Few milestones call for a more significant celebration than retirement. After all, retiring just means you’ll have plenty more time to dedicate to cigars! In that spirit, today, we’ll focus on the best cigars to pick up for a retirement party. Don’t worry –– we cover a variety of cigars, so you’ll be sure to find something perfect for your situation. 

Weller by Cohiba 2022

Let’s start with a heavyweight: Weller by Cohiba 2022 is a collaboration between one of the highest-rated cigar companies, Cohiba, and one of the most accomplished whiskey brands, Weller. As such, it’s no surprise that Weller by Cohiba is a big, bold smoke that pairs ideally with Weller Bourbon (no surprise there). This an excellent option for cigar fans, whiskey connoisseurs, or anyone who appreciates the finer things in life.

Davidoff Winston Churchill

What cigar fan wouldn’t be excited to get a stogie with Winston Churchill on it? Davidoff’s Winston Churchill is a classic, medium-bodied smoke with notes of wood, pepper, and sweet espresso. Or, if you’re looking for something a little darker, go with the Davidoff Winston Churchill Late Hour, which was aged in single malt Scotch casks. 

Partagas Cortado

If you want a cigar that can act as a gift to a retiree while also pleasing a crowd of people who may or may not smoke regularly, look no further than Partagas Cortado. Not only is Cortado a milder, more approachable smoke, but it’s a marvelous example of just how flavorful Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrappers can truly be. 

E.P. Carillo Pledge

Critical acclaim doesn’t always translate to real-life smoking experiences. However, with the E.P. Carillo Pledge, we find that it is just as good as all the critics say. (And they’ve had a lot of positive things to say about it over the years.) This is a beautiful cigar for a special occasion –– period. 

Honorable Mentions:

  • My Father Le Bijou 1922
  • Excalibur
  • Drew Estate Undercrown
  • Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaragua
