TOP 10 CIGARS OF 2013


Choosing a top 10 list is no easy feat, it gets even harder when your very own rules restrict you to only include the cigars that were reviewed.

Since then the Ezra Zion boys have been busy making a real foothold in the boutique cigar market by signing a distribution deal with Emilio Cigars and launching new lines including the Honor Series....
