Binny’s Top 25 Cigars of 2011 Part One: 25-16

2011 had to be the most difficult year in choosing our top 25 cigars. With so much great tobacco in today’s market and so many wonderful cigars compiled with that great leaf, we could have easily compiled a top 50. While I would easily smoke each and every cigar chosen to take spot on this list, the top honor went to a cigar that really stood out from the rest… but more on that one later.

 

We’re going to introduce these cigars in chunks. First up are our cigars 25-16. In our opinion, these represent the finest of the year. Be sure to let us know what you think of our choices below in the comments section!
