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 cool-burning, creamy Dominican cigar, handmade with premium aged long-fillers and a golden-blond Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf. Notes of toasted nuts, coffee beans, and cedar are easy to appreciate whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned cigar lover.

If you already know how good Ashton Classic tastes and you want something even longer, consider an Ashton Cabinet Selection #1. At 9 inches by a 52 ring gauge, Ashton Cabinet Selection #1 is drafted from a recipe of premium Dominican tobaccos that have been matured for an extra few years. It promises close to two hours of silky, sublime cigar smoking in a beautifully handcrafted Perfecto.

Lastly, as far as Ashton goes, I can’t resist suggesting an Ashton VSG Spellbound if you prefer a more full-bodied blend. A stately box-pressed Double Corona is drafted in pristine 7.5 by 54 dimensions from an iconic recipe of Dominican binder and filler tobaccos beneath a vintage Ecuador Sumatra wrapper leaf. Notes of leather, sweetened espresso, and cedar carry a touch of spice throughout a resounding finish. A Spellbound is the best way to spend a couple hours with or without a game on.

#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 cocoa-hued Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper encapsulates a medium-bodied recipe of premium aged binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua. Award-winning cigar-makers Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia and his son, Jaime Garcia, blend La Aroma de Cuba to deliver exceptional flavors of cedar, brown sugar, almonds, and signature spices. Savor a handmade, 93-rated Nicaraguan gem for an amazing value. 

#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 sweetened cedar, black pepper, cocoa, and nuts. It measures up perfectly with a number of lagers or sips of your favorite whiskey. At 9 inches and a 52 ring gauge, Arturo Fuente Hemingway Masterpiece will easily get you through a good chunk of the game.  

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

Prep your palate for an extended epicurean feast with a Padron 1964 Anniversary ‘A’ at 8.25 inches by a 50 ring gauge. The classic ‘A’ format is alive and kicking, although you may not encounter it as often as traditional shapes like Churchills, Toros, and Robustos. It takes a good amount of time to get through and ‘A,’ but what makes this shape special is the magnificent transition of flavor that occurs in a cigar this long. Padron is well known for delivering notes of cinnamon, cedar, cayenne, and cocoa. Imagine smoking the classic profile of Padron for close to a couple of hours.

Fans of bigger ring gauges should also consider a Padron 1964 Anniversary No. 4. At 6.5 inches with a 60 ring gauge, it gains enough girth to burn for about the same amount of time because bigger ring gauge cigars burn slower. Both cigars are handmade from the same lauded recipe of premium aged Nicaraguan tobaccos and both are available in Natural and Maduro wrappers. Put a prestigious cigar on your football-watching menu with Padron.

#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.

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

Legendary cigar-maker Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia blends a rich and delicious range of profiles in San Cristobal. One of our best Super Bowl recommendations is San Cristobal Revelation Leviathan. With 6.5 inches and a 64 ring, this is another great cigar for big ring gauge fans. It’s also impeccably balanced with a medium-bodied profile of leather, cedar, almonds, and spices. A cocoa-hued Ecuador Sumatra wrapper covers a complex core of Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. It burns cool and slow from beginning to end.

Of, if you prefer a more full-bodied profile from Pepin, the original San Cristobal Coloso will also last toward the two-minute warning with 6.75 by 62 dimensions. A shimmering Cuban-seed Oscuro wrapper leaf from Ecuador delivers hearty tasting notes of espresso beans, dark fruit, earth, and signature Nicaraguan spices.

#7 - Punch President (8.5 x 52)

The popular Cuban-legacy profile of Punch can be enjoyed for an extended amount of time with a Punch President at 8.5 inches with a 52 ring gauge. The shape has been a staple for aficionados of big sizes for decades. The medium-bodied profile is handmade from a complex recipe of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Honduran long-fillers in either a gingerbread-hued Ecuador Sumatra wrapper leaf or a darker Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro. Notes of black pepper, cayenne, wood, and fresh ground coffee layer the palate from beginning to end.

#8 - Argyle A-Bomb (9 x 95)

Not only will this noticeable behemoth get you through this year’s Super Bowl, you could still be puffing away on it when the Big Game hits the airwaves in 2022. At a gargantuan thickness of 95mm at its thickest point and 9 inches longe, Argyle A-Bomb requires a commitment to finish. Argyle’s unadulterated five-hour smoking extravaganza is more than simply a trivial super-sized cigar. The A-Bomb is handmade entirely from premium aged tobaccos that taste amazing. Vintage Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers lie beneath a lustrous Corojo wrapper leaf in a patiently handmade Perfecto. The A-Bomb is complex too. Notes of dried fruit, almonds, leather, and wood emerge with a pleasant aroma.

The only hitch is that you should order one now and fire it up the second it gets to your doorstep if you hope to be nubbing the end by the time the two-minute warning pops up. It’s the one cigar on our list that you actually might not have enough time to smoke. Cheers!
