    Can’t argue too much with this. I’d put La Riqueza above the Decade, but that’s about it.

    What about the Nub Habano? It’s a good cigar plus it made its debut this year.

    I haven’t smoked numbers 3 & 4 but the others are very good. Great list.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I must try the La Riqueza and Cubano. Now, I will be on the look out this holiday season. Thanks.

    Happy Holidays!!!

    I have found the special v figurado to be the best of the Oliva “V”… more bang for the buck…also the Illusione 88 is similar but more complex than the cubao.

    Of 2008, there’s been a boom in the availability of great non-cuban cigars. Some of my favorites, in no particular order:

    Tatuaje Havana VI
    Illusione MK and CG:4
    Oliva V maduro
    Casa Magna gran toro
    Cusano LXI Sun Grown Habano
    Perdomo Habano maduro
    Perdomo 10th Anniversary Reserve maduro
    Cruzado Dominicos
    Alec Bradley Tempus

    The 26 and Decade are two of the best cigars I have ever had. I keep decades stocked. I wish I had the money to do the same with the 26.

    Doesn’t it always come down to money, Kal? At least for us blue-collar guys, we may be able to buy a box of mid-line cigars, but only a few top-shelf singles for the special occasions.
