Top Brand Cigars
When it comes to selecting a gift of cigars, the reputation of top brand names is a much more important factor than when choosing cigars for yourself. We all know that the most expensive cigars may not always be the best, but an expensive cigar will usually make for a better gift than a moderately priced cigar that actually smokes and tastes better to the giver of the gift. Therefore, unless you know precisely your gift recipient's favorite cigar brand, line, wrapper, size, etc., we are recommending several top cigars which have earned a great reputation with cigar connoisseurs over a number of years.
The great thing about selecting any of the following cigars is that they are all great, and you can limit how much you want to spend by purchasing single cigars instead of an entire box. Choose any size, wrapper, etc. or mix and match when buying as single cigars. Whatever you pick, you can't go wrong.
Padron Anniversary Series
The Padron Serie 1926 and Padron 1964 Anniversary cigars are Nicaraguan puros that come in a number of sizes and are available with natural or maduro wrappers. The tobacco in the Serie 1926 is aged a year longer and is a bit fuller than the 1964 Anniversary, but it is also more expensive.
Fuente Opus X
Arturo Fuente's Opus X cigars are Dominican puros that also come in a number of different sizes and varieties. These cigars can be hard to find and are very expensive, so consider a more affordable size such as the Perfexion No. 4. After all, any Opus X is still an Opus X.
Gurkha Beauty is a top ranked cigar on this website. These cigars explode with flavor, but they are much less robust than many other super premium cigars. Single cigars are sometimes available in glass tubes, which would make for a nice gift.
