The holidays are upon us and it’s easy to get caught up in the spirit of the season. But after all of the presents are opened and the eggnog has been drank, we’ll be left facing the same post-holiday reality as every year: there’s still more winter. With that in mind, Best Cigar Prices has put together a list of cigars with rich flavors and warm aromas to get you through January and February.
You can’t go wrong with a classic. 1875 cigars are made with cedar-aged Dominican tobaccos that offer a light, silky smoke. They also finish with a sweet, spicy flavor that makes them ideal for pairing with a cup of hot coffee on a cold morning.
Speaking of coffee, if you want a smoke that’s reminiscent of espresso beans, Tabak Especial can’t be beat. The Dulce in particular delivers a smooth, creamy smoke that isn’t too bold. Relax by the fireplace with one of these beloved sticks and you won’t be disappointed.
I mean, the name says it all. Seriously, even if the name Chillin’ Moose didn’t evoke images of a snowy North America, it would still be a prime winter cigar. With notes of nuts and sweet spices, it makes for an fittingly festive smoke.
The Oliva Serie V Melanio Robusto features aged Nicaraguan tobaccos in an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. The result is a balanced blend of pleasant flavors. Notes of nuts and cream give way to a deep, rich chocolate that complements the season.
We all know that it can take a little while for a cigar to “get going” and hit that sweet spot. For outdoor smokers in the winter, we might want to hit that sweet spot a little quicker. That’s where Nub cigars comes in. These sticks can pack as much tobacco as a Churchill into a shorter, big-ring cigar. The Nub Maduro 460 uses this approach to deliver full-bodied flavor with a chocolate undertone throughout.
Hopefully this list has put something new on your radar (or reminded you of a cigar you wanted to try). Enjoy the holidays—and stay warm!
