3 CAO Italiano 
4 Sancho Panza Nicho A Mano 
5 Sancho Panza Extra- Fuerte
6 Whiskey Rebellion 
7 Prensado

    In alphabetical order:

    Alec Bradley Prensado
    CAO Brazilia
    E.P Carrillo Cardinal
    Fallen Angel
    JOYA Red
    LaGloria Cubana Series R Natural
    My Father Le Bijou
    Punch Bareknuckle
    Punch Gran Puro
    Tatuaje Tattoo

    The process I used was to write down my very favorite cigars and then, painfully, cut it down to 10.  FWIW, these are the ones that didn't make the top group, but I enjoy immensely:

    CAO Columbia
    Cohiba Red Dot
    E,P Carrillo Dark Rituals
    E.P Carrillo E-Stunner
    LaGloria Cubana
    My Father
    Oliva Serie G
    Oliva Serie V
    Oliva Serie V Melanio
    Perdomo Reserve Champagne
    Sancho Panza

    I know I'm missing a bunch and there are a tone of amazing cigars I did not include.  Every year awesome cigars are produced, but all time top 10 is hard to remember.

    Welcome @hawk83. Heard you were nailed with some hurricane force winds today. My daughter lives there. Trees down all over.
  • Hawk83Hawk83 Posts: 18 ✭✭
    Hey thanks @Albinfk ! Yeah it was a real mess, a ton of tress down and power out. Shingles and siding just ripped off a lot of homes. Very unusual for this area. The worst of it seems over. I hope you daughter stayed safe through it.
  • AlbinfkAlbinfk Posts: 1,923 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Hope you faired well. Huge pine just missed her car by 10 ft. Happy birthday.

    I'm really happy about that AJ Fernandez "Chosen One" sampler.  I picked up last night after some negotiations with the wife.  It has 3 of my top 10 in it!!!  Woot woot!
