The Best New Cigars, Fresh From the Famous Smoke Shop Humidor!

I don’t think my Thanksgiving food coma has worn off yet. Nor has my headache from the endless crowds on Black Friday. Was it really all worth getting $50 off that TV?!

It’s times like these when we could really use a break from the holiday craziness…and I’ve found three new cigars that’ll provide a high dose of much-needed relaxation. First, a luxury collaboration between Cohiba Cigars and Weller Bourbon, followed by 20th Anniversary blends from Gran Habano & Flor de Gonzalez. Both plan to bring the party to your humidor. Let’s get down to the details!


Weller by Cohiba

Wrapper: Ecuador Sumatra Maduro
Binder: Barrel-Aged Connecticut Broadleaf
Filler: Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, & Honduras

A collaboration with Weller Bourbon, the cigar features a Connecticut Broadleaf binder aged inside bourbon barrels. This gives the flavors a smoky, yet fruity quality that perfectly pairs with Weller’s award-winning bourbons. Additionally, we found notes of cedar, honey, and a bevy of warm spices…a winter cigar if there ever was one!

These luxury smokes will make a great gift for any smoker, even if it’s a gift to yourself. Try the blend and let me know if you agree.

 

Gran Habano 20th Aniversario

Wrapper: Nicaragua Corojo
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Colombia, Nicaragua, & Peru

They’ve transcended their bespoke roots to become a household name—yet their quality has never fallen short. To celebrate, George Rico did what he does best: made one hell of a cigar. Gran Habano 20th Aniversario features a worldly blend featuring tobaccos from Nicaragua and rare leaves from Colombia and Peru. One caveat…he’s only made 4000 boxes, so you’ll need to be quick on the button if you want to celebrate, too!

 

Flor de Gonzalez 20th Anniversary

Wrapper: Ecuador Connecticut Shade/Connecticut Broadleaf
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler:
Nicaragua

You get a choice of a mellower Ecuador Connecticut, aged 8 years, or a brawnier Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro. Expect a smooth creaminess with traces of spice from the natural wrapper and bolder layers of coffee, cocoa, and sweet spices from the Maduro. No matter which blend you choose, your taste buds are going to revel in the flavor. Boxes of each size are limited to 1500…get in on this party fast if you plan on attending!
