Tasting Notes

Baby Birth Cigars


No joy supersedes that of having a baby. A new baby represents the beginning of a new chapter in life and the official benchmark of adulthood. A new baby is a joyous occasion often celebrated with gifts for the mother. But what about the father?
We believe the best gift to give to a new father is a cigar. In fact, there are cigar lines from numerous premium brands specially made for this occasion, the 'It’s a Boy,' and 'It’s a Girl' lines.

Why Cigars?

The tradition of gifting cigars to commemorate the birth of a baby dates back to the 17th and 18th centuries with people living in North America and slowly worked its way south during the 18th and 19th centuries.

The presumption is that since fathers were not included in the birthing process, all they could do was wait around and smoke. Before hospitals, the wait would be in a separate room or out with friends. Upon confirmation that the babies were born, the father would pass special cigars to his friends to celebrate the momentous occasion. Even after hospitals, fathers still upheld the tradition of giving cigars to their friends to mark the event.
The tradition is still common today and handing out cigars to friends, family members and colleagues is still the classiest way to memorialize the arrival of a new baby.

Tasting Notes

Cuesta Rey Caravelle It’s a Boy/Girl Cigars

Cuesta Rey Caravelle is an age-old brand associated with aristocratic smokes. After all, Cuesta Rey Caravelle cigars were the official cigars for 19th century’s Spanish King Alfonso XIII.

The Cuesta Rey Caravelle It’s a Boy/Girl line is machine-made at the Tabacalera A. Fuente factory. The Fuente and Newman cigar families came together to create this line. They feature Dominican fillers and binders in a Connecticut Shade wrapper, though it is not unheard of to find Cuesta Rey Caravelle Baby cigars in a Broadleaf Maduro or African Cameroon wrappers.

The fact that this is a Fuente production speaks to the quality of smoke. This mild-medium stogie is a delicious mix of smooth chocolaty earth with sweet citrusy undertones. You will enjoy the subtle white pepper nuances swimming in creamy cocoa and licorice flavors with strong toasted nuts and a pleasant tobacco base. This cigar is a solid 1 hour+ smoke thanks to the legendary Fuente slow burn.

Each cigar comes wrapped in cellophane with the ‘It’s a Boy’ wording done in blue or ‘It’s a Girl’ printed in pink. It comes in a 6 ¼ x 34 Panatela vitola. Even though it is quite cheap at about a dollar a stick, this stogie is all value. The flavor profile of this bad boy is as close to a Cuban smoke as can be.
