“Stop and smell the roses,” they say. While there’s nothing wrong with that attitude, we’d much rather stop and have a cigar. Thankfully, you can get the best of both worlds by trying out cigars with floral notes. Though not the most common tasting note, plenty of high-quality smokes offer mellow, airy, fresh, and, yes, even floral smoking experiences. Here are some of our top picks for cigars in this category: 

CAO Gold Vintage

Let’s get started with a classic. CAO Gold Vintage is a special edition of the CAO Gold line that features tobaccos harvested from the 2004 crop. This creamy, smooth smoke also has hints of floral notes on the flavor profile. 

La Gloria Cubana Serie R Esteli Maduro

La Gloria Cubana Serie R Esteli Maduro may not be the most obvious candidate for a cigar with floral flavor notes. However, intermixed with the deeper notes of dark fruit, cocoa, and nuts, discerning smokers can pick up delightful floral hints. Grab a box if you’re looking for something different from your next Maduro. 

Davidoff Nicaragua

Speaking of complex flavor profiles, the Davidoff Nicaragua is a full-bodied smoke typical of the brand. Beneath solid notes of leather and coffee, smokers will also detect floral notes that bring balance to the blend. 

Rocky Patel The Edge Candela

Do you prefer your cigars on the lighter side? Well, how about a double claro –– otherwise known as a candela? These green-colored cigars are a special breed in the cigar industry, and their flavor profiles are typically lighter, a little grassy, a little floral, and often reminiscent of green tea. The Edge Candela by Rocky Patel is a fantastic choice if you’re new to candelas. 

Camacho Distillery Edition Ecuador

There’s a TON going on with the Camacho Distillery Edition Ecuador. So perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that this smoke also has flavor undertones. Even if you don’t expect floral notes from a Camacho cigar, we think you’ll dig what this stick offers. 

We could go on, but we’ll call it here for today. Did we miss your favorite cigar with floral notes? Then sign up for Cigar World and let us know in the comments!

    All of these cigars have unique characteristics, but none disappointed me.
