Presenting the Top 10 Cigars of 2014

We smoked a lot of cigars in 2014 and now it’s time to announce our top 10 cigars of the year. Just a quick bit of information on how these are selected is below. Since we have always prided ourselves on the notion of the “everyday man (or woman)” style of review, our Top 10 is not going to be limited to just cigars that were released in 2014, but that we tried for the first time in 2014. We smoked just over 100 different cigars for review in 2014 and we are pleased to present to you our Top 10 of the year as well as 5 Honorable Mentions, click here or below to see who made the list, watch the reviews see our ratings.
