Since its addition in February, 2016, My Father’s Le Bijou 1922 has consistently ranked among the top cigars at Cigar Wars. Although, it had curiously managed to stay off the top-scoring charts for each month… until now. Not only did the cigar win the “Best Overall” award, but 3 other categories as well. Other notable changes included Drew Estate’s Nica Rustica for the “Best Affordable Cigar” and Fuente’s Añejo No. 77 for “Best Dominican”, finally knocking off the OpusX Lost City from a 3-month winning streak.

Highest Ranked Affordable Cigar: Nica Rustica

Drew Estate Nica Rustica cigarFor most Drew Estate fans (and cigar fans in general), Nica Rustica was just what the Dr. ordered. The Undercrown often served as the affordable alternative to the premium Liga Privada cigars, but lacked the heavy Broadleaf wrapper of Liga. Nica Rustica fills the gap, offering dense and earthy flavors at a much more friendly price.
