Alright, so I decided we needed a thread to represent the BOTL 2017 favorite cigars in an unbiased manor. We all have working palates and I'm sure we can remember one cigar that stood out in 2017 (I can remember several). This only works if we get a bunch of people participating!

How this will work:
  1. Try not to read anyone else's post before you reply (Keep yourself as unbiased as possible)
  2. List your 2017 favorite cigar and vitola (NC, CC, homeroll?)
  3. This cigar does NOT have to be a new release
  4. Try to leave the first line to just the cigar information, then you can write anything else (I liked it because...), this will help me with compiling the results at the end
  5. You only get one nomination
  6. This will run until New Year's Eve
