Many cigar aficionados are dog lovers. What’s not to love? But have you ever wondered what type of dog breed you might be based on your cigar preference? Look no further!
This piece is all about human’s best friend-the dog and what we think you’d be like if you picked your animal based on your cigar of choice. These are meant to fun and humorous. Enjoy! These listings in no way reflect our true feelings about any breed or cigar…maybe.
As note, these are not presented in any particular order.
Padron No. 90 Maduro – Doberman Pinscher
Bold, beautiful, sleek, and chic. The Doberman Pinscher-Padron No. 90 Maduro person is all of these things emulated perfectly. The Doberman is loyal, smart, and versatile while the Padron No. 90 Maduro has a loyal following, is full of flavor, and delicious. Truly a breed/band that can’t be beat! Is this a picture of my own dog, Coffee? Yes. Is the Padron No. 90 Maduro my favorite cigar of all? Yes. Am I just a little bit biased? Probably.
Perez Carillo: Pledge Prequel – The Royal Poodle
Just like the owners and this breed itself, the Perez Carillo Prequel enthusiast likes the top-rated things in life. While the Prequel is a smaller size cigar, the Royal Poodle name is given to the largest-sized standard poodles. Siba, the poodle won the 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and the Prequel won top cigar of 2020. Way to go!
Padilla Finest Hour Connecticut – Chinese Crested Dog
Sent straight from the depths of Hell, this cigar and dog have several things in common: they’re both total dogs and while the Chinese Crested Dog looks objectively ugly, the flavor of the Padilla Finest Hour Connecticut is as truly ugly as they come. What else? They’re both extremely overpriced. The average Chinese Crested “Cracked Out” Dog costs anywhere from $1,500-$2,200.
Asylum 13 80×6 – Presa Canario
Huge, intimidating, and hard to come by. The Asylum 13 80×6 is a mighty giant that is packed with flavor. Now, that is a BIG cigar for the average smoker. The male Presa Canario averages 155lbs and can stand 24 to 26 inches tall. Above, is another shop pup owned by our tobacconist Joel. If you are a Tik Tokker, you know that the average white woman in Birkenstocks would see this dog chained up, walk on over talking in a baby voice, throw the pup in the back of a Subaru Outback, slap a sweater on it and name it Gerald. Accordingly, not just any breed of person can truly handle the obesity that is the Asylum 13 80×6’s.
Perdomo 10th Anniversary Champagne / My Father Judge – Golden Retriever
Old Faithful. If you always go for the Perdomo 10th Anniversary Champagne, you are looking for something golden and classic. You simply cannot go wrong with man’s best friend with either the Golden Retriever, the Perdomo, or the My Father The Judge. The Golden’s tolerant attitude makes it the perfect family pet. The mild flavors of the Perdomo compliment any type of smoking palate. It is also said that the Golden Retriever is a great “judge” of character. Good Boy!
Davidoff Gold Cigarillos – The Yorkshire Terrier
Cute, pocket friendly, and most likely to be found in a rich girl’s purse, these two couldn’t be more perfect for each other! The Yorkshire terrier is energetic, feisty and domineering, but also affectionate. Similarly, Davidoff Gold Cigarillos are sweet and petite with a bold flavor. Both are cherished for their small size, but don’t be scared of a little bite!
Anything Cohiba – Pug
The Pug is literally a dog that screams instead of barks. Have you ever heard this little flat-faced blood curdler wail? I have! Having a Cohiba tonight? I assume you enjoy screaming on the mountaintops that you can smoke a cigar. Pug cries “FEED ME!” and the Cohiba smoker squeals “I SMOKE CIGARS LOOK AT MEEEEEE.” I’d pay money to see these two battle it out.
Rocky Patel White Label Toro – Dachshund
The Rocky Patel White Label is the crème de la crème of the current Rocky Patel line. It’s long like the dachshund and wishes it was a Doberman Pinscher. Fin.
Southern Draw Rose of Sharon – Goldendoodle
For those lusting for a hybrid, the Goldendoodle is the most popular option. The Goldendoodle is a very social dog who should not live away from his family. Similarly, the boutique cigar smoker just wants to share their experience with others and must be in a social setting so that others know they are hip with the times. It’s only a matter of time until the boutique companies turning heads today evolve into tomorrow’s national brands
Arturo Fuente Short Story/Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion – Corgi
In the iconic words of Sir-Mix-A-Lot, I like big butts and I cannot lie! A little guy with a pack of punch, both the Arturo Fuente Short Story and the Corgi bring it with the sass, class, and…well…you know. The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion is not a short boi like the Corgi and the Short Story, but it does come with a nice booty full of variant flavors.
