When you first see the Leaf by Oscar cigar, you’ll say “What the…?” and then look around to see if someone’s messing with you. They’re not.
Look, we know the cigar isn’t going to win any beauty contests…until you take off that protective outer leaf, unwrapping it like a gift you didn’t think you wanted.
Trust us–you’ll want this.
Under that Leaf by Oscar leaf, you’ll find a perfectly-rolled cigar with a lusciously oily wrapper. Look closely and you’ll be hard-pressed to find many veins. Take a glance at the foot—tightly (but not too tightly as you’ll see when you light up) and perfectly constructed Honduran long filler ready to surprise you again with rich flavor. Wahoo!
All Leaf by Oscar cigars are handmade in Honduras, banded with organic bands, and wrapped in a tobacco leaf.
Oliva Serie V - Melanio
The Oliva Serie V Melanio is hand rolled using expertly fermented ligero fillers, leaves known for their robust and rich flavor. Five years in the making, this special cigar is sure to exceed a premium cigar smoker's highest expectations.
The Serie V is full flavored yet smooth. The long filler tobaccos are a blend of Oliva Nicaraguan Habano that emphasizes tobacco from the Jalapa region, an area known for a more nuanced leaf than the Esteli or Condega regions. This carefully aged Jalapa blend produces a particularly flavored smoke.
Looking for a full bodied cigar with depth and flavor, look no further. The Kristoff Ligero has twice the amount of Ligero leaf in the filler than the original Kristoff. It embodies incredible notes of toasted nut, caramel, undertones of cedar, spice and a sweet finish. Made with 100% Cuban Seed tobacco, this cigar leaves a clean, fresh finish on your palate.Blend

Inspired by hot rods and pin-up girls, CAO Flathead is a box pressed collection that hits on all cylinders. Hand-shaped to deliver a striking flat top, the cigar features a brawny Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and a blend that’s heavy on Nicaraguan leaf. Its frontmarks are named for engine parts, but the tribute to muscle cars doesn’t end there. Flathead gives a nod to the muscle car engine, with a lid that’s easily removed and used as wall art. There’s also a collectible, pin-up girl flysheet that’s enclosed in the box.

Cigar Size Information
Cigar Size Information
Is the size of a cigar important to the taste and aroma?
Yes, the same cigar blends in different sizes will taste different if there’s a big difference in ring size and length. This is because a big ring gauge, say 50 or 52, produces an immense volume of smoke compared to a 28, 36 or even a 42 ring. Larger ring gauges allow for more filler tobacco which gives a cigar more complexity and allows the cigar to burn slower and cooler. Naturally, this strongly influences taste and aroma. To fairly compare two different blends, you should taste test cigars of the same size.
To a lesser extent, length also influences taste. Besides, if you start with a 7 inch cigar when you’re used to one 5 1/2 inches long, it’ll become 5 1/2 inches long soon anyway – although, believe it or not, the 7 inch cigar at 5 1/2 inches will taste a little different than the one that starts at 5 1/2 inches.
If a manufacturer excels at making a great cigar 42 ring x 6 1/2 inches, it does not necessarily follow that the same brand in other sizes will be as good or as consistent. You’ll have to try a box of each. If you’re not accustomed to smoking a certain size that you might be curious about, maybe you should enlist the cooperation of a friend who smokes that size regularly.
Buying Your First Cigar
With so many choices and a whole new vocabulary, you might not even know where to start. If that sounds like you, try following this brief guide to buying cigars for beginners. It won't teach you everything, but hopefully it will make your first foray into cigar buying a success.
1. Stick to Valley Tobacco
Buying from a Valley Tobacco has many advantages.
You'll have a large selection of quality cigars to choose from. Plus, you can count on the fact that those cigars have been well cared for.
what's more, you'll have excellent guidance. The knowledgeable staff can help you pick out the right cigar and share some cigar tips for beginners. If you really want to learn about cigars, at Valley Tobacco is the perfect classroom.
2. Purchase a few at a time.
When you're just starting with cigars, you won't know what you like, and your preferences will change quickly. That's why it's smart to only buy a few at a time. you'll be able to experiment with a bunch of different cigars, and even more importantly, you won't be stuck with a lot of cigars that you don't enjoy.
3. Start on the mild side.
For a newcomer, full-bodied smokes can be overwhelming and potentially even unpleasant. So one of the most common cigar tips for beginners is to choose mild cigars. They'll ease you into cigar smoking and ensure that you're not turned off at the very beginning.
4. Don't break the bank
As a Valley Tobacco buying tip, you usually get what you pay for. But as a newcomer, there's no need to spend a fortune. You can get a quality cigar for under $10, and at your level, you don't need to light up anything too fancy. Stick to moderately priced cigars at first, and once your palate develops, then you can treat yourself to that extravagant smoke.
Cigar and Beer Matching
It's a good time to be a beer drinker.
And with a growing interest in craft beer has come a growing interest in cigar and beer pairings.
How to choose a cigar that matches your favorite beer is like all things concerning flavor: subjective. Some might swear by one pairing. Others might not fancy it at all. it's about experimenting with different combinations of flavors and finding ones that suit your taste. And that's part of the fun of it.
However, when it comes to cigar and beer pairings, there is one rule that you hear again and again: try to match the the type of cigar with the type of beer. That means milder cigars with lighter beers and full-bodied smokes with heavier beers. This helps avoid one half of the pairing overwhelming the other.
You can also try to create cigar and beer pairings around common flavors. For example, a stout with hints of chocolate and espresso could meet its match in a cigar with similar flavors.
