5 Perfect Cigars For Spring 2021 (Plus 1 Bonus Blend)

Spring is just about in full swing and that means it’s time to light up something special to celebrate the melted snow and weather. In this video, I’ll take you through 5 cigars that are perfect for this time of year, whether you’re grilling, smoking meats, cruising on your boat, or selling the boat that you don’t cruise on because it’s too expensive.

Tabac Trading Co. Milk & Honey

Wrapper: USA Connecticut
Binder: Nicaragua
Price: $10.50

The Milk & Honey is Tabac Trading Company’s Connecticut flavor bomb! This blend features a savory profile with notes of cedar, almonds, vanilla, and honey. I’m impressed by how completely the flavor of this cigar fills out the palate with creamy mild flavor. That makes it the perfect cigar for those sunny Spring days!

2. American Viking Cigars Liga Zebra

Fillers: Dominican & Honduran
Strength: Mild – Medium
Size: 5×50

The Liga Zebra is a barber pole with a multi country blend. Using tobaccos from Ecuador, The Dominican Republic, and Honduras this blend puts out some mild – medium flavor with notes of cedar, almonds, grass, and hay. To me, this is the perfect blend for pairing with a wheat beer on a warm day!

3. Alec Bradley Project 40

Wrapper: Nicaraguan
Binder: Brazilian Habano
Filler: Nicaragua
Strength: Medium
Size: 5×50
Price: $5.25

Alec Bradley’s Project 40 captures the essence of the Spring Season – happiness. The blend is named after a study done on happiness, but the flavor profile and affordable price has been known to produce some joy as well. This economy cigar comes with a medium bodied profile with notes of citrus, cinnamon, alonds, and a nice sweetness from the wrapper.

4. Diesel Whiskey Row

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Binder: Mexican San Andres (bourbon barrel-aged)
Filler: Nicaragua (Condega, Jalapa, Omotepe)
Strength: Medium
Size: 5.5×52
Price:Medium – Full

Diesel took this blend in a different direction with a Rabbit Hole Bourbon Barrel Aged binder leaf. The barrel aging gives this blend’s binder an extra level of refinement in flavor. Pick a sunny spring day to light this cigar up and you’ll taste notes of woods, earth, sweetness. They’re not unusual flavor notes, but what you’ll notice in this blend is a refinement of flavor and smoothness that sets it apart.

5. Romeo Y Julieta 1865 Nicaragua Connecticut

Romeo Y Julieta1865 Nicaragua Connecticut
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Connecticut
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Strength: Medium
Size: 5×50, Bully
Price: $9.27

This isn’t your everyday Connecticut blend. The Romeo Y Julieta 1865 Nicaragua Connecticut is a medium bodied shade blend with a rare Nicaraguan Connecticut Wrapper leaf. The heartier flavor profile on this cigar comes with notes of Cedar, earth, vanilla, and citrus. This cigar will be your best friend when you’ve got the BBQ out, and you’re grilling up a hearty meal!

6. Camacho Nicaragua

Wrapper: Ecuadorian
Binder: Honduran
Filler: Dominican, Honduran, Nicaraguan
Strength: Medium
Size: 5×50
Price: $7.74

The Camacho Nicaraguan, like many cigars that bare the countries name, isn’t a Nicaraguan Puro! It’s a four country blend that offers an out of the ordinary experience. This medium bodied cigar comes with some flavor notes that I don’t typically find in the same cigar – leather, orange peel, cedar, and nuts. This is a cigar that will pair about as well with beer as it will with a nice stiff whiskey or bourbon while you’re sitting poolside.

  1. Of these, I’ve only had the Liga Zebra, which I loved. But with my unrefined palate, the Liga Zebra gave me peanut butter with hints of honey and faint cocoa. My recommendation for another spring stick would be Sinistro’s Last Cowboy – not as creamy, but very nice light herbal and nutty palate.
