|Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, one of the cigar world’s true masters, has re-created himself with his collection of La Gloria Cubana Reserva Figurados, the best of which is the Selectos de Lujos. This gorgeous figurado, which has more supple curves than an Italian sports car, is made from middle priming tobaccos that give the cigar balance and elegance. A few extra months of aging helps. This 7 1/4-inch x 54-ring cigar also appeared on our inaugural Top 25 list. It’s always a rich and rewarding smoke, with a bright cedary flavor and a richness that goes on and on.|

A gorgeous perfecto diadema size with a fine draw and even burn. The smoke is creamy and rich with cedar, coffee and spice flavors. The floral finish hints of milk chocolate. Balanced and elegant.

This large cigar is nutty and smooth, with a bit of earth. It’s medium-bodied, with a light earthy finish.
