An unlikely collaboration between a huge company and a boutique brand resulted in the highest score of the issue. Seeking Cameroon wrapper, Erik Espinosa, owner of Espinosa Cigars, turned to General Cigar’s vast inventories of tobacco. The outcome was a brand called Warzone, and one of its sizes is quite exceptional. See how it scored along with the new, diminutive sizes of Undercrown and vertical brand tastings of the Nicaraguan JFR Lunatic Loco and the Dominican La Galera Anemoi. Now that the Cuban Montecristo Supremos Edicíon Limitada for 2019 is getting some global distribution, we put it to the test. It’s late to market, but was it worth the wait?
