What cigars do you smoke in the Winter?Author: Marty Klausmeier | Filed under: Premium Cigar Discussions
Another Winter-themed post here as another Summer is being put in the books.
As winter rapidly approaches I find myself thinking about the cigar choices I make
and how those choices change in the cold weather. Many folks opt for shorter
or smaller vitola such as coronas and robustos in order to shorten their smoke time,
but what about changing the cigar brands or lines that you smoke?
I find that in the winter I gravitate towards maduro or even oscuro wrapped cigars,
those that have a thicker wrapper leaf. These cigars seem better suited to the transition
from the relative comfort of my humidor to the wicked cold of a Wisconsin winter. I too
tend toward shorter formats in the winter, unless I’m shoveling in which case I look for
the about the biggest cigar in my collection… we get a lot of snow here.
Suggestions for Winter Cigars that won’t break the bank:
Partagas Black robusto
Puros Indios No. 4 Especial Maduro
Hoyo de Monterrey corona Maduro
Don Tomas Maduro robusto
Licenciados Supreme Maduro #200
So, today’s question is this… If you live in an area that gets a good, cold winter how do
you, if you do at all, change your smoking habits to account for the winter weather? And,
what is your favorite “cold weather” cigar?
