The Montecristo line is all about history and tradition. When you have such a long storied brand, it makes sense to pay homage to the people who helped create what you are. In 2016, Altadis USA decided to craft a premium smoke that would take its name from the family that has cultivated their brilliant and legendary Dominican tobacco. It has become one of their signature lines and helped propel the company even further into the modern era.

 The Mendez family is one of the most respected tobacco growers in the Dominican Republic. They are responsible for most of the Dominican tobaccos used in Altadis USA cigars, including Montecristos. The Montecristo Pilotico uses an array of filler and binder tobaccos including the legendary Pilitocio strand of Cuban seed Dominican tobacco grown at the Mendez farm. The finishing touch is an exquisite Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.

 This complex, medium to full body smoke has wonderful notes of leather, cocoa, pepper, cedar and sweet spice. It has a smooth, nutty aroma and top notch construction, as any Montecristo does. They come in 3 sizes and are packed in wood and leather boxes. The outstanding Montecristo Pilotico is available right now at Serious Cigars.



 With the advent of cigar forums and social media, it is hard for a cigar brand to fly under the radar, especially a really good cigar. However, when Aganorsa Tobacco started to gain some traction, so did all of its smaller brands. Now that it has finally been released, Serious is very excited to be carrying the latest of these fine cigars from Nicaragua.

 Mombacho from Aganorsa may confuse some people, with another Nicaraguan brand also carrying the name. However, in terms of construction, complexity, and taste there is no comparison. The cigar takes its name from the legendary volcano that is located just outside of the Nicaraguan city of Granada. When you first light it up, you can see that the name makes sense. This solid full body smoke is made of 100% aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. The wrapper is from the infamous Jalapa region, known for its oily and spicy tobaccos. It starts of with notes of pepper and spice and transitions to notes of earth, leather and a nice sweet spice towards the end.

 This limited edition, also known as the Thermonuclear is powerful, so make sure you sit down while you smoke it. Also, being that it is limited, you only have a small window to pick yours up so head over to Serious Cigars right now.



One of cigar smokers favorite past times is enjoy a fine cigar with your favorite libation. On of the age old pairings has always been some form of whisky. In the Us. Bourbon remains a favorite beverage to pair with your cigar. Camacho has taken this to a whole new level with their already legendary cigar, the Camacho American Barrel Aged. This incredible cigar not only became a staple of cigar stores around the country, but also spawned a series of new cigars from Camacho and Davidoff.

 The Camacho American Barrel Aged uses one of the most unique blends of tobacco on the market. It is made up of tobaccos from Honduras and the US, including Honduran Corojo and Pennsylvania Broadleaf, giving it intense complexity. The tobaccos have been aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels, giving it a dash of rich, sweet bourbon flavor along with notes of pepper, cocoa, leather and a sweet spice.

 Following the tremendous success of the Barrel Age, Camacho and their parent company have created several more barrel aged cigars. The Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel aged featured tobaccos aged in Rum barrels, while the brand new Davidoff Winston Churchill Late Hour has tobaccos aged in Scotch Barrels. You can enjoy all of these fine cigars right here at Serious Cigars.



Ventura cigars have been kicking up quite the storm in the past few years. With Michael Giannini at the helm they have made a huge splash in the industry with their Archetype line, with the Axis Mundi being named to the top 25 cigars of the year. Their recent work with the Ortez family, the Fathers, Friends and Fire, was a huge success and helped boost their profile even more. However, it is the fan favorite Psyko 7 that really put the company on the map.

 The Psyko 7s are a series of cigars that were named for their insane and intense flavor. They are all hand rolled in the Dominican Republic, using the finest aged tobaccos available. Their incredible complexity comes from the fact that they use filler tobaccos from several different companies, to give you an array of flavors. Each cigar is then held together with a stunning Mexican Sumatra binder.

  They come with two delicious wrapper varieties for different profile preferences. For the more mellow smoker, they have the aged Dominican wrapper with notes of cream, cocoa and a dash of spice. For the more bold aficionado, they have a stunning maduro version cloaked in a Mexican San Andres wrapper.

Each cigar is covered an eye catching, full length band that resembles a prescription bottle, hitting on the “insane” factor. These are some of the hottest cigars on the market right now and you can enjoy them right here at Serious Cigars.



