"I was a little unsure when I started smoking this since it was so grassy at the beginning. That quickly dropped to the wayside and I was left with a rich creamy cigar. If you like smoking something an old-timey villain would pick some of these up. It is a classic tobacco-forward profile that performs great. " -Alan (Eulogy)
"I want to smoke another one of these refined, delicious cigars immediately. I’m so curious to see if the flavor profile is consistent amongst other samples because if they are - it is without a singular doubt box-purchase worthy. Seek this excellent cigar out immediately before I buy them all!" -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)

Each of our panelists were given 10 votes to towards our Top 25 Cigars of the Year - 2018. As with previous years, the order of their votes mattered as their #1 vote is worth twice as much as their #10. Our list is made up of cigars that had a wide release this year. The cigars that are eligible do not have to have been reviewed on Blind Man's Puff, but the reviewer must have smoke it at some point to vote for it.

"Overall, this cigar was very consistent in terms of flavor. A few burn issues tended to rear their heads a few times during this session, requiring multiple touchups as it liked to spoon. If you enjoy medium to full-bodied notes of leather, cream, oak, and pepper, this cigar will be right up your alley. I did enjoy this sample; however I would like a non-linear experience…" -John A. (Bostoneo)
"Eh, this cigar wasn't really for me. It wasn't bad, but it's was kind of boring, Gave me typical flavors of wood, cinnamon, and white pepper. The strength was a medium at best. If given to me I would smoke again, but wouldn't actively seek this one out." -Mickey T. (irratebass)
This cigar while the first two thirds had a similar profile this for sure wasn't a bad thing. Enjoyed this cigar from beginning to end and always happy for that next puff. I have smoked plenty of the Julius Caesar in other sizes and have to say this perfecto was a treat. If you have a Diamond Crown lounge near you pick one up!
This cigar was so much better after a couple months of rest. When I first smoked it, I knew it was good, but not as special as I hoped. This time it was special. This 20th Anniversary Opus is nothing like the regular opus. It is medium bodied and nuanced, not in your face strength. The construction was almost perfect and the flavors were balanced. I only look forward to how this will age years on. Definitely recommend if you can find them.
