TIME: 1h 10 min

The La Historia pays homage to the Perez-Carrillo family history in the cigar business and specifically to the women, namely Ernesto’s mother and his daughter Lissette. This year the company introduced a new Lonsdale size called Parientes (Spanish for Parents), which brings the line to a total of five sizes.
It develops notes of coffee, black pepper, wood, earth, and leather. Further into the smoke, the black pepper becomes spicier and sweet nutty, and herbal aromas are added to the broad profile. The finale is balsamic.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Those who scored the highest among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews get re-selected. These products were then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared, and the TOP 5 are created.
Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs in order to give the right space to all the producing countries. From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. Together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy, and the best Boutique Brands, this list will be published in CigarsLover Magazine Winter 2021 issue.
