San Cristóbal Quintessence Robusto Named Cigar of the Year 2016

Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Hermoso Maduro is #3 of Top 25 of 2016

This cigar arrived in April 2016 in a thick, short format unusual for Padrón as the newest addition to the Anniversary 1964 series, which now contains a dozen formats. The box-pressed Hermoso comes in Maduro as well as Natural.

Hoyo La Amistad Robusto is #4 of Cigar Journal’s Top 25 of 2016

Hoyo de Monterrey’s new line offers a fresh perspective on the brand. General Cigar Co., the brand’s US owner, had the series produced at A.J. Fernandez in Estelí. Not only is this cigar one of the year’s most interesting creations, its price is also impressive.

Aging Room Pelo de Oro Scherzo is #5 of Top 25 of 2016

Distinctive Pelo de Oro tobacco was once popular in Cuba, but because of its susceptibility to blue mold disease and its low yields, it is hardly grown anymore. Collaborating with farmer A.J. Fernandez allowed Rafael Nodal access to Fernandez’ coveted Pelo de Oro harvest.

Perdomo Small Batch 2005 Toro Especial Maduro is #10 of Top 25 of 2016

What’s special about Perdomo’s Small Batch series? Ten-year aged tobaccos, for starters. Small Batch cigars are available with three different wrappers: a Sungrown from Nicaragua, a Connecticut from Ecuador and – our favorite – a Maduro from Nicaragua.
