What Is The Worlds Most Expensive Cigar?
Cigars are produced in many places throughout the world like the Nicaragua,Honduras,Mexico and the Americas, but cigars manufactured in Cuba have always been considered the best cigars in the world. While some cheap cigars have proven to be world class, expensive cigars are regarded as not only tasty, but status symbols of wealth amongst purveyors of the "good life". Two cigars tagged as the "world’s most expensive cigars" may actually hold far more value than their price tag screams.
When the Spanish company Altadis unwrapped their “Behike” cigars, they were the most expensive cigars in the world. These expensive cigars were named after the tribal chief of the Cuban/pre-Colombian Taino Indian tribe. Only four thousand of the limited edition Cohiba branded cigars had been released and each box of forty cigars fetched upwards of $19,000. That's over $400 a smoke..

If you thought that was a nasty price tag take a look to the left at Gurkha’s premier cigar brand, His Majesty’s Reserve. These expensive jems aren't made of just premium tobacco—they’re also infused with a loving' mouthful of Louis XIII Cognac. The special process of marinating these cigars is a secret that allows the leaves to retain the flavor and blend wonderfully with the tobacco. Louis XIII Cognac is one of the highest end cognacs on the market today with a price tag around $2,400 (740ML).
Less than 100 boxes of His Majesty’s Reserve cigars are produced under the watch-full eye of the president of Gurkha Cigars before being shipped to select retailers. At $750 per cigar, just one of these cigars will cost more than the latest IPhone or a good deal on a 7 night cruise. Anyone got $750 to burn?
