Alec Bradley Cigar Co. has announced that they bringing back their proprietary triangular shaped Trilogy line of cigars in very limited quantities. Alan Rubin came up with the idea for Trilogy during a fishing trip with some other cigar manufacturers. The topic of cigar shapes came up and one of the others told Rubin that he just cannot come out with another round cigar. Rubin took the statement to heart and started brainstorming until he made his way to a South Florida Home Depot, where he created the triangular mold.

Drew Estate Herrera Esteli Miami Piramide Fino
"I liked this cigar and wanted to like it a whole lot more except for the burn issues and the falling off of flavors in the last third. I liked the look of it and the notes of leather, coffee, and salt are definitely flavor notes that I thoroughly enjoy. I’d definitely revisit this cigar again and might enjoy it with a mild Bloody Mary as I think it would enhance the flavors." -Diana (ArmyRN)

La Gloria Cubana Spirit of the Lady Toro - Blind Cigar Review
"An earthy, slightly coffee flavored Maduro but very one-note. It became quite harsh likely due to the need to relight so many times. The construction and burn were very lacking. At a budget stick price, this would not be an awful choice but at a higher price point, the construction would make this an absolute no-buy for me." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
Drew Estate has announced that their Liga Privada Unico Serie Papas Fritas will now come in 25-count boxes starting in August. Previously they came in boxes of 50. Liga Privada Unico Serie Papas Fritas measure (115 x 44) and have been around since 2012. The idea behind Papas Fritas was to make a more affordable Liga Privada using mixed filler tobacco.

Top 25 Cigars of the Year – 2020
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.
