You nailed it!

Lol, in fairness I think probably 1/2 the folks here might’ve been able to call this one once it was down to the final 2. I may not have the palate to pinpoint cigars in a blind tasting (congrats to you again btw ;), but I can follow along at home with whats firing on all cylinders per Prez & company’s posts.   
 

I blind guessed in another thread the PSD4 would be #1, but missed that by a few notches. Now where’s my darn $$ Vouchers Rob!?! ;)

Regio getting some good love. Well deserved from my vantage point. 

Agreed - just wish I could find a box these days. Even the places I got singles from seem to have dried up.

@El Presidente thx for the list.  How big is the gap between 20 & 21 CoRo?  A skeeter’s pecker? Totally agree on the P2s too. 

2020 would have to be included.  Really we are only 6 months into 2021.  Haven't seen a lot of November/2021 boxes!  Cigars seen in 2021 would most likely be June/2020 thru June/2021 box dates.

Not much but as a "from the hip" response, they only got better.

Any real dogs or disappointments this year?

I reckon HSA put out somewhere between 25-40% of normal annual hand rolled volume. Tabacuba wasn't  rushed. Plenty of quality tobacco available, plenty of time. 

Real dogs? No. 

Some average batches of PLPC, R&J SC/WC, Dip 2/ HDM Elegantes/ Epi 1 (plenty of great ones as well)/HDM PR/Boli Libs

I was pretty disappointed with the R&J SC and Diplo 2's (July 2020 box dt on the Diplos) I got. Letting them sit a while longer to see if that improves things.

Such a great list!  Really happy to see ERDM and SLR get such excellent ratings.  Im currently sitting on a Feb '21 box of ERDM CS & a September '20 box of SLR Regios that I've yet to sample from, but both of these boxes are works of art to behold...Flawless & Oily wrappers, wonderful aroma, cigars feel like they're packed perfectly with no tight spots or underfilled sticks.  Personally, I would have picked Siglo IV over II though...The IV's have been otherworldly levels of great.  

Also, Has anyone sampled any '21 CoRo from the box code BLT?  The cigars look gorgeous, and the cold aroma reminds me of Strawberry fruit roll-ups candy (fruit "leather" candy popular in the US for those unfamiliar).  If anyone has tried CoRo from that BLT code, I'd truly appreciate feedback on your experience.

surprised not to see the ELDM Tainos in the listing. That's been a top 5 cigar for me. 

didn't quite see the 3 mastercase requirement.

May have to dip into my 2021 PSP2s now! Great and informative list.

They're delicious.

Happy to say I have around 130 cigars that comprise most of what's on this list! I'm missing  7 out of the 26. Not bad for a newbie to collecting.
