Maybe you’re dressing up as George Burns or you’re sporting a cliché pair of Groucho glasses. For both costumes, a cigar is mandatory. While there are a number of great cigar-smoking characters to go as this Halloween, what about the cigars? If you’re going to play the part, you’ll want to smoke something good. And, if you’re a novice who only smokes once a year when you’re getting into your Halloween character, you’ll want to stick with something milder, especially if you plan to tote your cigar around and puff on it for most of the night. To all the “Terminators” and “Tony Montanas” out there, here’s a list of the best cigars to smoke this Halloween.

#1 - Tatuaje Monster Series

The Tatuaje Monster Series takes the cake as the top Halloween cigar. Brand founder Pete Johnson releases a highly anticipated limited edition every year for Halloween. For 2023, The Face Redux 3 is a new take on the original Face, which was the third official Tatuaje Monster cigar back in 2010. The Face is named for the Leatherface character in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The Face Redux 3 cigar is a 6.375-by-56 Toro Gordo blended from an oily San Andrés wrapper leaf and premium Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos and is produced at the Garcia family’s renowned factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. This sweet, smoky, and peppery cigar comes in limited-edition boxes of 13 that sell out fast. Only 5,000 boxes were produced for 2023, so buy the original “boo-tique” cigar and break out a small-batch gem from Tatuaje this Halloween before they vanish.

Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: San Andrés

#2 - Ashton Classic

While there’s nothing spooky or macabre about Ashton Classic, it’s an ideal Halloween cigar to smoke if you tend to enjoy a cigar on a rare occasion. Because of its mild, delicious flavor, Ashton Classic is easygoing, elegant, and a pleasure to smoke without overpowering your palate or your tolerance for nicotine. Creamy and silky tasting notes of almonds, cashews, and cedar accompany a delightful aroma. The blend is handmade in a wide variety of shapes that burn for shorter or longer periods of time. Get into character with the top-rated, top-shelf taste of Ashton Classic.

Strength: Mild
Country: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Connecticut Shade

#3 - Punch Diablo

Punch Diablo is depicted as “The Dark Side of Punch.” Boutique cigar-making sensation AJ Fernandez blends a zesty full-throttled profile for Punch Diablo with a dark and oily Ecuador Sumatra wrapper over a complex recipe of Connecticut Broadleaf binders with Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers. A bold amalgam of spicy, sweet, leathery, and piquant flavors is bound beneath a wicked black and red band, perfect for a Halloween prop. But beware, Punch Diablo is best served after dinner due to its intensity.  

Strength: Full
Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuador Sumatra

#4 - Nub Corojo

Nub Corojo makes our list of Halloween smokes with its pumpkin-orange cigar band and short, digestible shape.  Notes of cocoa, leather, and pepper emerge courtesy of an oily Corojo wrapper and a well-aged core of Nicaraguan long-fillers before a nutty and zesty finish lingers. Nub cigars are easy to smoke outside if the weather’s a little cool because their plump and abbreviated size doesn’t require hours to consume. Plus, Nub is handcrafted from the finest premium tobaccos at the award-winning Oliva factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. Practice your best Max Cady laugh while big billows of smoke erupt from your face like a chimney stack thanks to the cigar’s girth.

Strength: Medium
Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Corojo
