JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Elegante - Blind Cigar Review
"This cigar was exactly what I needed right now. Lots of sweet creams and cedar notes to hold my attention while throwing in hints of cinnamon here and there to really keep me on my toes. It stayed right at a mild to medium in strength from beginning to end. I would definitely like to have more of these on hand, and I bet this would pair amazingly with your morning coffee.

Casa 1910 Cuchillo Parado - Blind Cigar Review
"I had low expectations for this one based on the appearance, aroma, and first third. The final two portions brought total redemption, however, and left me wanting to light another, and wanting to buy some for the future. This could easily be my morning cigar. I recommend it to everyone." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Montecristo Epic Vintage 12 Toro - Quick Cigar Review
This cigar was a great addition to the Epic line from Montecristo, maybe the best yet. I was a big fan of the Epic Craft Cured, a cigar that I thought went kind of under the radar. This is just as good as that or better. The flavors were harmonious and left me wanting more and more. I really dug the caramel sweetness combined with the on an off oak flavor. The burn and draw were perfect the whole time and just added to the great experience. I will be picking up some more of these for myself, I think you should too.

Every year we put together a list of our Top 25 Cigars of the Year. Our list is a bit different from some other lists, it is not simply a rehashing of our top scores from the year, or one person’s opinion. We gave each of our panelists 10 votes to cast how they please for what they enjoyed the most in 2020. The order of their votes matter, so their #1 pick is worth twice as much as #10. The cigars do not have to have been reviewed by Blind Man’s Puff, but the panelist must have smoked it.
