Smoking a cigar is one life’s little pleasures. There is a class and elegance associated with cigar smoking, and there is a reason for this – cigars are expensive. Compared to the cost of smoking cigarettes, the cost of smoking cigars is prohibitive for many people. Smoking high-end cigars could set you back several hundred, even thousands of dollars.
If you are a discriminating smoker, the following top-notch cigars will satisfy your cravings:
- Gurkha Black Dragon – Available at 8.5 inches long with a 52-inch ring size, Gurkha Black Dragon is the most expensive cigar in the world. The cigars come in a hand-carved bone chest. Priced at $1,150, these cigars are available only in the finest cigar stores.
- Cohiba Behike – This is the most exclusive line of the very prestigious Habanos brand. Measuring 7.5 inches in length and with a 52-inch ring size, this cigar brand debuted in 2006 with only 100 pieces manufactured. Plans are underway to bring the cigars back on the market. The cigars sell at $470.
