Congratulations Perfect Ash! I have enjoyed the company of your cliental over many good cigars. We are blessed with a number of really good cigar shops: Golden Leaf, Tobacco Grove, Cigar Jones, Stogies on Grand, R.J. Fielding to name a few. I encourage those who CHOOSE to indulge to support your local retailer as the Smoke Nazi’s –those who want to tell everyone else how to live - are trying to put them out of business.
Best Tobacconist - 2011
Perfect Ash has plenty of cigars, pipe tobacco, and high-end accessories for your pursuit of the perfect puff. But what sets this shop a step above is the all-encompassing experience for the tobacco enthusiast. Once the space of the Smoke Shop, from 1973 to 2004, the Perfect Ash ownership invested heavily in remodeling and refreshing the rooms. Along with a selection of over 80 premium cigars in its walk-in humidor and its hard-to-find service of custom pipe-tobacco blending, Perfect Ash also offers an exceptional environment in which to enjoy your pipe or cigar and, even better, a place to legally couple your smoke with a drink. Adjoining Perfect Ash is the "Lilydale Social Club," an inviting, members-only lounge (with a killer view of the Mississippi) where cigar and pipe smokers can enjoy a pour from a bottle they bring in themselves. Take a look at their thorough website before stopping by, as the pages offer a wealth of cigar reviews and education and also give a sense of the networking, event, lecture, and card-playing possibilities often enjoyed by longtime clientele and club members.
Great customer service, always helpful in answering my many tobacco questions no matter how retarded they are. I am surprised to find a cigar shop (no cigarettes) that carries $20+ cigars, but also carries a handful of $5>
Congrats Diana! You work hard to provide a GREAT place for your customers. You deserve the recognition....see you in Vegas!
Your buddies down south....

Great place to visit! the Social Club is a fantastic set-up and that view of the Mississippi--you cannot buy that!
Great job on awarding "The Perfect Ash" Best Tobacconist 2011! To be sure, the best selection of premium cigars and pipe tobaccos in the Twin Cities.....Your only a stranger the first time you visit the Ash
Very nice job of recognizing a GREAT "cigar bar!" Diana has turned Perfect Ash into a real destination spot for all manner of men and women who enjoy a fine cigar or pipe. I also very much appreciate that Perfect Ash has plentiful (and free) parking. They've definitely earned the prestigious City Pages "Best Of" label!
