If you haven’t tried a flavored cigar you could be missing out on a magnificent cigar smoking experience. Flavored cigars are not for everyone, but those who do enjoy them often exclusively smoke flavored cigars.
Beginning cigar smokers should not be dissuaded by some alleged cigar ‘experts’ who claim flavored cigars aren’t true cigars. The reality is, a good flavored cigar can be a nice sweet treat, and an inexpensive way to enjoy a relaxing smoke.
There are a lot of brands, sizes, and flavors to choose from, but here are five of the best flavored cigars that are on the market today:
