Our Top 5 Cigars of 2016 is here!
5) Black Works Studio Killer Bee – MainStay Rating 91
The Black Works Studio Killer Bee is a Nicaraguan power house wrapped in an Ecuadorian Maduro leaf. This amazing stick was first introduced in our humidor during the summer of 2016, and boy was it worth it! With strong pepper flavor mixed in with cocoa, this stick keeps you on your toes! Get it while you can!
4) Powstanie Habano- MainStay Rating of 93
The Powstanie Habano Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Indonesian binder with Dominican criollo, Estelí ligero filler. We have worked night and day to bring this amazing cigar into our humidor this year. The guys over at Cigar Hustler did an amazing job at making this blend from the factory best known for RoMa Craft’s cigars. This smoke is a spicy cider, with hints of leather and chocolate. You can’t go wrong with this, or its Broadleaf brother!
3) Fable Forth Prime – MainStay Rating 94
The Fable Forth Prime with it’s Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper, Ecuadorian Habano Ligero Binder, with a Dominican Republic/Nicaraguan filler, is a powerhouse of flavor and pepper. This was a cigar that we had been watching from afar, hoping that we could bring it in. When it was announced and within our reach we ordered as many boxes as we could! Boy was it worth it!
2) Kafie San Andres – MainStay Rating 95
It is no secret that Kafie Cigars and the MainStay have had a long happy friendship, all built on the foundation of Kafie Cigars! We were lucky enough to get a taste of Kafie San Andres before it was released, and from our first cold draw we knew that Dr. Gaby Kafie was on to something! After a few months of aging in their aging rooms, they released the San Andres. This cigar is rich in nuts and citrus, and we love to refer to it as “Peanut Butter and Jelly in a stick!”. Whether you taste what we taste, or not. You will see why we call it that. The smoke is smooth and comfortable like the PB&J you had as a kid! The blend has an amazing Mexican San Andres wrapper, Honduran Binder, and Nicaraguan/Dominican Republic/Brazilian filler. It is a must have, and I can certainly call this my “go to” smoke!
1)La Flor Dominicana Suave Maduro – MainStay Rating of 96
This one is a customer favorite! During an Event with La Flor Dominicana our customers had the their first experiences with the Suave Maduro! It is rich with Cocoa flavor and aroma! It goes down smooth but you know you just smoked LFD!
