Choosing the right Cigar.

Choosing the right Cigar.

Fathers Day has past and many dads out there got a handful of cigars to smoke. I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to pick a great smoke for your loved one. In choosing a great a cigar you must consider the personality of the individual. Pairing a cigar to a person is like pairing a delicious bottle of wine to a sensational meal.

Take into consideration what type of person they are – bold, strong, quiet, adventurous, someone who is always on the go or loves to simply relax. What are their likes and dislikes – spicy foods, cotton candy, fragrances or the great outdoors.

The point is, knowing who they are will help you in choosing a cigar that will compliment the person you are intending to have smoke them. The goal is to provide an unforgettable and enjoyable experience that will last a life time or until the next cigar.

I have come across a few cigars that will make your taste buds tingle and not retreat down to the back of your throat. However, each person will eventually change what they like as their palate develops.

Here are some of my top choices and why:

Abe Flores 1975 Serie Privada


The Abe Flores 1975 Serie Privada cigar delivers a bold flavor with hints of vanilla, coffee bean and cocoa.

Tabak Especial Negra Robusto Maduro Coffee Infused

The Tabak Especial delivers a bold espresso flavor with hints of milk chocolate and cocoa.

La Flor Dominicana Chapter 1 Limited Edition Chisel Oscuro


The Chapter 1 is a strong and complex cigar which delivers an abundance of flavors including earth, spices and a lot of pepper.

Flor de las Antillas Maduro


The Flor de las Antillas delivers notes of espresso, wood/oak, spice and a bit of sweetness.

In reading through my choices of cigars. I’ll bet you can see a pattern or certainly get an idea of what I like. You guessed it! I’m a bold, sweet and savory kind of guy.

Now the best part of having this simple guideline in choosing a cigar is it also applies to you. So, the next time you decide to pick up a cigar for someone don’t forget to grab one for yourself.
