It’s hard to believe that the Holiday Season is already back in full swing. Obviously, as a cigar aficionado, I like to give my family, friends, and fellow cigar lovers the best cigars every Holiday season. So what cigars are my favorites to give as gifts this year? Here is my, Michael W. Asimo’s, 2017 Cigar Gift Guide.
The 7 Best Cigars to Give as Holiday Gifts
The 858 Maduro is an affordable, sweet choice with a touch of nutmeg in every puff. Ut It is made by Arturo Fuente and it is a classy choice for any cigar enthusiast and won’t break the bank at less than $5 each. Heck, give two or three to your favorite cigar lovers. You can buy these at any cigar store or online. They are not hard to find at all. They are also available online at Famous-Smoke.com.
The Churchill has a creamy taste with a smooth hint of coffee and cedar in each wonderful draw. It is made by Gispert and it is a classic gift cigar. Gispert makes one of the best cigars in the industry. It’s also amazingly affordable at under $5. Churchills are available at any cigar store or online at JRCigars.com.
The Toro is creamy and sweet. This cigar works best in the morning but is a popular “anytime” choice for many enthusiasts. It is part of Rocky Patel’s “American Market Selection” and makes a great gift with prices at about $4 each and a perfect cigar when you aren’t sure about a person’s specific tastes.

Giving the gift of a fine cigar is one of the best things you can do for someone during the holidays. I’ve started handing out top-notch cigars as gifts and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Not only do cigars make unique, memorable gifts, but cigar-lovers are able to enjoy their gift the minute they open it. And the best (slightly selfish I’ll admit) thing is, some of those recipients have begun giving me cigars as gifts, and I’m certainly not complaining!
