We asked, and you all responded. Cigars & Leisure held its first Readers’ Choice Awards, asking you the readers to choose the best of the best for the past year. What was your favorite cigar? The best beer you downed? How about your favorite international travel destination or the best airport to spend a layover in? The best critics are often people you know and trust, and we relied on all of you cigar enthusiasts to help us award the best out there. Check out the results of our Readers’ Choice Awards below.
