Every year Cuba releases cigars under the Edición Limitada program. Prized by collectors, they are made in limited quantities. When the program began in 2000, there were four. Other years saw as many as five, and none were released in 2002. But since 2005 the number has been consistent with three Edición Limitadas per year.

What follows is our comprehensive ratings of the Edición Limitadas. These cigars are heavily faked, and many counterfeiters invent Limitadas that don't exist. Use this as a buying guide to protect yourself and to seek out the best of the ELs.
