GalanoOur Story

Today, we live in a fast-paced world where everybody seems to be rushing for almost everything they have to do, every time they do it. We wanted to create something special, dedicated to all those that want to stop for a minute and enjoy the finer things in life.

The word Galano originated from the Old French word galer, which means to enjoy oneself. In Spanish, "Galano" or "Galana" is someone elegant, with good taste, and always with the intent to please.

Galano embodies tradition and a nostalgia for those gallant gestures that every day seem to be closer to extinction. It represents everything about our cigars and everything we want to share with the world.

About Our Company And Values

Galano Cigars is a startup that was born out of our desire to share Ybor City with the world.

We have modeled some of our core values and business strategy from some of the most successful modern companies in the world, including Amazon, Uber, and Tesla.

We believe in three things:

  • We believe in challenging the status quo.
  • We are here to offer you the finest cigars in the world.
  • We embrace excellence.

We understand there are great brands that have been the pillar of the cigar world for over 50 years. Some of them have been around for over a century!

We are proud to bring a fresh perspective to the cigar society, and are here to make a statement.

We are taking a unique approach to getting our cigars in the market:

  • All our cigars are part of our private production in Ybor City.
  • You won’t find a storefront to visit locally since after the cigars are hand rolled, they are taken directly to our aging warehouses in Tampa until shipping.
  • Most orders are processed same-day and shipped within one business day.
  • We ship worldwide.

Some of the business decisions we make allow us to be extremely flexible, and will permit us to quickly expand to new distribution channels in other countries, if needed.

AboutOur Cigars

All our cigars are aged to perfection, zealously designed and meticulously built with the best tobacco from around the world. From packaging to flavor, we trust that smoking a Galano cigar will always be an amazing experience.

Finest Cigars in the World

All of our cigars come from private production in Ybor CIty and taken directly to our warehouses in Tampa for aging.

Depending on the collection, our cigars are aged at least 3 to 6 months. We use large humidors kept at 70% humidity and constant temperature. For each product line, we carefully craft the aging process differently. For example, we age our SELECTO collection for 3 months using Spanish Cedar liners in our humidors to create a perfect combination of unique flavor profiles.

All of our cigars go through a rigorous selection process. There is no coincidence experts that review our products rave about the construction and aesthetics of our cigars.

"I give full credit to the torcedors for the perfect construction and draw on this cigar, and it has loads of great flavor. Dark, lush flavors with a bunch of sweet spice, dark fruit, coffee and cocoa. I loved it, it was really quite good, and I’ll definitely smoke it again"CigarCraig.comPRIMERO Review

"The Clasico Robusto is a fine cigar. It’s mild-bodied, yet with plenty of flavor – tasteful and refined, and just the way Galano presents it. I would recommend it to a cigar enthusiast of any level. Because of it not being an overpowering cigar"CigarWeekly.comCLASICO Review
