Cigar Aficionado: Top 25 of 2017

CA started revealing their list of top 25 cigars of 2017. They are going in some weird order, as they revealed 10, 9 and 8 today (1st day of reveals)

#10 • 2017 • Villiger La Flor de Ynclan Robusto
#9 • 2017 • Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V
#8 • 2017 • Guardian Of The Farm Apollo Selecciσn de Warped

I cant comment on nay of these, but it will be interesting to see how rest stack up, and if fine folks of Puff agree/disagree with this list.

Will be interesting to see if any Cigars make they top 25 that don't buy ad space. Don't get Cigar Aficonado, but occasionally see it when I getting the car washed.

Heard good things about the Plasencia so I just picked up 5 of them. Also grabbed 5 of the Villiger.

They always include a few Habanos in the list and they dont buy ad space. However most of their monthly reviews are from manufacturers that do, and since you have to rate well on a monthly review to be eligible for the top 25 list it ends up being mostly advertisers. That's still a pretty good cross section of the most popular brands so it's fun to see what makes the cut and try some of them.

Nice to see Warped in the top ten. Apollo was a fine cigar! Wish I had more of those.

Now I leaned something. Did sign up for a Free Cigar Aficonado thing, so I will be getting the magazine next year.

Well I'll be a bug on a windshield! AB Tempus Natural made the 5th spot. Damn, now one of my favorite budget smokes are gonna cost me more to get. Time to stock up I guess. I may not put a whole lot of stock in what CA says, but there's a ton of people who do.

I thought The Judge was a great cigar. Expecting to see CAO somewhere in the top 5. I'm thinking Bolivar will take 1st.
