FATHER’S DAY GIFT: The Best Flavored Cigars

Some people enjoy their cigars with a beer, Bourbon or other spirit.

Ted’s Cigars combine both flavors in one.

Fifteen years ago, Ted Jackson was asked by Kentucky neighbor Maker’s Mark to make a cigar for a Derby party. The result was a premium cigar flavored with the famous Bourbon.

Jackson created a process to add a subtle bourbon flavor without affecting the integrity of the fine tobacco. A big hit, millions of Maker’s Mark cigars are now sold worldwide.

The flavored line expanded to include a HOPZ Craft Beer cigar, Grand Marnier, Dumante Verdenoce Pistachio Liqueur and Forty Creek Barrel Select Canadian Whisky.

The cigars are also available in traditional, unflavored versions including The Kentucky Derby, the official cigar of the famous horse race.

All of the cigars are packaged in glass tubes and do not require a humidifier. They are available in two distinct blends and three sizes, with either a Connecticut shade or a Maduro wrapper. Dads who enjoy a good cigar will welcome this unusual gift.


For special events, you can create cigars in a glass tube labeled with a company name, as well as custom neck bands.

The cigars are made by a partner company in the Dominican Republic, from a proprietary blend of Brazilian, Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco. The flavoring and packaging done at Jackson’s Louisville, Kentucky-based headquarters.

The products are carried at fine tobacconists nationwide and can be purchased online at
