You ask why I only list 15 cigars instead of the normal 25? Because my health issues throughout the year only allowed around 110 reviews. So, paring it down to only 15 made more sense.
I included some limited editions just because they were so damn good.
As in the past, I expect a lot of blowback from smokers because I included ‘too many’ boutique brands. (“WTF! I never heard of that cigar!”)
I feel strongly that the real pioneering comes from the outsider/upstart manufacturers that exhibit a lot more passion about their blends than the catalog brands.
