94 rated cigars represent outstanding quality in both flavor and construction. You can even find Cigar Aficionado #1 Cigar of the Year winners in this category, like the Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Eye of the Shark (2017), and the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Maestro Torpedo (2019).
94 rated cigars represent a special experience and are good enough to be considered masterpieces. Several of them probably belong on the top 25 cigars of the modern era as well. They usually incorporate exquisite tobacco, flawless construction, and soulful blending carefully attuned to suit a master’s palate. That’s one of the hidden reasons that 94 rated cigars are so fantastic. It’s easy enough to spot a beautiful, well-rolled cigar, but it’s harder to see the work at the blending table that went into making it.
Countless puritos (single leaf sample rolls) are smoked and considered, countless experimental blends tried and discarded, and many cigars are rolled that ultimately miss the mark. Even as major components of a blend are identified, there’s still fine-tuning to do overtime, and each harvest presents new opportunities and challenges. Producing 94 rated cigars only occurs when everything lines up properly.
Other examples of 94 rated cigars include the Warped Series Gran Reserva 1988, the Padrón 1926 Anniversary No. 2 Natural, and the legendary Drew Estate Liga Privada No. 9. Arturo Fuente in particular has produced a large number of 94 rated cigars, like the Hemingway Work of Art, the OpusX Perfecxion, and the Rosado Sungrown Magnum R Vitola 44. Padron has seen similar success in this category, and you’ll also find cigars from Ashton, Rocky Patel, Oliva, and more. If it’s here, it’s a fine cigar – standing solidly above the crowd as a cigar that wasn’t just the best in a given year, but that could go head to head with smokes from other years as well.
