Cuban Cigar Comparables

Thompson Cigar Makes a Visit To Cuba! - Read More

Without Cuba, we wouldn’t have cigars as they are today. And to celebrate the birthplace of cigars, we’re bringing you the Top 10 Cuban Cigars as selected by Cigar Aficionado. If you plan on visiting the country, you can take this list with you. And since we can’t sell Cuban cigars, (yet) we listed a non-Cuban comparables for each that has similar qualities.
  • Montecristo No. 2 – one of the most popular Cuban cigars to date, and remains at the top of many Top Cigar lists. There’s a lot of history behind this cigar. The No. 2 is the epitome of Cuban cigars and was nominated as Cigar of the Year in 2013 by Cigar Aficionado. Click here for alternative.
  • Bolivar Super Corona Edicion Limitada 2014 – slightly thinner than most Cuban cigars are these days, this one is 5 1/2” x 48. Click here for alternative.
  • Cohiba Esplendido - more body than the Siglo line, and smokes like a dream. It’s worth the hefty price tag if you ever have a chance to get your hands on one. Click here for alternative. 
  • Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Especial – comes in 3-packs and made the #4 Cigar of the Year in 2014. Click here for alternative.
  • Cohiba Behike BHK 52 – this specific size usually gets higher ratings than the bigger ring-gauge sizes in the line. These are hard to come by and received as high as a 97-rating. Click here for alternative.  
  • Upmann Half Corona – the smallest cigar on this list (3 ½” x 44). It’s small in stature but still delivers tons of flavor. This cigar is one of the cheaper Cuban cigars you’ll get your hands on. Click here for alternative.  
  • Montecristo Double Edmundo – This one should be easy to find if you decide to make the trip down to Cuba. It made #14 Cigar of the Year for 2014. Click here for alternative. 
  • Partagas Lusitania – Another popular one in Cuba, and easy to find. They’re usually sold in boxes of 10. Click here for alternative.
  • Vegueros Entretiempo (4 3/8” x 52) and Vegueros Mananita (4” x 46) – are excellent cigars for the price. Click here for alternative.
