Top 10 Cigars of 2013


With Cigar Aficionado set to release their much anticipated Top 25 List in the next week, we did a poll among our team to pick the Top 10 Cigars in Lit over the past year.

To be eligible, the cigar had to be new in our humidor this year. Each member of our team picked a top 10 and the consensus list was published by our good friends at the Kirkland Cigar Club blog.

Check out the article here and please let us know what your pick for the best cigar of the year is the next time you're in!

Happy Smoking!

Lit Cigar Lounge Top 10 Cigars for 2013


For our top 10 list this year, we did something a little different.  We created a ballot listing all of the new cigars available at Lit during 2013 and each member of our team voted on their favorite 10 cigars.  We awarded 20 points for a number 1 vote down to 11 points for a number 10 vote.  Here are the results:

10. Monte by Montecristo – This new blend from Montecristo makes the list, following in the footsteps of our #1 cigar last year, the Epic #2.  Altadis has been on quite a roll lately, with two other cigars receiving votes but finishing just out of the top 10 (H. Upmann Legacy and Saint Luis Rey Gen2). The Monte is a fuller bodied blend which is reminiscent of the Epic, but at a lower price point. It features a spicy Ecuador Habano wrapper and solid construction and rich flavors. We love the Jacopo #2 size, a box press torpedo, but our guests prefer the Monte in the 6x60 size.

9. La Flor Dominicana Chapter One – This new blend from Litto’s son Antonio Gomez, has brought the patented Chisel shape into the 21st century.  This cigar is rich, large and produces tons of smoke.  We only wish there were more available as they’ve been sold out for a few months now.

8. Tatuaje Monster JV13 – The first of a few sold out Limited Editions on this year’s list, the “Jason” came and went in a matter of a week right around Halloween.  Featuring a dark Broadleaf wrapper and a beefy Double Corona size, the JV13 was the most popular Tatuaje release of the year.  Also gaining votes were the Noella Reserva and the 10th Anniversary blend.

7. Leccia Black – One of the most innovative cigars of the year comes from former Nub creator Sam Leccia, who returned to the industry after a long layoff with two new blends: Leccia Black and Leccia White. The Leccia Black, featuring fire cured tobacco in the filler blend, has a rich, woody, and smoky flavor that has some similarities to pipe tobacco.  This cigar pairs great with whiskey, our beverage of choice at Lit!

6. Room 101 Namakubi Ecuador – These full bodied cigars produced by Camacho for Matt Booth’s Room 101 brand created quite a stir in Lit earlier this year.  With their elaborate shapes and eye catching Day of the Dead packaging, we were unable to keep them on the shelf. As with many of the top cigars of the year, the Namakubi features that spicy Ecuador Habano wrapper.  Look for this cigar to be back in stock at Lit for 2014.

5. Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro

4. Oliva Serie V Melanio – Both Melanio lines garnered votes from almost everyone at Lit.  Launched late in 2012, the natural Melanio line was highly regarded by critics, winning cigar of the year from Cigar Snob magazine, but didn’t arrive in Lit until 2013.  Featuring a mellower, more complex flavor profile and a special box pressed shape, the Melanio stands out from the stronger and darker Serie V line.  The Melanio Maduro, an annual limited release in the torpedo shape, quickly sold out creating much anticipation for next year’s eventual release.

3. Don Pepin Garcia 10th Anniversary – Another big year for the Garcia family, who also received votes for the Tres Reynas, San Cristobal Revelation and El Centurion cigars.  The 10th Anniversary was a limited edition cigar honoring the 10th anniversary of the brand, started in 2003 in Miami’s Little Havana. Only 28000 cigars were produced, packaged in beautiful boxes and individually boxed in coffins.  The aged Ecuador Habano wrapper enveloped a rich, complex and full bodied blend that may be one of the Garcia family’s best cigars yet.  These cigars were sold out in a few weeks and are worth hunting down on the secondary market if you haven’t tried one.

2. Arturo Fuente Opux X Destino al Siglo – This much delayed cigar commemorating Fuente’s 100th Anniversary finally arrived at Lit last month.  Sadly, we only received 58 Belicosos and 10 Lanceros which were gone in days.  If the Opus cigar wasn’t hard enough to find, hunting down this one will even be a tougher task.  This Dominican Puro features only tobaccos grown at the Chateau de la Fuente.  With these types of special releases coming more often and in smaller quantities, it’s another reminder to ask your tobacconist what’s new and what’s special the next time you’re at Lit!

1. San Lotano Oval Lit 5th Anniversary – Since this is a poll of the Lit team, it’s no surprise that we’re a bit partial about our first and only custom blend!  The Lit 5th Anniversary Oval is a special blend featuring (surprise!) a Habano wrapper and aged tobaccos all at least 5 years old in honor of our 5th Anniversary.  Unlike the other special releases on this list, we still have these in stock and will be promoting them for some time.  With its unique oval box-pressed shape and rich Nicaraguan tobaccos, this cigar is hearty and complex with notes of pepper, leather, wood and dried fruit.  We’re pleased with how our first custom blend turned out and look forward to having more cigars blended especially for us in the future!

Honorable Mention:  With four of the top 10 cigars being out of production, here are a few more that received votes by our team, but didn’t quite make the list.  Check them out as well the next time you’re in Lit!

