Best Cigars Orange County 2013 - Edgar Hoill Cigars
Don't let the name fool you: Edgar Hoill is one down-ass chingón (His nickname? "OSOK," for "One Shot, One Kill"). The Houston transplant is legendary in the lowrider circuit for his stunning photographs of ranflas and rucas, and he's a hit in Chicano circles for images of Mexican life that seem pulled from Gabriel Figueroa's cinematography. But Hoill is also making his presence known in the world of cigars with his namesake line. With tobacco pulled from Nicaragua and flavors straight from God's humidor, Hoill's cigars come in gorgeous wooden boxes and have the DNA of his previous cigar efforts, which got a score of 93 points out of 100 from Cigar Aficionado. If you want some, you'd better hurry: They sell faster than ice in the Mojave.
