Smoking Shields was established in 2015 to address the lack of a fraternal organization of law enforcement professionals who shared their passion of enjoying premium cigars and a desire to help our nation’s heroes.

The main purpose of Smoking Shields is to provide financial assistance to law enforcement officers and military personnel, to help them and their families, in a time of need. 

Smoking Shields FL was established in 2017 and is comprised of members from all aspects of law enforcement in Tampa Bay.  Our chapter is one of 10 chapters in the United States.

The Cigar Heritage Festival presenting a $10,000 check to Smoking Shields FL. President Marc Hamlin accepting with other members of Smoking Shields Florida present. Thanks to all the volunteers that helped make this donation possible. 

The new club cigar is here! It was made by Espinosa Cigars and is a 6x52 box pressed Nicaraguan puro, with a dark Habano wrapper. It is full of flavor and only available at the Cigar Castle in packs of 5!


The cost of the cigars are $40 per 5-pack plus tax. Atul Solanki, a member of our organization and owner of the Cigar Castle, will donate a large portion of the proceeds to the club. This is certainly a fun way to raise money!


The Cigar Castle is located at 11724 N 56th St. Tampa, FL 33617 and the phone number is (813) 985-1300. Atul will ship the cigars to you if you cannot make it by his shop.
