Halfwheel named the Alfonso Anejo No. 3 The Number 1 cigar for 2023!
Alfonso is another astounding line from Selected Tobaccos, the brand behind Atabey, Byron, Bandolero, and more. Alfonso pays homage to the Alfonso family, who have been producing premium, hand rolled cigars in Cuba since 1850. Alfonoso's Produccion Limitada line uses a 2 year old Ecuadorian wrapper, 3 year old Ecuadorian binder, and fillers aged for 3 years. Followed by 4 years of post-roll age, a process used almost exclusively by Selected Tobacco brands.
Produccion Limitada starts out with the Anejos No. 1, at a smooth, complex medium + bodied cigar, and then tapers down to the No. 6, ringing in just shy of medium. With the smaller of the vitolas being more full bodied, and the larger being more medium bodied.
From Halfwheel "While the actual flavors make up the majority of the score, construction plays a large role as well, so it is no surprise that the Extra Añejo No. 3 excelled in each of the three aspects of burn, draw and smoke production. Across the six total Alfonso Extra Añejo No. 3 cigars that were smoked as part of this process, there were just two deductions out of a possible 114 points. That resulted in the Alfonso Extra Añejo No. 3 having the highest average construction score amongst the 25 cigars on this list."
