CigarMadness2106 –8 Eliminated to get to Elite 8

cigarmadness16-logo2Once again, I want to take this opportunity to thank our judges.  Our regular review staff of Doug Pope and Stuart Altschuler were augmented by old time regular Ben Goldsmith and newcomer (to us, not cigars)Bruce Rubin.  With the amount of smoke you might think there was a new pope.

The toughest part of dealing with the below listed sweet 16 was that they were all good smokes and you wanted to smoke them all again.  Since this was a blind tasting, I was receiving emails and calls asking when I would tell a particular judge just what cigar number 17 was (Aging Room Maduro), and yes, I liked that one, too.

Smoking these 16 cigars was a pleasure for all involved.  And a great bunch of sticks it is.  So, head right out to your local tobacconist wiht the sweet 16 list in hand.  You can’t go wrong with any of these great smokes.

The scores were tallied and the top 8 moved on to the elite 8 whose cigars are listed below:
