#1 Nat Sherman Metropolitan: This cigar was truly a beautiful smoke, putting out flavors in a range from baking spices, nuts, grass, hay, and chocolate all the way to lemon and honeysuckle. Yes, it’s a bonafide flavor bomb. Go get one and treat yourself. You’ll thank me later. Click here for my full review.

#2 Dunhill Aged: With a smooth, suede wrapper giving you creamy cedar, chocolate, coconut, and banana cream pie, there’s no reason to say no to this smoke. My search for the ultimate creamy cigar ended here. I think yours will too. Click here for my full review.

#3 Rocky Patel Vintage 1999: A creamy smoke as well, but with a bit more body than the Dunhill, the Vintage ’99 will give you classic tones of wood, cream, and bread, as well as some other surprises. If you’ve never had a Rocky Patel, try one of his bestClick here for my full review.
