The San Cristobal de la Habana el Morro is the cigar for you my friend! You are a casual, no nonsense type of gentlemen. That’s not to say that you don’t enjoy the finer things in life. You certainly have an eye for quality but you are also incredibly practical and you pride yourself on your practicality. When it comes to your cigar you are a regular smoker who would appreciate the classic and delicate presentation of this consistent Havana cigar. According to David from NicePair.ca, pairs perfectly with Laphroaig 18 year old Scotch. At 6.3 inches and 33g, this affordable cigar is also likely to seem cooler and last longer, which is exactly what you are looking for. It’s no wonder Jim Belushi made this his every day cigar, smoking an average of 6 per day.
If your total equals 11-15 pts:
You are polished, sophisticated and classic which makes the H. Upmann Petit Coronas a great cigar choice for you. They are short and moderately stout at 5 inches and 42g with a light strength, marvelous nutty feeling, and a very nice light smoke. This cigar is meant to be savored and enjoyed by a hard-working gentleman who appreciates luxury items and takes the time to enjoy them. You can kick back like the charismatic John F. Kennedy used to and enjoy this cigar once you are done with gardening and enjoying the beautiful afternoon sun. Peaceful, reliable, and relaxing are words that could both describe you and your cigar.
If your total equals 16-20 pts:
You are the perfect combination of success and playfulness. You don’t take yourself too seriously which is why you deserve to enjoy a Romeo y Julieta Petit Corona whenever your heart desires. Similar to the H Upmann Petit this cigar is 5 inches and 42g yet this one differs in that a peculiar smoke and aging is important to enjoy the actual flavors of the cigar. Minimum aging duration should be 5 years. While you are not naturally a very patient person who would wait 5 years for anything, you understand that patience in some regards – like to age the perfect cigar – is necessary to enjoy it at its fullest potential. After aging, sweetness and notes of cedar balance the full bodied, complex aromas and hints of earth, coffee and cedar. This is one of Charlie Sheen’s very favorite cigars. We’ll let you decide whether you are more like the 1986 Platoon Charlie Sheen or the 2011 “Winning!” Charlie Sheen.

The Montecristo No. 2 is one of the most widely recognized Cuban cigars by smokers and non-smokers alike. Classic cigar, unlike Patrick’s view on individual taste change, this cigar is unique by itself. The reason you like this cigar – aside from its well balanced flavor and consistent burn – is that it evokes a certain “attitude” or status. Since you are a gentleman who likes to consider themselves at the top of their game, you deserve to enjoy the cigar that others like minded successes choose such as mega-stars like Jack Nicholson and sports icons like Michael Jordan. The Monte is 6.1 inches, 52g and is not for beginners. It’s a bit spicy and is only for the experienced smoker, like you!
If your total equals 26-30 pts:
You are the type of gentleman who does not mind being in the public eye. In fact, you like the kind of attention that any type of public service or corporate leadership opportunities bring to your life. You find yourself at lots of events which is why the Hoyo de Monterrey Double Coronas, at a nice-sized 7.6 inches and 47g, is your quintessential post dinner cigar. This cigar has a sense of artistic beauty behind it as it is being produced with care by the hand of a craftsperson which is why many major public figures such as Arnold Swarzenneger have made this their go-to brand. Mixed with vanilla and honey perfumes, the burn is continuous and fairly direct. This type of directness and consistency is right in line with who you are.

There is the regular cigar smoker and the Cohiba Siglo VI smoker. You know who you are. You are a distinguished gentleman, a connoisseur of luxury items, and wouldn’t be caught dead smoking anything but the best. Smoking a short and stout Cohiba Siglo VI, only 4.5 inches yet 52g, brings a sort of status with it because it has the finest blend of tobaccos. Just like the fact that you drive the nicest car, rock the hottest fashion, and vacation in the world’s best spots…when you smoke, you smoke only the best. You’ve worked hard to earn your luxurious life and you deserve to enjoy life to the fullest.
