5 Cigars to Enjoy This Spring

Spring Cigars


Spring is coming and we're looking forward to a big change in our smoking life: Instead of smoking inside and looking out at the snow, we'll be smoking indoors and looking out at the greenery!

We kid, we kid. 

While we will always smoke wherever we damn well please (so long as everyone allows it), when spring comes around, we want to go outside.

These are our top five picks for the glorious new season. Our condolences go out to anyone with allergies who are going to suffer for the next few months as nature sprays itself all over the place.

Drew Estate - Nica Rustica

When you think "rustic," you probably think of humble, rural areas where people still go outside, right? Good. Us too.

Just like a trip to the countryside will make you feel like you're using your senses for the first time, this smoke is a shot right to your olfactory nerve—BIG time flavor thanks to Nicaraguan Esteli and Jalapa long-fillers and a Mexican San Andres binder. 

Just like nature coming back to life, you'll be woken up for real with every draw.

San Cristobal - Elegancia

Ah, flowers—you've been missed. Your stunning colors... as you gracefully dance in the breeze... and the gentle elegance with which you remind us to savor life's pleasures.

Like this stogie from San Cristobal.

This is a medium-bodied smoke that emits creamy and nutty smoke with just a hint of spice. An artful combination, like a meadow reborn. 

Or, you know, something you can smoke when you go muddin'. Your call.

Davidoff - Colorado Claro

After all those grey days, we can finally see the blue sky again. Claro, Madre Naturaleza.

The best of the earth has been revived in this cigar. The profile is deep and complex, with strong woody notes. The complex flavors of nuts, leather, earth, and everything else you'd expect from a cigar are there in this 92-rated series with a fresh Connecticut wrapper from Ecuador.

Pop this one out and toast Mother Nature on another fine trip around the sun.

Rocky Patel - Cri-Ojo

Sensitive to spring? You'll be cri-ing for a while yet. But maybe a bunch of smoke can cancel it out?

What? It makes it worse? 

Ah well, the rest of us will smoke one in your honor—and this one's a doozy! Earthy flavors, a smell reminiscent of charred meat on the grill, and even some sweeter notes here and there. 

We'll shed a tear for our brothers and sisters who can't enjoy delicious smokes during allergy season.

Montecristo - Media Noche

Forget all this sweetness and light! Are you a Creature of Darkness? Here's a smoke for you to enjoy this season. After the sun goes down and all that photosynthesis takes a break, fire up this cigar in the middle of the night and puff away.

With a fragrant, oily Maduro wrapper, this one delivers full flavor to enjoy while you stare into the dark sky and contemplate another miserable sun-shiny day to come.
