The Top 25 Cigars of 2015 (11-15)


It’s that time of year again! Every January, Cigar Snob releases its rankings of the previous year’s 25 best smokes. This year’s list includes a variety of products on every front: format, profile, country of origin, and price to name a few.

How do we arrive at this list? It starts with a review of all the cigar ratings we released during 2015. Any cigar that scored 91 or higher was smoked one more time by our tasting panel. We used this fresh feedback on the crème de la crème to produce the list you see below.

Scroll to the bottom of this list for links to the rest of our Top 25 rankings.
