Big Scoring Highly Rated Cigars
Over the last few months a large number of our cigars have scored extremely well in both Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Journal magazines. Now we all know that scoring things can be quite subjective however, whilst not everyone may agree with the actual scoring, at least it gives a general overview of the quality of each of the cigars listed. We have selected several cigars below which we feel merit wider recognition with our customers. Whilst not every cigar will suit every individual, at least we know they are extremely good!
My Father 'Le Bijou 1922' Torpedo - 97 Points Cigar Aficionado Dec 2015 - CIGAR OF THE YEAR
This is it, the top rated cigar and the current cigar of the year! Big, full bodied and robust so not for the faint hearted!
Ramon Allones Specially Selected (Cuba) - 96 points Cigar Aficionado Jan 2016
One of the smaller producers in Cuba, Ramon Allones have been a mainstay in our range for several years now, purely because the quality is astounding. These are big and bold in style and would suit those of us in search of something different to the likes of Bolivar or Partagas.
Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure No.2 (Cuba) - 94 points Cigar Aficionado Jan 2016
Another stunning example of Cuban cigar production. These are at the opposing end of the flavour spectrum to Ramon Allones, being much lighter and more creamy with a white pepper note on the finish.
Cohiba Siglo VI Tubed (Cuba) - 92 Points Cigar Aficionado Jan 2016
Launched in 2002 this is the newest of the Siglo range. Very rich, full of creamy, earthy grassy flavours with subtle hints of cocoa/coffee bean.
Dunhill Heritage selection Robusto (Honduras) - 93 Points Cigar Aficionado Jan 2016
New From Dunhill, but already making a huge splash because it is not your typical, average, every day Dunhill. This is bigger and slightly more full bodied than most Dunhill's and yet still undeniably from the same stable...
Romeo Et Julieta Anajados Piramides (Cuba) - 92 Points Cigar Aficionado Jan 2016
My personal 2nd Favourite cigar of 2015. These were boxed aged in Cuba for 7 years plus before release here in the UK, which has given them maturity and developed their complexity. Stunning.
Joya De Nicaragua - Red Robusto (Nicaragua) 90 Points Cigar Aficionado Jan 2016
Those of you who attended our launch evening for the Joya De Nicaragua cigars with Juan Martinez last summer will know how good these are. These medium bodied beauties are quite commercial in style, but are still a bloody good smoke.
