It may surprise you, but 93 rated cigars can still compete with the best cigars ever made. In fact, there are a number of #1 Cigar of the Year winners in this category. As you can imagine, cigar rating is not an exact science, and there is ample room for disagreement. If you don’t like Cameroon wrappers, for example, then the 97-rated Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Eye of the Shark probably won’t be anywhere near the top of your list. For that reason, we invite people to enjoy 93 rated cigars as the premium smokes that they are.
Keep an open mind. These cigars are fantastic, and your favorite cigar may indeed be among them. The E.P. Carillo Encore Majestic (Cigar of the Year from 2018) and the My Father Le Bijou 1922 (Cigar of the Year from 2015) were both 93 rated cigars in certain years, as was La Flor Dominicana’s Andalusian Bull (Cigar of the Year from 2016). Cigar ratings for particular blends can vary from year to year, and so no cigar can consistently stay the #1. Instead, particular brands typically can be found somewhere on the Top 25 Cigars of the Year list regularly, which is an impressive sign of consistently high quality in cigar making.
In the category of 93 rated cigars, you’ll find a number of very fine blends. These include L’Atelier La Mission 1959, Alec Bradley Project 40, and a wealth of cigars from Padrón, Arturo Fuente, Oliva, and My Father. There’s no formula for reaching this rating, other than using premium tobacco, impeccable construction, and a blend with exquisite flavor. Here you’ll find tobaccos from a variety of nations, including the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Brazil, Costa Rica, and more. Whether you enjoy the rich, earthy flavor of a Maduro or prefer a classic, natural leaf, you’ll find what you’re looking for here.
