Summer Slow Burners
When summer hits, the inviting weather calls for the resurgence of full-sized cigars instead of coronas. The lengthy Churchill and large ring gauge Gordo burns slow and provides ample time for complete gratification. Cigar enthusiasts know you can’t rush a fine cigar, so clear your schedules and kick off the season right with these Summer Slow Burners from the brand new 5 Vegas Miami to the time-honored Montecristo Classic Churchill.
It’s no coincidence Brick House has been rated Cigar Aficionado’s Best Bargain 5 years running. The Mighty Mighty Maduro is heavy in hand containing bold Nicaraguan long leaves inside a Nicaraguan binder. The star of the show is the Brazilian wrapper offering up chocolaty sweetness that pairs well with the spicy Nicaraguan leaves. If you’re like me, you’ll be coming back for more.
If you’re looking for a thick, meaty Habano-wrapped cigar look no further. HC Series Criollo is a blend that caught me off guard, nowhere on the packaging did it say it would be this delicious. Notes of leather, earth, and a hint of coffee intermingle for a very enjoyable experience. The construction and burn are top-notch and most impressively it’s perfectly balanced.
Even though 60-rings are the latest craze, nothing rivals the Churchill size when you have time on your hands to kick back. And when it comes to smooth, mellow Churchills, few do it better than Montecristo. mellow to medium in strength, ‘Monte’ offers notes of cedar and cream backed by a crisp finish. In fact, the hardest part about enjoying this blend is trying to put it down to grab another brew.
