Winston Churchill Cigar

November 24, 2009 · Posted in Cigar Community 

Everyone knows that Winston Churchill loved his cigars and, I think, many people admire him partially because of his ferocious appetite for the good life, which included lots of liquor in addition to the cigars. Now, have you ever wanted to know what one of Sir Winston Churchill’s cigars would cost today? Wonder no more!

The cigar has now been valued at £800 by an expert during the filming of the Antiques Roadshow.

Student Christian Williams, 33, was given the cigar when he was just 12 by his grandad Ronald Williams, a WWII veteran.

At over six inches long the cigar has never been touched by its owner, who keeps it safe in a sturdy wooden box.

It was taken from a historic meeting between Churchill and the other Allied leaders at the famous Casablanca Conference.

Based off current exchange rates that means the cigar is worth something like $1 million – that’s an expensive cigar! But, based off the looks of it, I don’t think anyone is ever going to be smoking this cigar due to the poor conditions it was stored in.
