Top 5 Cigars for the Summer

The Summer Solstice begins June 20th into June 21st! We’re a little under a month before summer begins and we couldn’t be happier here at JR Cigars.

With a mild winter that just passed us, we’re looking forward to enjoying longer days, trips to the beach, grilling our favorite foods, and relaxing poolside for hours on end.

One thing that pairs perfectly with all of those things is a cigar in your hand. Personally, I find myself smoking more cigars during the summer months due to the beautiful weather we experience.

So, we compiled a list of cigars for you to enjoy throughout your summer. From My Father Cigars to Drew Estate Cigars, here are the Top 5 Cigars for Summer.

Don’t forget to get the limited-time sampler in the link below!
