Flavored cigars are popular with folks who prefer cigars with sweet taste and aroma. Cigars can be flavored with dozens of ingredients like chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and cherry. Plenty of novices smoke flavored cigars before they graduate to premium non-flavored brands. Makers of certain flavored brands, like Acid, prefer to call their cigars “infused” versus flavored. Regardless of how they’re classified, flavored cigars deliver specific tasting notes as a result of the syrups, oils, and extracts sprayed on, or absorbed by, the tobacco. Here are the best flavored cigars for beginners.

Nub Nuance

Coffee-flavored cigars are among the most popular. Several brands produce them, including Nub which is best known for the short fat shapes its cigars are rolled in. Nub Nuance is the brand’s coffee-flavored line. There are three different coffee-flavored blends to choose: Cappuccino (Single Roast), Macchiato (Double Roast), and Espresso (Triple Roast). Each blend is handcrafted in the bestselling Nub sizes. Sweet and milky notes of coffee, mocha, caramel, vanilla, and cocoa characterize Nub Nuance cigars. Nub is handmade at the Oliva factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

Acid

Acid cigars are different than traditional flavored brands because of their exotic tasting notes. Acid cigars are handcrafted at the Drew Estate factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The company defines Acid as an “infused” brand because the tobaccos are cured in special “aroma rooms” where botanical oils and extracts are used to achieve the unconventional flavors Acid cigars are known for. You’ll find tasting notes of herbs, lilac, tea leaves, cloves, raisins, cocoa, and pepper throughout the Acid portfolio. Acid Kuba Kuba (5 x 54) and Acid Blondie (4 x 38) are the top-selling sizes.
