Boy, did you choose an unusual cigar shape to check out! Salomon Cigars are grouped together with diademas as a decently huge type of cigar. 6 or 7 (or more) inches long and a ring gauge in the 50s is typical for salomones, but there’s no fixed standard that all companies adhere to. The real signature of a Salomon cigar is the shape: a tapered and narrow head at the top and a bulbous foot at the bottom with a nipple tip.
Now, if you’ve ever tried to roll a standard parejo cigar with straight sides and a simple dome head, you’d know that it’s tricky to get right. Rolling up Salomon Cigars is quite a bit harder. Even a skilled roller loses some production capacity when he or she is tasked with making salomones, but the result can be worth it when you’re in the mood for a good long smoking session. These cigars are great for full Sunday sessions, campfires you’re going to be drinking around for a few hours while the sun sets, a morning of golf, or something else substantial. Salomon Cigars aren’t the “sneak away for a quick fix” kind of cigar.
They’re the “Hold My Calls, I’ll be away for a while” kind of smoke.
We stock a number of really fine premium Salomon Cigars in our inventory. A few of our favorites include La Flor Dominicana Andalusian Bull, Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V, Arturo Fuente Casa Fuente 10th Anniversary, Davidoff Nicaragua, and AVO Domaine No. 50. These large-format cigars offer full flavor and a nice lengthy smoking time that can easily stretch to two hours. It really depends on how much you’re drawing on your stogie. People who huff like a meth head getting ready to sprint from coast to coast can probably suck these cigars down pretty fast, but the people who smoke Salomon Cigars to relax will find that they take a lot longer than a standard Robusto or any other mid-size cigar.
Salomones are easy to light and easy to enjoy. If you’ve never experienced a Salomon and you’re ready for something a little new in your humidor, pick up a five-pack and test a few out. They might just become your new favorite big cigar.
