Largest cigar store in the world, or at least that's what they claim. Huge selection of cigars and accessories. Cigar bar serving wine and beer with great selection of domestic and imported beers and vintage ports. Limited menu for food. Lively crowd most nights, especially weekends.

Was there last Saturday for the Oliva event, first time at the Orlando one.

There is also one in Heathrow/Lake Mary that is great. Little smaller, but I couldn't really tell, must be back room space.

I am on my way there on my lunch and will be there around noon.

I think you have my cel number and if you want, give me a ring before 11:30 and I will give you a choice of some of my smokes that you definitely won't find at Corona, just not sure what you like and if you'll definitely be there when I am.

it was great to meet Snkbyt, DETROIT357, and a new gorilla Cousteu (sp?) as well as Booker's dad.

Great bunch of guys, my first face to face CS meeting and not the last.

We exchanged some cigars, and stories and I left with some of Alex's famous BBQ sauce.

I'll definately be hitting this place up over labor day week. Going to be on a cruise from 9-3 through 9-7 but probably hit it on the evening of 9-7 or early afternoon of 9-8.

If anyone is interested, let me know.

floydpink
08-19-2007, 09:45 AM
The Orlando location is the headquarters and the biggest for now, until the new location opens with a full liquor bar.

I'd love to get some of the Fla crew to meet up for a herf there. The area around it is also the best place to go out to eat and Amura next door has the best sushi I have ever tried. As an added bonus, the girls working at Corona are very friendly as well as nice tyo look at. Right, Detroit and Snake???

I go to the hostess at Amura, order, tip and let the girl know I am out in front of Corona and ask if she/they could deliver while I smoke and watch all the exotic sports car and women drive/walk by. Now that is a perfect day. :tu

Paging the Central Florida Crew!!!

My family and I are headed to Disney for a week arriving Sunday the 20th. I've (somehow) convinced my wife that I'm leaving the park early that day to watch the late game. After PMing floydpink and getting more info, I decided Corona will be my spot to watch! :tu

I plan on getting there around 6-6:30. I just hope there aren't any flight delays.

Anybody interested in meeting up?

Ok, so I'm in Orlando for the PGA Merchandise show this week. Holy Mother of Crap is this place insane!

Someone asked me to meet them there on Monday, and I've been back every night since.

Honestly...that place has to be Cigar Heaven.

Just spent the last few days in Orlando for business and went to Corona Cigar on Sand Lake twice. I got to know Joe pretty well on the sales floor. Talk about a nice guy and great BOTL. He hooked me up big time and I gave him one of my goodies that his store didn't carry.

Spent the evenings in the bar area smoking some of my new purchases (Liga Privada #9, 601 Green Label and AVO 787) and got to know the ladies behind the bar. Sanjie (?) is a total sweetheart as are the other ladies. Loved this place and only wish we had something like it in San Diego.

BTW - They are opening another store in February that is even bigger and will have a full line of scotch and bourbon (YUMMY!) in their bar.

I made it to Corona as I hoped last Sunday while on vacation. Quite the football game I got to watch!

The store has an enormous selection (albeit a little pricey on some stuff), wonderful staff and an overall great place to sit back and smoke a cigar or two.

I wish the timing could have been better to meet up with a few of you, but there's always a next time (albeit probably a couple years out for me :mad:)

Highly recommended for anyone visiting the Orlando/Disney area. Two :tu

Just got back from Orlando. While down there, my brother-in-law and I tried out the new Diamond Crown lounge. The selection was unbelievable....took me 20 mins just to pick one out. I was like a kid in a candy store. The place really is first class. The lounge area was very nice. Big bar, a number of tables and, of course, a 50+ inch plasma. Watched the Cavaliers stomp the Wizards. It was a great night.

My wife and I will be in Orlando during the last week of August for business and I am very much looking forward to visiting this location and picking up 4 boxes of cigars - it seems like my problem not be finding cigars but narrowing it down to only 100 sticks!

Any suggestions on good brands out there with aging potential? Anyone want to hook up for a cigar or two (or three, etc...:)) while I'm down there?

