10 Cigars for New Dads

It's a classic time to fire up a smoke: the birth of your child. Here are our top picks for cigars for new dads to enjoy when your whole life is about to get completely effed up (in the most adorable way).

#1. Arturo Fuente Opus X
Screw it - go for broke. You've created life and a one-dollar smoke just isn't good enough. Smoke one of the best sticks the cigar world has to offer. It's all downhill from here!

#2. Padron Special Release
Again, you're headed into the nightmare that is infant care - treat yourself with something delicious. This cigar is 80 years in the making (unlike the rushed nine-month project your wife is calling your heir).

#3. Drew Estate MUWAT
MUWAT stands for, "My Uzi Weighs a Ton," which is what you'll be saying to scare the crap out of your kids when they act up, or to freak out the less promising guys your precious little girl brings home in later years. Either way, smoke softly and carry a big stick.

#4. Ashton VSG
This one's on the list just because it's super tasty. Full body and Ashton's most popular stick mean there's no wrong time to fire it up.

#5. Oliva Serie V Maduro
It looks intense, but it's actually a fairly mild experience. This is the opposite of your new bundle of joy, who looks mild but just might wreck your whole damn life in about 5 nights.

#6. My Father Limited Edition Collection
The name is right. The package is unforgettable. The cigar is a beauty. Pop open a box of these and you'll have your buddies asking to be adopted too.

#7. La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse
You're now one of the nobility. You are the ruler of a tiny, tiny domain. But you're still the ruler! No one can question that (except your "subject," who will do so almost every minute of every day for the next 18 years).

#8. Rocky Patel Sungrown Maduro
This was the #2 cigar of the year in 2016. Smoke it after your second child is born, if you're crazy enough to go for another round.

#9. Drew Estate Deadwood Tobacco Co.
These cigars are named "Fat Bottom Betty," "Crazy Alice," and "Sweet Jane." Smoke these to be reminded of your wild bygone days spent chasing tail. If you get nostalgic, you can always chase after that little rascal tearing off down the hall with your lighter.

#10. Oliva Serie V Nub
You don't have any time to smoke and this cigar is short. It's perfect. Hey, is that 3 am screaming I hear? Better go get that. It's your turn, honey. Enjoy that cigar while you can.
