The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2009
Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break
The shortest cigar in our ranking is the diminutive but flavorful Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break. It's another product of José "Pepin" Garcia, this one made for longtime cigar industry veteran Nestor Miranda, the founder of Miami Cigar & Co. Last year was the 20th anniversary of Miranda's company, and he turned to Garcia to make the Special Selection blend. (This is the fourth cigar from Garcia on our list, tying his company with Fuente and Raices Cubanas for the most cigars in the Top 25.) It’s unusual to see a cigar from Garcia with Honduran and Dominican tobaccos. The short cigar is beefy and nutty, balanced by a touch of sweetness.
