10 Most Expensive Cigars in the World

Want to know which are the most expensive cigars in the world? If you are a true cigar aficionado, you will probably love this list. All in all, this hobby is quite expensive and is generally reserved for mature men who enjoy the relaxation and taste of a fine cigar, as the average cigar is priced anywhere from $2 to $20 dollars.

Most Expensive Cigars in the World

Naturally, the cigars on our list are more expensive than that, but we decided to stick to somewhat ‘regular’ cigars. In other words, we didn’t take into account collectable cigars, luxurious sticks infused with cognac, unsmokable giant habanos nor 600-year-old Mayan cigars. Although we kept it rather simple, that doesn’t mean that their quality is in any way inferior to the collectables; in fact, some of them are listed in the 2013 Top 25 for the Best Cigars of the Year, compiled by Cigar Aficionado.

If you like living in luxury, and getting the best out of life and are willing to spend whatever is necessary to get it, then you should also check out our other “most expensive” countdowns, such as the one on The 14 Most Expensive Android Apps. After reading it you’ll surely get some ideas to keep your smartphone properly updated with the latest and fanciest apps in the market you could enjoy alongside your cigar.
