The Best Cigars for Your Groomsmen

Whether hand-rolled or man­u­fac­tured, cig­ars are con­tin­u­ing to be a pop­u­lar gift to give to your grooms­men. When your grooms­men are dressed up in their dap­per suits and tux­es, you want to give them a cig­ar that’s unique and helps com­mem­o­rate the expe­ri­ence. Here’s how you can find some of the best cig­ars for gift-giv­ing.

Know How to Rate a Cigar

Cig­ars are cre­at­ed dif­fer­ent­ly and range in fla­vor, size, and shape. It’s impor­tant to know how to rate a cig­ar before mak­ing a pur­chase for your grooms­men.   When con­sid­er­ing a cig­ar, pay atten­tion to the head and foot as well as the filler and wrap­per. The wrap­per is respon­si­ble for much of the cig­a­r’s fla­vor and there are light to dark vari­eties. The fill of a cig­ar is a blend of tobac­co that’s fer­ment­ed and dried. The head is what will be placed in the mouth and will have to be cut, while the foot is the side of the cig­ar that will be lit. Con­sid­er cig­ars that are easy to cut with a guil­lo­tine for any of your grooms­men who are new to smok­ing.

Determine Flavor, Smoking Characteristics and Burn Time

There are sev­er­al fla­vors of cig­ars to con­sid­er, from woodsy fla­vors to fruity fla­vors. Sim­i­lar to cof­fee and liquor, it’s all about what you like. No one fla­vor is bet­ter than anoth­er inher­ent­ly. Some of the most pop­u­lar types of cig­ars to get have dis­tinc­tive fla­vors and don’t have to be expen­sive. For the grooms­man who fan­cies fla­vor with a fruit base, opt for some of the most pop­u­lar fla­vors, includ­ing mel­on-fla­vored cig­ars or one that has a hint of straw­ber­ry. Burn time is also impor­tant to con­sid­er. For a longer burn time, use wood­en match­es. Butane lighters can be used but offer short­er burn times.
