Hot off the press

This is straight from the experts at ABC Liquor.


Here’s your quick list of the best cigars you should be buying this year. These are the cream of the crop, the ultimate smoke, the cigars you should be searching for—all chosen by your dedicated tobacconists.

H. Upmann Legacy Toro
Filler: Nicaragua and Dominican
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuador
Size: 6 x 24
Initial touches of coffee bean and toasty notes precede zesty orange peel flavors that culminate in a pleasant, apple-like finish. 90. — Cigar Aficionado

Rocky Patel Java Latte Petite Corona
Filler: Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Nicaragua
Size: 4 1/2 x 38
Java is made using a unique infusion of cocoa and espresso bean aromas with a well balanced mix of Nicaraguan tobaccos. The flavor is very subtle and well rounded. — Rocky Patel

Diamond Crown Robusto #4 Natural
Filler: Dominican
Binder: Dominican
Wrapper: Connecticut Shade
Size: 5 1/2 x 54
An alluring cigar with a smooth, creamy flavor. There are wood and some evergreen notes on the palate. A fairly mild smoke. 88. — Cigar Aficionado

Ernesto Perez Carrillo Core Natural Churchill
Filler: Dominican and Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuador
Size: 7 1/8 x 49
Profound leather notes immediately saturate the palate, followed by some chewy coffee bean flavors and a hickory finish. Draw and burn are even throughout. 91. — Cigar Aficionado

Ernesto Perez Carrillo INCH Maduro #64
Filler: Dominican, Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Size: 6 1/8 x 64
Blended with Dominican and Nicaragua tobaccos, INCH is draped with a Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Then blend is smooth and medium-bodied and burns cool with the monster ring gauges it comes in. Definitely recommended for those who enjoy a thick ring cigar. — Cigar.com

La Gloria Serie R Esteli #54
Filler: Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Nicaragua
Size: 6 x 54
Serie R Estelí was the second blend to surface during the blending process. Beefed by a top priming Jalapa Sol wrapper and rounded out by a combination of visos and ligeros, Serie R Estelí sings her Nicaraguan song at the top of her lungs. — La Gloria Cubana

Liga Privada Number 9 Toro
Filler: Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Nicaragua
Size: 6 x 52
Translated to English, “Liga Privada” means “private blend.” It is the perfect name, as this cigar was originally crafted not for resale, but for our own personal humidors. Dozens of intricate blends were created, but No. 9 was flawless in both flavor and character. Rich, complex and full bodied without being harsh, this amazing vitola is best described in one word: satisfying. — Drew Estate

CAO Flathead V770
Filler: Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Size: 5 ˝ x 54
Inspired by hot rods and pin-up girls, CAO Flathead is a box pressed collection that hits on all cylinders. Hand-shaped to deliver a striking flat top, the cigar features a brawny Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and a blend that’s heavy on Nicaraguan leaf. Its frontmarks are named for engine parts, but the tribute to muscle cars doesn’t end there. Flathead gives a nod to the muscle car engine, with a lid that’s easily removed and used as wall art. — General Cigar

Kentucky Fire Cured Fat Molly
Filler: Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Kentucky
Size: 5 x 56
Kentucky Fire Cured is not something new to the world of tobacco, as it has been grown for over 200 years. Easily compared to the smokey taste attributed to a peaty scotch, the KFC picks up nuances of the roasted hickory, oak or maple wood. — Drew Estates

La Gloria Trunk Show YG-23/26
Filler: Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua and Dominican
Wrapper: Ecuador
Size: 7 x 60
This Dominican made gem comes graced with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper and a potent blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. The blend emits notes of leather, black pepper, and cedar. And the surprise? You can actually smoke the band of the cigar. It's actually a homogenized tobacco leaf that's printed with a vegetable oil dye. — Cigar.com

Nica Rustica
Filler: Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Size: 6 x 52
Nica Rustica is a medium to full strength cigar that is blended to showcase native Nicaraguan tobaccos from Esteli and Jalapa. Aficionados will enjoy this rustic smoke that is robust and deeply satisfying. Genuine Connecticut Broadleaf encases Nica Rustica and imparts a subtle natural tobacco sweetness and spice. — Drew Estate
Communicating poorly and then acting smug when you are misunderstood is not cleverness.
