Top Cigars of the Year – A Second Opinion

As you’ve probably seen, its that time of the year where you are bombarded by Top Cigars of the Year list.  The biggest and most influential of the list is the one put out by Cigar Aficionado, the lifestyle magazine.  Usually this leads to a run on, at the very least, the top ten cigars on that list.  Whether you agreed with the list or not, it sells cigars.  With that said, we have reviewed some of the cigars on the top cigars list and offer you a second opinion on them.  Cigar reviews are highly subjective as each person has what they consider an idea of their perfect cigar.  Therefore, I think the more reviews or opinions you can get on a given cigar, the better.  We’ve done this the past couple of years so far to help the reader make that final decision:  2011, 2010 and 2009.  Some aren’t in the same vitola, but its the same line.  With that, here are the links to our reviews of Cigar Aficionado’s Top Cigars of the Years list (minus the Cubans):
