Juan López Selección No. 1
SIZE: 46 x 143 mm (5 5/8”)
PRICE: $ – | € 11,2
The Selección No. 1 is one of the two representative cigars of the brand’s portfolio. Despite the continuous discontinuation, for Juan Lopez, the constancy of quality has always remained high, and this Corona Gorda is proof. The cigar releases a straightforward and creamy smoke on the palate, with well-defined aromas and a long finish.
Flavorwise, it reveals notes of wood, earth, leather, and black pepper, with the latter two being better structured towards the second third. Hints of nuts and balsamic herbs also appear.
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.
