Doumitt Cigar was created by Chris Doumitt out of his love of cigars. For years people have asked Chris when he was going to offer his own cigar, that day has come.
We strive to offer 100% hand made premium cigars at a fair price.
Our first two cigars were released in time for Christmas 2017. Doumitt Cigar continues to grow. Canadian and the UK customers can now order cigars and merchandise directly from Doumitt Cigar’s website and have them shipped directly from Doumitt to their door (via Customs).
We have continued to expand the humidor, now offering 10 amazing cigars, each one carefully blended from mild to strong, from small to large. All 100% hand-made, especially for Chris in the Dominican Republic.

A little History
2018: Our Nicaraguan Cigars (Oro Negro and Oro Rechoncho) were launched. These amazing and robust cigars are especially handmade for me to my specifications. These have the pepper taste Nicaraguan leaf cigars are known for and they get better and better with age.
2019: We added three “Silver Line” cigars (380-DR, D-8, & D-10). All three “Silver’s” are made for us in the renowned Tabacalera Real factory in Santiago Dominican Republic. We spent most of 2018 developing these three blends, packaging and branding, and I cannot be happier with the results.
2020: We added our Connecticut wrapper version of the small 380-DR petite corona that come in boxes, bundles, 5-packs, and the embossed metal travel “tin” we had custom made. Developing small cigars is very tricky; the small amount of tobacco used requires the recipe and tobacco quality to be perfect and the hand rolling must be precise every time.
The TRADESMEN line was launched in the summer of 2020 in honor of our hard-working American Tradespeople working every day to make our lives possible. The Master – Now the Biggest cigar in the Humidor, The Journeyman – A solid hearty Dominican blend you can count on every day and The Apprentice, Our mildest cigar for those who want the toasty notes and smoothness from their cigars as well as those folks just starting out enjoying cigars. All 3 TRADESMEN are excellent cigars and have become very popular. I am particularly fond of the Journeyman these days.
2021: We relaunched the updated Doumitt Gold Line: The Oro Negro and Oro Rechoncho were each made a little longer by popular demand and even better flavor than before. We also added our 10th cigar in 2021, the Oro Suave “Smooth Gold”. The Suave is a Gold Line cigar, smaller than the Negro and Rechoncho and a bit milder to balance out the options in my Humidor. The Suave 5″ x 48 size is perfect for a shorter smoking time, smoking like a dream with some spice at the beginning and then smooths out from there.
Christmas 2021: We released a limited run of a special version of the small 380 sticks. Coming in a tin of 5 cigars, we had the wrapper from each of our existing 380’s (Habano and Connecticut) to make a “Barber Pole” wrapper version, making an amazing little smoke for the holidays. The 380 Barber Pole was extremely popular and we sold our entire inventory. You may see the 380 Barber Pole again in the future. Also for the holidays, we offered a limited number of gift boxes for that special someone. Each gift box had a choice of cigars, and everything needed to enjoy Doumitt Cigars; all inside a new, sealed wooden box and I autographed each one.
I keep telling folks...” If my customers keep smoking cigars, I will keep making cigars ” – We are having a blast, thank you for your continued support.
I am confident that if you take care of your cigars once they leave my humidor and keep them stored properly, they will smoke the way I intend them to be. Enjoy and be blessed.
Chris Doumitt & Harry DeWolf have been friends for many years and ultimately became business partners to create Doumitt Cigar in 2016. After quite a few years of smoking cigars together and discussing the vision of a premium cigar company with Chris’ name on it, Doumitt Cigar was born.
Harry DeWolf – Behind the Scenes
Doumitt Cigar has another cigar aficionado involved who brings a lot to our business. Harry DeWolf is Chris’ business partner. Harry oversees Operations, Product Development, Accounting, Legal and Order Fulfillment. Harry has been smoking and learning about cigars for over 30 years. He first enjoyed cigars while traveling the world as a Supply Officer in US Navy for 20 years. His cigar knowledge runs deep; learning the details of tobacco selection from Michael Giannini of General Cigar (now of Ventura Cigar). Learning the entire cigar construction and rolling process from the master rollers of La Gloria Cubana. Ernesto Carillo (EPC) Jr. himself looked over Harry’s shoulder giving him pointers as he learned how to roll a La Gloria Charlemagne in the La Gloria factory after Harry won the first Cigar Aficionado Big Smoke “Super-Roll” competition in Las Vegas in 2003.
When we are developing and testing blends, you will find Harry carefully taking notes, measuring and examining all the fine details most people can’t see or taste in a cigar. Harry knows the leaf and blends. He runs tests on how they light, smoke, draw, feel, and burn. If they don’t meet Harry’s standards, they are left behind and the work continues.
Holding an MBA degree, having experience as a Chief Financial Officer, being a college professor of accounting and entrepreneurship and the former Oregon Director of the US Small Business Administration (US SBA), Harry has shown he has the business acumen, drive and experience to take Doumitt Cigar to the next level, expand our market place and select new factories and countries for the future.
Harry enjoys a good quality, slow smoking cigar. Cigars provide Harry an opportunity to slow down and relax. His current favorite cigars are the Oro Rechoncho, D-10, and an occasional Apprentice or Oro Suave. Harry’s cigar mantra is simple. Life is too short for cheap cigars – Enjoy only the Best.
