Top 25 Cigars of the Year 2021 No.25-20

This list is composed of my top 25 ranked cigars based on scores given, but as you’ll see many have similar scores so I ranked them in most enjoyable out of the bunch. I hope this list will bring some interest for you to try these out.

I always try to be as clear as possible in my reviews where I get the cigars from. And in this list of 25 only 2 cigars were gifted by manufacturers, the rest either I have bought, traded or got gifted to me by friends.

I also want to be clear, I in no way make any money (it costs me more) from doing reviews, this is purely from my passion for cigars. I don’t have any deals with brands to write good things to get stuff from them, no I am honest in what I think, if something doesn’t tickle my fancy I make sure the brands get my critique or opinion. If brands decide to send me stuff, it’s purely because they want to and not because they expect me to write about it.
