Smokers young and old often assume mellow bodied cigars mean they’re weak in strength, lack flavor, or both. Well folks, this just happens to be the biggest misconception in the wonderful world of premium handmade cigars. Just because a cigar has a tamer profile, doesn’t make it any less enjoyable. In fact, mellow cigars like Macanudo, Don Diego, Montecristo Classic, and our original Casa Blanca, have more than enough flavor to be enjoyed morning, noon, and night, without it becoming overbearing. Along with being great introductory smokes for newcomers to the hobby, mellow bodied cigars are also an ideal choice for seasoned aficionados looking to pair a smooth and creamy cigar like the Rocky Patel Vintage 1999, with that first cup-o’- morning joe. In addition, many enthusiasts, regardless of their experience, just prefer a complex mellow cigar over all other strength profiles. Smokers that fall into this category will find brands like the legendary Baccarat, the affordable Five Star, and many other flavorful blends, to be perfect for their type of palate. Even if you’ve been a diehard fan of powerful premium smokes from the get-go, why not broaden your horizons and check out some of the top-notch mellow bodied cigars right here on the JR website—we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how well they stack up to your more potent cigars of choice!
