This list is quite short as I have been limited in my ability to try many cigars this year.
Alec Bradley American Classic Robusto $5.45 Connecticut Wrapper
This is a nod to the great American Cigars of Yesteryear that were mass produced in Florida. Notably, this reminds me of a higher quality version of my beloved Tampa Nuggets which are no longer produced. This is an exceptionally mild cigar and is recommended for anyone wishing to experience what working men smoked in America during the 20th century. Note, different sizes of the same cigar have proven bland and disappointing.
Montecristo Classic Toro $11.55 Connecticut Wrapper
The name means "Mount of Christ". So what's not to like. This is a mild and creamy cigar. I originally tried it in a sampler and enjoyed it so much that I ordered another one to smoke when my son was finally born. In the picture of me to the right, I enjoying the Montecristo Classic after my baby was finally born after my wife spent more than 20 hours in labor. It was about 6 in the morning when I lit this bad boy up.
Perdomo Champagne Noir Epicure (Toro) $8.00 Maduro Wrapper
This was the most flavorful cigar I smoked this year. It was sweet and nutty. Bold, but not overwhelming.
