It’s fairly common knowledge that the majority of premium cigars are made in the countries of Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and the overrated island of Cuba. But not all.
In fact, some of the finest smokes one can get their hands on are made right here in the good old U.S. of A. Check out these four amazing American-made cigars, for example:
Loaded with rich tones of chocolate, sweet cream, espresso, cedar, and more, the Aganorsa Leaf Maduro wraps a burly San Andres Maduro wrapper leaf over a core of vintage Nicaraguan long-fillers to deliver a strong smoke with indulgent character. Handmade by the pros at Casa Fernandez in Miami, Florida, the El Supremo size is a hulking 6 x 58 vitola that provides a long burn time and a proverbial melting pot of mouthwatering flavor notes.
A beautiful Belicoso carefully crafted at cigar legend Don Pepin’s El Rey de Los Habanos factory in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami, this iteration of the full and spicy Series JJ blend serves up smooth taste in each measured draw. Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo long-leaves tucked inside an oily Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper create the Series JJ’s zesty complexity, and the Belicoso shape helps steer its dense profile into a balanced bouquet of nutty, peppery, and earthy clouds of creamy smoke.
Capturing the La Palina Family Series’ mellow wave of tempting taste in a 6 x 52 vitola, the Alison’s precise torpedo shape adds a few degrees of concentration to its layered flavor profile. Hailing from the world-renowned El Titan de Bronze factory in Miami Florida, this outstanding U.S.A.-made option uses select tobaccos from Nicaragua and Ecuador to invoke its alluring ensemble of bright, sweet, and bready tasting notes.
Don’t you dare laugh at that cool cowboy on the box inlay. Made using 100% US-grown, dark fire-cured Kentucky tobaccos, Ramrod Originals might be the most American cigars on this list. These rustic smokes seasoned with fine bourbon have been made right down the road from us in Scranton, Pennsylvania by the esteemed Avanti Cigar Co. since the 1970s. An old-school cheroot-style stogie straight out of the spaghetti westerns, this classic offering has amassed quite a cult following among lovers of booze-infused smokes. So what if its packaging looks like something pulled from a 70’s porn? It’s easily one of the smoothest and most satisfying cigars of its ilk.
Light up any one of these excellent American cigars and enjoy a particularly patriotic puff that’s right at home in the land of the free.
