Aficionados of fine cigars and Cognacs will find the ultimate Colorado high just two hours from the Denver International Airport, at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch (ritzcarlton.com). Here, in the speakeasy-style Bachelors Lounge, guests of the resort may order His Majesty’s Reserve, billed as “the most expensive cigar in the world.” Priced at $2,000 each, this 7½ x 52 double corona from Gurkha Cigars is hand rolled in the Dominican Republic and features an 18-year-old broadleaf maduro wrapper, a 12-year-old Dominican filler and binder, and a special finishing touch: The tobaccos have been infused with Louis XIII Cognac, a blend of 1,200 Grand Champagne eaux-de-vie that have been aged from 40 to 100 years. His Majesty requires about two hours to smoke—which works out to about $55 a puff.
