As the weather turns frigid and rain slowly gives way to snow, our time spent outside smoking a cigar becomes less and less enjoyable. When you’re losing feeling in your fingers and toes, chances are you don’t want to stay out as long as possible with a big ol’ Churchill. Not to worry—that’s what short sticks are for! Best Cigar Prices has plenty of top-notch blends that prove good things can come in small packages.
H. Upmann’s 1844 Reserve Robolo is the perfect reminder that short doesn’t necessarily mean small when it comes to cigars. These stout beauties may be just 4 1/2” long, but they boast a fat 60 ring gauge. Wrap all of that within a sweet and spicy Ecuadorian Cubano wrapper, and you’ve got yourself one satisfying smoke.
If you’re a fan of Alec Bradley’s original Black Market cigar line, their Black Market Estelis are a must. They feature a medium-full blend of tobaccos, dual binders, and a sweet Nicaraguan leaf wrapper that is bursting with flavor. Not bad for a stick that measures just 4 1/4 x 42.
You know a cigar is going to be quality when it was originally made for Mr. AJ Fernandez himself. With the Last Call Corticas Maduro, you’ll be treating your palate to an array of flavor notes that range from espresso to maple. It’s the perfect profile for a winter smoke, and with a size of 4 x 52, you won’t have to stay out in the cold long to enjoy it.
While the other entries on this list are specific cigars, Nub cigars are an entire line of small sticks with big taste. Whether your wrapper of choice is Connecticut, maduro, habano, or something else, there is a Nub for you. Designed to mimic the “sweet spot” in the middle of average-sized cigars, Nubs let you get right to the big flavor fast.
There you have it. If you’re in the market for a new box of cigars at the beginning of winter, these short-but-effective cigars are a great choice. As always, you can pick them up at Best Cigar Prices to ensure that you’re getting the best deals around.
