Best Cigars in the World
1. Gurkha Cigars Cellar Reserve 15-Year

2. Davidoff Nicaragua Toro 96
Originating from Nicaragua, the Davidoff Toro 96 is an expensive yet prized cigar. So what makes this cigar so good? Comprising of a 10 year old Habana Seed Rosado wrapper, a jalapa binder with a filler blend including Ometepe, Condega and Esteli.
Expensive? Yes. Money well spent? We think so.
