10 of the Most Costly Cigars within the World

While Bangkok cigar lovers can find an impressive selection of cigars in the city, the most expensive cigars in the world are priced as high as 48 million Baht.

Those who really enjoy smoking cigars know well enough how a silent moment with this expensive hand-rolled craft item can grant so much pleasure. Alongside a glass of whiskey, a cigar can rank as one of life’s greatest pleasures — and one of life’s most expensive, too.

The most important factor that determines the quality of the cigars is the tobacco leaf. The best tobacco leaves are known to be found in Cuba. These whole tobacco leaves are then hand rolled to make cigars, which requires time and skill to master. In Bangkok, cigar aficionados can drop by at some of the most luxurious cigar bars and learn more about this artistry there.
