Cigar lovers will gather at the Fontainebleau Hotel on March 16 for one of the largest cigar celebrations of the year: Cigar Aficionado’s Big Smoke Miami.

Not only is the Big Smoke a chance to greet your favorite cigarmakers and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow aficionados, it’s also a fine place to stock up your humidor with all the premium cigars that are included with your ticket price.

So far, a partial list of 35 cigars has been announced, with more cigars to come. Some of the blends featured on this list have been plucked straight from Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2017.

Alec Bradley will be passing out its Tempus Natural (the Centuria size was the No. 5 cigar of 2017); Villiger is bringing its La Flor de Ynclan (the Robusto was our No. 10 cigar); and the Ventura Cigar Co. will have its Archetype Axis Mundi on hand (the Toro size made the list also, at No. 13). Drew Estate has announced it will feature its Undercrown Churchill at Big Smoke Miami, which is the brand and size that made No. 25 on our Top Cigars of 2017 list.

There will also be at least three recently released cigars in the Big Smoke Miami lineup. The newest is the Romeo San Andrés by Romeo y Julieta, the first Romeo y Julieta to use a Mexican wrapper, which is due out in March. Also from Altadis USA is the Trinidad Santiago, an all-Dominican version of the classic Cuban brand that was released in September. Nicaragua’s Plasencia family will also be on hand with their Cosecha 146. This cigar was released in November and showcases harvest-specific tobaccos from the family’s farms in Nicaragua and Honduras.

We will be updating this list as more cigars are added in the coming weeks. So check back soon.
