For Financial Advisors who have clients who enjoy a good cigar, don’t break out a box of Swisher Sweets on the golf course. Consider sharing a 2016 top ranked cigar with your client and let them know you purchased it especially for them. People have a wide array of likes and dislikes so consider ordering a variety.
Cigar Aficionado Top 3 Cigars:
La Flor Dominicana Andalusian Bull
Dimensions: 6 ½” by 64 Ring Gauge
It’s a combination of Corojo-seed Ecuador Habano wrapper on a blend that consists primarily of Dominican Criollo ’98 tobacco, a hybrid and a bit of Pelo d’Oro too. First impressions are bold and savory with strong notes of hickory and leather. But it continues to take on a complex spiciness of saffron and cumin as well as a slight tangy note that brings the strength and spice together quite gracefully—and it only gets better with every puff.
Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro Robusto
Dimensions: 5” by 50 Ring Gauge
The first Sun Grown was a dark cigar to begin with, but this more modern version has surpassed the original in every respect—it’s darker, it’s stronger and it’s more complex. The cigars are also trunk-pressed, giving them an attractive appearance that hints at the bold blend of Nicaraguan tobacco under the broadleaf wrapper—and they harmonize beautifully, imparting earthy, nutty notes and bittersweet chocolate with the sweeter properties of the wrapper.
Partagas Serie E No.2
Dimensions: 5 1/2” by 54 Ring Gauge
For years, fans of the Partagás letter series only had the Serie D No. 4 to enjoy, but Habanos has taken a new interest in the Partagás sub-brand and added a number of new sizes over the last few years. The Serie E No. 2 was released in 2011, but the samples with a box date of August 2016 mark the most impressive Cuban of the year.
