Most people think of flavored cigars as small tobacco trimmings soaked in a cherry or vanilla flavored ‘brine’ and covered in a sugar soaked wrapper leaf. As distasteful as this may sound, it can be true with your lesser-known brands. However, the tides continue to change and the market for flavored cigars has been flourishing over the past few years. And, with brands like CAO’sFlavours, Gurkha’s Grand Reserve, Torano’s Decadencia, Drew Estate’s ACID, blends, you wouldn’t expect anything less.
Using new technologies within the curing process, the bar of quality has been raised to new heights. So even if it’s not your cup of tea, why not try a flavored cigar or give it another try if your first experience wasn’t great. The definition of “flavored” is not what it used to be. You may actually be impressed, and find a nice ‘change of pace smoke’ along the way.
