Cigars are the most cherished and also one of the most desirable luxury products in the world right now. Cigar aficionados demand the very best and it is no surprise that Cuban cigars top the list if you want a high-quality cigar along with a rich taste. Cuban cigars are world-famous and part reason for that is the Cuban tobacco that goes into one. Cuban Cigars are also stronger in taste as well as on aroma but for the authentic experience, none fits better. Here are our favorites.
Montecristo No. 2
When you think of Cuban cigars, the name Montecristo springs up as it is one of the most famous cigars in the whole world. The Montecristo No. 2 is a bona fide classic. This is the cigar that everyone wants and is an icon for its distinctive taste. The flavor and the build are strong while the wrapper is nice and light too. You will appreciate the spicy notes along with steady build-up in flavor. A best-seller and a cigar you must have!
This is another classic and also famous for its size, being called Canonazo or “cannon shot”. This is a big cigar and not for the inexperienced smoker. However, there is plenty to enjoy with a delicate wrapper along with a wonderful array of flavors. There are notes of coffee and leather with a satisfying earthy feel while the spices also nicely combine. It is perfect for an afternoon smoke and shines through with its quality.
The back story is as fascinating as its taste as in 1946 when Sir Winston Churchill, a cigar aficionado and a long-time devotee of the brand had visited Havana, the flagship ring gauge cigar was named after him. The cigar measures 7 inches (178 mm) by 47 ring gauge hence it became a “Churchill”. It is a strong cigar but its smooth and strong taste will make you a fan rather quickly. It is a popular cigar and is recommended for an enjoyable smoke. The recommended aging period is around 3 years.
An expensive and exclusive cigar with a distinctive taste, the Trinidad La Trova LCDH is made for select leaves from Vuelta Abajo. It is big in size but has a beautiful design along with the “pigtail” which is a unique facet. It makes for a high-quality smoke for a long duration along with a variety of flavors coming through including chocolate, earth, spices, and even coffee. You will enjoy this- right from the overall construction to the taste. Overall a must-have!
It is the smallest of the Behike series which consists of sizes like 52, 54, and 56. It is a classic with its rich taste and design including the pigtail. Hand-rolled and exquisite with its wrapper, you will like the taste with a distinct creamy coffee flavor. Unlike Behike’s, the Behike 52 BHK is made from special tobacco called Medio Tiempo. The size along with construction is also fantastic and you will not be disappointed with this cigar ever!
