This time each year, since 1992, Two Guys Smoke Shop and The Cigar Authority have had the honor of announcing “The Cigar of the Year.”
Today marks 30 years of The Cigar of the Year, an award that has been given out by David Garofalo, owner of Two Guys Smoke Shop, and the host of the award-winning cigar podcast called The Cigar Authority. David explains that his team takes this assignment very serious and takes everything into consideration when giving out the award. Availability, consistency, quality and of course flavor and value are what separates a great cigar from a good cigar, and once again, they have a clear winner.
The 2021 “Cigar of the Year”
All Saints Cigars Saint Francis
6.5 x 52 - Toro
Released in the summer of 2021, the All Saints Cigars Saint Francis is made at Rocky Patel’s Tavicusa Cigar Factory in Nicaragua. This cigar features an exquisite Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. Packed in 20 count cigar boxes this medium-full bodied cigar is loaded with flavors and features a pristine burn due to its outstanding construction. The All Saints Saint Francis serves up a myriad of tasting notes including chocolate, mocha, coffee, cinnamon, allspice, leather and a hint of caramel creating full palate engagement from the first light to the last exhale.
The cigar stood out in a field of 7 contenders where it will be preserved in immortality for cigar smoking generations to come.
