The Best Cuban Cigars to Smoke When Watching These Movies

There are thousands of different movies which come under an array of different genres, but what is common amongst all of them is that they provide a form of entertainment to the viewer, be that in escapism, appreciation of art or just to simply relax. All of the cigars for sale in the world in a similar vein have purposes parallel to these.

We thoroughly enjoy lighting up any of our cigars online after a long day and settling into the sofa to watch an excellent and enthralling movie, genres unbound. Therefore, we’ve collated a list of the best Cuban cigars to smoke when you decide to do just that. We mean, its difficult enough deciding on a movie, let alone choosing a cigar to smoke whilst watching it.

An absolute classic, one that enthrals, entertains and catapults you into a world of emotion. The Great Escape portrays a group of soldiers who have been imprisoned in a German camp during the Second World War. The story depicts the soldiers attempts to escape and distract Nazi soldiers from the war by becoming fugitives. Steve McQueen, the protagonist, gives one of his most profound and powerful performances of his life.

The Bolivar Royal Coronas Cigar is an obvious choice for such a great (we couldn’t resist) movie. These cigars for sale are strong to overpowering and the flavours are very hard to ignore.

One of the most talked about films of last year, this coming-of-age drama film depicts a gay love story written by James Ivory and directed by Luca Guadagnino. It tells the tale of falling in love for the first time and not being able to forget it. The setting, the scenes, and the styling of this film is truly sensational and one we’re still not quite over yet either.

Our recommendation: 

Romeo y Julieta Cigars are the brand we would choose to smoke when watching this beautiful film. We particularly recommend the Romeo y Julieta Romeo de Luxe Edición Limitada 2013 Cigar, which is equally as beautiful and delivers delicious and aromatic flavours.

Okay, you’re right this isn’t a movie, but it is worth a watch as an informative and interesting documentary which tells the story of Cuba and Cuban cigars. As told and documented by cigar expert and aficionado, James Suckling, viewers can expect fascinating insights.


Montecristo Cuban cigars can be enjoyed at any time, with their medium flavoured profile and the Montecristo No.4 Cigar can be enjoyed in around 40-50 minutes, perfect for this short documentary.


  1. Isle of Dogs – 2018

This latest animation by the weird and wonderful Wes Anderson is truly spectacular. Intricately detailed and devilishly funny, whilst charming, it ticks all of the boxes on Anderson’s checklist. The soundtrack is sublime and the sushi scene is even more so. 

For this light hearted movie, we recommend the following cigars online:

The Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No.2 is mild in strength but sophisticated in character with smooth, nutty and grassy notes.
