This exciting edition of Cigar Insider is loaded with an extraordinary amount of high-scoring smokes from different countries, plus, a preview of the best cigars from the August issue of Cigar Aficionado before it hits newsstands. Tasting highlights include a collaboration between cigarmakers A.J. Fernandez and José “Jochy” Blanco that resulted in a 93-point Torpedo, as well as a limited-edition Lancero from Herrera Esteli. But the spotlight belongs to an Oliva that earned an impressive 94 points. Also, read about some of the new brands coming to the IPCPR trade show at the end of the month, and a cigar that made it to the top of Mount Everest.
