Here we go again. This year, I dropped the list to a round 20 just to keep things asymmetrical.

Thank you to all of the cigar companies out there that trusted me with their products, to all of you faithful readers who take what I say to your local brick-and-mortars, and to everyone that has anything to do with this fine industry.

Like last year, before we continue on to the list, I would like to preface it with the following disclaimer: These are the twenty best cigars that I smoked this year - not the 20 best released this year or the 20 best anywhere. This is a list of my opinions. Nothing more. This list is meant for your enjoyment - and to help me remember what I enjoyed smoking this year. Enjoy!
