Anyone who's read this post in the past knows how much we admire Swisher Sweets. As one of the largest selling brands of cigars on the planet, Swisher continues to be an innovator in cigar production since their introduction in 1958. Known for their variety of flavors and blends to suit just about anyone's taste, you can find Swisher's sold in stores and online world-wide. In 2019, Swisher's Original (Sweet) and Diamond were the #1 and #2 best-selling large cigars in they US market, according to sales data collected from MSAi, with sales that eclipsed the next five best-selling cigars combined.
Swisher Sweets products are sold in the following categories: Classics, Encore Edition, Limited Edition, Mini's, BLK, Filtered Cigars, Coronella, Outlaws, Tip Cigarillo, Blunts, Kings, Slims, Wood Tip, Giants, Perfecto and now Leaf wraps.
The following list are the top selling Swisher Sweet flavors of 2019.
2. Grape - Another Classic flavor, Swisher's Grape has been noted as one of the top grape flavored cigars on the market.
3. Green Sweet - Classic Green Sweet has a lightly-sweetened cap to add the perfect amount of sweetness to the mellow-bodied, natural leaf cigar.
4. Strawberry - Classic Strawberry has been noted as one of the best strawberry flavored cigars anywhere - combining the sweetness of delicious sweet strawberry and adding just the right amount of tart.
5. Tropical Fusion - Newest to the Classic category, Tropical Fusion combines tropical fruit flavors and berry flavors to create a refreshing blend.
6. Wild Rush - The only Limited Edition flavor to make the list, Wild Rush blends the flavors of sweet fruit and watermelon to make one of Swisher's newest top selling flavors.
7. BLK Cherry - Different from it's classic cigarillo counterpart, Swisher BLK Cherry combines pipe tobacco with the sweet taste of cherries - and finished with a black tip for a smooth smoke.
8. BLK Smooth - Another cigar from their BLK line, Swisher BLK Smooth combines pipe tobaccos and flavor to make a creamy and smooth mellow smoke - and a black tip for an ultra smooth smoking experience.
9. Diamond - Sometimes described as the "unsweet Swisher" - Swisher Diamond is the same great cigar as Original, just without the sweet taste. Ranked the #2 selling cigar in the US.
10. Original (Sweet) - The Original Swisher Sweet, introduced in 1958, is an exceptionally even-burning cigar that combines the perfect amount of sweet to give the smoker a mild-bodied smoke. Ranked the #1 selling cigar in the US.
* Honorable mention - Sweet Cream. New to the market in 2019, Sweet Cream quickly became a hit, offering an alternative to the already popular Sweet with an added hint of rich cream. We're likely to see this flavor bump out one of the top ten in 2020.
Whatever your flavor, you can't deny that Swisher Sweets has it's "finger on the pulse" of flavored cigars. Many cigar manufacturer's make attempts to replicate Swisher's classic tastes, but in the end - no one can match the classic taste of a Swisher.
