Niels Nielsen also called “CigarNielsen” is Denmark’s only, last and leading cigar maker.
In my time as a cigar maker I have rolled somewhere between 4 – 500.000 Signature cigars and been a part of thousands of events showing the old craft. There is no doubt that today I am the best cigar maker in Denmark – I am also the only one working professionally. Today I am on my own, self-employed and deciding what to produce and when.

In the Danish Cigar makers tradition the draft in the cigar has always been of the foremost importance. Then came the look of course the cigar should look inviting. “You smoke first with your eyes” as my master said, when I was learning the craft. In my opinion life is too short for cigars with poor draft, that is one reason why I am upholding the Danish tradition of cigar making with paper, a bunch frame and no pressure.
