The top 5 cigars you have to try

The top 5 cigars you have to try

We often get asked what our favourite cigar is and of course it’s almost impossible to choose just one! However, we thought we’d put together a little list to guide you on some of our top recommendations. We believe that there’s a cigar for every occasion but we’ve tried to incorporate a range of different cigars across the spectrum for you to try.


According to Nick Melillo, the esteemed President of the Foundation Cigar Co., the Charter Oak Connecticut cigar represents a heartfelt homage to his cherished home state of Connecticut. Moreover, Melillo's vision was to craft an economically viable cigar that could be relished on a daily basis and suit any occasion with utmost gratification. The Charter Oak Connecticut, a testament to his aspirations, effortlessly exceeds this very objective. This exquisite cigar boasts a handsomely draped Connecticut shade wrapper embracing a Sumatran binder, delicately enclosing a meticulously blended filler sourced from the renowned regions of Jalapa and Estelí in Nicaragua.


Plasencia has been known and respected for producing excellent-quality tobacco by numerous manufacturers over the years, and it only made sense that eventually they would release their very own eponymous brand. Reserva Original is the world's first and only organic cigar made completely with tobacco certified by the Organic Crop Improvement Association, with 100% of its components aged an additional five years after curing and fermentation


Here we have the epitome of smoothness and, unlike the other Nicaraguan cigars on our list, this cigar delivers a full body taste. There are rich coffee and chocolate tones present and a well-balanced spice is present throughout. Although a little more expensive than other new world cigars on offer, the quality of tobacco and overall flavour is clear from the first draw to the last.


A classic Cuban cigar with a medium body and hints of cinnamon and cedar. This is the most popular hand rolled cigar from Cuba and it’s easy to see why. The spicy, earthy flavours really shine through and this Habano is strong without being overwhelming.


Of course, we couldn’t do a cigar blog without mentioning the world-famous Romeo y Julieta brand and the Short Churchill is one of the most popular robustos available. Light in strength but with medium flavour, this beauty has base notes of cedar and earth that is perfectly rounded off with a light spice in the finish.
