Lavish Habits for recommendations. From tracking down limited releases and per-embargo Cuban cigars to cigar clubs, cigar reviews, tips and more. Below are some of the world’s most expensive cigars.
1. Gurkha Black Dragon - $1,150 The most expensive cigar of the list is the first production of Gurkha Black Dragon. Only five hand carved camel bone chests of one hundred cigars. The cigar comes in one size, 8.5” by 52. One chest can be yours for $115,000. The second released “similar” blend is $10 to $15 a stick.
2. Gurkha His Majesty's Reserve - $750 Infused with Louis XIII Cognac, only 100 boxes a year are produced and dolled out personally by the company owner, K. Hansotia. It is 7.5” by 52, and at $750 per cigar, a box of twenty will set you back a cool $15,000.
3. Cohiba Behike - $470 The first run of the Behike was released in 2006. One hundred custom humidors of 40 were released with serial numbered bands and a total cost of $18,000. The cigar is 7.5” by 52 ring gauge and is being re-released as a different blend this year for about $50 a stick.
4. Arturo Fuente Opus X “A” - $79.00 A huge powerhouse of a cigar at 9.2 inches long and a 43 ring gauge, and one of the rarest in the world to boot. It comes only as a single cigar, and is available only in select shops and a few online retailers.
.This list does not include the limited releases of the Fuente Charity collection or the extremely rare pre-embargo Cuban cigars, as they change with collector's market price. It is also important to note that several of the cigars listed are of Cuban origin and are included for information only. Readers in the United States should keep in mind that Cuban products are illegal, and should not be purchased. A true aficionado?
