Gary Lōks

Welcome to Gary Lōks Premium Cigars, one of the fastest growing cigar brands in the country, where passion meets craftsmanship in every puff. Founded in Louisville, Kentucky, in 2021 by Gary “Lōks” Smith, Sr., our journey began with a spark of inspiration and a dream to create something truly exceptional.

Gary Loks, LLC., established in 2019 without a clear direction, found its purpose one memorable night as Gary indulged in his love for cigars and bourbon, while watching a game. It was then, gazing at the rich smoke swirling from his cigar, that the idea of crafting his own brand ignited within him. What started as a simple desire to explore and connect with fellow aficionados evolved into an extraordinary venture beyond his wildest imagination.

In August 2021, Gary Lōks Premium Cigars made its debut with the Jazz Series, using a classic blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers, a Honduran binder, and a caramel brown Ecuador/Connecticut wrapper leaf. Whether beginner or aficionado, Jazz is a cigar that everyone should try at least once.

The recognition came swiftly when the Jazz Series earned accolades in the esteemed pages of the 2022 Summer edition of the Cigar Journal magazine, solidifying its place among the industry’s elite.

The journey continued in the following year with the introduction of Lil’ G, a cigar that captured the hearts and palates of enthusiasts worldwide. Garnering an impressive 89, 3-Star rating and a coveted Cigar Journal Best Buy designation, Lil’ G showcased Gary’s unwavering commitment to excellence. Featuring a five-year-old San Andres Maduro wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and some of the finest Nicaraguan filler tobacco, Lil’ G is a delicious cigar with lots of creamy smoke.

As our reputation grew, so did our reach. In 2024, Gary Lōks Premium Cigars proudly graced the Super Bowl Gift Lounge in Las Vegas, a testament to our dedication to providing nothing but the best for our discerning clientele. Today, we are honored to be the official cigar of the Super Bowl Gift Lounge.

*** We are also honored to announce that Gary Lōks Premium Cigar  was recently named the official cigar of the West Coast Hip Hop Awards, in Los Angeles, CA. 

Yet, beyond the accolades and achievements lies the true essence of Gary Lōks Premium Cigars—the people and the connections forged along the way, or what we call the Cigar Culture. From seasoned aficionados to curious newcomers, Gary has had the privilege of crossing paths with individuals from all walks of life, united by a shared love for fine tobacco and a desire to savor life’s simple pleasures.

Our mission is simple yet profound: to continue crafting exceptional cigars, to forge meaningful connections with fellow enthusiasts, and to spread love and camaraderie across the globe—one cigar at a time. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our supporters, whose encouragement fuels our passion and inspires us to reach greater heights.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. Together, let’s raise our cigars and a glass—to the moments that unite us and the experiences that enrich our lives.

With warm regards,

Gary Smith, Sr.
