With such amazing selections for women at El Cigar Shop, why not indulge the special mom in your life with a cigar this Mother’s Day?
Once known only to be a man’s pastime, more and more women have taken up cigar smoking. For the modern woman, smoking cigars is intriguing, slightly dangerous, and sexy, but most of all relaxing and enjoyable. This Mother’s Day, celebrate the woman in your life with premium cigars and a bottle of her favorite libation. And don’t forget the flowers!
Some cigars are marketed directly to women. These are considered “Lady Cigars”, which women may find to be a stereotype, but everyone’s palate differs. I have included some mild, some infused, and some rich and savory cigars that I enjoy, and I hope other women do too.
Mother's Day Cigar Recommendations
ACID by Drew Estate is one of the most unique cigars on the market. ACID Kuba Kuba is an infused Robusto with over 150 aromatics, herbs, and essential oils combining to produce an interesting smoke with a floral bouquet. Hints of clove, herbs, tea and lilac bear an intriguing aroma.
Arturo Fuente creates magnificent cigars and Gran Reserva Hemingway Short Story is proof. "A Very Short Story" is a vignette written by Ernest Hemingway in 1924 Paris. The story is based on the real-life affair Hemingway had with a nurse he met in Milan during World War I. To make a short story even shorter… a soldier meets a nurse and falls in love with her. He receives a “Dear John” letter stating she fell in love with another officer. The devastated soldier ignores her pleas to take her back and has an affair with a stranger in a taxi, and contracts gonorrhea. I recommend you don’t tell your wife this story. The classic, sexy cigar is silky smooth with deep rich flavors of sweet citrus and spicy cedar.
CAO Moontrance is a delectable fruity number. The blend of vanilla, bourbon, and fruit is so divine even the novice cigar smoker will enjoy it thoroughly. The mother of your child will love this flavorful cigar!
Macanudo Café Portofino is light in body with creamy notes of café au lait and a touch of pepper flavor on the palate. Treat the special woman in your life with a Macanudo Café and a cup of coffee in bed.
Oliva Serie V Melanio is a Figurado with a blend of Nicaraguan Habano leaf highlighting the region of the Jalapa Valley. The premium cigar has notes of coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, and earthy spice. The Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado was named the number one “Cigar of the Year” in 2014 by Cigar Aficionado Magazine. A true winner for Mom if she loves a full bodied stogie.
Padrón Serie 1926 No. 2 is a marriage of the finest 5-year aged Nicaraguan tobaccos and golden Natural wrapper.

Perdomo Reserve Champagne 10th Anniversary is hugged by a stunning, triple-fermented 6 year old Connecticut shade wrapper.

The Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Love Story is a carefully balanced blend of Dominican leaf spiced with Nicaraguan ligero leaf finished with a blonde Connecticut Shade seed wrapper from Ecuador. Slightly mellow with a woodsy, nutty flavor.
San Cristobal Elegancia is a mellower version of Ashton’s San Cristobal line yet they are still medium to full-bodied and full of flavor. A blonde Connecticut wrapper encloses Nicaraguan filler and binder. She’ll be presented with lush notes of cream, toasted walnuts, cocoa and a touch of cedar.
