Now that Cuba and the United States are friends, the dissolved embargo may soon allow for the sale of the highly sought-after Cuban cigar. But until then, if you are in search of a whole tobacco leaf filled with fermented tobacco, cigars can be purchased at McMenamins Old Saint Francis School's O'Kanes bar. The tiny bar has a knowledgeable staff that can help you pair cigars with scotch—whether you're looking for a smoky scotch or island-y flavor. They can also be smoked at the bar. Cigars come wrapped and make shopping for the occasional cigar smoker a cinch.
