If there was a cigar that would get the award for most surprising finish, the Cornelius & Anthony The Gent in a 6 x 60 size would probably be the frontrunner. It's not that Cornelius & Anthony hasn't made good cigars, but even the company seemed to be favoring its other IPCPR 2018 release—The Mistress—as the star of its own show.

Nonetheless, The Gent ties for a fourth place finish on our top 25.

As I mentioned in my original review, I didn't go into the cigar with any preconceived expectations of how the cigar would taste, but I certainly wasn't expecting it to be as rich and complex as The Gent is. — Charlie Minato.
