We reviewed nearly 300 cigars in 2017. As is often the case with halfwheel, it’s a wide range of items from the biggest releases of the year to some very limited products. Some were expensive, some were gigantic and one of them was a coffee-infused candela-wrapped cigar from a new company.
halfwheel’s list is eclectic and it’s a decent sampling of what’s on the market, but in a world where there was probably 1,500 new SKUs for the American market alone, our year was just that, a decent sampling. That matter compounded itself by events that took place in the summer of 2016, namely, impending regulations by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration forced tens of thousands of new cigars onto the U.S. market.
