Top 25 of 2016

Anybody check out Cig Aficionado's Top 25? Gotta say, I'm not the least bit surprised with this list.

Such a...bleh.

Maybe it's like becoming one with the cigar. You lose yourself in it; everything fades away: your worries, your problems, your thoughts. They fade into the smoke, and the cigar and you are at peace. - Raul Julia

Always a source of contemplation and conversation. These lists are mostly ridiculous to me as I have no idea, for the most part, how they could pick the sticks they do. Oh well, to each their own.

That's always my initial reaction about half each list's contents. The problem I never get over though is that I have not reviewed each of those cigars. Hell, I'm lucky if I've smoked the entire CA list come wintertime. I tend to lend a little credence judging by the fact that those I have reviewed often come up way short of their praise.

LFD for number 1 seems odd to me, but the rest of top 10 seemed legit

I haven't had the Andolusian Bull but I'm not surprised they would be held in such high esteem. The Gomez folk have been progressive in their methods, blends and marketing. It was only a matter of time before they were paid their due.

I see Ian's duplicated but no others.

Ark had one elsewhere. As did Mike, I believe.

Yeah, the duplicate thing seems to be a tapacrap-wide thing.

What a horse-shit list. Are you telling me that the RP cigar is better than something else out on the market ? What a punch in the dick these guys are inflicting on themselves. No wonder their subscription numbers have been dropping. After Suckling left, I think they lost a bunch of respect and valuable opinion. Not to say that Suckling was anything but a high-value cigar snob *coughonlycohibacough*.

The Mundial is for New Years. The Perdomo is for a party this Saturday (not many seasoned smokers, decided to go with something tried and true).
