Seth's Humidor Top 25 Cigars of 2011 Post (In-Depth)

Note: If you wonder how a cigar makes it into my Top 25 List of that year, it is very simple. From the day I post my Seth's Humidor Top 25 Cigars, December 21st, I begin taking a list of cigars that I have smoked. That list continues to grow until December 1st of the following year. Any cigar in that list, whether I have reviewed it in previous years or it is a brand new review has the potential of making it into Seth's Humidor Top 25 Cigars. I look at the cigars I smoked in that year, and not new releases or reviews of that year. If it was great two years, and it is great right now, then it qualifies. Just because it is new does not mean that it makes it in, or has an upper hand in making the Top 25 list of that year. With all of that being said, let us look at the winners.
