Anyone else notice Padron, Fuente, Ashton, Patel were in the top 10; 2014, & 2015.

They only select cigars for this list from the cigars they have had in their reviews during the year. So many good cigars don't get reviewed.

Right, there's all this discussion about buying your way in to the top 25, but I want to believe they are doing this list through blind tests for the most part like they say. However, you have to know that the cigars they are choosing to review throughout the year are going to come from the companies advertising with them, so there's going to be a greater percentage in the running than others.

So we are currently smoking the Le Bijou in Churchill. Terrible burn issues. Jim's has gone out 3 times and mine has gone out twice. Constant burn difference of about 3/4" from one side of the cigar to the other. That makes 7 for 7 of these that has done this.

Tasty cigar, but annoying as crap.

I've read multiple times that the cigars aren't smoked in their entirety btw. Also, blind or not, how hard is it to tell a padron with its single cap and box press, or a CAO Flathead when nothing else looks like that shape? This list is annoying, I actually thought they were gonna turn it around, considering last years list wasn't all that bad. (of course small botiques get unnoticed, unfortunately)
