Smooth & Mellow
If you’re like us, you like your meals large, your drinks strong, and your cigars even stronger. But let’s be honest, we can’t go full throttle all the time; that’d just be too boring. We’ve got to mix it up and there are just too many good mellow-bodied options. Naturally, our team decided to sort through some of our favorites to come up with the best of the best. And trust us, this lineup won’t disappoint.
We all know that a mellow-bodied cigar isn’t normally my thing, yet, I still find myself coming back to a Macanudo Hyde Park. The ultra-smooth blend is perfect for any occasion. The smooth Dominican blend is a classic and loaded with notes of almonds, cedar, and vanilla. You can see why this is the best-selling cigar in the world…
Rocky Patel’s other Connecticut-wrapped blends get all the notoriety but RP Signature is the true gem. This well-balanced cigar is loaded with Nicaraguan and Honduran fillers then topped off with a smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. Rich plumes of smoke offer notes of cedar, cashews, and vanilla that top off one of the most satisfying cigars you’ve ever had.
While sorting through our list of mellow-bodied blends, I kept coming back to Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real. Even though it’s listed as a mellow to medium-bodied blend, the cigar packs a ton of flavor. The Nicaraguan fillers meld effortlessly with the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and pair perfectly with a light frappuccino.
Looking for something light but with lots of flavor? Well look no further and pick up one of these Alec Bradley Connecticut. This gem is loaded with a ton of cedar notes and just a touch of natural sweetness on an overall rich, creamy background. This blend will pair perfectly with a pilsner and can’t be beat for the price.
Ave Maria has been one of the most exquisite and well-known blends to come out of Tabacalera Fernandez within the last decade. The Ave Maria Immaculata comes draped in a flawless Nicaraguan Connecticut, lending to this blend’s creamy nuances. With an extraordinary amount of depth and flavor, no other Connecticut compares.
