Special occasions arise from time to time. Weddings, anniversaries, the birth of a child, and even promotions are often celebrated. Cigars can often enhance a special occasion and make them more memorable.
Trying to choose a perfect cigar for your special occasion is subjective. Everyone has different taste, different preferences, and everyone has a different opinion on the definition of ‘special’ or ‘perfect’. We have come up with a few tips to help choose that special smoke.
A Special Day Deserves a Special Smoke
A special occasion deserves a cigar that is going to enhance the experience. It is your special day, and you shouldn’t settle for anything less than a perfect smoke. Cigars made with rare tobaccos, and cigars made in limited quantities are often thought of when thinking of a special occasion smoke.
Here are Fat-Ash Cigar Magazines top 5 special occasion cigars:
1. Padron 50th Anniversary
The Padron 50th Anniversary has all of the luster and makings of a special occasion cigar. It is aged 10 years, the cigar is made in limited quantities, and it is only sold to a few select retailers.
2. Fuente Fuente OpusX
Rare, pricey, and worth every penny. This is one of our favorites of all time. Who wouldn’t want a creamy smoke with bold robust flavors that is complemented by a hint of cedar? It is made with some of the rarest tobaccos, and this smoke is perfect for any special occasion
3. Davidoff Colorado Claro “R”
To us, this is one of Davidoff’s best cigars. This cigar has an amazing flavor profile, which changes throughout the smoke. The Double Robusto is far from one-dimensional, and it sports a nice Davidoff band to show-off on your occasion.
4. Cohiba Behike BHK
The Cohiba Behike BHK is rolled with some of the finest leaves. This smoke is rare, amazing, and it has a price tag to back it up. This would be a great celebratory stick.
5. Liga Privada No. 9
You can never go wrong with a Liga Privada No. 9. This smoke is a little easier to find than most others on this list. However, this cigar is made with great tobacco and proves to be consistently great. That makes this cigar a highly sought after smoke.
Sharing Your Day With Friends
Nothing makes a special day more special than sharing it with your friends and family. Make sure to think of them when you are picking out your celebratory smokes. Enhance your special day by having a smoke with some of your closest buddies.
You might have friends that are not everyday smokers. A special occasion might tempt them to light up a cigar and enjoy the celebration. A beginner needs to be eased into the cigar experience, and a bold smoke might be a little too much for them to handle. Think about these friends when picking out your celebratory smokes.
You do not want to turn novice smokers away from the cigar lifestyle. Start them out with something mild such as a Connecticut with a great taste profile. Hopefully, they will enjoy the celebration and become a new BOTL.
