Ever since a young kid, I’ve always seen cigar smoking as a sign of success. I believe it’s been that way since the 1800s. This often left me asking myself the question I wonder what the most expensive cigars in the world are?
Furthermore, these small bundles of joy have been a common feature at many a gathering. The cigar – I believe – represents elegance and experience. Mind you; I am quite a traditional figure in society. I look at things in a vintage context many would say. Cigars are almost always the most splendid way to celebrate an occasion. In my opinion, the culture, the country, the makers, the quality of leaves, and of course, its origin of the cigar all affect the quality and ultimate value of the smoke. I still think there are some beautiful cigars out there on the market today, but I don’t think it gets anymore fancier than what I’m about to present to you below. If you are looking for ultimate craftsmanship and style, then listen up ‘cos your in for a treat. Let’s take a look at some of the most expensive cigars in the world.
Fuente Don Arturo AnniverXario
When the 100th anniversary of the Arturo Fuente Cigar Company, the owners decided to launch a limited edition of smokes. Within this edition, with the price tag of $7,500 for a box, this magnificent product was designed with supreme aged tobacco. This exquisite box set comes to your doorstep rolled in sun-grown wrappers and seven-year-old tobacco – aged to its highest standards. The unique kick of spice and flavor will most certainly provide you an extremely relaxing experience.
Arturo Fuente Opus X BBMF
Where do I begin? This one can be quite a controversial topic as luxurious as it is. This particular cigar can actually make for an excellent collector’s item. What really does pull the trigger for a supposedly sophisticated product is where BBMF is the acronym that means Big Bad Mother F***er. Yup – this cigar was quite popular during its 1995 release surprisingly as they are found in local cigar stores.
These fabulous Cuban cigars are priced at $50 per stick and are produced by the Goldwin Metropolitan Company. They are well known for the unique Rosado wrappers also. Nicaragua is where the smokes are produced. I believe this is where their hint of spice and cocoa originates from. These cigars are quite large at about 6 inches long with a sixty ring gauge. Just to add to that fone luxury, the band of the cigar fashions a portrait of Louis XIV.
Arturo Fuente Opus X “A”
Priced at a hefty $79 apiece, they are still to this day a popular choice of smoke. However, they are also extremely rare. Produced in the Dominican Republic, they accommodate a slight jalapeno taste. Unsurprisingly they can only be found in the finest cigar stores around the world.
Gurkha Black Dragon
Believe it or not, only the best tobacco leaves are used to produce this exquisite cigar. Made in the depths of Honduras, it’s very well-known for its strong flavorful kick. Get ready everyone ‘cos this cigar comes priced at a whopping $115,000! The ring gauge is 52 and is 8.5 inches in length. You know what you’re getting fro your money though – trust me. These smokes are specially handcrafted in a limited edition camel bone box. This choice of the cigar is made for only the true cigar enthusiasts.
King of Denmark
These babies cost a beautiful $75 a pop. You heard me – 75… a cigar. You may think this sounds ridiculous but the company that sells these only manages to produce thirty a day! However, depending on the customer’s choice, you can have it wrapped in gold foil with the name of the client on it. If you wish of course but hella, I would love that! Heck, if that’s not up to your standards, then try this. The company can also accommodate a silver, gold or diamond crown for only $4,500 more. Now your talking!
You won’t be able to pull up your socks when you find out the price of this beauty. $470 …each. The very first release of Cohiba behike cigars was when the size was 7.5 inches with a 52-inch ring gauge. 2006 was the initial release date but when they came out, the popularity was absurd and so overwhelming, the brand began by producing just 100 pieces to now having developed different brands of the same cigar type but just less expensive.
Gurkha His Majesty’s Reserve
My one downside to this is that you have to wait a bloody long time for these babies to arrive at your doorstep. The brand actually only manages to produce just under 100 boxes a year. On top of that, pre-orders skyrocket when the public realizes the company has released a new ’round’ of them. Without a doubt, these smokes are of some of the finest on the market. Wrapped in aged Conneticut Maduro and binded and filled for 12 years in the Domincan Republic, the filler tobacco is then infused into an entire bottle of Louis XIII Cognac per box, it really is no wonder why these smokes are so expensive.
Gran Habano no. 5 “El Gigante”
I thought it convenient to save the most expensive to last. Which brings me to the Gran Habano no.5 also nicknamed “El Gigante”. I’m not kidding you, the size of the cigar is practically as large as the sum of dough you must spend to receive such a thrilling gift. Weighing over 1,600 pounds and equipped with a 1,920-inch ring gauge, the actual price tag for this whopper comes at $200,000. This smoke was snuggled into a handcrafted wooden case. It is said that 40 people can smoke the cigar ll at the same time.
Concluding on Most Expensive Cigars in The World
Now I can tell you for a fact these are rare beauties and not everybody is going to be paying anywhere near those whopping prices whether it is online or in-store. However, if you do, in fact, have a little extra bit of dough of your hands, why not lose yourself in one? My final question though – Would you do it?
