Cigars to Enjoy for UFC 247
This weekend, MMA fans will gather around their TVs to watch reigning light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones — considered by many to be the greatest UFC fighter in history — take on the young up and comer, Dominick Reyes. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a big UFC fan, and I cannot wait for this fight.
With an event, this big, many cigar bars and lounges will be playing it, which makes it perfect for cigar/fight fans. With that in mind, I thought I’d come up with a quick list of some great smokes to enjoy during UFC 247.
Punch Heritage Reserve
The Punch Heritage Reserve is one of our newest and most exclusive cigars. It is hand made by General Cigar using some of the finest tobacco’s available. This includes an exquisite Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a Broadleaf binder, and a blend of aged Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Dominican filler tobaccos. This gives it a complex yet smooth profile starting with a smooth and slightly zesty center, a rich chocolate taste from the binder, and notes of leather and coffee from the wrapper.
With a name like Punch, this is a great cigar to enjoy during the fights. With its balanced profile, smooth aroma, and great price tag, the Punch Heritage Reserve is pound for pound, one of the best available.
Boneshaker Full Body Cast
The Boneshaker is among our most popular exclusive cigars and a favorite among full-bodied smokers everywhere. As the name states, these things are incredibly powerful and packed with flavor. While the original was considered to be among the strongest cigars on the market, The Full Body Cast surpasses it in every way. The cigar is bolder, richer, stronger, and more flavorful. A spicy Ecuadorian wrapper sits atop a broadleaf binder and flavorful filler tobaccos from Nicaragua.
The result is a high octane, powerful cigar worthy of its name. Notes of leather, spice, and a deep richness combine for an outstanding experience. Make sure to eat something first, or this cigar might give you the KO.
Surrogates Skull Breaker
With his immense power and use of elbows, Jon “Bones” Jones is used to breaking skulls with his arms. This is where this cigar fits perfectly. From the mind of Pete Johnson, founder of Tatuaje and L’Atlier, the Surrogates line offers up a variety of different edgy and flavorful cigars. Among this, the Skull Breaker might be my absolute favorite. Crafted in the My Father factory, this cigar uses aged Nicaraguan filler and binder tobacco’s followed by a flawless Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. Notes of deep cocoa, spice, and a little sweetness come together for the ultimate fight-night cigar.
