Our countdown of the top 11 cigars of 2014 continues, today we reveal The Nut’s number 10 cigar of the year! Â Please note that a full review may not have been published yet for every cigar, but they are coming soon!
Recap of what we have so far:
David: #11 Dunhill 1907
Brandon: #11 Matilde Recanar
Maxwell: #11Â Casa Fernandez Aganrosa Leaf Maduro Ilustre
And here are the picks for number 10:
David’s Number 10:Â Studio Tobac Reckoning: Being the CI houseblend I know I am going to catch some shit for puttingÂ this one on the list but being a huge fan of the Garcia-esque pepper bombs this cigar provides a Cain likeÂ backbone with a Garcia like pepper blast all while giving itâ€™s own flavorful and unique creamy, sweet,Â woody and espresso note that is truly one of a kind.
Brandon’s Number 10:Â E.P. Carrillo 5th Anniversary: This cigar showcases a beautiful and flavorful Sumatra wrapper with notes of pepper, coffee and cream bundled with all the performance you Â would expect from E.P. Carrillo. Â See the full review here!
Maxwell’s Number 10:Â Crowned Heads Jericho Hill:Â The first time I had a Jericho Hill, I was not very impressed; it was good, but not great. After hearing so many good things about them, I decided to try another. And then another. And another. If it had just a little more age on it, I could see this definitely being on my top 5 cigars of the year, but I guess top 10 will have to do! I have several set aside that I plan on smoking mid-late next year to see if they do in fact â€œeven outâ€ with age, allowing the flavors to marry. Perhaps then they will reach their full potential.
