We are pleased to present our 1st annual Blind Man’s Puff .

[slideshow_deploy id=’5004′]

Each of our 13 panelists were given 15 votes to cast with the following guidelines:

  • The cigars must have been released this year with the following exceptions:
    • Re-releases of old brands are eligible
    • New sizes in blends that already existed are eligible
    • Lines that were not previously introduced to the US but became available in 2013 are eligible
    • Since they change so much from year to year, and take a while longer to become ready to smoke, Cuban Cigars from Box Code Dates from 2012-2013 are eligible and don’t necessarily have to be a ‘new’ release.
  • Only one vote per cigar line per reviewer

Other Info:

  • Votes were not limited to cigars we reviewed on Blind Man’s Puff, but must have been smoked by the reviewer this year.
  • Votes were submitted individually without discussion.
  • This list was not based off blind reviews as is our normal procedure. The reviewers knew which cigars they were voting for.

Here is a full sortable list of the top 25 cigars with links to the ones we have reviewed.
