Here is the complete list of our Top 25 Cigars of 2019. They can also be downloaded as a PDF (US-letter or A4 format), or a JPG.


#1 | A.J. Fernandez Bellas Artes Maduro Robusto

In 2016, A.J. Fernandez introduced the Bellas Artes series in the United States. The Maduro line followed two years later, and for roughly one year has also been available in Europe and Asia. The combination of a Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper and a Mexican San Andrés binder is rather unusual, but is clearly highly appreciated and gives the cigar a unique selling point. It is said that Abdel Fernandez’s inspiration for this series came from visits to the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Havana. The Bellas Artes Maduro series encompasses four vitolas: alongside the Robusto, the Toro, Gordo and Short Churchill formats are available. In addition, a special edition was recently released in the Lancero format.

Tasting notes:
Right from the start, this perfect cigar (not only visually) is expressive. It offers the scent of bread, spices, cacao sweetness; nutty, woody and leathery aromas. The intense aromas are carried by a gentle saltiness, pepper and acidity. Strength, harmony, excitement …

Alan Rubin named his cigar brand that he founded in the 1990s after his two sons, Alec and Bradley. Now the boys have grown up and work for the family business. Blind Faith is the first line they created on their own and was presented in 2018. Apparently they have learned their craft well, because Blind Faith is a successful debut. According to their own information, it is the strongest cigar to date in the Alec Bradley portfolio. Aside from the Gordo, there also Toro and a Robusto.

Tasting notes:
The distinctive woody aroma of this cigar is accompanied by leather, subtle sweetness, coffee and fruity notes. During the smoke, this creamy cigar becomes more expressive, and develops extremely harmoniously.

#4 | Punch Short de Punch

The modernization of the classic Habanos brands continues to progress, thanks to the trendy formats: larger ring gauges, but shorter in length. Habanos S.A. launched the Short de Punch in 2019 as the first 50 ring gauge of the Punch brand, which was founded in the mid-19th century with the intention of being established on the British cigar market. This is also evident in the brand name, which is derived from the very popular Victorian England cartoon Mr. Punch.

Tasting notes:
A really expressive, harmonious cigar with refreshing, intense sweet-fruity notes, elegant cedar aromas and a subtle herbal spice. Later on, the sweetness is more reminiscent of caramel; a gentle tart, nutty tone is added.

Sweetness, piquant notes and roasted aromas contest for supremacy in this cigar. In the creamy smoke, at first the raisin sweetness leads, then the BBQ notes again; then gingerbread, then again pepper and ginger. Exciting harmony.

Tasting notes:
This cigar draws and burns excellently and builds up a solid ash. The fruit-accentuated gentle acidity is a nice counterpoint to the creamy, velvety smoke texture of the cigar. It develops roasted, cedary, and earthy aromas.

The Segovias Maduro Robusto utilises a spicy San Andrés wrapper, lovingly crafted in the south of the Mexican state of Veracruz, where warm winds blow, and volcanic soil produces signature notes.

The cigars come packed in boxes of 21, complete with Boveda packs to maintain humidity.

The sweetness of vanilla, licorice, a bit of cinnamon and fruit agree perfectly with the roasted aromas of coffee and subtle bread and sponge-cake aromas. This Robusto has a razor-sharp burn. The smoke texture is super creamy, with gentle pepper.

#16 | Joya de Nicaragua Cinço Décadas El General

It can’t be said any other way. This cigar more than lives up to the occasion, exactly as the Joya advertising slogan says. In 2018, the brand Joya de Nicaragua celebrated its 50th anniversary, and thus fifty years of the production of premium cigars in Estelí, with an edition that earned much applause and was therefore taken into the regular portfolio of the brand.

A grand cigar that marks a very special date in the calendar.

Tasting notes:
With almost every draw, this cigar offers new experiences. Earthy, nutty and woody aromas, herbs, the freshness of aniseed, the sweetness of chocolate and coffee. It is very creamy, from time to time, fruity and continuously exciting.

Tasting notes:
The earthy and woody aromas are supported by spicy/tangy flavors. Tart roasted aromas, chili spice and sweetness (licorice, cacao), cloves, and fruity notes give the cigar an exciting profile.

Pete Johnson created this Short Churchill in 2018 with the same blend as the other cigars in the Reserva series: an Ecuador Habano Rosado for the wrapper; the binder and filler are comprised of Nicaraguan tobaccos. The result is an intense taste with medium strength. The cigar was baptized “SW,” an abbreviation for Sir Winston.

Tasting notes:
This cigar presents earthy, hay, toasted and nutty aromas with the sweetness of cappuccino in the creamy smoke. Added to this is a lot of spice and a pinch of pepper. Additionally, there are floral notes, cacao and coffee present; overall, a great deal of harmony.

