If you love great taste and better looks combined with the finest cigars ever made, don't miss checking out the coolest looking cigars around.
If you want to be the hippest cat at the cigar bar you will want to get your hands on a few of these beauties. To create this list I took into account the actual appearance of the cigar itself, the band, and packaging. Of course, these cigars are of high quality and full flavored and will appeal to even the most discerning cigar aficionados.
ACID Blondie Candela
The pig-tailed ACID Blondie will definitely catch your eye. ACID Blondie Candela (from master blender Willy Herrera) is a mysterious blend of aromatic infused tobaccos enclosed in a sweet, mint green Candela wrapper creating notes of tea and sugar. The artwork on the box was designed by DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) Brooklyn industrial graffiti artist Scott (ACID) Chester - hence the name. You can check out his work at www.acidnyc.com.
Esteban Carreras Chupacabra Hellcat Hellcatito
Even the name is awesome! This “biker” cigar from Esteban Carreras is box pressed with a pigtail and shaggy foot. This Chupacabra Hellcat Petite Corona consists of a gorgeous dark brown San Andres wrapper and hearty Nicaraguan tobaccos. The cigar is encased in wax paper and foot band in order to protect its beautiful wrap. The Hellcat blend also comes in larger sizes. The Hellcat Robusto Grande was awarded the #3 Cigar of the Year by Cigar & Spirits Magazine in 2016.
Gurkha Ghost Angel Torpedo
The Gurkha Ghost is a sleek and stylish cigar that showcases a dark Brazilian, Arapiraca Maduro wrapper, complemented by an aged Criollo 1998 Binder and carefully selected Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. It comes in a stylish Jet Black tube with eye-catching graphics. The Ghost is a rich, medium bodied cigar with a multi-layered flavor profile providing sweet and earthy undertones with lingering flavors of cocoa and cinnamon. The Gurkha Ghost Shadow is a Robusto sized smoke presented with an elegant yet sinister holographic band with black and silver accents.
Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan Toro Barber Pole
Alec Bradley has annually released their stupendously popular Filthy Hooligan line of cigars since 2013. It features a very cool barber pole wrapper design which intertwines a light green Candela leaf with a dark Nicaraguan Jalapa leaf. The cigar is a medium-bodied smoke which also includes Honduran and Panamanian fillers to provide a complexity that is very unique. Truly one of a kind.
Arturo Fuente Añejo Reserva Shark # 77 Xtra Viejo
Only released twice a year around Father’s Day and Christmas, Arturo Fuente Añejo Reserva Shark # 77 is one of the rarest cigars in the world. The most sought-after and famous shape, the No. 77, or Shark as it is commonly known, is the first torpedo shaped cigar that builds from a rounded Parejo shape to a square press. This Añejo cigar combines select premium Dominican filler and binder from Chateau de la Fuente with a 5-year-old Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper aged in a Cognac barrel. The pedigree filler comes from the same as the Opus X, Don Carlos, and Hemingway. The dark brown Maduro wrapper has an intense cognac aroma with hints of cinnamon. Grab them if ya see them!
East India Classic Havana Blend Toro
The East India Classic Cigar Havana Blend is made at American Caribbean Tobacco S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua. The Havana Blend is crafted with a chocolatey Mexican San Andres wrapper box-pressed and loaded with Nicaraguan proprietary binder and fillers creating a medium to full-bodied smoke. The East India Trading Company Classic Havana delivers an intensely lush smoke that is at once rich, complex and smooth. The cigar is attractive with an earthy aroma and permeates with notes of peppery spice, sweet chocolate, and nuts. Each cigar sports an extra-large band in white with touches of black and gold. The Classic Havana Blend Toro comes in a box of 24 in a collectible wooden crate.
