It’s not uncommon for people to view summer as the prime time for smoking cigars. After all, cigars are generally enjoyed outdoors. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t sticks that hit the spot during the cooler months. In fact, some cigars seem to have a flavor profile that was blended just for autumn. Here’s our top five picks for cigars that are perfect to enjoy as the leaves change and the temperature dips.
What better way to kick off a list of cigars for the spooky season than with one of Tatuaje’s Skinny Monsters? While you really can’t miss with any of these blends, the Mummy truly seems like it was made for the fall. Something about the combination of fruit and cinnamon flavor notes just makes you want to go for an autumn stroll, crunching dead leaves under your feet.
Between its balanced strength and its box-pressed construction, the Floor de las Antillas Toro is one of the smoothest smokes you can find. Whether you’re sitting on your porch or having a herf with friends, you really can’t beat this blend when you want a relaxing smoke. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it earned an eye-popping 96 rating from Cigar Aficionado.
For those looking for something a little stronger, we have Alec Bradley’s Black Market Esteli cigars. Its peppery spice may intimidate beginner smokers, but this is balanced so well with its sweet and nutty wrapper that we had to include it for those who want a little kick in their autumn smokes.
While fall is known for its mild weather, some days can be downright chilly. It’s on days like this that a short cigar can come in handy, allowing you to finish your cigar relatively quickly. That’s where Nub cigars come in handy. The Nub Nuance Triple Roast in particular is a treat on a cool day, especially for coffee lovers. It still packs some punch, so don’t forget to slow down and savor these sticks. At just 4 inches in length, you won’t have to smoke it fast anyway.
Finally, for those looking for some inexpensive sticks to fill in their humidor, we have the South Beach Flavors Honey Maple from Nino Vasquez. For those who indulge in flavored blends, it doesn’t get much better than enjoying a honey maple flavor profile while in the heart of fall. Then again, at just $55.99 for a box of 25, maybe it does.
So brew up some hot apple cider, turn on a football game, and light up one of these sticks to complete your fall experience. You’ll find them all at a consistently low cost here at Best Cigar Prices.