Nice to be here at the forum btw - I like what you have done with the place. ;)

A must stop every time we're down there visiting my wife's family. Met Jeff (the owner), once, and he was a very nice guy. He even introduced me to Avo. :) Always wish I had more $ every time I walk into the store. Can't wait to move down there and make this my local B&M. :D

Yesterday I visited this store.

I laughed, I cried, I became a better person. :ss
And I smoked a God of Fire while in the lounge and brought to the hotel a stash to smoke on my balcony in the coming evenings including a Padron 1926 #9 which I devoured last evening.

Was down the weekend after Labor Day. Made several extended visits to Corona with SmokeyJoe. Jose Oliva was there for a Nub event on Saturday. Picked up some of those. Also enjoyed Gods of Fire--yes--2 of 'em, a 26, couple of 64s, a VSG, on and on and on....some great tawny port, as well.

Had a great time!

I was a little bit worried about being disappointed with Corona after all of the hype, but this place is awesome.

I went once, then immediately started making a list of stuff to look for the next time that I went there. They had every single stick that I was looking for.

I picked up a God of Fire tubo, a My Father (Don Pepin Garcia himself was there yesterday!), some Illusiones, Tatuaje, Oliva, Lito Gomez, and Ashton ESG. They even have Opus there consistently, even if they are 3x MSRP. Kind of disappointed with the Gurkha selection, but I can pick those up at the B&M in Celebration anyway.

Everyone is helpful, rarely pushy, and they had all of the football games on so I didn't even miss any college action!

Stopped by Corona on Sand Lake last month and it nearly sent me to the poorhouse! Not due to the prices, mind you, but because I was like a kid in a candy store! Their selection was out of this world and the staff very helpful. My only criticism was that there is nothing resembling an organization system so I had a little trouble finding a few specific sticks I wanted. I even asked the staff if there was a system I just wasn't seeing and they said "nope." But they were more than happy to point me in the right direction! Man I wish there was a Corona Cigar Co. close by me!

Corona Cigar Co. is the best. I had my very first cigar there in 2006 at the SandLake.
Ancient Warrior-Rothschild by Gurkha
They treated me like one of the gang and answered all my questions. Now with the amazing downtown. location its like my cigar Mecca :) Great selection of cigars and spirits....With friendly knowledgeable people.
Everytime I go to Flordia for vacation I plan at least three visits to Corona's.

I'm on a business trip to Orlando right now, and had a chance to stop by this outstanding establishment tonight. It was great - basically a cigar supermarket with a bar on the side! My friend and I had some CAO LX2's at the bar, what a great time. Cute bartender too ;) The humidity level in there was good too, the cigars smoked very well right off the shelf.

Funny how we got there, though. We had a pair of cigars (including the second Perdomo I've had which had way too tight a draw and wasn't too flavorful, I'm going to "take a break" from that brand for a while) and some bourbon at the hotel, and decided to walk to the store which was 5.5 miles away. What a poor, poor decision. We were about halfway there (an hour later), walking down the side of a highway with no sidewalk in flip flops (I have awful blisters now, my feet aren't summer conditioned yet), and decided that we'd had enough, at which point we called a cab. Of course, the driver got lost, and when we finally got there, he all but ran over a table of guys who were smoking outside, hitting the curb. When we got out, one of them said, "Hey ask the driver if he wants another beer before he leaves!" All was well though, and we met some good folks there.

Gonna have some DPG Blues we got there tomorrow!

My "must visit when we're in Orlando". love it! and I have the shirt to prove it!! Walk in, grab a basket and a smoke. Spark it up & shop.. I usually finish shopping & the stick at about the same time!!

I love the "brrrrp" of the humidizer every minute or so..
And the smell as you walk in... like being hit in the face with a velvet glove..

And the wife has the Barnes & Nobles around the corner!! :D

Corona is the absolute best spot... I drive from Daytona to their location in Lake Mary to buy. Not a lot of local selection here other than the Tinderbox which is good too but you can't beat the selection that Corona has. Or when I go to Disney I have to make a stop at their main store in Orlando.

If any of you are ever in town or live in orlando come in and introduce yourself and enjoy a great smoke.
