Easter Sunday is a religious and rejuvenating occasion. Spring is here. It’s time to tie up the backyard hammock and prepare to smoke outside again. For many, Easter is a time spent with family. If you observe Lent, you’re free to indulge in what you gave up. If you gave up cigars (why on earth would you do that?), it’s time to fire up a good one. Here are five positively tasteful cigars to smoke as you emerge from hibernation.

#1 - Ashton Aged Maduro

If your Easter Sunday includes feasting on Easter candy or chocolate, the naturally sweet but not too strong taste of Ashton Aged Maduro is an ideal blend to enjoy. An oily and well-aged Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper covers a premium amalgam of Dominican binder and filler tobaccos. Notes of dark chocolate, black pepper, maple, and nuts precede a creamy finish with a touch of spice in several classic shapes. Ashton Aged Maduro is an excellent cigar to pair with a sip of rum, bourbon, port, or a cup of coffee.

Strength: Mild-Medium
Country: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf

#2 - Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente

Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente is available in three well-aged wrapper varietals: Connecticut Shade, Connecticut Broadleaf, and Sun Grown. We’re recommending the Connecticut Shade blend as an ideal Easter cigar due to its creamy easygoing profile. Light and toasted notes of cedar, cashews, almonds, coffee beans, and spices mingle in a luscious finish in a collection of slightly thicker shapes. Chateau Series burns cool and easy and is a superb choice to smoke after brunch or in the afternoon.

Strength: Medium
Country: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Varies

#3 - San Cristobal Elegancia

Award-winning cigar-maker Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia drafts a mild to medium-bodied blend from select Nicaraguan long-fillers and a silky Ecuador Connecticut wrapper leaf in a series of popular formats. Tasting notes like white pepper, nuts, cedar, and leather layer the palate with creamy texture and a touch of zest. You can smoke San Cristobal Elegancia during a walk in the park or while relaxing in the backyard hammock. Its complex taste is rich without overwhelming.

Strength: Mild-Medium
Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuador Connecticut

#4 - La Aroma de Cuba Edicion Especial

La Aroma de Cuba Edicion Especial was recently re-blended by celebrated father-and-son cigar-makers Pepin and Jaime Garcia. The new rendition is a touch stronger and deserves consideration if you want a hearty after-dinner cigar. An oily Cuban-seed wrapper hosts a woody and nutty interior of premium aged Nicaraguan long-fillers. A rich profile of toasted almonds, leather, cedar, and spices impresses from beginning to end.

Strength: Medium-Full
Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuador Habano

#5 - Padrón 1926 Series #90

The prestigious reputation of Padrón is packaged in a special tubos edition with Padron 1926 Series #90. A vintage recipe of extra-aged Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos rests beneath a toothy Nicaraguan wrapper leaf. The blend boasts tobaccos aged for eight-year minimums and unlike most Padróns, which are box-pressed, the #90 is handmade in a round shape. If you happen to find one in your Easter basket, the Easter Bunny has been good to you.

Strength: Full
Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Nicaraguan
