There is not such a thing as best capacitor.
Every brand makes a lot of different caps designed for different application.
You could for example state that type X from brand Y will be a good fit in application Z.
You could put a top notch capacitor rated at 85°C near a heat sink of a class A amp and find out that the poor fellow only lasts a few years. It doesn't make it a bad capacitor, it just wasn't designed for that amount of heat.

The ones with % rating i have tested in my phono preamp where there no heat at all.
The preamp came with JAMICON caps inside of it this is the results that i have found .
I just wanted to see if anybody else has done the same sort of testing . Or what they think of certain caps good or bad.

As previous stated - it really depends on the application and design.
But here is what I like so far (beside the ones already mentioned)
CDE (380LX) in power supply - Nice, fast, firm and open sound.
The Russian Teflon caps (K72) 0,1uF as decoupling - Really great cap if used in the right place, One of the best caps and the price is the best part.
Clarity Caps (SA range, if space allows) - as crossover components and as output caps - Crystal clear sound with no tendency to sounding cold and hard..

I agree with Aarsoe on the russian teflon cap part.
When it comes to PSU caps for SS amps you will find it hard to find a cap that beats the Rifa PEH169's for performance, ruggedness and lifespan.
Everything is possible....to do the impossible just takes a little while longer.
