Welcome to our 2nd installment of Take 5 – a series aimed at bringing you short, unique perspectives on certain facets within the cigar and/or wine industries. As the name implies, each Take 5 segment is intended to be read/viewed in five minutes or less.
We had such a good time predicting Cigar Aficionado’s #1 Cigar of the Year (click here to read that crystal ball prediction) that we decided to keep our focus on the CA list. This time however, we turn our attention to those unannounced cigars ranked 11 thru 25.
For years there have been a number of rock solid cigars that capture the attention of cigar enthusiasts everywhere. Yet for some reason these great cigars seem to always go unnoticed by the industry’s most prestigious “Best Of” list.
Once again we use our trusty little crystal ball in an attempt to predict those cigars whose time has come. Cigars we feel are sure to land a spot on the coveted Cigar Aficionado Top 25. While there’s no way of knowing for sure which cigars will be chosen, we feel pretty good about the chances of these 5 cigars – enjoy!
