Best Infused Cigars

If you’ve got an unapologetic sweet tooth for flavored or infused cigars, look no further. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, infused cigars serve a purpose. Scores of aficionados have crossed the flavored gateway to get into premium cigars back when they were smoking cigars for beginners. Even those who move onto traditional non-flavored brands still indulge in the occasional infused blend. “Infused” is basically a fancy word for “flavored,” and flavored cigars are processed with artificial additives that mask the natural taste of tobacco. Purists take issue with flavored brands because traditional, non-flavored premium cigars taste great on their own without the help of artificial ingredients. Nonetheless, here are the best infused cigars to try if you’re on the fence.

1. Acid

The Acid brand occupies a huge chunk of the Drew Estate portfolio. Acid cigars are handmade in the company’s sprawling factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The brand was developed in the late 1990s and gained a large following for the exotic and unusual flavors of its cigars. Acid cigars are created through a propriety infusion process in special aroma rooms at the Drew Estate factory. The tobaccos are exposed to an extensive selection of botanical oils, herbs, spices, and extracts. Acid cigars deliver a range of distinct tasting notes that include cooking herbs, tea leaves, lilacs, cloves, baking spices, and more. Acid Kuba Kuba is the most popular cigar in the collection.

Nub Nuance is the ultimate brand for fans of sweet cigars in short fat shapes. Nub cigars are handmade at the award-winning Oliva factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Nub Nuance includes a trio of coffee-infused blends that are luscious and cloying. Cappuccino (Single Roast) is reminiscent of the taste of cappuccino with a profile of cedar, coffee beans, and vanilla. Macchiato (Double Roast) reveals tasting notes of caramel, chocolate, and coffee with cream. Espresso (Triple Roast) is a touch more intense with notes of dark chocolate and a toasty bittersweet finish intended to taste like an espresso.
