What are your favorite tobacco's you tried from 2014. Here is a list of my Top 10 Tobaccos that I tried for the first time this year. This is not my "all-time" list but just the best I tried from 2014.
1. GL Pease - Gas Light

2. Mac Baren - HH Latakia Flake

3. McClellands - Black Sea Sokhoum

4. McClellands - Grey Havens

5. Hearth & Home - Anniversary Kake

6. GL Pease - Maltese Falcon

7. Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East (Ready Rub version)

8. Dunhill - Early Morning Pipe

9. Russ Ouellette - Warm Up

10. Dunhill - Night Cap

HM Cornell and Diehl - Pirate Kake

HM Esoterica - Margate (I've only smoked a couple bowls of this one otherwise it probably would have jumped up into the Top 10)
If you're knowledgeable about your tobacco blends and their contents you'll notice a theme with most of mine. :puffy:
What are your favorites from this year?

Some really interesting stuff I had this year for the first time, with favorites starred:
*Esoterica Stonehaven

*Gawith Full Virginia Flake

Gawith Best Brown Flake

*GLP Union Square (a tin from 2009 about blew my mind)

GLP Laurel Heights (from 2007)

GLP Samarra (2001)

*GLP Blackpoint (two tins, 2006 & 2007, which were amazing)

GLP Robusto (2002)

GLP Jackknife Plug

GLP Triple Play (the only new to me GLP blend this year that I didn't care for)

*PCCA original Boston 1776 (tinned in 1996)

McClelland Christmas Cheer (2002)

*Drucquer XX Press, which I think is McClelland 2015 (1990 or so)

*H&H White Knight

MacBaren Navy Flake

Germain Balkan Sobranie
Full Virginia Flake and Stonehaven instantly became favorites going forward. The Drucquer XX Press is incredible but I'm going to stretch out my 4oz as long as I can. Blackpoint was an eye opener when I wasn't expecting it.

As far as newly discovered and loved tobaccos in 2014 only, my list would be as follows:
1. Motzek Strang
2. HU Director's Cut
3. Maltese Falcoln
4. GQ Askwith Kake
5. Billy Budd
6. HU Dockworker
7 Telegraph Hill
8 Solani 633 - truth be told I had tried this before 2014 and thought it was ok - and then recently I tried some of this with a couple years of age on it and was simply blown away by how good it was.
9. Gaslight
