Top Ten Cigars of 2014
ToastedFoot's Top Ten Cigars of 2014



Another year has passed and it has become time to look back and reflect on the past year. For us at ToastedFoot it has been an exciting year filled with many changes. Jonathan David and Willy Styl merged their sites to create a bigger and better ToastedFoot, we’ve reviewed more cigars than ever before and seen many exciting new releases hit store shelves. All of us at ToastedFoot hope to bring even more new reviews and features to the site in the coming year. But, before we get involved with the future let’s take one last look back at the past…

La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse by Ashton Cigars
Cigar Review: La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse


Sometimes hotly anticipated cigars fail to live up to the hype, but that is definitely not true of the La Aroma de Cuba made for Ashton at the My Father Cigar Factory in Nicaragua. The Noblesse is the first limited edition cigar released by Ashton. A medium bodied full flavored cigar, the Noblesse is one that can be enjoyed by a wide variety of cigar enthusiasts.

Southern Draw Firethorn toro Cigar
Cigar Review: Southern Draw Firethorn



A lot of boutique cigar companies seem to be popping up in Texas. Founded by US Veterans with a Southern flare, the Southern Draw theme seems to be the perfect fit for a company from Texas. The Firethorn is the second cigar from Southern Draw Cigars, and is manufactured at A. J. Fernandez’s Tabacalera Fernandez located in Estelí, Nicaragua.

EP Carrillo 5 Year Anniversary Cigar (EPC)
Cigar Review: EP Carrillo 5 Year Anniversary


To celebrate five years of EPC Cigars Ernesto-Perez Carrillo has released the EP Carrillo 5 Year Anniversary cigar. It manages to be reminiscent of other Carrillo cigars while being something special at the same time. Everything about the 5 Year Anniversary is impressive. Fans of Carrillo cigars will certainly find it worth the money.

Joel Sherman 75th Celebration cigar by Nat Sherman
Cigar Review: Joel Sherman 75th Celebration by Nat Sherman



Joel Sherman is one of those men in the cigar industry that you can’t help but like. As the son of legendary tobacconist Nat Sherman celebrates his 75th year, it seems only appropriate that the company honor him with a cigar bearing his name. The Nat Sherman Joel Sherman 75th Celebration is a cigar worthy of carrying Joel’s name. It is a superbly constructed mild-medium bodied cigar that is full of flavor. Since it comes in boxes of ten, this is a great cigar to give as a gift to the mild cigar smoker.
