Top 5 Cigars for After Your Last Kid Moves Out


It all began with a kiss and several decades later, here we are. All of those kids have graduated from college, signed over to Uncle Sam, or were dropped by the side of the freeway when they turn 18 so that they might learn a few lessons from the School of Hard Knocks.

Now that your last has left the nest, it's finally time for you to enjoy a well-earned smoke. Afterward, you can start packing up kid stuff, scheduling yard sales, and figuring out what to do with all your newly acquired money, time and space.

Padron Family Reserve

In the past, these smokes were made exclusively for the Padron, but now they've been sent out into the world, like your dear children. One difference is that the Padron family doesn't expect these cigars to show up on their doorstep four years from now asking to move back in. With a 95 rating, we're betting very few of these will be shared at all. You need a complex, flavorful dish to celebrate the peace and quiet of your new home, and this is our top choice.

Romeo y Julieta Vintage

Now you're going back in time to when you had the house exclusively to yourselves. It's a vintage experience and deserves a vintage cigar. From the ancient house of Romeo y Julieta, this cigar features a light golden brown Connecticut wrapper and peppery sweetness. A nice, easygoing smoke with beautiful flavors that's perfect for passing the hours in total solitude.

San Cristobal Elegancia

“Elegancia” means you can have nice things again. No teenage boys are tumbling through the room like boulders after an avalanche. There will be no moody young girls slamming doors and telling you why you are the worst parent ever for having enforced healthy boundaries.

Your home is truly your castle now. Set something expensive on a table. Bask in your glory.

Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour

No more staying up to “The Late Hour” to track wandering little ones. Now you can go to bed at the natural parental bedtime of roughly 7:45 pm—it's good to have an empty nest, isn’t it?

You could stay up doing fun stuff—how does a person have fun, again? Don't worry, it will come back to you soon. And if it doesn't, then just buy a Harley. Fun just comes with them.

Featuring dark dessert flavors as a result of being aged in Speyside whiskey barrels for six months, this smoke is sure to make your new bedtime routine a glorious experience.

Montecristo Espada Estoque

An “espada estoque” is a traditional matador's sword. You've fought the bull (perhaps many bulls) and won. Your children are grown now. Take a bow, enjoy the applause, and watch the flowers rain.

This cigar delivers a medium-full strength smoke and combines rare and vintage tobaccos. Take a puff and be transported to a simpler time.

The next round of asking for funds from the Bank of Mom and Dad should arrive in three… two… one…
