Favorite Factory?

Does anyone here have a favorite factory that they seek out or look for cigars which they make? Like cigar made by Aganorsa, AJ Fernandez or Placencia?


I find myself really leaning towards Aganorsa blends.

Love this place...
So are you able to decipher the box codes and get cigars made at those factories? Or do you buy only certain brands ?
Some box codes I can recognize: (I posted this on a forum somewhere around 2016)

LUB - H. Upmann Factory
MUO - El Laguito (Cohiba)
ULA - Partagas Factory
These are all from 2014, and are the very best grade cigars...

These are very good codes, some better than others:
RAE HU
MOB El L
ULE Partagas
AME La Corona
BMS HU

These are average box codes, I would try to age these another 5 years)

RUE
EML (a few spectacular boxes)
PSM
ESO
ARG


Had some bad boxes as well, and were mostly:

OEP
SUE
LAS
LOM
ELU

Everyone’s mileage may vary, this is only my opinion.

(note) With Cuban cigars, it matters more with the great crop years, than the factory where they were rolled... For example, the year 2014, all of the factories had an abundance of great wrapper and really good binder and filler, and they all had “some” world class box codes... but, pretty much all ULA, MUO and LUB are world class...
