Barrel Aging Cigars

Spirits and cigars have long been the perfect pair. As a result, one day, some genius thought to themself, 'What if I could enjoy both...at once?' And just like that, the barrel-aged cigar was born.

Our Favorite Lancero Cigars

Thanks to its unorthodox shape, the Lancero offers a unique smoking experience. In terms of construction, the lancero is difficult to master — balancing the tobacco and rolling the cigar is much more challenging than in your traditional smoke. However, it’s this requirement for craftsmanship that makes the lancero so enjoyable. Because this cigar has less filler, the wrapper plays a key role in the overall flavor profile.

So if you consider yourself a cigar aficionado, the lancero is for you. Ready to put this puff to the test? Keep reading to get to know our favorite lancero cigars.

How To Use a Torch Lighter

From matches to butane, there are many ways to spark life’s pleasures. We’re not here to tell you how to smoke your cigar; we’re just here to elevate the experience.

While the torch lighter is a popular and innovative way to light up a cigar, its benefits may not be as well-known. The torch’s concentrated high heat allows users to have more control over the burn, resulting in fewer puffs before a smooth smoke. 

Durable, convenient, and reliable, the torch lighter should be in every cigar connoisseur’s bag. We’ve already given you a list of our favorites, but now we’re here to break down how to use it to get the optimal burn.

If you smoke cigars, a humidor is a no-brainer. Without a humidor, a cigar can last about 30 days at best, that is, if it’s in a cellophane wrapper. No wrapper? You’re looking at just three days.

 

In order to last, cigars need to be kept at a certain temperature, humidity, and moisture level. When these factors aren’t kept in check, your smoke will lose freshness and quickly deteriorate in flavor. There are a variety of ways to protect your cigars — from a fancy cabinet humidor to a simple acrylic jar humidor. However, if you’re looking for the best of the best, the electric cigar humidor is the way to go.

And, of course, provide a few rum and cigar recommendations while we’re at it.

When you walk into Wilde Cigar Lounge in Dallas, Texas, you will see amazing pieces of art adorning the walls. When you get closer to the art, you will discover that they have been crafted out of cigar bands. No seriously. Portraits of Nolan Ryan (oh and this one is signed.) and John Wayne are just a couple examples of the work you can see in the lounge. What is even cooler, the artist actually works there. Her name is Kim Jackson and she has been creating these beautiful, unique pieces since April 2014. I was lucky enough to spend some time with Kim and discuss her artwork and history in the cigar world.
