A cigar connoisseur knows that a perfect cigar is the product of an excellent combination of weather, geographical location, and skills of experienced tobacco rollers. There is a fair bit of thought put into rolling a fine pack of the cigar. This combination of selection and skills is what carries a hefty price tag on these cigars. 

There are cigars that are a symbol of luxury and panache! But few are as expensive as to break the bank. We have combined below, a list of most expensive cigars in the world for all the aficionados who are eager to dig out their pockets to have a royal smoking experience.

  • Gurkha Royal Courtesan Cigar- $1 million

A seven-figure price tag sets the standard for lavish smokes. The cigar is packed with fine Himalayan tobacco that is only watered using Fiji water. Each cigar is wrapped in gold leaf and adorns diamonds of about five carats. The cigar is infused with the luscious Remy Martin Black Pearl Louis XIII. To ensure the extravaganza of its quality, only selected blindfolded artisans roll this cigar, blindfolding heightens their other senses and removes distractions. If you can afford this lavish cigar, it will be personally delivered to you by a messenger wearing white gloves.

  • Mayan Sicars-$507k 

These well-preserved cigars are dated back to 600 years ago. The Mayan Sicars were discovered by a team of archaeologists from Tampa University. These cigars are still in excellent condition because they were buried deep under the ground in sealed clay pots. This discovery led to a fight among tobacco connoisseurs to get a hand on this prized possession. A collector, Gary Liotta, took home the entire collection by bidding the highest at $507k.

  • Double Corona- Regius Cigars Ltd.- $54k per cigar

A single, special-edition cigar was created and sold at $54000 to a businessman Callum Jones in 2013.

And finally, before boxing, the cigar is inserted into the nether regions of a Brazilian supermodel where it is held at ideal humidity (and pH) for 21 days (for obvious reasons) while high-intensity aerobic exercise is performed by the supermodel daily.

I'm thinking we haven't heard from the guy that bought the Mayan cigars for awhile. Wonder if he had some scientist test one and got similar results.

Yes, Hillary last made a bid for the summit in 2016.  It was widely expected to be a success, and all forecasts were consistently good.  Then she was buried in a "landslide".

Bill was, as usual, at the (third) base camp.

Must be an old article - at $18000 a box I'd take 10 boxes right away ....
That is the price they went for at release.
