25. Azul y Oro ‘22 LE by Crowned Heads (Note: I swapped the cigar in and out of my top 25 numerous times. The cigar whose spot it took was ironically by Crowned Heads as well. (26.) SFUMATO IN C MAJOR PCA EXCLUSIVE! A winner in every aspect. It actually bumped another Crowned Heads distributed cigar off the list before Azul y Oro took its spot. That was the (27.) OFC Bosphorus.

My top 25 list was made up out of 10 houses. I smoke so many cigars by so many brands daily that just don’t match up against what I selected. My consumers are not complaining.


* They were not available for sale in 2022 so they do not qualify. Two cigars that completely blew me away were the (28.) SP 1014 Black, blended by Eladio Diaz, and the (29.) SP 1014 GREY (Pre-Release) Both cigars are distributed by Sanj Patel.

*Also the (30.)lost & found box press could have easily gone on my list but didn’t. It was a very small production. I did not put shop exclusives, or Uber limited products on my list.

Most Gangster Launch

(31.) Knuckle Sandwich Erik Espinosa Espinosa Cigars

“Great for the Industry”

Best Cigar not on my list was

(32.) SuperEgo by Freud (Blended by Wiber Ventura). It did not make my list because of the criteria. I didn’t smoke it live.
