Well it’s that time of the year were us blogger’s all come out with our Top Ten list and I am no different except my Top Ten isn’t based on the cigar coming out this year it’s based on the Ten best I smoked this year. So without further ado here we go.

These cigars that have made my top ten are all cigars that I have either reviewed or not but have smoked more than my share and continue to bring me the same great experience over and over.
