The Most Expensive Cigars In The World

By on December 30, 2012

For those who have the money to “burn,” cigars are one of their most popular luxuries. Creating a cigar is a fine art of choosing the best tobacco and rolling the best stick, and there are many world-renowned cigars to smoke. While most cigars cost about $10, some are a whole lot more. Here are the most expensive cigars in the world.

Gran Habano Corojo #5 El Gigante
$20,000

The Gran Habano Corojo #5 El Gigante isn’t a typical cigar, because it’s a giant production cigar made with 1,600 pounds of tobacco. The tobacco blend is the same used to make the normal-sized Gran Habano Corojo #5, which is a very highly-rated cigar. El Gigante has 40 suction tubes so that it’s actually possible to smoke with a little help from some friends. For $20,000 you get this giant cigar and a trip to the Gran Habano factory to watch it being made.

Gurkha Black Dragon
$1,500

The original, limited edition 2006 Gurkha Black Dragon cigars came in boxes made of hand-carved camel bone, and there were only five boxes produced, each containing 100 cigars. A box cost $115,000. The cigars contained some of the finest, rarest tobacco from all over the world. After this run, a second line of Gurkha Black Dragon cigars were produced for $10 each.

Gurkha His Majesty’s Reserve
$750

Each Gurkha His Majesty’s Reserve cigar is infused with Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac. A bottle of Louis XIII Cognac retails for about $2,500, so it’s easy to see why a cigar company could charge so much for a single cigar containing a little bit of the prestigious liquor. One box of His Majesty’s Reserve cigars costs $15,000.

Cohiba Behike
$450

The Cohiba Behike is a limited edition 2006 cigar that was created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Cuban cigar manufacturer Cohiba. The cigars were sold in custom humidors that included 40 cigars each, and only 100 humidors were made. One of the humidors cost $18,000, and all of the cigars were hand-rolled.

Arturo Fuente Opus X BBMF
$79

The BBMF in the name of this expensive cigar stands for Big Bad Mother F—–, and that’s because it’s one of the largest cigars in the world. An Arturo Fuente Opus X BBMF is 9.2 inches long with a 43 ring, making it much larger than standard cigars. You can only buy these cigars singly, and they’re a rare find that most cigar shops don’t carry.

Don Arturo Edicion Aniversario
$78

This is another Arturo Fuente cigar that was created in 2001, but it wasn’t for sale until 2008. This cigar was named after the founder of the Arturo Fuente cigar company, and it was created by the founder’s son Carlito Fuente who bought the company in 1958.

Louixs
$50

The Louixs cigar was specially-made for the Beverly Hills Cigar Club, and this prestigious honor has made it one of the most luxurious and expensive cigars in the world. Each six-inch cigar costs a whopping $50.
