National Golf Day!

It's National Golf Day on May 10th and we have the best cigars to smoke while playing golf, plus a few other tips.

Cigar Etiquette on the Golf Course

Can you smoke on the golf course? Most likely yes, but it can never hurt to call up the golf club prior to arriving or ask when you get there, about the cigar-smoking policy that it has in place. More than likely, it will be fine for you to enjoy a fine smoke while you play your game, yet it is no doubt a considerate move to ask the course staff and your fellow players beforehand.

One of the most important rules of etiquette when cigar-smoking on the links: never place a burning cigar on the putting greens. Don't rest it on the golf cart or drop ashes anywhere on the greens either. So, where should you place your scorching stogie? Get a cigar holder expressly designed for this purpose. Check out our cigar holder that is not just for holding a cigar but is also a golf ball marker, divot tool, club head cleaner, golf grip saver, and shotgun can opener!

Good Cigars Improve Everyone's Golf Game.

Because a game of golf can last four hours, we recommend cigars in a larger size so that they burn longer. A good Gordo, Toro or a Churchhill cigar can be the perfect selection.

The Best Cigars to Smoke While Playing Golf:

Perdomo Lot 23 Connecticut Toro

Perdomo Lot 23 Connecticut Toro is the mildest cigar in the Lot 23 family, following the Maduro and Sun Grown varieties as part of the trio that put Perdomo Cigars on the map. Hand made in Tabacalera Perdomo down in Nicaragua, the Lot 23 series is known for being completely comprised of tobaccos grown on a single plot of land designated over two decades ago to be used specifically for this project. What started out as an experiment ended up being one of the best moves Nick Perdomo would ever make. This Connecticut version of the blend consists of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos and a higher-priming Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. All tobacco used for Lot 23 cigars is aged for a minimum of 5 years to ensure a mature, velvety smooth flavor profile. What makes the Connecticut version of Lot 23 different is that because of its Ecuadorian wrapper leaf, it is the only cigar in the series that can not be considered a Nicaraguan puro. Nevertheless, Nick Perdomo knew what he was doing when he came up with this version of Lot 23, keeping an eye out for all those who love mild-medium-bodied cigars that still want loads of flavor.

Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill - 2011 #1 Cigar of the Year

Hailed as cigar Numero Uno for all of 2011, the 96-rated Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill continues to amaze and astound a worldwide array of aficionados to this very day. It's not like company founder Alan Rubin would just abandon his prized possession after having it reach the top. Through the years, he and all the fine folks at Alec Bradley have worked tirelessly to maintain the taste, quality, and artistry for which they are so well known. It's an incredible feat indeed, what with the challenges of growing tobacco in ever-changing conditions, that the Nicaraguan and Honduran longleaf filler and complimentary Trojes-grown Corojo wrapper crucial to the Prensado's success have maintained the exact palate-pleasing character that made the cigar such a hit in the first place.

Not content to rule the handmade premium world on taste alone, an Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill will be the standout stick in your humidor by force of shear aesthetics. The Corojo which hugs the gently box-pressed 7" X 48 vitola has been aged to the color of roasted coffee beans and sparkles with oil. The palate will thrill to discover a deep, earthy flavor punctuated with spice and cedar. Remaining medium-full strength throughout, the smoke will evolve to include the tastes of leather, marzipan, espresso, and dulce de leche. Sure, they've been out for quite a few years, but have you taken the time to really get to know these fine smokes? SHOP NOW


My Father Connecticut Toro Gordo

When a master of medium-to-full-bodied cigars, such as Don Pepin Garcia, sets his sights on a new market, you bet it gets cigar enthusiasts around the globe salivating. My Father Connecticut Toro Gordo is not the spice bomb you may be used to from the famed cigar maker, but it is yet another amazing example of what a cigar can be when put in the hands of someone on top of their game. Mild-to-medium in body, this Nicaraguan beauty uses the finest Nicaraguan Habano and Criollo filler tobaccos bound with a flavorful Nicaraguan Corojo '99 leaf, but the real story is in the wrapper. The blonde Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper provides an amazing smoothness not often paired with a My Father cigar.

My Father Connecticut Toro Gordo may be a change in what one would expect from a cigar from the famed maker and factory, but it is still an amazing flavorful cigar with impeccable construction. The lighter flavors on this one make it perfect for anytime of day. A perfect pairing for that morning coffee before you head out into the world. For a slightly different medium body cigar from the My Father factory, we would recommend a Cabaiguan Maduro. SHOP NOW


New World Cameroon Gordo

The New World Cameroon Gordo is a spicy twist on one of AJ Fernandez' most popular frontmarks. Despite his being one of today's most popular and sought-after blenders, even guest starring for legendary brands like Punch and Romeo y Julieta, it's good to see that AJ still takes care of things at home. This fine smoke starts with a fine-tuned filler recipe of premium longleaf sourced from Fernandez' own Nicaraguan farms, also home to the juicy leaf used for the binder. However, the piece de résistance of this medium-bodied stick is the gorgeous African Cameroon wrapper used to turn the potent collection of aged interior tobaccos into a velvety everyday delight.

It may come as a surprise that this is the first Fernandez stogie to feature a Cameroon wrapper, but it was worth the wait. Affordable yet full of potential for many hours of enjoyment while on the golf course. SHOP NOW
