and available during your round of golf. Just clip it to your cart and be the envy of the other cigar smokers in your group! Unlike older versions which sometimes squashed your cigar, this device is engineered to keep your cigars in their proper shape.

Pocket ashtrays are the way to go if you’re going to be smoking ‘roll-your-owns’ or ‘taylor-mades’ while camping, hiking in the woods or attending one of the myriad music festivals around the province. Fire advisories have been rampant these past few years and we all need to do what we can to keep our fellow Albertans safe, not to mention our environment! Anna says, “Be safe. Be happy”.
