After publishing 198 reviews of new cigars in 2022, we are finally ready to talk about the 25 highest-scoring cigars. It’s time for halfwheel’s Top 25 Live Show.

Watch as Brooks Whittington, Patrick Lagreid and I announce the cigars, starting with #25.

You may also watch on Facebook.

To be eligible for the Top 25 list, a cigar must:

  • First ship to stores in 2021-2022,
  • Must be reviewed in 2022,*
  • Must score at least 91 points.

*Must be a regular review, i.e. the reviewer smoked three cigars.

As a bonus, we are running a contest called Typos 4 Charity! The first viewer who leaves a comment that shows they found a typo on the broadcast is eligible to win a halfwheel prize pack. Terms and conditions can be found here. If we somehow make it through the broadcast without anyone finding a typo, we will donate $100 to a food bank of our choosing.

The full Top 25 post will be published shortly after the live show concludes.
