Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me a cigar to – heat? Halloween is here, and while I don’t mind sneaking in the occasional Kit-Kat bar, the real treat will always be enjoying a great smoke, as I crush the dreams of an entire generation by handing out travel-sized bags of carrots to anyone that rings my doorbell.
And depending on your area, October 31st usually brings one of my favorite climates to indulge with a smoke in. The crisp, cool air and brisk breezes not only make for a spooky setting, but the perfect atmosphere to warm up with something bold. And luckily, there’s no shortage of quality stogies to light up on All Hallow’s Eve—so, let’s take a quick look at a few exceptionally robust selections that are sure to make for a perfect Halloween evening:
The newest introduction to the esteemed Montecristo portfolio, this full-production series marks the fifth addition to the brand’s core lineup. The Montecristo Nicaragua Series is a full-bodied Nicaraguan puro, crafted by A.J. Fernández and produced at Tabacalera A.J. Fernández Cigars de Nicaragua S.A., in Estelí, Nicaragua. The release uses prime hand-selected Nicaraguan tobaccos for its wrapper, binder and filler blend components, culminating in one of the most exciting premium cigar releases of the year, and a blend that’s sure to become a favorite of both Montecristo and full-bodied connoisseurs for years to come.
Every holiday has its own seasonal spirit and unique flair, and this flavorful cigar perfectly captures all that we love most about fall. This fantastic smoke from Quesada Cigars has really embodied the overall essence of the autumn harvest, which uncoincidentally, happens to pair far too well with a wide range of lagers, IPA’s and pilsners specially brewed for the Oktoberfest beer season. Turkey-day may be your last chance to secure a spot in your humidor for these limited releases, because they only come around once a year! So, if you have a chance to own them, you probably won’t want to hesitate.
Drew Estate Liga Privada Unico Serie
These desirable and highly rated blends from the premium cigar masters at Drew Estate contain quality tobaccos so rare, that it’s impossible to maintain a full-production lineup for any Liga Privada Unico Serie selection. So, these covered, ultra-premium collections are released intermittently as private blends in select, limited-production boxes. Keep an eye out for any of these prime releases, which are worthy of lighting up on any holiday or special occasion. And with varieties that sport names like Ratzilla, they’re monstrous enough to be the perfect fit for October 31st!
Speaking of monstrous, Tatuaje Monsters cigars are a full-sized version of Pete Johnson’s popular Skinny Monster release. This is another lineup that’s released annually, appropriately around the Halloween season! These ‘killer’ smokes will chill smoker’s bones to the core with their enormously full-flavored profiles and horror-themed names and vitolas. Tatuaje Monsters are scary good, and are only available at JRCigar.com for limited time— so get them before they’re gone. Because if there was ever a premium smoke suited for this holiday, these Monsters are it!
