Cigar smoking charms almost every man on earth and occasionally women too. For many, it is about the enhanced sexiness the cigars provide when members of the opposite sex are present. Sometimes maybe it’s about the after effect that makes smoking cigars so appealing.
Whatever the reason for smoking a cigar, Hollywood has taught us to do it in style. What beats a cigar? An expensive, premium quality cigar! So, here’s a look at five of the most expensive cigars in the world.
Gurkha Black Dragon
Black Dragon is a classy cigar from Gurkha and has leather like texture. It is worth $ 1150 for one cigar. The Black Dragon is made by hand and made with the combination of most pricey and rare tobacco leaves that are selected from all the corners of the world.
After the tobacco blend is rolled into cigars, they are infused and processed with Louis XIII Cognac to give them a grand and rich taste. They are so rare that only 5 camel bone hand carved boxes were made. Each box has 100 cigars.
Cohiba Behike 2006
In celebration of its 40th anniversary, Cohiba released these cigars in 2006. The cigar looks gorgeous and huge. This limited edition cigar costs $440 per cigar or since the cigars come in a humidor of 40 each, $17600. Only 100 such humidors were made and each of them is numbered too!
Double Corona Regius Cigars
In 2013, the company Regius Cigars Limited created a very expensive, limited edition cigar named Double Corona and the single solitary stick was purchased by businessman ‘Callum Jones’ for a whopping $4000. They claim it has a smooth, sweet and rich taste from the start to the end. The makers even had it in mind to give Mr. Jones a tour of their facility in Nicaragua and show him the manufacturing process, a trip of a lifetime for an enthusiast.
Davidoff Oro Blanco
In early 2014, Davidoff announced the details of their premium vintage cigar which would hit the markets after a few months. This was named Oro Blanco and at its release, it became the most expensive cigar in the company’s history. A box of this edition contains only one cigar and is priced $500. The tobacco used in crafting these comes from the Dominican Republic and has been matured for 12 years! ‘For rare moments’, the company advertises.
