It’s that time of the year when we at Stogie Press start dripping out the candidates for our selection of the Top 25 Boutique cigars of the year. To be a candidate the cigar had to be released in 2017 and not a big box player. I know that can be controversial but that is what we do. What is big box? General, Altidas, Drew Estate, Villiger, etc.
We will, like in years past publish our Top Connecticut list in January and that covers all including the big box players.
So without further ado here are the first 5 candidates for the 2017 Top 25 Boutique Cigars.
Congratulations to these fine brands and stay tuned for more candidates throughout December and then check back at the stroke of midnight New Year’s Eve when we publish the complete list and rankings.
