Thick Ash Cigar Magazine’s Top 15 of 2015

 

The past year showcased and produced a lot of great cigars. 2015 has come and gone, but the year’s best smokes are still hanging out in the humidor. We have smoked, voted, and worked tirelessly to bring you the ‘Top 15 of 2015’.

Our Guidelines:

  • It must hold a Thick Ash rating of 90+.
  • The cigars must be sold in the USA, and be available at most locations.
  • They should be produced regularly (No shop exclusives, limited editions..etc.).

We gathered up the Thick Ash crew and discussed each cigar in detail. We smoked a ton of great cigars throughout the year, we developed and used the guidelines voted on by our staff, and we compiled a list of what we consider to be the ‘Top 15 of 2015’.
