These are 3 of the most popular cigar brands to enjoy before, during or after your round
There’s almost no better feeling than — after finishing 18 holes with your buddies on your local course— all commemorating your quality time together between the links with a nice cigar.
And for that, we turned to Cigar Aficionado, which used research from a Cigar Insider poll of 87 cigar shop owners and found — for you (and your buddies) — the top three hottest and most desirable cigar brands right now.
If you’re a golfer who enjoys a cigar before, during or after your round, here are a few popular ones to consider:
1. Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series
The number one cigar comes in as no surprise. The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series has been one of the highest regarded cigars since 1994, the year it was launched. Launched as a more upscale and refined version of the Padrón series, this Nicaraguan cigar’s iconic box-pressed shape set a precedent for the market from its conception.

2. Arturo Fuente
Arturo Fuente’s “Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Eye of the Shark” is not a cigar to miss out on. Rated by Cigar Aficionado as the 2017 Cigar of the Year — with a score of 97 points — it is often in high demand and unfortunately for all of us, short supply.

3. Fuente Fuente OpusX
Another Fuente cigar, the OpusX is the pinnacle of Fuente products. An extremely rare cigar created in the cigar boom, this Cuban-seed, Dominican wrapped cigar was almost impossible to come across during its release in the mid-1990s. While they are more prevalent now, they are still consumers’ top pick.
