A subscription to the Premium Cigar of the Month Club (otherwise known as the The Cigar of the Month Society) is a gift suitable for clients, associates or employees as well as a personal gift for those people that are particularly difficult to shop for. Gift memberships range from 2-12 months and can be charged either monthly or in a one installment.

Members of the cigar club receive a selection of five different brands of aged, highly-rated, hand-rolled cigars each month.

One member put it best when he said "I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how pleased I’ve been with your service. The quality and assortment of cigars I’ve received has been outstanding, but more importantly, I’ve discovered many new cigars that I now enjoy on a regular basis, that I probably would never have even tried. Keep up the great job."

This month's featured selections include 3 from Nicaragua and 2 from Honduras.

Gurkha'S Castle Hall Robusto is a Nicaraguan cigar with origins in old Cuba. It is medium-bodied with bold, heady flavors that run from sweet clove-like notes to leathery earthiness, and it tends to grow in strength as it burns. Its thick, patiently aged Grade 'A' Honduran wrapper burns slow and cool. Look for soothing, creamy notes on the palate with flourishes of roasted nuts lingering after each puff. This stogie pairs well with a pungent peaty single malt such as Lagavulin or Laphroaig.

Next up from Nicaragua is the handmade Est. 1844 Anejado No. 50-xtra cigar. The wrapper, a dark, toothy San Andres Maduro, cloaks a healthy dose of robust Nicaraguan long-fillers. Expect a complex flavor profile that's layered with rich notes of espresso, earth, pepper, and cedar. The finish is natural and sweet. This cigar has a "dead even burn," as one panelist put it. Well constructed with a firm, but not tight draw. Try this with Courvoisier XO Cognac for a rewarding flavor combination.

The next cigar offered to Club members this month is the Honduran Gran Habano Azteca Fuerte Robusto. It has two dark, toothy San Andres Maduro wrappers which are both extra fermented naturally, without sweating or other artificial means. Beneath these two leaves is a combination of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers and rich tobaccos from Panama. The result is a bold medium to full-bodied array of rich, tobacco flavors. Expect an easy draw. Notes of coffee, earth, pepper, and a sweet, toasty finish characterize this cigar. It burns well, with a nice draw and firm ash. A great match to an Irish Stout or Imperial Porter!

Also from Honduras we have the Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur #3. Originally produced by leaf grower and founder Jose Gener in Cuba in the 1960's, it is now hand rolled in Honduras. The Excalibur is made using the top 10% of the factory's tobacco from Honduras and Nicaragua. The beautiful Connecticut Shade wrapper gives the cigar a robust but unusually smooth taste. The blend is Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Cuban-seed Dominican fillers, while the binder is Connecticut. This full-flavored brand has been dubbed the "espresso of cigars" because of its famously rich, strong, and creamy smoke. Expect a perfect draw, a straight burn that stays firm throughout, and a lovely aroma. The Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur is considered to be one of the finest cigars on the market. This cigar goes well with a cup of java or a flavorful brewski.

Lastly we have another cigar from Nicaragua. The Rocky Patel Royal Vintage Churchill is an example of one of the most notable and memorable cigar blends ever created. This purple-banded beauty is handcrafted with dark, oily, very well-aged Ecuadorian Sumatra wrappers. This thick, oily wrapper leaf--with its lovely reddish hue--cloaks a vintage mixture of long-leaf tobaccos from both Nicaragua and Honduras. Expect a medium-to-full body smoke filled with a rich array of elegant flavors including notes of espresso, earth and spices. A V.S.O.P. cognac goes well with this cigar.
