The Fourth of July is over and done with for this year but that doesnâ€™t mean that your sense of patriotism should be gone as well. I found this interesting list of patriotic cigars that you can smoke if you are particularly feeling a love for your country. Well, even if you are not, these cigars are worth a try. Special thanks to Gary Manelski for this list.
CAO’s “America” cigar not only has an American patriotic name, it also has a red, white, and blue patriotic American band. But that’s not all, because this cigar actually contains some filler tobacco grown in the United States, and also uses two Connecticut wrapper leaves.
Flor de Oliva Gold
A great cigar at a great price, and one of my favorites, is the Flor de Oliva Gold. These cigars come with red, white, and blue bands, and are made with Connecticut wrappers. Flor de Oliva Gold cigars are made in Nicaragua with filler tobacco from that country, but at least they look like American cigars, and taste better than most (especially for the price).
One of our readers (Michael Hall) gave us a tip on the Five Star brand of cigars, available at JR Cigar. These cigars have a red, white and blue band, with 5 white stars. According to Michael, these cigars just “scream America”. After being deployed, he smoked them while serving in Afghanistan.
So why not try one of these cigars and then let us know what you think of them, alright?
