Each year, our tasting panel members smoke hundreds of cigars in order to give you the results of these blind tastings with the most objective impressions possible through our ratings. At the end of the year, we traditionally use the occasion to select those cigars that have remained in our memory.
Only the cigars that received a combined score of 90 points or more and those that were initially released less than two years ago are eligible for selection.
In mid-December, we will publish our Top 25 cigars of the year 2019.
