Man what a tough question...if forced to choose just one, I'll go with H Upmann #2

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

Ramon Allones Superiores - I'm with the previous poster that suggested the Superiores. I haven't had much experience with specialty production this year but if the Superiores counts, it gets my vote. Splendid RA signature profile with some very interesting complexities going on.

Your Best New Release  (2019/2020 production )

Haven't had any new releases although I would love to try the new RA!

Your Most Improved (2017 - 2020 production)

R&J Churchill - each one seems better than the last!

Por Larranaga Montecarlos - tasty treats when young, consistent performer and AFFORDABLE!

Love these, it's like someone has taken a PSP quality RGPC and Monte Especial and blended them together, the result is top drawer

Montecristo #2

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

Ramon Allones Superiores. These have all been good to me as well this year. My 18' La Trova's are good but got lighter as they aged. RAS has been great every time.

Your Best New Release  (2019/2020 production )

N/A - I have nothing new from this year. I didn't see the need.

Your Most Improved (2017 - 2020 production)

Montecristo #2. The one's that I had that where pre 2017 to the fresh 19' boxes I have been smoking have been way better. I'd say the biggest improvement is fuller body and not some so muted. I've been really enjoying these.

Your Mr. Dependable Award (2017-2020 production) 

Tie Juan Lopez No. 1 / RG Perlas -  99% of these two have been great this year.

- Trinidad Reyes (perhaps EPI 2 and Monte 2 could play here, I simply have smoked more Reyes lately so I have short memory bias if that’s a thing)

  • Monte #2.  I found the older ones boring, but my 2018-20 have been nice. 

think they are asking since last year, imo mote 2 and 5 along with pretty much everything have released has been on point since at lest 2018 maybe further back

I read it as improved over pre-2017. Anyway, I'm liking the Monte 2 (2018-2020) much more than I used to. Hence, most improved, imo.

I've never had the 5, but will give them a try.

I see you regularly sing praises of La Fuerza.  Having never had one, what do you like about it?  How would you describe it?

La Fuerza of the last 3 years has been everything great about San Cristobal. So true to the marca's DNA along with outstanding construction and remarkable consistency. It isn't the best cigar I had all year, but it is consistently almost the best, so it gets my best of the year. They always score a 93-95 for me. 

As far as profile, as I said, it's pure San Cristobal. Sweet molasses (lighter than El Principe), marshmallows and cream, milk chocolate. The 17s and 18s seem to be a little richer than the 19s unfortunately. The richer 17s & 18s were really getting up there around 95-96 points for me. 

Thanks for the detailed reply @NSXCIGAR

Knew it, shoulda jumped on the recent PSP boxes listed on 24:24??‍♂️

I almost put the HDM Rio Seco for cigar of the year, I was torn with Monte 2, but ultimately was a very close second for me.  Once I got over the size and enjoyed it for what it was, it’s quickly become one of my favorites in my humidor.
