On occasion you may find yourself with the desire, and time required to enjoy a relaxing smoke with your breakfast, but choosing a cigar could be difficult. The ideal morning smoke should be flavourful, yet not overpowering, and ideally pair nicely with a much needed cup of coffee or tea. Here are 5 suggestions:
Fonseca cigars generally provide a mild-medium smoke with a light tobacco flavour and creamy profile. The Delicias feature a number of classic breakfast flavours including vanilla, cinnamon, sweet cappuccino and cream, along with herbal, tea-like notes. It’s like having French toast, coffee and tea all rolled into one! Shop Fonseca cigars.
MONTECRISTO PETIT EDMUNDO
On the lookout for a powerful little breakfast smoke? Look no further. The Petit Edmundo packs a ton of flavour into a short format, with a profile full of rich cocoa bean, sweet earth and pleasant floral notes that lead to a long, nutty finish. Pair with a Café con leche and traditional Cuban desayuno to transport yourself to a Havana state of mind. Shop Montecristo Cigars.
COHIBA SIGLO II
One of the finest Petit Coronas ever produced, the Siglo II is an absolute classic, striking the perfect balance between flavour, strength and spice. Predominantly earthy, the Siglo II develops a complex character, offering notes of sweet spice, almond paste, nougat, vanilla and a creamy sweetness. Pair with a rich espresso or Cuban coffee. Shop for Cohiba cigars.
ALEC BRADLEY MAGIC TOAST
What would breakfast be without toast? Alec Bradley’s Magic Toast is a strong cigar that’s perfect for lazy weekend mornings. The blend is heavy on Honduran tobaccos, with some Nicaraguan filler and binder, giving Magic Toast a tasty combination of vanilla, oak, floral and spice that nicely complements black coffee or espresso. Alec Bradley Magic Toast Robusto is currently available on Cigars of Habanos at $113 for a Box 20.
Infused cigars are not every one’s cup up tea, but Drew Estate crafted Tabak Especial with the more discerning smoker in mind. Handcrafted in two selections, Tabak Especial uses the finest Nicaraguan tobacco and coffee to create a delicious and unique smoking experience. The “light roast” Tabak Especial Medio is rolled in a sweet-capped Connecticut Shade wrapper, while “dark roast” Tabak Especial Maduro Oscuro is rolled in a dark, toothy Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.
