For the last 27 Years, David Garofalo has announced the Cigar of the Year. This year it started with 8 contenders and you the listener of The Cigar Authority. For the past month we’ve solicited your votes and on today’s show we will announce the 2018 Cigar of the Year. Did you vote for the winner?

In the first hour we will smoke C.O. Jones which is made by a former Cigar of the Year winner Jochy Blanco. His La Galera won in 2016. In the second hour we fire up the cigar that has become a tradition on the show before New Years Eve. That cigar is the Perdomo Champagne from the factory that won in 1998 and 2000.

The Cigar Authority is the longest current cigar podcast on the internet today. 9 Years in and we’ve asked the listeners for some show ideas and today’s show is one of them. Almost 2 months ago Mr. Jonathan read the email suggestion and quickly went off on how bad of an idea it was. Well, that was enough for us to use the idea.

Today we will share some of the movies we enjoy and what we feel is the right cigar to pair with them.

During the course of the show we will light up two cigars with the first from The Cigar Authority Care Package being the La Aurora ADN Dominicano, better known as La Aurora DNA. In the second hour we will light up the King’s Treasure from the Contender’s Pack.
