About

Since the first Cigar Trophy was presented in 1998, Cigar Journal’s awards have established themselves as the most sought-after distinction for exceptional cigars, brands, and service in the cigar world.

And since 2013, it’s up to the consumers to award prizes in the Best Brand, Best Cigar, Best Value and Best Accessory categories. Readers can submit their own nominations and participate in the voting process to decide which producers come out on top.

Our editorial team decides on just a few categories by itself: the awards for extraordinary art, charitable projects, advocacy groups and, of course, the Lifetime Achievement award.
