When cigar companies release limited editions for the Chinese zodiac, they typically focus on the animal that represents the current Lunar New Year. E.P. Carrillo decided to take it 11 steps further and created a set that includes the complete collection of animals. From 2023’s Year of the Rabbit to last year’s Tiger, there’s a cigar in this luxurious box set for everyone’s zodiac sign. The set is called the Aura E.P. Carrillo Shengxiao Limited Edition, and the tobaccos are purportedly aged a minimum of five years. You can save each cigar for their appropriate year, or you can smoke them irrespective of the zodiac calendar. Either way, this fancy humidor won’t come cheap. It retails for $1,000 per box, which works out to $83.33 per cigar. Once you see Cigar Aficionado executive editor David Savona open the package, you’ll see why.
