As I approach the announcement of 2010 Cigar of the Year and runner-up, I thought it would be interesting to see what other people are listing as their top cigars. Everyone had different criteria. While some people included Cubans, I opted not to since they are not generally available.
The amazing thing is how different each of these lists are. I’ll try to put some more up as I find them. While not of these lists are wrong, we all know the Cigar Coop Top 30 is the most accurate 🙂 Seriously, it is how all of our lists differ that make this stuff so much fun.

A Cigar Smoker’s Journal – Has a fan picked Top 10 and names La Aurora 107 #1 stick and their Top 15 for 2010 naming the My Father Limited Edition 2010 #1
