With the population in so many regions across the country under orders to stay home and quarantine, we’re all committed to limiting the impact of COVID-19. If you’ve been working from home for the past several weeks or, heaven forbid, your work has been put on hold for a while, give your brain a break and smoke a cigar.

Americans are known for their resilience and their determination – our country was founded on it. But, that also makes it tough for us to sit still for long and, especially, to stay home for weeks on end without going stir crazy. Because premium cigars are natural catalysts for reflection and relaxation, we encourage our fellow cigar lovers to catch up with friends and loved ones, even if it’s in a virtual sense, and share a cigar from the backyard or the confines of your man cave. If you need some inspiration, here is a quick list of the best cigars to smoke at home right now.

#1 - Ashton Symmetry

It’s hard to believe Ashton Symmetry has already been around for over five years. It’s still the newest cigar in the Ashton portfolio, but that’s a testament to the brand’s staying power – Ashton cigars are not fly-by-night trends that fade out. Symmetry is at the top of our list because it’s a blend that unites the best facets of premium cigar-making today. Well-aged tobaccos drawn from exclusive plots in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua are married beneath a stunning Cuban-seed wrapper from Ecuador. The blend is orchestrated by master cigar-maker Carlito Fuente. Symmetry is rich and pensive for when you’ve got some time on your hands to savor a fine handmade.
