Top 10 Cigars 2010

January 11, 2011 · Posted in The Perfect Draw 

As I sit here earnestly smoking an Arturo Fuente Short Story I realize that now is the time to do another Top 10. It was just a year ago when I published my first Top 10 and much has changed in the world. Instead of getting philosophical and patter on about this or that I’m just going to present the list (you of course know that these lists don’t matter, right?).

10. Carlos Torano Casa Torano Toro

This is the only mild cigar that makes this list but it does make this list because the grassy and oak flavors are very good.

9. Nestor Miranda Collection Dominicano Robusto Grande Rosado

Medium-full bodied treat with a whole host of flavors ranging from maple, earth, cream and so on.

8. CAO La Traviata Favorito

With this cigar you will get lots of flavor in the spice and leather mold. Full bodied and reasonably priced.

7. CAO Lx2 Rob

A full bodied cigar with some very good flavors ranging from spice to oak and some complexity.

6. Alec Bradley Family Blend T11

La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Maduro ChiselA delicious medium bodied smoke that delivers on flavor and complexity. The reason why it’s not closer to the top is because I have smoked more of these since I reviewed it last and my opinion of it has slackened off a bit.

5. Padilla Dominus Robusto

Oak and spice and everything nice. This is one of my favorite Padilla made smokes.

4. Guillermo León Gran Corona

Medium bodied cigar with loads of flavor and complexity. I love this cigar because it offers the right amount of wood and leather flavors without too much of a kick strength-wise.

3. Tatuaje Anarchy

Loads of spice and leather with some nuttiness acting in the background. Another awesome cigar that you must try (but you are going to have to act quick because this is only a limited edition cigar and once they’re out they’re out).

2. Camacho Coyolar Titan

Leather, meat and spice make up the flavors for this cigar. I love this cigar, an absolute must try.

1. La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel Maduro

Insanely good cigar. Tons of flavor and complexity. Fits right into what I like about a cigar: spice, leather and some sweetness.

There was an Opus X that scored extremely well, but since the Opus X line had a representative last year I decided to disqualify it for this year’s Top 10. As you can probably tell this is not an exhaustive list but this is what I liked for 2010.
