The third part of this contest was to release Cuenca Cigars’s Top 3 list, the ultimate cigar challenge. The awaited moment of the final count down from Cuenca’s own best cigar of 2011 has arrived. We are so excited on the results and the winners; we have two fold the first year participants. It was a close call even though the spectrum of the last three cigars is indeed spread apart. 3rd Place Best Cigar of the Year

The third runner up is ILLUSIONE MG12

The first that call for in this finalist is the NAME. It will take on a trip just reading it, looks like a title of a science fiction novel/movie. The presentation confirms the initial impressions since it comes wrapped in silver aluminum foil (the natural) and black (the Maduro), that it put it out of the ordinary in the cigar market. It is a well build cigar, tight on the cap and on the tip. Both "Vitolas" have a great color wrapper. It has a good consistency during the smoke and the draw is not perfect but a good one.

2nd Place Best Cigar of the Year

The second finalist really deserves all kinds of good comments: Rosado "Sun Grown" fifty four.

Once again we have some creativity on the name of the cigar. You can easily say that is the BEST value vs. price equation out there. The presentation is modest but it has what needs it. Well build, great aroma, great medium-soft flavor, no "kick-back" on this one Belongs the great Family of Arturo Fuentes, so right there you are guarantee of quality craftsmanship and love. 1st Place Best Cigar of the Year

For the Grand finale, GOD OF FIRE Don Carlos, Toro. Especial Edition 2011.

WOW, now we are talking! A three year matured cigar, perfect build! perfect wrapper! Unique ring! Great consistency in the smoke! Once you finish it you either want to cry or light up another one. The only negative is the availability, but then again you do not have to worry about that, we have it for you right here in Cuenca’s.

For the last part of this contest we have chosen three final winners.

The three final winners will be receiving a Box or a Cigar Sampler of the line of cigars they represent as winners and they are:
Gary Wong from Lodi, California – to represent the Illusine MJ 12 Top 3 of our list.
Iliana D. Graibe from Miami, Florida – to represent the Arturo Fuente Rosado Sun grown Fifty Four, Top 2 of our list.
Eddie Martell from Azle, Texas – to represent the God of Fire Don Carlos Toro, Top 1 of our list.
Eddie Martell has already received his gift. See Pictures he send it to us.

Those winners should email their mailing address to us in order to receive their gift. I think this was a lot of fun and we are looking forward to do it again this coming October.

Until them, keep checking our page for future promotions and contests. Thank you all.
