Get Your Springtime Cigar Collection Ready!


Springtime is upon us and that means plenty of time spent outdoors golfing, fishing, swimming, and just relaxing on the patio. It’s the perfect time to sit back and enjoy the fresh weather and light up your favorite cigars. Spring break on the lake or the beach can be a fantastic time to relax and have a puff or two on some mild to medium bodied stogies that won’t get you tired or too mellow. Likewise, if you decide to go camping and take part in all the fun up in the mountains the right cigar can make all the difference.

First, a recommendation for a day out on the golf course or out on the house boat with your friends. Golf is certainly a game that’ll allow you to enjoy a longer lasting cigar and going boating is also a place where you don’t have to worry about the time commitment of a longer smoke session. The Romeo y Julieta Cedro De Luxe No. 1 is a great cigar for this type of event. It’s a lonsdale shape 6×42 that is medium bodied and made using a blend of Brazilian and Dominican long-filler tobaccos, a binder from Connecticut, and a Sumatra wrapper. This is a delicious selection that will make for a most memorable experience.

Next, if your planning on a trip to the beach or to do some hiking this spring, you may need a smoke that’s slightly smaller and less of a time restraint. The Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente Natural is a cigar that is short and stout, but offers a great medium bodied smoking experience and is made with high quality Dominican tobaccos.

Finally, for your mountain camping trips filled with fishing, shooting rifles, and drinking some good quality beer, a great cigar can be an enlightening experience. This is definitely a venue that allows you to express yourself with the style of your cigar. The Padron Series 1964 Torpedo Natural is one of the finest cigars made and available for purchase in the US. The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series was introduced in 1994 to commemorate the company’s 30th anniversary. The beautiful Nicaraguan tobacco is box pressed and shaped into a torpedo with perfection. It’s a cigar with a near flawless draw and one of the most complex cigars made.

These are just a few cigars that work best during springtime that’ll allow you to relax and smoke them without too long of a commitment, and will also keep you from being weighed down with too heavy of a body or flavor. Cigars with a slightly smaller ring gauge and a lighter colored wrapper are the ones that usually fit the mold of a springtime cigar.
