The Best Piramides Cigars

While closely related to the torpedo and belicoso vitolas, piramides are set apart by one unique defining characteristic – its gradual taper starting at the head continues all the way down to its foot, effectively creating a “pyramid”-like shape that encompasses the entire cigar.

Basic Example of a Piramides (Pyramid) cigar

This creates a concentration of flavors that builds in intensity for the entire duration of the smoke, offering a variation on the condensed flavor delivery of the other tapered-head figurados.

The piramides shape draws out deep complexity from a tobacco blend and often presents flavor profiles in a way that’s just not possible with other vitolas. Check out these 5 great examples of piramides cigars that exemplify this unique dynamic:

1. Herrera Esteli Habano Piramide Fina

A smooth and robust blend, the Piramide version of the Herrera Esteli Habano offers a steady progression of cedar, oak, cream, and spice notes that morph and marry in various satisfying ways over the course of its crisp burn.

Showcasing a beautiful brown-gold wrapper leaf grown in the difficult soils of the Yamasa region of the Dominican Republic over potent fillers from the D.R. and Nicaragua, the Davidoff Yamasa holds a wealth of full-bodied character beneath its oily sheen. Rich notes of fiery spice, sweet cedar, earth, coffee, cocoa powder, nuts, and black pepper make up its lively tasting profile. When rolled as a piramide, the Yamasa effectively turns into an erupting volcano of lush and complex flavor.
