Our Top 5 Must Try Cigars to Start 2017 Off Right
The New Year brings many things along with it: New Year's resolutions, new loves, new opportunities... so why not add new cigars to your list as well? Here are five new cigars we have in stock that we recommend you must try!
1. Padron 3000 Maduro
The 3000 is great for an "everyday" cigar; they are well constructed, consistent, and affordable. The dark Nicaraguan wrapper and signature band embody the characteristics of the Padron Series, but the size and gauge of the 3000 create a significant difference in taste. The Padron 3000 Maduro exhibits notes of spice, leather, coffee, and chocolate. Don't be fooled this cigar may look small, but it packs a bold punch you will want to try.
Origin: Nicaragua Format: Corona Gorda Wrapper: Nicaragua Size: 5 ½ " x 52 Filler: Nicaragua Binder: Nicaragua
2. Rocky Patel A-10
The A-10 is a tribute to the tenth anniversary of the Rocky Patel Premium Cigars’ Edge line. It also pays homage to the first two wrappers, the Corojo and Maduro, that started it all by incorporating them in a barber-pole format. The Maduro wrapper exhibits notes of espresso and coffee while the Corojo side produces a nice cedar and white pepper note. The flavors alternated nicely neither overpowering the other, with a burn time just about 2 hours long.

3. Macanudo Inspirato
As it is described by Jhonys Diaz, Vice President Operations at General Cigar Dominicana, “Our aim was to create a cigar for the discerning smoker that was to be stronger than the original Macanudo, somewhat more piquant, savory, peppery and with a creamy sweetish basic tone.” This cigar is sold exclusively at brick and mortar cigar shops across the country. These spicy, sweet, rich, and complex cigars are handcrafted in Honduras, the medium- to full-bodied Inspirado Orange cigars are blended with hand-selected premium tobaccos from several of the top growing regions of the world. The Dominican Olor/Piloto Cubano, Honduran Jamastran, and Nicaraguan Ometepe fillers are bound in Honduran Jamastran and enclosed in a Honduran wrapper grown in Olancho's San Agustin Valley. The wait we had to endure to get our hands on a Macanudo Inspirado Orange may have been longer than we wanted, but we think you will admit it was worth it.
Wrapper: Honduras/Olancho San Agustin Binder: Honduras Filler: D.R., Honduras, Nicaragua Factory: HATSA Tasting Notes: Complex, medium-bodied smoke with a lingering sweetness
4. New World Connecticut by A.J. Fernandez
A tribute to Christopher Columbus and the discovery of tobacco in 1492, the original New World was the first cigar created by the Cuban-born master blend and his father, Ismael. New World Connecticut is not a box-pressed release like its predecessor. It features a genuine US Connecticut Shade wrapper, San Andres binder, and long-fillers from Brazil and Nicaragua resulting in a complex yet buttery, smooth experience. The New World Connecticut is a medium bodied cigar. You will experience notes of cream, wood, and almonds in a very well balanced and refined cigar.

5. Acid Kuba Kuba
The notorious Kuba Kuba was one of the first cigars released by ACID. This hearty Robusto is composed of Nicaraguan Cuban-seed long filler tobaccos that are covered in a clean-cut Connecticut shade-grown wrapper. The aroma will instantly tell you this is a perfumed cigar and leaves a sweet taste on your lips, but that will only last for the first 15 minutes of burn time. The finished product is infused with natural herbs and essential oils for an astoundingly distinct flavor and sweet floral aroma.
