Top 25 List

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately this list is more dictated by who pays to advertise in their magazine than the actual quality/flavor/performance of the cigars. To be fair, I have not tried any of the 2017 versions of theses cigars.

Interesting take on the top cigar lists for last year.

The reason why the top 3 cigars were chosen were due to the fact that the men who started all the companies (Padron, Oliva, & Fuente) all passed away last year. My every day cigar is Padron 4000. There are people who rant and rave about Fuente, but honestly, not a fan. Oliva is ok.

 

Love me some Romeo 505, Caldwell, AJ Fernandez New World, and Tatuaje.

 

I agree with you about Bolivar Belicoso Fino...that is my #1 cigar...ever! I just came back from Cape Town and got a bunch of them!

I think Carlos Sr. passed in 2016.  Cigar industry lost some true pioneers in the last couple of years.  Smoked the AF eye of the shark, last week,  nothing special, could be that I am not a fan of the Cameroon wrapper.  Best stick in the shark line hands down is still the Anejo No. 77

I haven't heard of many of these and I'm not too keen on spending larger denominations trying out cigars that I probably won't like. Stick with what you like, unless it is a known crowd-pleaser.

 

My humidor carries a supply of Acid Kuba Kuba at all times for easy smokes and give aways for golf buddies who don't regularly smoke. C.A.O. Brazilia and Davidoff Zino Platinum Grand Master round out the box.

 

Otherwise, I stick to my trusty pipe and some well-blended classics.

 

Other than the Bolivar Belicoso Fino, any suggestions for "must try?"

 

Thanks