San Cristobal Revelation – The newest release from Ashton features a lower priming of the delicious Ecuador Sumatra wrapper used on the VSG cigar and has a complex medium bodied flavor.

Quesada Oktoberfest – A full bodied Dominican puro released in limited quantities every fall, there are still a few of these in stock, but when they’re gone, we’ll be waiting until next fall to get more!

H. Upmann Legacy – Another solid medium bodied cigar at a great value, the Legacy features all 2008 vintage tobacco and solid construction.  A home run for the famous Upmann brand!

Tatuaje 10th Anniversary – Unlike the Pepin 10th Anniversary, these cigars will be regularly produced going forward.  The Tatuaje 10th comes in two sizes, a toro and a shorter perfecto, both are full flavored and have that famous Pepin pepper kick that we love so much.

Thanks again to all of our valued customers for making 2013 another very successful year for the Lit Cigar Lounge.  Let us know your top cigar of the year next time your in!

La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero

Big Dog Cigar - 6.5 x 60


You know, when I look at this cigar sitting on the counter all by itself, it looks pretty normal - rich color wrapper, normal proportions, attractive label, everything looks just fine, but when I pick it up and hold it in my hand, I gotta tell ya: "IT WAS MADE FOR A GIANT!"  No kidding - It's big, very BIG! That being said, once you get over that awkwardness of puffing on a cigar of this enormity (60 gauge), you'll see that it's really a great smoke, even for all us little people. Honestly, who was this cigar designed for?


Anyway, I've smoked a bunch of these double ligeros in all shapes and sizes, and they're not as ass-kicking as you might think. Yes, they're definitely fuller bodied than say your run-of-the-mill Oliva, but all-in-all they're pretty darn smooth and not as peppery as you've been led to believe. Draw and burn are pretty much right on the mark, never had any complaints, and the cigar produces a fair amount of smoke. It's really the perfect "after-dinner" cigar and it pairs well with just about anything - bourbon or rum tend to be my libations of choice these days.

Would I buy it again? Heck yes! It may not be at the top of my list and I doubt I'll buy one of these baseball bats again, but for sure I'll buy the double ligero blend. Delicious smoke!

San Lotano Oval Lit Cigar Lounge 5th Anniversary Edition

Bought a box of these at the cigar festival a few weeks back...


So what did I think? 

GREAT cigar! 

No kidding! I've smoked a bunch of these since the event and they've moved up to my list of favorites. Honestly, they're a little stronger than what I normally smoke, but Holy Crap, these are good! Absolutely the perfect cigar after a big meal - Smooth, flavorful, perfect draw, tons of smoke, and that oval shape, yeah, it's pretty neat!

Would I buy them again? Unequivocally YES! Superior cigar!

Side notes: 
You may not have noticed this, but there is a link on this blog to a calendar of events - it list all that's happening in King County, plus an occasional post from our friends to the south. (10-7 Habanero Club)

Trick or Treat!

It's that time of year! We've just received a very limited allocation (40 cigars) of the 2013 installment of Tatuaje's Monster Series, the JV13.

While supplies last, we'll sell you one of these highly sought after cigars for every regular production Tatuaje cigar you purchase, limit 3 per person per day. Here's an informative review of the JV13, with a complete history of the Monster Series.

Join us Thursday, October 31 from 6-9pm as we feature special deals on La Flor Dominicana cigars and Tomatin Highland Single Malt.

We'll be giving away a La Flor DL-700 cigar with your purchase of one Double Press and one Factory Press Limitado cigar.

We'll also have a special $15 flight of the Tomatin malts, including the delicious Limited Edition 15 year aged in a combination of bourbon barrels and temporanillo wine casks.

Only 3,000 bottles or so of this whisky were produced worldwide, truly making it a limited edition single malt.

We hope you'll join us on Halloween for this great pairing!

What's New At Lit

Here's a look at what's new waiting for you next time you visit Lit:

-La Aurora Puro Vintage 2004 - We have a small quantity of this Vintage release from the Dominican Republic's oldest cigar factory. For fans of super premium cigars featuring exquisite aged tobacco, we recommend trying one while they last.

-CAO Flathead - One of the stars of the Washington Cigar & Spirits Festival, the Flathead is a full bodied maduro inspired by the classic iconography of pinup girls and hot rods. Sizes range form a 42 ring lancero all the way to a behemoth 7x70.

-San Cristobal Revelation - the newest cigar from Ashton and the Garcia family, the Revelation features the same delicious Sumatra wrapper as the Ashton VSG, but with a medium bodied profile and a great $8-10 price point. We'll officially launch this cigar at an event in December, but we've received a few boxes to test them out right now.

-Cask Strength Whiskey - With cooler weather upon us, we're moving into high proof whiskey season! We have cask strength offerings from Aberlour, Redbreast and Parker's Heritage Collection for you to try on your next visit!

For those of you wondering about the San Lotano Lit 5th Anniversary Oval that we unveiled at WCSF, we'll be officially releasing this cigar to coincide with Lit's 5th Anniversary on Monday, November 4th. Our pal, Clay Roberts, President of AJ Fernandez will be visiting us for a special event in Lit on Friday, November 15. The initial feedback from this cigar has been incredible. We can't wait for you to try it!

Happy Smoking!
