January/February 2018

Forty years ago, the movie no one thought could be made changed the face of cinematic comedy. In February's Cigar Aficionado, we revisit Animal House and find out what happened to its whacky inhabitants. Plus, we announce the Top 25 Cigars of 2017 and our annual list of best value cigars, sit down with legendary putter maker Scotty Cameron, explore the world of luxury safari travel and take a look at the peculiar stories of parallel brands, cigars that share the same names but are made in separate countries. Also, our panel of editors rated 79 cigars in six sizes: Churchill, corona gorda, figurado, lonsdale, panetela and robusto.

It's one thing to make a good cigar. It's something else to make a great cigar. But it's something else entirely to make a great cigar over and over again. And that kind of consistency is precisely what is required to make Cigar Aficionado's list of Top 25 cigars.
