Connoisseur's Corner

Cigars that are at least five years old, but often much older, are reviewed in the Connoisseur’s Corner section of Cigar Aficionado magazine, and many receive exceptionally high scores. Unlike every other review conducted by Cigar Aficionado, these reviews are done by one taster, due to the rarity of the cigars being smoked, and the the rater knows the identity of what he is smoking, so it’s not a blind tasting. These aged cigars, particularly aged Cuban cigars, have received some of the highest ratings in our magazine’s history, including several perfect 100-point scores.
