Top 5 Best Cigar Gift Ideas for 2011
The holiday season is one of our favorite times of year here at BCP, but we also know that picking out a gift for that smoky someone on your shopping list can sometimes be a tremendous pain in the butt. So we decided to feature a few products that would make awesome gifts for any cigar-fan, in hopes of making your shopping experience this year a little easier. So without further ado, here are our top picks for cigar-related gift ideas this season.
1.Rocky Patel Winter Collection 2012
Rocky’s first Winter release debuted in 2009, and at the time was heralded as one of his best blends to date. This year marks the release of the follow-up, the Rocky Patel Winter Collection 2012. This full-bodied blend is all-new this time around, and early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. The seasonal cigar features a unique combination of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, dual binders from Costa Rica and Mexico, and Panamanian and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, a stout mix that pairs well with a nice Winter weather beverage. Offered in three sizes, Robusto(51/2×50), Toro(61/2×52), and Torpedo(61/8×52), a limited production run of only 2000 boxes per vitola amps up the collectors value on these rare treats.
2. Arturo Fuente Cigars Holiday 2011 Sampler
This one is kind of a given. Here you have 10 super-premium cigars from the industry’s leading manufacturer of fine Dominican stogies, all in one convenient sampler box. This gift
sampler features the best and brightest from Fuente’s line-up, from the original line, to the Hemingway, and even the much-sought-after Opus X. This limited release is sure to put a smile on the face of any aficionado.
The third installment of La Gloria’s Artesanos trilogy, the Obelisco is a Pyramid-shaped powerhouse that makes for a novel smoke both because of it’s continuous, gradual taper from foot to head, and it’s masterful blending, centered around a spicy and sweet Sumatran wrapper. The five-cigar sampler comes in a neat, pyramid-shaped gift box and would be a welcome addition to any smoker’s humidor.
There’s nothing wrong with a little self-promotion, right? No seriously folks, besides the fact that this cool little starter pack is exclusive to Best Cigar Prices, in all honestly it’s one of the best beginner’s kits I have seen. In this package deal you get an Orleans Cherry 25-count Humidor, 20 premium handmade cigars, a triple-torch lighter, double-blade guillotine cigar cutter, and a full humidification set-up, all for a very reasonable price. The BCP Starter Kit saves you not only money, but the time it would take you to track down all this stuff by yourself, and makes a great gift for any smoker who’s just getting started.
5. Xikar X8 Gift Pack
Everyone knows that Xikar is by far one of the best brands for top-of-the-line cigar accessories, and the X8 Gift Pack showcases some of the best they have to offer. Each pack features a Xikar Inpress lighter and a Xikar X8 cutter, tucked away in a convenient, light-weight and durable Xikar 5-count travel humidor. The X8 Gift Pack is an excellent gift choice for the smoker on the go.
