New cigars purchased this year 2016

I have had many new (to me) cigars this year, here is my list:

From cigarking.com
La Palina Classic Toro - meh, mild and boring
My Father La Antiguedad Corona Grande - good, but not really to my tast though
Caldwell The King is Dead Diamond Girl - very good, box worthy
Caldwell Long Live the King The Heater - good, I like other Caldwells better
Caldwell Eastern Standard Euro Express - good, I like other Caldwells better
Cubanacan Maduro Chatos - meh, though some were pretty good, very inconsistent, had the potential of being a really good value cigar IMO

From smallbatchcigar.com
Caldwell Eastern Standard Marble House - excellent, a favorite
Sobremesa Cervantes Fino - good, but not to my taste
Warped Corto X50 - very good, box worthy
Caldwell Eastern Standard Silk Road - good, but I like other Caldwells better
La Imperiosa Corona Gorda - good, but not to my taste
Warped Flor del Valle Cristales - excellent, a favorite
Warped La Colmena Amado No. 44 - had potential to be a great cigar, but all 5 samples had a hard to impossible draw
Warped Corto X46 - very good, box worthy
Warped Flor del Valle Gran Valle - good, but I like other Warped cigars better
Chogui Dos77 Longsdale - very good, box worthy
Warped Maestro del Tiempo 5205, very good, box worthy
Caldwell Eastern Standard Midnight Express Corona - very good, a favorite
Caldwell Signature Corona - good mild cigar, not to my taste
Casa Fernandez Guardian of the Farm Apollo Seleccion de Warped - excellent, a favorite
La Flor Dominicana La Nox Petit Corona - was really looking forward to this one, meh
Casa Fernandez Miami Aniversario 2015 Lancero - first one was ok, second one was good, will need to revisit after some more humidor time
Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf Tabsa Aficion No. 2 - it was ok, straightforward tobacco flavor with some bitterness
Illusione Singulare Kadosh - another one I was really looking forward to, meh, bland
Warped El Oso Papa - looking forward to trying this one, will report back
HR Claro Rothschild - looking forward to trying this one, will report back
HR Corona - really looking forward to trying this one considering how good the Robusto is
Warped La Colmena Reina - looking forward to trying this one, will report back
Chogui Papa Chogui Corona Gorda - looking forward to trying this one, will report back
Warped Villa Sombra Mojitos - ok, wouldn't buy again
Warped La Hacienda Superiores - good, but the Flor del Valle Cristales are SO much better
Warped Maestro del Tiempo 6102R LE - good, but the 5205 is much better
Cornelius Corona Gorda - ok, not to my taste

From coronacigar.com
Warped Flor del Valle Sky Flower - excellent, a favorite
Warped La Colmena Lirio Rojo - very good, but I like other Warped cigars better
Warped Flor del Valle Sky Flower Exclusivo - very disappointed with this one considering how good the original Sky Flower is and the price, meh

From smokeinn.com
La Palina Illumunation Colonial - good, but I like the El Diario KBII better, actually tastes similar
Mi Querida Fino Larga - very good
Sobremesa Short Churchill - excellent, a favorite

From atlanticcigar.com
La Palina Nicaragua Oscuro Toro - looking forward to trying this one, will report back
La Palina El Ano 1896 Oscuro Toro - looking forward to trying this one, will report back
La Palina Nicaragua Connecticut Toro - nice mild cigar, medium body/flavors, good morning smoke
Casa Fernandez Sabor Aganorsa Corona Corojo - nice medium cigar, good morning smoke
Casa Fernandez Sabor Aganorsa Corona Maduro - looking forward to trying this one, will report back

I know that I've had a few others from B&Ms that I can't remember other than these:
Davidoff Nicaragua Escurio Robusto Tubo - this should have been an excellent cigar especially considering the price, very disappointed in how bland it was
Davidoff Puro d'Oro Deliciosos and Notables - see above
Davidoff Winston Churchill Petit Corona - good, not to my taste, surprised because of how much I enjoyed the original Winston Churchills from several years ago

Very nice to see several manufacturers putting out corona/Lonsdale category sizes these days. As you can see, I am a sucker for any corona size cigar (corona, petit corona, corona gorda, Lonsdale, etc.)

Happy new year all!
