The Best Cigars for Winter Smoking

We’re well into winter—temperatures are dropping and the days are shorter. These conditions can make smoking a cigar much harder. At Black Cat, we’re here to offer you options on warm, rich flavored cigars to really heat things up this winter. It’s time to put your larger cigars in humidor hibernation and adapt to the cold weather as we share a couple of our favorite cigars to get you through the bleary wintertime.

At Black Cat Cigar Company, we believe there’s no need to sacrifice on flavor as your smoking time is cut short by the inevitable cold weather and lack of sunlight. If you’re forced to enjoy a smoke outside this winter, your best option is to find a smaller cigar. Reducing the ring gauge and length of the cigars you’re smoking this season can put the enjoyment back into your session. Our two favorites for smaller sticks are made by Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta.


One of our favorite smaller smoke options is Montecristo’s White Label cigars. These elegant sticks are reminiscent of the original Montecristo’s, providing a rich, creamy, and flavorful taste for a smooth, well-rounded smoke. Enjoy an Especial No. 1 or Especial No. 3 which are both smaller in size and boast a ring gauge of 44 inches. On especially cold days when you just don’t have the time to enjoy a full cigar, try Montecristo’s Pronto Petites. These 4-inch cigars capture the essence of the larger Montecristo’s but in a much smaller size. They make for the perfect cold weather smoke, lasting anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour depending on how fast you want to get out of the cold! 

Romeo y Julieta

Another popular choice, Romeo y Julieta, offers some great options for a cold winter day smoke including their 1875 collection. Named after the lovers in the famous Shakespearean tragedy, these cigars are small in size, but rich in taste. They provide the user a smooth, mellow flavor that is mild to medium bodied and finishes with a slightly peppery aftertaste. The Julietas and Petit Julietas make for the perfect cold weather smoke, packing a ton of flavor in 4.875” and 3.625” cigars, respectively. These small cigars are proof that you can get a premium cigar in a small package without sacrificing taste and quality.  

Don’t let the cold weather put a damper on your cigar smoking. With plenty of options available from Black Cat, we encourage you to grab your warmest coat, gloves and boots, pour yourself your favorite warm beverage and enjoy the winter weather with one of these smokes in hand!
