Top 10 Most Expensive Cigars In The World

1. Gurkha Royal Courtesan Cigar

Price: $1.36 million Per Cigar

These cigars define luxury. Blindfolded (yes, really!), professionals hand roll these cigars allowing their senses to guide them as they craft this extravagant Cigar. The burning question is, what do you get when you pay over a million dollars for a cigar? 


With Gurkha’s Royal Courtesan, you’re getting handcrafted cigars that are made from an extremely rare Himalayan tobacco stuffing only found in Nepal’s Himalayan Mountains. The stuffing is watered with pure Fiji water. The tobacco is infused with Remy Martin’s Black Louis XIII cognac, which costs $165,000 per bottle. 

That’s not all. Next, the cigars are wrapped in gold leaf. It is all held together with a five-carat diamond-encrusted band. 


At $1.36 million, this makes Gurkha Royal Courtesan the most expensive cigar in the world


Do you have a sweet tooth? If so, Le Chocolate Box at $1.5 million per box pairs nicely with the Gurkha Royal Courtesan. 


2. Mayan Sicars

Price: $507,000 Per Box 

The second most expensive Cigar on our list is the world’s oldest Cigar. The Mayan Sicar dates back to the 12th century. The Mayan civilization brought these cigars to the world. A group of archaeologists from Tampa University discovered these cigars buried underground in clay pots in a Guatemalan village in 2012.


Why are these cigars so costly? Age. These cigars are well-preserved, believe it or not. After 600 years, they’re still considered safe to smoke.Talk about aged tobacco!

The hefty price tag of $507,000 for the collection was paid by cigar collector and owner of Santiago Cigar Factory, Gary Liotta.

 

3. Regius Double Corona Cigar

Price: $52,785.20 Per Cigar

Regius Cigars in Nicaragua produce this premium cigar. Your 52K doesn’t only get you the medium body full-flavored double corona, but also a trip to Regius Cigars’ Nicaragua headquarters, a guided tour of the factory with CEO Akhil Kapacee, and 1,000 custom rolled smokes. Talk about a full-service experience!One notable buyer of this fine cigar was cigar enthusiast, Callum Jones. Jones was only 18 years old at the time of the purchase (2013).

  

4. King of Denmark Cigar

Price: $4,500 Per Cigar 

Are you royalty, wannabe royalty, or simply someone with a ton of extra money to burn? If you’re any or all of the above, this could be your Cigar. Living up to its name, this is a luxury cigar fit for a king.


Made with the finest tobacco, the King of Denmark is wrapped in gold foil and dotted with Swarovski crystals. The buyer’s name is also engraved on the Cigar. 

Up to 30 of these cigars are made daily, making it a rare find, and contributing to the King of Denmark’s high price tag. Their custom limited edition humidors can also be purchased for an additional $8500. The humidor is gold plated and features a sterling silver crown. 


What goes well with a cigar fit for a king? How about a nice cold Allsopp’s Arctic Ale, which sells for $503,300 a bottle. 


5. Gurkha Black Dragon Cigars

Price: $1,150 Per Cigar or $115,000 Per Box

This is the Gurkha brand’s second appearance on our list. If you don’t have a cool million to spend on a cigar, perhaps the Gurkha Black Dragon will be more your speed. This limited edition release took place in 2006. Therefore, they are difficult to find today. 


This particular cigar measures 8.5 by 52 inches. The case housing these cigars is carved from camel bone. The cigars come wrapped in a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. The binder is Cameroonian, and the filler hails from the Dominican Republic.  

As you smoke the Cigar, it initially produces a sour flavor; later, the flavor becomes sweet. 


6. Gurkha His Majesty’s Reserve

Price: $750 Per Cigar or $14,999 Per Box

This is Gurkha’s third and final appearance on our list. His Majesty’s Reserve (HMR) is famous for its exquisite taste and its high price tag. However, $750 per Cigar doesn’t seem all that expensive compared to what we’ve already seen. 


Gurkha’s HMR is known as the Rolls Royce of cigars for a good reason. This Cigar’s wrapper is made of Connecticut Maduro. Its 12-year-old Dominican binder and filler are aged with an entire bottle of Louis XIII cognac. Only 75 boxes of these cigars are made each year. 


7. Cohiba Behike Cigars

Price: $470 Per Cigar or $18,800 Per Box

These premium cigars hail from Cuba. They are one of many limited edition cigars featured on this list. This edition was released in 2006 to mark Cohibida’s 40th anniversary, with only about one-hundred boxes sold.


Unfortunately, it’s sold out on most online retailers. If you do find the Cohiba Behike, you’ll likely pay more than its original $470 price tag.

These cigars are made with a touch of the rare Medio Tiempo tobacco, the small leaves that grow atop some Cuban tobacco plants. This is what imbues the Cigar with its robust flavor. Its limited supplies and the Medio Tiempo leaves influence this Cigar’s price. These are among the most expensive Cuban cigars available. 


What would go well with a cigar of this caliber? Enjoying a rich cup of Black Ivory Coffee, which goes for $1500 per pound.


8. Arturo Fuente Opus X

Price: $30,000 Per Box

This Dominican Cigar is among the most sought after premium cigars in the world. Before the 1990s, The Dominican Republic was considered unsuitable for growing quality wrapper tobacco. Grown with Cuban seeds, the Arturo Fuente Opus X changed everything. 


This Cigar has an unmistakable and unique taste considered impossible to duplicate. This Cigar has a leathery taste with a hint of red pepper. These rare cigars are in great demand, which keeps their price high. 


9. Fuente Don Arturo AnniverXario

Price: $163 Per Cigar or $7500 Per Box

Another rare find, the Fuente Don Arturo AnniverXario, as the name suggests, was released to commemorate the Fuente Cigar Company’s 100th anniversary. The company initially planned to release the cigars yearly, beginning in 2002 to mark the 100th anniversary, but the plan was scrapped due to various production delays. Instead, these cigars were released only in 2008. 


This Cigar is wrapped in cedar, giving it a unique taste composed of pepper, cinnamon, and other spices. 


10. Arturo Fuente Opus X “A”

Price: $79 Per Cigar

Arturo Fuente makes a second appearance on our list with the “A” version of the Arturo Fuente Opus X. This Cigar is notable for its size, measuring over 9 inches long. This is a humongous Dominican puro. Don’t be surprised if people do a double-take when you sit back to smoke this one. Its size sets it apart from average-sized cigars. 


Opus X is one of the highest-rated cigars with good reason. The full-bodied flavor has a smooth yet bold flavor. High demand and limited supplies keep this Cigar’s price relatively high.
