Five Great Cigars for Valentine’s Day

Feb 14, 2018 | By David Savona
Five Great Cigars for Valentine’s Day

Let’s get one thing clear—we’re not suggesting you cancel the order of long-stemmed roses and replace them with cigars as a gift on Valentine’s Day. But if your significant other is a fan of cigars, here are several that are perfectly suited for this most romantic of holidays.

Romeo y Julieta Churchill

Sure it didn’t end well for the Shakespearean lovers for whom this cigar brand is named. (Spoiler alert: They both die in the end.) But, the Romeo Churchill is hard to beat. This Cuban Churchill has scored 90 points or higher in its last eight reviews in Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Insider.

Te-Amo Revolution Robusto Ovalado

Te-Amo is Spanish for “I love you,” and our tasting panel simply adored this Mexican cigar, ranking it No. 13 on our Top 25 for 2014. Inside is a bit of Nicaraguan leaf and a whole lot of Mexican tobacco, making this the best Te-Amo we’ve ever smoked.

Illusione Fume d'Amour Lagunas

Our current Cigar of the Week has a romantic theme, as the name Fume d’Amour translates to “smoke of love.” It comes from the creative mind of Dion Giolito, who makes this 89-point cigar in Nicaragua. It’s somewhat unusual due to the absence of ligero leaves, the strongest variety grown. You won’t miss them.

Fuente Fuente OpusX Love Affair

This short perfecto measures only 4 5/8-inches long by 52 ring gauge and was created in 2008 by Carlos Fuente Jr. to celebrate his parents’ 55th wedding anniversary. Celebrating 55 years of marriage is a rare feat, and these cigars are a rare find. We rated them three times, and in every review the cigars have scored quite well.

La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Belicoso

This romantically named brand (mi amor means “my love”) has garnered superb ratings again and again. We’ve tasted Mi Amors a dozen times, and the brand has never failed to score in the 90s. The cigar, made by the Garcia family for the Levins of Ashton Distributors, took its highest score of 95 points when it was named Cigar Aficionado’s No. 2 cigar of 2011.
