Expert Tip: Cigar Selection Guide

Not sure what you want, or do you want to try something different? Well, whether you're indecisive or uncertain, CIGAR.com's Cigar Selection Guide is sure to help get you in the right direction with blends ranging from nice and mellow, to perfectly balanced, and bold and strong. 

Let's start off with a nice and mellow cigar with a golden Connecticut wrapper. If you're looking for something made in the Dominican, a safe bet is with none other than Macanudo Café. This distinctively smooth blend will capture your taste buds in no time. Want that same gorgeous Connecticut wrapper but with a cigar from Honduras? Try Rocky Patel Vintage '99 Connecticut. As the source for many 90+ ratings, Rocky Patel is known for delivering perfection.

If you're a fan of maduro wrappers, but still want to take it easy when it comes to profile, Dominican-made Ashton Aged Maduro is just the cigar you're looking for with a dark and oily wrapper that endures extra aging and fermentation to capture its unique flavor. Another premium that will do the job is 5 Vegas Gold Maduro, this beauty hails from Nicaragua with smooth and crisp flavors, and certainly fits the bill for taste and affordability. 

Searching for something just right or perfectly balanced with a Cameroon wrapper? Get your taste buds ready for Hoyo Excalibur Cameroon. Originating from Honduras, this is one cigar that is full of flavor and provides a rich finish. Or you can opt for La Perla Habana Black Pearl Morado, with its Nicaraguan origin and '93' rating!

If a Cameroon wrapper is not what you desire, these Sumatra-wrapped beauties will be the ideal fit to your perfectly balanced stogie. Made in the Dominican is Aging Room Quattro F55 that took home the number 2 spot on the 25 Best Cigars of the Year list in 2013, and a '95' rating. Also, originating from Honduras is the popular Punch Rare Corojo that brims with rich, full flavors and a character that will leave you and your palate satisfied. 

Moving on to our bold and strong blends, a fiesty Habano wrapper is sure to do the trick. And, with Ramón Bueso Genesis Habano, this premium made in Honduras is sure to kick it up a notch with its full body and powerful ligero. Hailing from Nicaragua is the full-bodied powerhouse Diesel Unlimited. The robust, spicy, and fiesty nature of this wrapper is further enhanced by the hearty filler tobaccos that make this cigar a true, bold statement.

Last but certainly not least, we continue with bold and strong. This time, with a hearty maduro wrapper. Let's begin with one of CAO's best-selling blends, CAO Brazilia. This cigar hails from Nicaragua and features a gorgeous Brazilian wrapper leaf that exudes rich flavors with a long and spicy finish. Next in line is Camacho Triple Maduro. This premium is made in Honduras, and comes packed with serious power. Bold, strong, hearty undertones of spice and earth take to the palate without overpowering. This is one blend sure to satisfy.

Although there are a plethora of cigars at your fingertips, there are none quite like these nice and mellow to perfectly balanced, and bold and strong premiums. And, with the CIGAR.com Selection Guide, we're sure you'll find the perfect stogie to your day.