#20 Liberation by Hamlet Toro

CJ_Top25_badge_2019_No20Hamlet Paredes has conquered a niche in the global cigar landscape. This is partly due to the patronage of Rocky Patel. Also, of course, due to the indisputable quality of the cigars of this Cuban, who used to work at the Partagás factory. Hamlet left Cuba in 2015. Liberation by Hamlet Toro consists of an Ecuadorian wrapper, a binder from Nicaragua and a filler blend made from Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos. Characteristic for the cigar is the tapered cigar head and the absence of a wrapper around the first two centimeters of the cigar foot.

Tasting notes:
The first few draws are impetuous, with peppery earthy and woody aromas. As soon as the wrapper burns, a sweet creaminess with nutmeg, chocolate and dried fruit develops. Sweetness, spice, sharpness and bitter tones deliver an exciting match.

#21 Oscar Valladares The Oscar Habano Winter Edition

CJ_Top25_badge_2019_No21In its small format, this winter edition is intended for cigar lovers who, in the colder temperatures have shorter amounts of time and fewer places to enjoy their cigars. The Habano Winter Edition by Oscar Valladares was launched in November 2018. It is characterized by having the same blend as the already known format. The wrapper is from Ecuador, the binder is from Honduras, and the filler is a combination of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The edition is available in 11-count boxes made from untreated wood, which are designed to look like cigar molds. And, rather than being wrapped in cellophane, the cigars are individually wrapped in a candela leaf.

Tasting notes:
Sweetish, bitter and salty, everything in a Petit Corona. It draws perfectly, burns flawlessly, and offers earthy, woody and toasted aromas with pepper, sweetness and a meaty flavor. Leather, coffee beans and BBQ are also present.

#22 La Galera 1936 Torpedo Cortador

CJ_Top25_badge_2019_No22The La Galera line achieved Tabacalera Palma flagship status a long time ago. The family company is run in its fourth generation by master blender José “Jochi” Blanco. The intention in the development of the 1936 series was to create a substantive cigar that was not weighed down by its strength. “Galera” is the name for the room in a cigar factory where the torcedores roll the cigars. The line has been successful on the market since 2018 and comes in a total of six formats in 21-count boxes. The Cortador format is a box-pressed Torpedo.

Tasting notes:
This cigar develops lush oriental spices and herbal aromas as well as woody and leather aromas. A bitter-sweet taste with a fine mint freshness, coffee and roasted aromas, and a pinch of pepper are in the creamy smoke.

#23 OneOff Corona Gorda

CJ_Top25_badge_2019_No23The brand OneOff was originally developed and launched at the beginning of 2000 by Andrea Molinari from Milan, Italy. Even back then, the line was a boutique brand with that special something. The simple band with the peace symbol was extraordinary for that time. Following several changes of owners and distributors, the brand by Dion Giolito (Illusione) was then reissued in 2017. At that time already a puro, today the line is still made from 100%Nicaraguan tobaccos at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. In addition to the Corona Gorda passionados can choose from seven other formats. Except for the +53 Super Robusto, the cigars are sold in 10-count boxes.

Tasting notes:
This cigar tastes like a sweetish brioche with a delicate fruity and peppery note. A touch of cinnamon sweetness, nutty aromas (nutmeg) and gingerbread follow. A gentle acidity, some bitter notes and spice are in the creamy smoke.

#24 | Aladino Corojo Reserva

CJ_Top25_badge_2019_No24The second cigar in our top-25 list of 2019 is a Honduran puro by JRE Tobacco, made exclusively from Corojo

tobacco. This is a family business that was founded by the legendary Julio R. Eiroa and his son, Justo M. Eiroa. The company is vertically integrated and, of course, produces on their own tobacco fields, which primarily became well-known for their excellent Corojo tobacco. For many years, Justo M. Eiroa was a successful manager in the United States before returning to the tobacco industry in 2015, and now cultivates tobacco in the Jamastran valley and produces cigars. The three brands created by JRE Tobacco are the Aladino, Rancho Luna, and the Tatascan.

Tasting notes:
The tart tones and the strong smoky note in the first half balance out this Robusto with chocolatey sweetness. In the second half, the cigar presents nutty aromas, herbal spice, and licorice. It tapers off super creamy and harmoniously.

#25 | Cavalier Genève White Series Lancero

CJ_Top25_badge_2019_No25The Swiss Sébastien Decoppet attracted attention with his brand Cavalier Genève. In the meantime, he lives in

Dallas, USA, where last year he started his own distribution. In summer he presented two cigars that are both produced in small quantities: a White Series Salomones and a White Series Lancero. These are not limited editions but cigars that are produced yearly in small batches. The Lancero delighted our testers. It is available in boxes of 20. The cigar costs USD 10.00 or CHF 11.90 and is thus very affordable. There are three series of the brand: the White Series, the Black Series (only the US), and the Black II.

Tasting notes:
The sweetness and the peppery kick of this the cigar jostle nicely with each other. Cedary aromas, fruity notes, leather, coffee and chocolate also gradually come into play. Superbly manufactured.
