We have a tie! The Sin Compromiso Seleccion No. 5 and the Prensado Gran Belicoso Ash Quarterly Edition have tied for this year's Cigar of the Year.
The Ash Quarterly Award for Cigar of the Year is decided by the highest rated cigar through our monthly Reviewer Packs (formerly Rating Club). The cigars are rated by consumers, giving YOU the voice.
This marks Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust's 5th award this year after a clean sweep of the 4 nominated and voted on awards from consumers (Consumer Engagement, Woman of the Year, Man of the Year, and Company of the Year) and their 7th overall award after winning Company of the Year and Man of the Year last year. It is Alec Bradley's first award this year and 2nd overall after winning last years Founders Award. The Founders Award is given by Ash Quarterly Founder, Jason Faulkenburg, and is given to a company of individual that made a significant impact on Ash Quarterly throughout the year.
We would like to congratulate both Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and Alec Bradley on this amazing achievement. Details of the cigars and their ratings are below.
