It’s that time of the month again…time to pick the cigar of the month! With Valentine’s Day over it’s time to move on to a holiday that everyone can celebrate and enjoy, attached or single: St. Patrick’s Day! This holiday had religious origins but today it’s celebrated by all, most proudly by Irish to honor their heritage. This day involves public parades and festivals, wearing green attire or shamrocks, as well as plenty of eating and drinking. For many, especially in Europe, this is a day to celebrate with friends go down to the local pub and have a good time. For the cigar lovers out there, this is a perfect day to light one up. For such an exciting month, we picked two cigars, one to go with green theme of the day and the other for the cultural taste. The first one is an Arturo Fuente 858 Candela. This is a 6 1/4, 47 ring gauge cigar that has a tint of green that will match your attire and possibly even your beer. It starts off with a hint of freshly cut grass taste that gives way to the more dominant graham cracker flavor as you smoke it. The second cigar we chose was CAO Flavours Eileen’s Dream Cigarillos. These are smaller stogies but have a blast of infused Irish Cream and white-chocolate truffles. These pair great with your Bailey’s or dark roasted coffee.
Don’t forget, you can always customize a cigar to go with the theme of any month!
