2019 Holiday Gift Guide  

1. A cigar enthusiast can never have enough accessories. A Vector IRONFIST triple torch cigar lighter is sure to stay with your cigar-loving friend for a very long time. The triple flame luxurious lighter with cigar punch is made of strong durable materials and can last for generations.


2. A Cigar Caddy Travel Humidor is the perfect humidor for the outdoor or water sports aficionado. Not only is it watertight to depths well beyond 100 feet, but it is also made with a fiber-glass reinforced ABS resin that is virtually indestructible. The travel humidor protects Churchill length cigars in various quantities (depending on its size) and includes a humidifier. Please note that the clasps for the Cigar Caddy brand are designed to be easily removable for easy replacement.


3. The 60 Gauge Stainless Steel Cigar Tube is an impressive carrier for a single cigar. Add an El Cigar's Family Series Sawyer- Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon Infused Toro and you have an elegant gift.


4. Different kinds of cigars call for different styles of cigar cutters, such as a guillotine (straight), punch, or V-cut. You’ll find a number of impressive cutter options that are pocket-friendly. Brands such as Vector and Palio make a great stocking stuffer. 


5. Like a lot of gift buyers, you may not be intimately acquainted with your cigar lover’s likes and dislikes. That’s no cause for alarm or discouragement, though. You can always select from an expansive selection of cigar samplers. Many cigar samplers are available in quantities of 5 or 10 cigars from premium brands such as AJ Fernandez, Gurkha, and Rocky Patel. El Cigar Shop also offers the premium Perdomo Humi Pack 4 Cigar Sampler in a choice of a Sun Grown, Maduro or Connecticut wrapper. The unique LEAF by Oscar 6 x 60 pack, with four different wrappers, will stun your cigar enthusiast.


6. EP Carrillo Encore is a Nicaraguan Puro made in the Dominican Republic. The blend is part of the “Family Series” portfolio. The tobacco is specially aged in a technique called tercios. Tercios is the process of bailing the tobacco and wrapping it in the bark of palm trees. This aging technique supplies a unique flavor profile. The Majestic was rated 96 and #1 Cigar of 2018 by Cigar Aficionado!


7. La Palina Goldie 2019 is a limited-edition Churchill cigar that’s only released in small quantities. The Goldie is a blend of  Ecuadoran binder and filler leaf from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic and a touch of Nicaraguan medio tiempo leaf in the filler enrobed in a golden Ecuadorian wrapper. The rare Medio tiempo is prized for its rich smoking characteristics. Distinct notes of cashew are followed by flavors of vanilla, oak, cinnamon, cocoa, with a floral touch in the finish. There is also a nice amount of white pepper on the retro hale. La Palina Goldie is a fine addition to any cigar aficionado’s humidor. 


8. My Father Cigars are beautifully dressed with festive silk ribbons and intricate detailed bands. My Father The Judge has a cinnamon toned Ecuadorian Sumatra Oscuro wrapper along with a selection of Nicaraguan tobaccos grown on the Garcia family’s private reserve. The Judge has a wonderful flavor profile of toasted almonds, cedar, cocoa, and the signature spicy pepper.


9. La Opulencia is a blend of an opulent Mexican Rosado Oscuro wrapper and rich flavorful Nicaraguan fillers. The premium cigar is smooth and creamy with notes of cocoa, leather with sweet nuances of nougat and anise. The My Father La Opulencia received a 95-rating and was named the #2 Cigar of 2018.


10. Also, from My Father, is the La Antiguedad. This cigar is a blend of a red-hued Ecuadorian Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper, double Nicaraguan binders (one Criollo, the other Corojo) and Nicaraguan tobaccos that produce a complex, smooth medium to full-bodied cigar. Tasting notes of cocoa, roasted coffee beans, leather, and black pepper round out this well-crafted cigar.


11. Pairing a fine cigar with a fine libation is never a bad thing. A gift of a Padrón 1964 Maduro paired with a bottle of Bulleit Frontier Whiskey is an elegant choice. With its high-rye recipe, the whiskey displays oak, vanilla, and orange peel.  As it plays on your palate, there arises flavors of fruits, and spices like pepper, cinnamon, and anise. A Padrón along with a Bulleit Frontier, attracts the sweet marzipan out of the cigar, while the Bourbon's rye spice is exposed to great effect. This incredible pairing accentuates the cigar's spice and toast, giving it creamy orange notes, while it shows off the bourbon’s essence of vanilla. Absolutely delicious!
