As we cross the great invisible divide of midnight on December 31st, the spirit of renewal rides heavy in the air around us, signaling new challenges, new opportunities, and fresh perspectives. Such an occasion calls for a special smoke, and with careful timing, it can serve as both your last cigar of the year and your first cigar of the new year. But just what cigars are fitting for this most climactic of closing ceremonies? Your answers, dear reader, lie just ahead.
In addition to having the most popular New Year’s toasting beverage right in its name, the Perdomo Champagne is well-known as a fitting celebratory smoke for any occasion, thanks to its smooth mellow body and sweet, creamy flavor. The Churchill (7 x 50) size will will provide a couple good hours of burn-time, making it ideal for a chilly night on the town watching the ball drop. As an added nudge in the right direction, it currently comes with a free Perdomo ashtray, USB lighter, and cutter set valued @ $90.
There are few cigars that have debuted in recent years that have been more highly regarded than the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Maestro. A full-bodied blend of 100% high pedigree Nicaraguan tobaccos, the Quattro Nicaragua introduces an amazing array of zesty, nutty, peppery, and sweet tasting notes that can be further emboldened by a good rum. The Maestro’s layered lush flavors and impeccable burn performance earned it a rare 96 rating and the coveted #1 spot in Cigar Aficionado’s top cigars of the year for 2019, so this potent puro is a prime choice for those looking to cap off the year with the best of the best.
Ever-elusive and always in demand, the Opus X brand enjoys an aura of mystique that remains unmatched in the industry. It’s a name that never fails to get attention, and the FFOX Lost City 2020 will no doubt be the first cigar on this list to sell out. Rolled using 5-year aged tobaccos grown on the famed Casa de la Fuente farm, these rare smokes are 100% Dominican in origin, offering silky and earthy taste with many tasty nuances. There’s only 500 boxes of these cigars available in the world, so consider yourself among the privileged few if you end up with a Lost City in hand on the final night of the year.
One of the world’s most widely recognized luxury brands, Davidoff has been producing cigars of the highest caliber for over a century. It’s the brand of choice for many well-versed cigar lovers, and the Signature 2000 is an awesome example of Davidoff’s unique level of cigar mastery. Mellow in body, this classic corona-sized cigar is crazily full-flavored, serving up lip-smacking tones of cedar, white pepper, salted caramel, and sweet cocoa, all delivered with Davidoff’s (ahem) signature finesse. This classy edition presents the fan-favorite cigars in elegant individual tubes that are perfect for handing out, making it a great choice for the big Eve.
