June, 2017 = Padrón domination! Sure, the cigars have always done quite well in the rankings, but in June, a Padrón cigar won literally every category they were capable of winning (i.e. Padrón cannot win in the Dominican, Cuba, or Honduran categories). Other interesting results include Padrón 1926 Serie No. 90 Maduro as the overall winner, which places the cigar only one win away from being entered into the Cigar Wars Hall of Fame. Also, Fuente Fuente OpusX Belicoso XXX and Montecristo No. 2 both retained their top-ranked spots for the second month in a row.
