The Best Cigar – What Is
Reading the title of this post you are probably thinking, what the hell kind of question is that! You might be surprised that this question gets asked by new comers of the cigar world more than you think. I have had countless emails asking me what is the best cigar or what is the best cheap cigar. So I’m going to take the question and answer it once and for all. If you are new to the cigar hobby and was thinking about this question you might be a little surprised but then it will make sense.
The Best Cigar? Some people automatically think that Cuban cigars are the best cigars because shouldn’t they be, right? I mean they are Cuban! The answer here is maybe and maybe not lol. Before the trade embargo Cuban cigars were considered the best cigars in the world. Since then other countries have started to make premium cigars that in some opinions are just as good or better than today’s Cuban cigars.
Many countries today produce top premium cigars including Honduras, Dominican Republic and Nicaragua from mild, medium and full in strength. So which is the best cigar? Some websites and cigar magazines put out a list every year naming the best cigar of the year, does that make it the best? I mean if every site lists a different cigar as the best then which is it?
This is where my favorite cigar related quote comes into play that I think answers the question what is the best cigar. “No one can tell me what is a good cigar – for me. I am the only judge. People who claim to know say that I smoke the worst cigars in the world. They bring their own cigars when they come to my house.”
No one is the same, some might like the same flavor profiles but no one is the same. Only you can decide what is the best cigar in your opinion. The sites and magazines that post the top cigars of the year are releasing their opinion on what the best is. I hate to say it but I think that some decisions even have to do with advertising. I’m not saying to not read reviews and due some research. You can find if cigars have a reputation of burning good/bad if they are more mild or strong, etc. I’m just saying what the person writing the review thinks of the flavor and what you might think may not be the same.
So my suggestion to you is if you are new to the cigar hobby to smoke, smoke, smoke. Find a cigar that you really enjoy and then by a box. Smoking different cigars is part of this hobby. Maybe find a reviewer that mostly lines up with what you like. If you can find someone that shares the same profile liking as you the chances are better that you might agree with their review.
You can of course let people know what you think of a cigar if you would like to post a cigar review of your own. If you would like to learn more about cigars you can visit the Cigar Tips section or the cigar reviews posted by everyday people like you.
