The 2020 COTY TOTY Episode

At the end of each year, we look at what we think were the year’s best freshman releases for cigars and tobacco, and tell you what our picks are for the top spot.

2020 saw some great new releases, and picking the best of the best was no easy task. And that was an enjoyable problem to have! Our COTY award went to the Perdomo 10th Anniversary Box Pressed Maduro Epicure and the TOTY award went to G.L. Pease Spark Plug. What was the competition, and how did we come to those conclusions?

Along with sharing our picks for cigar and tobacco of the year, we share some of our favorite clips from 2020, Pastor Padrón gives a Cigar Confession, Paul shares some industry news that puts the cherry on 2020, Nick answers the hardest Would You Rather yet, and Pastor Padrón answers the question, “is Pastor Padrón a real pastor?”
