Hello My friends. Nick Libretti here for JRCigars.com. Time for another outstanding at top five video. Today, we are going to count down literally to the new year. New year, new me baby. So let’s go and see what cigars we put together for this top five. These are the top five best cigars for the new year.
My Father No. 5 Toro
Five. Here we have the My Father in the number five size. The original My Father uses that Habano Rosado wrapper, very zesty, very oily, handcrafted by Jaime Garcia for his Father and memory of… Not in memory, more in tribute to his Father Pepin. Really got the ball rolling with My Father. I mean this is now the name of their factory. It really took off. I mean, they were very well known for Tatuaje and the Don Pepin classic blends, but it was his first My Father blend that really showcased them in a higher light and just like shot him up to star status. A very bold, thicker ring gauge. You’re going to get a little more strength out of it, but top-notch cigar right here.
Espinosa Crema No. 4 Robusto
Four. Here we have the Espinosa Crema. I mean, Eric Espinosa, I mean he’s a smooth guy as it is. Now imagine he’s making a nice mellow to a medium flavorful cigar with that nice lighter shade wrapper. I mean cream is not even the right word to describe it. Ultra creamy, super smooth and creamy. Some nice dashes of vanilla, little spice in there as well. Very well rounded. I mean that’s honestly one of the best looking wrappers I’ve ever seen. That thing just looks stunning. Really kind of blends in well with that cream-colored wrapper. I mean, he’s an artist. He’s an artist in a leather jacket. It’s really all I got to say. Fantastic.
Davidoff Grand Cru Series No. 3
Three. Here we have the Davidoff Grand Cru in the number three size. Now don’t let the size of the cigar fool you. Packs a lot of flavors, and because of the age and those tobaccos and the quality which it’s rolled, it’s going to last you a long time. You’re still looking at a half-hour, 45 minutes here. Even in this small kind of petite Corona size. Very smooth. I mean, it’s a Davidoff. It’s the height of luxury in cigar format. I love this one. It’s actually a great any time of day choice for Davidoff. I mean, some like the Escurio, the Nicaragua you really want after a heavy meal or more towards the evening time. This one works just as well in the morning.
Padron 1926 Series No. 2 Belicoso Maduro
Two. Here is the Padron 1926 number two. Very little I need to say about this. In fact, 1926 was just named the number two Cigar of the Year by Cigar Aficionado as well. What are the odds of that? Pretty good. Fantastic. This is the top of the line, Nicaraguan cigar. One of my all-time favorites, and a great way to bring in the new year.
Le Careme by Crowned Heads Hermoso No. 1
One. And finally, we have the Le Careme from Jon Huber and the crew over at Crowned Heads. I mean it’s named after like a creamy dessert chef. The chef’s hat is a thing. Talk about a smooth, sweet smoke. Very highly rated. That Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. One of the subtlest Connecticut Broadleafs I’ve smoked, and I’ve smoked them all. Really smooth and creamy emphasizes more of those creamy, sweet notes than the bold and rich you see on a lot of other ones. Very well balanced, solid medium body. And one of my favorite regular production releases from the Crowned Heads.
My friends, very limited pack we have of these, but I think it’s going to be an awesome way for you to enjoy your new year. I mean, as I said, new year, new you, new me. So let’s shed off the old, in with the new, and old lang syne and whatever that whole song is. And champagne and hats and then pigs in a blanket and Ryan Seacrest. And he’s right over there.
