Carl and Ruben took Instagram by storm, there is no other way to put it. Probably the youngest blood on the cigar community and with immense knowledge about cigars. They are very active on their account with giveaways (in which we had also the pleasure to participate), partnerships, and even a very entertaining podcast. They have no filter when talking about cigars and that is the way it should be, don’t you think?

Every year, we put out a list of the best cigars we have tried. This list is entirely free of brand advertisement of any kind. It is only a summary of the cigars we really enjoyed and had the pleasure to taste.

2020 was a truly special year for us all. The pandemic forced us to be less present with our friends but it also helped us to focus on what really matters: providing you good quality content. Enjoy the list and please reach out to us if you have any questions or suggestions.

Short-fillers are cigars too and it is time to end that myth that short-filler cigars have less quality than long-filler ones. In fact, in some cases, that is not even true at all.

A short-filler box has the initials “TC” right by the box date. TC initials stand for Tripa Corta, which translated to English means short filler.
