Rate your vintages What are your thoughts? My list (top to bottom....bottom being worst) would be: 2005 1997 1998 2006 2004 2002 2001 2003 ** 2000* 1999* * subject to excessive plug rate and construction variation. ** subject to excessive underfilling There were exceptional and very disappointing cigars produced in every year. What we are looking for is an "in general" assessment.
