Much like a fine cognac or a rich coffee, some cigars are best enjoyed in the wake of a fine meal. But, not all cigars are made equal, and when it comes to an after-dinner smoke, the most popular choices are, without a doubt, cigars that have a little extra sweetness.
Here are our top picks for the best dessert cigars you should try!
1. Ashton Aged Maduro Torpedo Cigar
Despite only dating back to 1985, Ashton cigar’s have long since set the standard of what it takes to be a premium cigar. Celebrated worldwide for their quality and excellence, it should be no wonder that the first on our list is an Ashton cigar.
With a delectable mix of sweet and smoky flavours, the Ashton Aged Maduro Torpedo Cigar is the perfect choice for an after-dinner cigar. Handmade in the Dominican Republic, these naturally sweet Maduro cigars offer a rich, earthy flavour with intense cocoa and espresso aromas.
If you’re looking for a medium-bodied and mellow smoke to enjoy after a meal, then this is the cigar for you.
2. Camacho Connecticut Robusto Tubos Cigar
While not as sweet as some Maduro wrapped cigars, the Camacho Connecticut Robusto Tubos Cigar still makes for a magnificent dessert cigar.
This cigar is made from a blend of both Honduran and Dominican tobaccos and has a creaminess that works to balance the Corojo binder’s sweet and spicy flavour. This particular cigar is the perfect after-dinner choice for novice cigar smokers or those used to a milder smoking experience.
3. Cohiba Siglo III Cigar
If you’re looking for a luxurious after-dinner smoke, then look no further than the Cohiba Siglo III Cigar. Unlike the rest of the Siglo series, this standout cigar has a blend of complex flavours to spice up your tastebuds.
If you’re looking for a medium smoke boasting tasting notes of chocolate, vanilla and spice, then this corona grande is the perfect cigar for you.
4. Backwoods Blue Cigars
If you’re looking for aromatic and flavourful smoke, but you’re not looking for a prolonged smoking experience, look no further than these Backwoods Blue Cigars.
Machine-made in the USA, these cigarillos are made with premium tobacco and are loved for their rustic appearance. With rich vanilla flavours, these sweet cigars make for a perfect, mild after-dinner smoke.
These backwoods cigars come in a pack of five and are also available in the following flavours:

With their rich flavours and distinct aromas, any one of these cigars would be the ideal choice for smoking after a fine meal and would pair wonderfully with various wines or spirits.
