And here are the picks for number 4:

David’s Number 4: Black Label Trading Company Deliverance lancero – While I am not always one to favor a boutique cigar, when there is a cigar that is this well done it demands to be spoken of with high praises. An honest and unpolished yet seemingly refined experience, the Black label Trading Company’s Deliverance Lancero’s Mexican San Andrés wrapper provides the classic muddy earthy notes but is subdued by the Nicargauan binder and filler providing a sweet and spicy note similar to Cinnamon while keeping with the leather and cedar core we all know and love. While it was near the end of the year when I first had the chance to smoke a few, the unique and captivating flavor profile had solidified it’s position within the top 5. Come back in 2015 for my full, indepth review!

Brandon’s Number 4: Hermosa Tierra Santa: This cigar is an ode to Nicaragua and it really shows how great Nicaraguan tobacco can be.  This cigar showcases wonderful notes of cedar, spice, coffee, and cocoa in a very well balanced package.  Tierra Santa is a fantastic cigar for anyone wanting to break the chains of the “norm” of Nicaraguan cigars.  Click here for a full review!

Maxwell’s Number 4: Tatuaje TAA Exclusive 2014: Tatuaje has always done a fantastic job releasing incredible exclusives over the past several years and this was no exception. The Tatauje TAA series have always been one of my favorite cigars and what has come from Tatuaje going back to their “traditional” TAA exclusive has earned them the number 3 cigar of the year on my list.
