Cuban Piramides

Last night I smoked on of these beautiful H. Upmann No. 2’s and I wondered if I had ever enjoyed a cigar as much as I enjoy Piramides.  There is something about the size and shape and how it feels in your hand that makes smoking one of these cigars a very elegant experience.  If you’re looking for a torpedo shaped cigar 6.1 inches long and a 52 ring gauge, this is what you want.

Different brands coming out of Cuba make Piramides and some of my favorites have to be the Montecristo No. 2 , the Partagas Serie P No. 2 , Vegas Robaina Unicos and my favorite of favorites, the Cohiba Piramides Edicion Limitada 2001 and 2006. The cigars I just mentioned would ALL be great after a full meal but you need almost 2 hours to sit back and slowly enjoy some of Cuba’s finest creations.

Almost annually Cuba comes up with Piramides that are Regional Editions that get sent around the world and if you pay attention to these releases, have a good friend at a reputable cigar shop ( Trevor Wallace at The Vancouver Cigar Company…hint hint ) then you can stock up on some very consistently rolled cigars!  Through the last decade almost every brand out of Cuba have produced Piramides but some are harder to locate than others.. THIS is why you need friends in high places!!!! Thanks Trevor!!
