Sometimes the day gets away from you but in my case, its more like the week got away from me. Actually, the last two weeks have just been busy with very few moments to come up for air. So since a video review wasn’t possible I decided to borrow a page from Walt’s arsenal of topics and have my own Ask The Readers post.
Here we are, closing in on Thanksgiving and even more scary, 35 days till Christmas. Along side my Christmas shopping list is my list of Top 10 Cigars for 2009. I got an early start this year. I can’t remember any previous year where I recall smoking so many great cigars. The problem is, at this point, my Top 10 list is more around 20. Sure I could take the easy way out of this problem and just make it a Top 20 list but the best thing about any Top 10 list is the debate that ensues. The cigar community still discusses whether the Casa Magna was a deserving choice?
So Don “Cruz”ado wants to know:
How much does price, availability and exclusivity play a part? Does a cigar get more points for being affordable? Does a cigar get dinged if its only available at certain retailers (MX3 at Drapers or Man O’War Ruination at CI) and not a national release? Does being a limited edition cigar, like the Davidoff Colorado Claro or the Padron 40 Years or even The Drac and Boris help or hurt?
