Super Bowl LIV Cigar Recommendations
#1. Asylum 13 came up with a way to not only make a thick, long cigar, but also one that tastes good. The Asylum 13 ( 8 x 80 ) is a lot of cigar for the money. The Nicaraguan Puro is a blend of aged tobaccos and finished with a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. The blend creates notes of cocoa, espresso, and earthiness with a hint of sweetness. It’s truly a large, and eventful cigar.
#2. Arturo Fuente Double Chateau Maduro is a double Toro ( 6.75 x 50 ) that comes with a cedar sleeve containing a dark, oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and aged Dominican filler tobaccos from the legendary Fuente farm. This is a mild to medium-bodied smoke but still very flavorful. Rich and nutty with hints of cocoa, the wrapper adds a sweet, spicy quality.
#3. Alec Bradley Magic Toast Gordo ( 6 x 60 ) has a stunningly dark Honduran wrapper with a recipe of lush toasty Nicaraguan and Honduran fillers and binders. Magic Toast presents warm notes of espresso, rich dark chocolate, cherry, and pepper. Magic Toast is a special occasion cigar that comes at a price that's more than worthy of a few cheers.
#4. CAO Flathead V770 Big Block is a box-pressed monster ( 7 x 70 ) with a dark Maduro Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and hearty Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fill tobaccos that have been bound with a spicy Connecticut Habano seed binder from Ecuador. It’s a full-bodied stogie with an earthiness that you’ll love, and also includes notes of leather, spice, pepper and dark coffee.
#5. CLE Prieto Gordo ( 6 x 60 ) is the third installment in Christian Eiroa’s CLE brand. Unlike most cigars created by Eiroa, Prieto is one of the very few that does not feature a single Honduran leaf. Instead, the cigar carries a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan filler. CLE Prieto starts out with a blast of pepper then fades out into a complex mix of chocolate, spice, gingerbread, espresso, and bold natural tobacco flavors. This is one victorious cigar!
#6. Gurkha Bourbon Collection is a unique Churchill ( 7.25 x 52 ) with a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper and Dominican fillers infused with Hartfield Bourbon. You’ll be greeted with notes of warm aged Kentucky bourbon, cocoa and nuts. These unique cigars are something to enjoy with your favorite bourbon, neat or on the rocks.
#7. The illusione Gigantes is a Gran Toro ( 6 x 56 ) crafted with a flawless Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper and Cuban-Style Aganorsa long-filler leaves from Nicaragua. It also utilizes two binders: a Criollo ‘98 leaf from Estelí and a Corojo ‘99 from the Jalapa Valley. Medium-bodied, illusione Gigantes is full of earthy flavors of cocoa, salty nuts, leather, and pepper. Also, a sweet creaminess and true tobacco notes emanate from the Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper. The well-aged Aganorsa filler leaves add a kicked-up notch of strength, and a unique flavor and floral aroma. The size of the illusione Gigantes contributes to an additional earthy depth. An excellent smoke at an excellent price from elcigarshop.com when you shop online.
#8. Montecristo White Churchill ( 7 x 54 ) series features a hand-selected Connecticut Shade Ecuadorian wrapper and Nicaraguan binder, packed with a blend of aged Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. The result is a warm and complex medium-bodied smoke with notes of vanilla, pepper, and a creamy nutty finish. This oversized Churchill is sure to last the big Game!
#9. Oliva Serie V Melanio Double Toro ( 6 x 60 ) is hand rolled with fermented and aged longleaf ligeros from the Nicaraguan regions of Estelí, Condega and, the most coveted leaf from Jalapa Valley. They are all wrapped in a dark and oily Ecuadorian Sumatra leaf. Each Serie V Melanio is a well-rounded, full-bodied cigar with notes of baked bread, black pepper and cocoa and hints of caramel, buttered toast, and coffee with cream. An outstanding smoke for an outstanding day!
#10. Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Champagne is comprised of a fine, Cuban-seed Nicaraguan blend of extensively aged tobaccos blanketed in a triple-fermented Natural Connecticut shade wrapper. The Super Toro ( 6 x 60 ) has nuances of rich Nicaraguan tobacco, coffee, creamy undertones, and subtle sweet honey.
Enjoy the Super Bowl!!!!
