With two cigars in the top 10 it was a no brainer. Roma Craft Tobac is this year's Manufacturer of the Year. They had the number 3 cigar; Roma Craft Neanderthal HN, and the number 6 cigar; Roma Craft CroMagnon Aquitaine Cranium. Congratulations and I look forward to trying your next blends.

An Honorable Mention goes to House of Emilio who had 3 cigars in the top 10 that were rated just behind the Roma Craft.
