La Estancia is a brand belonging to the Meerapfel brothers, whose family is renowned also for their Cameroon grown wrapper. To create the “Exclusiva” version, they have spared no costs and troubles, using only the best tobaccos. It releases a smoke with a creaminess and elegance that are masterful, to say the least. Added to this is an excellent balance.
It delivers hazelnut and cedar wood, enriched by nuances of vanilla. In the second half, it turns to coffee beans and leather. Slowly, a touch of black pepper materializes as well, becoming more and more present.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews, those that scored the best score 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 made.
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. This list, together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy and the Best Boutique Brands, will be published in Winter 2019 issue of CigarsLover Magazine.