 This year marks the 10th Anniversary of one of the most coveted annual cigar releases in history, the Tatuaje Monster Series. Starting with the Frank back in 2008, Pete Johnson has a released a new cigar every year based on a classic movie monster. Each one has been critically acclaimed and many consider them some of the finest Tatuaje cigars ever created. This year we see the 11th main installment, not including samplers or the Tiff and Chuck which were added on the sly. To connect this last cigar with the first one, Pete decided to name it after the Frankenstein monsters greatest love, the Bride of Frankenstein.

 The Bride is a stunning Churchill sized smoke, coming it with a 7X49 size. Like all Monster releases, the Bride was hand rolled at the legendary My Father factory in the heart of Esteli, Nicaragua. It is crafted with aged Nicaraguan tobacco for the filler and binder. The wrapper is a unique Connecticut Broadleaf Rosado leaf. It is one of the most flavorful and complex additions to the Monster series, transitioning effortlessly from dark, cocoa notes to hints of pepper and spice.

 I have always been partial to the Monster series, particularly the Frank and the JV13 due to my love of Broadleaf wrapper. That makes this the perfect cigar for me and one of my all time favorites of the Series. Like all the Monster releases, the Bride is highly limited so make sure to pick yours up today and check out the full line of Tatuaje cigars right here at Serious Cigars.



The newest cigar from one of the most popular cigar companies has now found its way to our shelves here at Serious Cigars. Crowned Heads has been one of the industry leaders in boutique, craft style cigars for several years now and they have developed a solid fan base. Their blends are always outstanding, from their regular release Jericho Hill to their yearly Las Calaveras cigar with My Father. Their fans are incredibly loyal, and will often travel out of state to pick up special releases. As a tribute to their loyal customers, the team at Crowned Heads has crafted a brand new cigar as a love letter to them.

 Crowned Heads front man Jon Huber has always thought of his customers as a his court, or hi following, like in days of yore. It is in that spirit that they have named their cigar the Court Reserve XVIII, the roman numerals for 18. I do not want to get everyone too excited but this may be the finest Crowned Heads cigar I have ever smoked. This hand rolled gem was crafted by EP Carrillo using only the finest aged Nicaraguan fillers and a solid Ecuadorian binder. The finishing touch, was a dark brown Mexican San Andres wrapper that adds a new level of nuanced flavors to this already complex blend.

 Notes of chocolate and sweet coffee roll of the tongue, only to be followed by a rich spicy center from the aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. It burned perfectly almost the entire way down, needing only one touch up towards the end. There was not nasty, lingering after taste and the flavors start consistent and balanced for the duration of the cigar.

 If you are a Crowned Heads fan, this cigar will be a dream. However, only 150,000 have been rolled and that’s the end of the line so make sure you hurry over up and pick up your boxes of the Crowned Heads Court Reserve XVIII right now at Serious cigars.



If one thing is true about the current state of the cigar industry, it’s that cigars are getting immensely stronger. From the Jacobs Ladder to the Todos Las Dias, manufacturers are striving to make full bodied cigars that are still well balanced and nuanced. One of the fathers of this art is the great Erik Espinosa. For the better part of a decade, Erik has been making a small batch spinoff of his famed 601 line that’s purpose was to give off almost unrelenting strength and intense flavor, yet all the flavors work together in an almost beautiful work of art. Many of you know this cigar as the 601 La Bomba.

 The 601 La Bomba is exactly what its name describes, a bomb. It is a strength bomb, a flavor bomb and a construction bomb… but in a good way. It all starts off with aged Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos followed by a zesty and powerful Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. Each cigar has a name that foreshadows what you are about to experience. From the Atom to the Napalm and the Nuculear, you know what’s in store for you.

 Taking this idea even further, Espinosa is responsible for one of our favorite small batch full bodied cigars of all time, the Warhead series. This year saw the release of the 4th Warhead line, a yearly release with a slightly tweaked blend and new artwork, that really explodes with flavor.

 For all of you out there who enjoy a “knock you on your ass” kind of smoke, the Espinosa La Bomba is the perfect choice for you, and they are all available right now at Serious Cigars.
