It’s almost game time, folks! Make sure you’ve got chips, dip, and a flat screen as wide as a Mack truck. And of course, cigars. Smoking premium cigars with your buddies is the best way to watch the Big Game. While you’re prepping the man cave, we’ve put together the top Super Bowl cigars you should smoke. We recommend bigger sizes that will burn for a solid half of the game or longer. Our Super Bowl cigars include mild, medium, and full-bodied blends, depending on your tastes. Order a box before kickoff.

#1 - Ashton Classic Churchill (7.5 x 52)

Like a lot of guys, you probably want something creamy and mild that tastes great and lasts for most of game without becoming bitter or too intense. Ashton Classic Churchill is our first suggestion. At 7.5 inches with a 52-ring gauge this cigar actually sports the bigger dimensions of a Double Corona, as opposed to a traditional Churchill. That means you’ve got well over an hour to enjoy a mellow, top-shelf Dominican cigar. A golden-blond Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf embraces premium aged Dominican long-fillers in a 92-rated profile blended by world-renowned cigar-maker Carlito Fuente. Notes of cashew, coffee bean, almond, and cedar bless the palate with luscious texture from beginning to end.

Strength: Mild
Country: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Connecticut Shade

#2 - La Aroma de Cuba Double Corona (7.5 x 54)

La Aroma de Cuba is handcrafted in a generous 7.5-by-54 Double Corona that promises plenty of burn time while your buddies divide up the pizza. A dark and oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper encapsulates a medium-bodied recipe of premium aged binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua. Award-winning father-and-son cigar-makers Pepin and Jaime Garcia re-blended this iconic Cuban-legacy label years ago, and it’s been a top-selling premium brand ever since. Complex notes of cocoa, cedar, molasses, and earth mingle with succulent spices in a 93-rated Nicaraguan classic for an amazing value. 

Strength: Medium
Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf

#3 - Arturo Fuente Hemingway Masterpiece (9 x 52)

Arturo Fuente Hemingway Masterpiece has long been a benchmark for longer cigars. Carlito Fuente blends a marvelous combination of premium Dominican binder and filler tobaccos beneath a glistening Cameroon wrapper leaf. This amazing Perfecto-shaped beauty furnishes a medium-bodied profile of chestnut, cedar, black pepper, cocoa, and baking spices. Only the most skilled rollers at the Fuente factory assemble Hemingway cigars due to their meticulously tapering sizes. The Masterpiece is a cigar that grows in flavor and complexity from the first puff right through the nub.

Strength: Medium
Country: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Cameroon

#4 - Padrón 1964 Anniversary ‘A’ (8.25 x 50)

Prep your palate for an extended epicurean feast with a 97-rated Padrón 1964 Anniversary in a long, mouthwatering classic called the ‘A’ – over 8 inches long with a 50-ring gauge. When you really love a blend, the ‘A’ is a superb size to smoke because it lasts all afternoon. Since the smoke is traveling a longer distance to reach your palate, the first half is mellow and approachable while the cigar slowly builds in intensity throughout the second half. Savor a classic Padrón profile of cocoa, cinnamon, cedar, cayenne, and nuts. And if you prefer a bigger ring size, consider a Padrón 1964 Anniversary No. 4. The No. 4 is a chunky, soft box-pressed 60-ring cigar drawn from the same blend of well-aged Nicaraguan long-fillers tucked under an oily Nicaraguan wrapper leaf.

Strength: Medium-Full
Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Nicaraguan

#5 - Oliva Serie V Churchill Extra (7 x 52)

Fans of premium, full-bodied Nicaraguan cigars consider the 95-rated Oliva Serie V an absolute jewel. An oily Cuban-seed wrapper conceals a hearty of blend of Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos in an excellent collection of shapes, including the extended 7 x 52 Churchill Extra. Not only does this monumental format burn for well over an hour, but its spicy taste is drafted from a meaty combination of premium Ligero tobaccos that possess ample intensity. Tasting notes of cayenne, leather, mesquite, hickory, and black pepper pulse throughout a cigar blended to put your nerves at ease during the Big Game. Eat something first.

Strength: Full
Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuador Habano

#6 - San Cristobal Revelation Leviathan (6.5 x 64)

One of our best Super Bowl recommendations is a big-ring gem called the Leviathan in the San Cristobal Revelation blend. At 6.5 inches with a 64 ring, this chunky and balanced smoke delivers a superlative profile of smoked almond, cedar, cinnamon, and cocoa with hints of black pepper. A caramel-hued Ecuador Sumatra wrapper covers a complex core of Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos assembled by legendary cigar-maker Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia. The Leviathan burns cool and slow from beginning to end in an exquisite 93-rated profile. And if you prefer a fuller-bodied and spicier cigar, you can also consider the original San Cristobal blend in the Coloso, which is finished in a potent Cuban-seed Oscuro wrapper.

Strength: Medium
Country: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuador Sumatra

#7 - Punch President (8.5 x 52)

Punch is an old-school Cuban-legacy brand, considered an everyman cigar today due to its availability and price point. This popular and powerful Honduran smoke comes in a big size called the President. It’s 8.5 inches long with a 52-ring gauge, and it’s blended from either an Ecuador Sumatra wrapper or a Connecticut Broadleaf. Inside each is a blend of Dominican, Honduran, and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Notes of black pepper, cayenne, wood, dark chocolate, and fresh-ground coffee layer the palate before a big finish resonates. The Broadleaf wrapper is a touch sweeter that the Ecuador Sumatra.

Wrapper: Ecuador Sumatra, Connecticut Broadleaf

#8 - Rocky Patel Mulligans Snowman (6 x 80)

The Snowman from Rocky Patel’s beloved Mulligans franchise is designed for folks who want to smoke a cigar as fat as a football.

Hearty notes of coffee bean, Turkish fig, pepper, and leather develop in voluminous clouds of creamy, white smoke. The Snowman isn’t as long as other cigars on this list, but it’s girth easily eclipses the rest and guarantees a slow-burning smoke with a copious draw.
