Regular Production Cigar of the Year R&J Wide Churchill . Can't believe it, smoked so many over multiple box codes. Ginger chocolate and a little spice, wrapper and construction just delightful

Your Most Improved. Easy , a double whammy for the R&J Wide Churchill. I had given up on them . Many thanks to Nick Russell from Cigar Social Perth for putting me back on course. A standout from R&J with a host of passengers aboard that ship for me.

i couldnt agree more on the wide churchill...i couldve easily put them in those two slots as well........you see a few folks here and there mention these in the same vein, but theyre largely overlooked

 

@mprach024  good call on the epi 1

Your Regular Production Cigar of the Year    (2017 - 2020 production). 

  • Cohiba Robusto. After a shaky 16/early 17, these came raging back to life in late 17/18/19. Some of the prettiest wrappers I've ever seen (especially Summer 19 El Laguito examples). Despite the price, I'm constantly blown away by the consistency of the creamy tones juxtaposed with the silent power of these. Only Cuba can roll this magic.

Your Specialty Production Cigar of the Year   (2017 - 2020 production). 

  • La Gloria Cubana Orgullosos. What dreams & unicorn tears are made of, all wrapped in the glorious 109 format.

 

Your Best New Release  (2019/2020 production )

  • No notable cigars, IMO. Honorable (bending the rules) mention, Trinidad La Trova. While technically a late 17 release, this gave the marca a big dog vitola & are so fun to smoke. 18/19 examples have been gorgeous.

 

Your Most Improved (2017 - 2020 production)

  • Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 1. The 18/19s have blown me away (particularly La Corona boxes), and I'm a believer now...can't stop smoking them. Coronas Gordas for life.

Your Mr. Dependable Award (2017-2020 production) 

  • Por Larranga Petite Coronas. As as I always say, you can't have too many cabs of these. Dense young, and ages as good as any CC at any price. Caramel dreams.

Because I posted my cigar selections in the same bold font?  Not sure what you mean

Fascinating thread for sure. While I have been smoking 5 or so a week since the pandemic hit, I don’t know that I have covered enough ground over the past several years to make a meaningful comment. One observation for me is that components outside of the cigar can influence the experience everything from the desire/expectations to food/weather etc.  
 

With that said, what do I instinctively grab when I’m undecided for a cigar I know I will enjoy (Mr Reliable). It’s a crowded field : BBF; BPC, JL2, MAG46, Epi 1. I just don’t know if I will ever have enough of these in my collection. 
 

And for those 30 min breaks, I have a box of 17 RASC that are on fire. 
 

While there are a few notable absences given high market demand here and elsewhere, I was interested to note the lack/limited of Quai D 50 call outs. Just ordered my first box so I may soon find out ?

Agreed on the QD50. I thought I was lucky to grab a 10 box a few months ago given the hype, but on 24:24 just 2 days ago they did not sell out at all, even with a 2 box deal. Maybe the dust has settled, so to speak

They’re just not that good to be totally honest
