Legends started out as a small project. We originally asked our top four cigar manufacturers to create the best damn cigar they could for under $5 apiece. The only other condition — it had to be a 5.75” x 54 size. To get their competitive juices flowing, we let them know that they’d be competing for supremacy with the other top cigar makers. Today, we’ve amassed nine different fantastic blends that are 100% exclusive to CI Nation.
This is truly a star-studded cast of brands. And it’s pretty damn diverse too. The CI Legends by Drew Estate (formerly known as the ‘Copper Label’) is a slightly sweetened, medium-bodied blend that has gone on to become one of the best-selling cigars on our site, period. AJ Fernandez threw his hat in the ring, creating a rich, Cuban-esque blend with a clean, oaky finish. Not to be outdone, Oliva delivered a Cuban-seed combination that’s bold and balanced. So, which one’s the best? Well, that’s like asking me to pick my favorite kid… it depends on the day!
