Beautiful, easygoing cigars, with just a touch of strength to keep them interesting – that’s what you’ll find in our 5-packs of the best mild-medium cigars. We’re a long way from a potent, intense cigar pack from of our full strength category. This group features packs of cigars that aren’t all the way down the scale to mild, but that are a little notch above, with enough impact that they couldn’t be called the gentlest cigars out there.
You might be wondering: how do you measure the strength of a cigar?
Well, the truth is, cigars aren’t generally measured in a lab and assigned a strength rating. There’s no scientist in a lab coat watching a maduro burn, vacuuming up the smoke, and checking the nicotometer (not actually a thing) give a readout for how much nicotine is present. A cigar pack is a premium handmade product that still is created in the “Old World” way of doing things. And of course, that’s a huge part of the allure. The best cigars aren’t made in a factory – tobacco leaves go from the field to the curing barn to the roller’s hands. When you pick one up, you know you’re holding a cigar with tobacco that came from the ground. Modern factory precision and grading haven’t made their way to the cigar industry yet, so the answer to our question is: cigar experts at the company that made the cigars assign them their strength rating based on subjective test smoking.
They’re generally on point. These guys have been blowing cigar smoke since before half of us were born.
For a mild-medium cigar 5 pack, the experts tried them out and found that they were fairly gentle cigars, but not so gentle that they could be called “mild.” There was still a little buzz going that led the experts to categorize the smoke from cigars as mild-medium. The reason cigars vary from one stick to the next is due to the leaf chosen for each blend. The more Ligero leaf a cigar has, the stronger the “high” you’ll get from smoking it. Ligero leaf is harvested from the top of the tobacco plant. It gets the most sun and grows to be the most robust, packed with nicotine that gives the leaf its ultimate strength when smoked. As you can guess, a cigar found in a mild-medium 5 pack typically doesn’t have much Ligero in the filler blend. And for the record, strength should not be confused with body (how the smoke feels in your mouth) or flavor (how many tastes and aromas you can detect in the smoke, and how potent they are).
This category of 5 packs features mild medium cigars from the best cigar companies in the world. Here you’ll find mild-medium smoke from Aging Room, Arturo Fuente, Rocky Patel, Warped, Drew Estate, and lots more. Not only is a cigar 5 pack excellent for sharing and gift-giving, but they’re also the real cigar aficionado’s way to try a new blend. A single stick always carries the risk that you’ll get a dud and write off an entire cigar line, missing out on something that everyone else is happily puffing away on. 5-packs of mild-medium cigars let you give a blend a full try before making your opinion. In the end, it’s about ensuring that you get more cigars to enjoy, and nothing else. The five pack is here to save you, maximizing your cigar experience as you sample everything the cigar world has to offer.
