Best Tubo Cigars

Cigar tubes provide practical and aesthetic advantages. Protection, freshness, and looks are three reasons cigar tubes are appealing. They’re ideal if you’re handing your favorite aficionado a single cigar as a gift. You can’t beat the classy presentation a glass, aluminum, or cedar tube offers, and you don’t have to worry about damaging the cigar when you’re handing it out or wrapping it in a package with other items. A cigar tube won’t keep a cigar fresh indefinitely, like a humidor, but it does offer an extra barrier from the elements, beyond the cellophane wrapper, that will preserve a cigar’s humidity a little longer. You can even find Ashton It’s a Boy / It’s Girl cigars in tubes, which are perfect for passing out to announce the birth of a baby. Celebrate the next special occasion on your calendar, whether it’s the holidays, a birthday, or an anniversary with your favorite cigar connoisseur by gifting an impressive cigar in a tube from our list below.

1. Ashton VSG Eclipse (Tubo)

Ashton VSG needs no introduction. For nearly a quarter of a century, Ashton VSG has been a coveted premium in fine cigar shops around the world. An oily Ecuador Sumatra wrapper embraces a bountiful blend of well-aged Dominican long-fillers in a round 6-by-52 Toro called the Eclipse, which is packaged in a gorgeous black-and-gold tube. Tasting notes of espresso bean, leather, and cedar mingle with luscious spices before a bold finish resonates.

Notes of cedar, cashew, and coffee bean layer the palate with soft spices in a bestselling profile blended by legendary cigar-maker Carlito Fuente.

3. Padrón 1926 Series No. 90

The Padrón 1926 Series No. 90 was blended to commemorate the 90th birthday of brand founder José Orlando Padrón. Vintage Nicaraguan long-fillers rest inside a toothy Nicaraguan wrapper leaf, all of which are aged a minimum of five years. No. 90 cigars are also round, a departure from the brand’s famous box-pressed shapes. The Natural version is sheathed in a maroon-and-gold tube, while the Maduro is dressed in a gorgeous white-and-gold tube. Both are guaranteed to impress if you’re in search of a single cigar to hand out as a gift. Also consider the iconic Padrón 1964 Anniversary in a 6-by-50 box-pressed Presidente in a beautiful square tube that mirrors the cigar’s shape.

The chunky 5-by-54 Double Robusto is available in a dark maroon tube, and is considered an affordable, complex smoke. An Ecuador Habano wrapper conceals a meaty core of Nicaraguan long-fillers. Oliva Serie V imparts hearty notes of earth, leather, and cayenne pepper before a zesty finish.

8. Nub Tubes

The short, fat shape of Nub cigars has made them immensely popular, and all four core wrapper varietals – Cameroon, Connecticut, Habano, and Maduro – are available in a chunky 4-by-60 format in a tube that’s color-coated to match the cigar bands for each blend. Nub cigars are handcrafted at the legendary Oliva factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, in a collection that ranges from mild and nutty to full-flavored and spicy. Squatty Nub cigars burn for a deceptively long time due to their exaggerated girth.
