Greetings. It's that time of year again. :)  CA has completed their yearly list.  Time for ours.   I've selected a sampling of the most recent releases, minus the special humidors.  Those are too esoteric and hard to get.  The poll focuses on the regular, EL, Reserva, GR and various LCDH offerings. 

Criteria is as follows:

Please fill out the poll before it closes on Jan 2, 2020.  You can select multiple choices in the poll as well.

Sorry I can not help out as I have not tried or own any of the cigars on that list. 

NP. I've only had two on that list so far. And I won't be marking them down. :lol:  Got my hands on a Media Luna. I'll see if that changes things.

Is there even 1 member on this board that's tried all of those cigars? 

I'd be very surprised.  Trying them all is not a prerequisite though.  If you had any on there and they stood out. Mark it/them down.

Not voting as I have not had any of the new releases, but 2 things jump out when looking at this list. First is the Ramon Allones No.2!!! I am all over that... Second, 50/50 on over/under 50rg in the past 2 years for LEs.

Would be interesting to know how the sub 50rg LEs have done commercially, were they a success worldwide, and for FOH members.

If I've only had 1, it definitely stood out - as there was no crowd! :cigar:

Unlike last year when I had nothing on the list, I actually have 3 on this one. Not sure if that’s a sign of my collection maturing, or just irresponsible spending on my part this past year ?

Unsure of the conclusion to be drawn here, with so few experiences to go by, but I have to say Rio Seco was probably the tastiest of the 3, and certainly has the most potential for improvement with time. 

Now if regionals were included, which would water down the list even further, it would easily be Tainos Formosa for the win IMHO.

Voted for those I've had. None really blown away by.

The Propios and Prados have a chance for greatness. Prados have chance for a longer life.

Novedosos good but need more time to develop, at least based on 'early' release....look forward to try one from a box.

Interested to try a few of the others though don't spring for GR anymore.

Boli Soberanos for the damn win ??

I also love the Party Maduro vitolas for the coin.

How would you compare the Soberanos to the Libertador?

Honestly I think they are pretty damn close...I can't think of one descriptor I'd wouldn't use for both.

Just for shits & giggles I'll fire up both from the same year & smoke them side by side. If I live thru the experience, I'll post notes.

That would be great. I've had great Libertador and have been meaning to try a Soberano. Not sure if smoking them side by side is a smart choice though ?

Between Soberanos and Rio Secos. Seems about right for 24:24 availability and how fast they go. I bet Novedosos would be in the running if we've seen any of them.

You, good sir, have obviously not seen the seen the size of my mouth. Or feet for that matter. ?

Are you really on Maui? Where do you smoke, man! One of my favorite places, but it's so hard to find a place to enjoy a cigar!

i hate to derail the thread, but i feel exactly the same. smoked a cigar on the beach and all was good, but somewhere with drinks and comfy chairs would be nice.
