Top 5 cigar Christmas gifts for 2017
It’s officially that time of year again, Christmas! And now you’re left with the Big Question “what can I get as a gift for Christmas?” A wrist watch, mug, tie or a shaver just won’t make the cut this year, so we’ve helped you put together a cool list of the Top five 2017 cigars to shop for and show that special man in your life how much you love him.
Cigars represent the way things used to be when good conversation, quality craftsmanship and tradition really mattered. They represent the good life, in whatever way that means to you. It could be a wedding, a graduation, to help keep your cool during a poker game, or possibly just something to make the moment longer when sharing a good conversation with your pals. Despite what the occasion is, smoking a cigar makes things better and memorable.
There are lots of cigars out there, but we’ve taken the liberty of listing the top 5 here to make the whole process pretty easy.
Montecristo ’80th Anniversary No. 2′ Cigars
The Montecristo ’80th Anniversary No. 2′ Cigar is a full-bodied cigar – a perfect Christmas gift for any man. There’s no doubt, Montecristo is currently one of, if not, the most well-known cigar brand in the world. This cigar is loaded with Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers, Dominican Olor 2010 binder, plus a dark and oily Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. The taste is truly exceptional and screams high quality. Cigar connoisseurs and newbies alike will enjoy this one.
These will not be around for long.
Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real
The quality and taste of Romeo y Julieta are extraordinary. Their Reserva Real line boasts of a paper-like impeccable Connecticut Shade wrapper and a Nicaraguan long filler tobacco, giving richness and depth without strong body. The superb red band produces a smoke that tastes as good as it looks. Ideal for those who like the occasional cigar and can handle more than just the ultra-mild. You can get them here.
The Romeo is good for new cigar smokers.
Oliva Connecticut Reserve
Despite obtaining the highest ratings on their cigars, Oliva cigars is one of the few cigar manufacturers that continues to produce fairly priced cigars with an excellent quality. With quality cigars like their Serie V line, they are also well known for their mild smokes including the Connecticut Reserve Torpedo. Blended from Nicaraguan fillers and binder. Finished with the best Ecuador Connecticut wrapper.
Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro Robusto
Rocky Patel cigars were originally made in Honduras, but now they come out of Nicaragua. This cigar offers premium taste for good money, which means you don’t have to break the bank to enjoy your evening with friends. The Connecticut Reserve Torpedo is full-bodied and complex, and is an excellent value.
Arturo Fuente OPUS X
I think the Arturo Fuente OPUS X should come with a “warning tag”.
If you are a newbie and have not had a lot of experience with a full-flavored cigar, then you might want to let this one pass. The Arturo Fuente OPUS X uses Dominican tobacco cured in rum barrels before being rolled and then allowed to age for at least a year. It is known as a very complex cigar with flavors such as caramel, cocoa, pepper, cedar, leather, raisin, roasted nuts and earth. An excellent smoke in every way if you can handle it. They can be pretty hard to find and they don’t come cheap.
There you have it, our top 5 cigars perfect for gifts this Christmas. Hopefully you’ve found something on this list that could help you make a decision. Merry Christmas!
