And now the moment you have all been waiting for, our NUMBER 1 CIGARS OF 2014!
David’s Number 1:Â Drum Roll! For anyone who follows me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter – you already know what cigar I am about to mention. Add to this a very specific tribute to Johnny Cash and his song Cocaine Blues, this has by far been my favorite cigar expeirence of the year. While this year’s list has been full of amazing Nicarguan based cigars, there are certain sticks that we all experience that seem as if they had be made just to fit our own personal flavor profile preference. Full body with copious amounts of that spicy black pepper we all love mixed with leather, roasted nuts and earth – this cigar takes what we all know about Nicaraguan tobacco and puts them on stage with their own special, refined, gourmet and unique way. The folks at Crowned Heads not only have the history, ability and connections to produce a ‘good’ cigar but they have the down right skill, talent and gift to produce ‘amazing’ cigars. Personally, I cannot think of a cigar that I find ‘perfect’ for nearly any situation – the .44s for a quick smoke or a Willy Lee to sit back and reflect on the days events. By far my favorite cigar of 2014 – the Jericho Hill takes lead in my list for 11!
Brandon’s Number 1: Regius Exclusivo U.S.A. Lancero:Â The first time I smoked this cigar I knew that it would be a contender for this spot. Â Each and every time after I fell more and more in love with it. Â This cigar is blended to be a traditional profile but is so much more. Â This is one of the most complex and balanced cigars I have smoked, combined with impeccable construction. Â This is the perfect representation of what a premium cigar experience should be!

Maxwell’s Number 1: Caldwell Eastern Standard Euro Express:Â Every once in a while, something comes into your life and absolutely changes your perspective. Whether it is someone you meet, an encounter that you experience or simply a style of food you try, there are those little things in life that can have a huge impact on you; this cigar was one of them.Â Honestly, I was not expecting much from this cigar. I thought it would be some mediocre, gimmicky, mild cigar with very few flavors. Man, was I dead wrong. The Eastern Standard by Caldwell Cigars is one of the best examples of what passion and endurance can create: a deeply complex, ever flavorful and incredibly well balanced end product. This cigar is so much more than just some tobacco rolled into a stogie, it is truly a piece of art, in the truest meaning of the word. Â Click here for the full review!
