King of Smokes 2008 Awards

It is time for me to reveal the results on my revisit on all the cigars reviewed in 2008. To reflect a wider group of cigars, i have given awards in several gategories, divided according the country of origin. The King of Smokes 2008 title goes to the best cigar of the year regardless of origin. It is just simply the best cigar reviewed that year. All in all, 2008 was a good cigar year for me, but unfortunately i was not able to review all the cigars i smoked and wanted to review.
