Maxwell: #11 Casa Fernandez Aganrosa Leaf Maduro Ilustre

And here are the picks for number 9:
David’s Number 9: Tatuaje CiGWAR – Originally I sought out this cigar based upon the intrinsic value rather than the flavor or production quality of them. My initial review, while positive, did not express how well these cigars have aged over the past few months, maturing into a cigar I am happy to see being brought back for a second run. Not something I would go out and drop the kids college fund on, but damn is it a great smoke. Click here for the full review.
Brandon’s Number 9: Maya Selva Flor de Selva- This cigar brings the milder preference of the European palate with the flavors that will stand up to any American smoker’s tastes. The Flor de Selva offers some spice mixed with woody notes to make a great showing for a company breaking out in the U.S. Click here for the full review.
Maxwell’s Number 9: Alec Bradley Fine & Rare Ta-25A- As Alec Bradley continues to grow and expand their brand, it is great to see them focusing so much on their blends. The Fine & Rare is a prime example of dedication to perfecting a blend and this years was my favorite Fine & Rare release to date. The balance and complexity were there, I only wish it had a bit more body to it so that the flavors could really shine. In all, it was a fantastic cigar and I anticipate continuing to enjoy them for years to come. Click here for the full review.
