Fall Season Cigar Buying Guide

Shane K. K's picture

As much as we love being on the golf course, the beach, and the boat all summer, fall is the best time of the year to smoke cigars for many – inside or out. Kicking back on the porch in cooler weather, watching football, and pouring a snifter of cognac beside a roaring fire place are picture-perfect scenes for smoking a cigar. Restock your humidor with the best cigars to smoke this fall. We’ve outlined some excellent choices in our Fall Season Cigar Buying Guide.

#1 - Ashton Aged Maduro

Ashton Aged Maduro is an excellent cigar to smoke in the fall thanks to a mature profile of molasses, black pepper, dark chocolate, and notes of fresh ground coffee. An oily and toothy Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper encapsulates a succulent core of premium aged Dominican binder and filler tobaccos. The 92-rated cigar has been around more than thirty years and is handcrafted in a collection of classic shapes. Enjoy Ashton Aged Maduro equally with a bourbon, port, rum, or a cup of hot cocoa.

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

A luscious profile of cinnamon, cedar, nuts, and baking spices compliments a bourbon or cognac nightcap just as well as a hot cup of tea or coffee with cream in the morning. The blend is handmade in an iconic collection of Figurado formats like the Short Story, Signature, and Work of Art, which scored 94 points and a ‘Top 10’ ranking in Cigar Aficionado in 2019.
