Starting Time GMT



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 select the Awards for: Best Brand, Best Cigar, Best Value, Best Accessory and Best Lounge. Readers can submit their 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: Outstanding Art, Charity & Community, Ambassador and, of course, Lifetime Achievement.
