Your early nominations for the FOH 2021 top 10 cigars?


Recommended Posts

Have not dug into enough 20/21 stock to have much shine above quality Cuban stock other than the Regios and the Trin coloniales. 
I’m still mostly stuck in 2018 and a bit of 19.

2020/21 stock only for me would be:

Trinidad Coloniales

Trinidad Esmeralda 

BBF

Monte 2 (hit or miss but the hit was very good) 

Siglo III

Hoyo de Monterey Double Corona (75% of these were memorable, 25% were too young.) 

Siglo II

Not too many but standouts have been:
Monte 2 and Edmundo
Fonseca1 (interested to compare to the '14s that were recently on offer)
RASS
Dip 2
RyJ Churchill
Shorts, Regalias, Punch 48 all pretty good too but the above are in the next league up.

I found recent E2 to be very interesting. I don't know about you but I couldn't tell the difference between the E2s I smoked and Connie A. Seems they really mellowed out these E2. Certainly not bland but they certainly don't have any kind of kick anymore.

Maaaaaaaan get outta heaaaaaaa!!! E2 are too damn good ………perhaps you are specifically referencing newer stock? …..19s have been phenomenal and still being medium -medium full in flavor to me ….the Connie A comment is out of line sir ! Lol

Yes, they were 20s from 24:24 in June. They were nice, don't get me wrong, but very smooth. Usually E2s have a little paprika kick and these, none. And they burned super fast. I went outside with one preparing for a 2-hr smoke and it came in about 1:20.

I can totally see that ….I’ve experienced all of the above

Pretty lucky to get 20/21 SW, Fundys and Esplendidos. Wow. 

They all would probably have been on my list too if I had been able to find any...:wink2:
