Birthday Cigars to Celebrate JR Cigars’ 50th Birthday
Whether it is your birthday or the birthday of somebody special, a box of handmade premium cigars makes an excellent birthday present. To celebrate JR Cigars’ 50th birthday, we put together a list of some of the best cigars for a birthday gift that will delight the palate on their special day.
Why do cigars make great gifts?
Cigars make an amazingly good gift for a seasoned smoker as well as for somebody who is barely getting started on their journey into the world of cigars. These artisanal products are crafted by hand with meticulous and passionate care, and your regard for that person is reflected in such a luxury gift.
Cigars are also an exceptionally great gift because they can be quite expensive, so the recipient of the cigars will be able to indulge in some extra helpings following their special day. Especially on a birthday, cigars are excellent celebratory items, akin to a bottle of top-shelf champagne. A gifted box is also great for sharing, that is if whoever is receiving the cigars is feeling extra generous!
Top five birthday cigars for JRs’ 50th birthday
Presented here is a list of five of the best cigars to get as a gift. Since this year we are celebrating our 50th birthday here at JR Cigars, we also have a couple of extra special and top-quality offerings from popular brands that they will certainly enjoy.
Crowned Heads Mother Church
Made exclusively for JR Cigars’ 50th birthday by Crowned Heads, Mother Church is named after the legendary Ryman Auditorium, nicknamed “the Mother Church of Country Music”, and fits the theme of Crowned Heads and their homage to country music.
Available in a 7×48 size so they can enjoy this delicious smoke for hours, Mother Church is blended with a vintage Ecuadorian Corojo ’99 wrapper over a hearty Connecticut Broadleaf binder and stuffed with expertly aged Nicaraguan long-fillers. They will enter the palate with a medium-full bodied smoke that sings complex notes of roasted nuts and hickory along with cocoa, spice, and sweet tobacco flavors.
Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour
Coming from one of the most luxurious brands on the market, Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour Robusto cigars are certain to impress whoever is lucky enough to get these gems as a gift. One of the strongest blends in the Davidoff portfolio, they are made with Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers that are packed in a Mexican binder and finished with a top-quality Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf.
With the tobaccos having been aged in whiskey casks, these 5×52 gems pack a medium-full bodied smoke that is loaded with rich notes of dark tobacco, spice, earth, chocolate, and a caramel sweetness imparted by the casks.
Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th Anniversary Limited Edition
Made just for us, and you, by arguably the most famous cigar brand in the world, the Montecristo Cincuenta JR 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Torpedo is undoubtedly an excellent gift for the humidor of that special person making another lap around the sun.
Rolled with Montecristo’s signature top-notch construction in a tapered 6×50 size, these luxury smokes are blended with aged Dominican and Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos bunched in a rich Dominican binder and a premium Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper leaf. Notes of vanilla, coffee, sweet honey, and cedar will dance on the palate in a complex symphony, a welcome addition to any humidor.
Plasencia Alma Fuerte
The Plasencia family has been growing and rolling top-shelf tobaccos for a variety of popular brands for generations, Alma Fuerte, one of their first regular releases, first hit the market in 2016 and has been a favorite in the humidors of serious connoisseurs ever since.
A Nicaraguan puro that uses vintage tobaccos grown on their very own farms, this 6.25×54 ultra-premium gem provides a full-bodied bevy of tangy spice, dark chocolate, leather, and earth that inundate the palate in a maelstrom of flavor, followed by a sweet, creamy finish.
Arturo Fuente Don Carlos
The brand that put top-notch Dominican cigars on the map during the cigar boom of the 90s, Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Belicoso cigars pay homage to company founder Carlos Fuente Sr. Using tobaccos that have been aged for over 10 years, this blend of Dominican long-filler and binder tobaccos and Cameroon binder is a favorite among aficionados all over the world.
The perfect birthday gift, provide that person with a rich medium-full-bodied smoking experience, with notes of cocoa and nuts coating the palate among some spice and a woodsy cedar aroma. A top-rated cigar worthy of its name, a box of these for the humidor is a gift they will not soon forget!
