The CIGAR TROPHY AWARDS
The Cigar Trophy Awards were created as a gesture of appreciation – as a thank you for the hard work that goes into every single premium cigar, into every cherished accessory and into every feel-good oasis where we can enjoy a cigar in a pleasant atmosphere.
After the awards were initiated in 1998, the Cigar Trophies soon proved to be the most coveted awards in the cigar world. After all, it is the only prize awarded by the public in this sector.
:The categories for the Consumer Awards are
Best Brand | Best Cigar | Best Value | Best Boutique Brand | Best Accessory | Best Lounge
Starting Time GMT

The winners of the Consumer Awards are selected in two phases:
Nominations: May 15 - June 18, 2023
Voting: July 3 - July 16, 2023
Between May 15 - June 18, 2023, passionados are welcome to nominate their favorite cigars (from various countries of origin), cigar accessories and cigar lounges. The top 5 nominees will move on to the final voting (July 3 - July 16, 2023).
During the final voting round from July 3 - July 16, 2023, consumers choose the winners from the short lists of the top 5 nominees in each category.
Each consumer has 1 vote both in the nomination and voting phase. Multiple nominations or votes (per IP adress) will be eliminated. Manufacturers and operators of lounges can encourage their fan base to nominate or vote for their offers. However, no bonuses may be offered in this context.
The Award Ceremony will be held on 14th September 2023 at InterTabac.
The ceremony will be streamed LIVE on Facebook.
A separate set of awards (the Jury Awards) is determined by the Cigar Journal editorial staff. The winners in these categories will also be awarded in the ceremony:
Best Art | Charity & Community | Ambassador | Lifetime Achievement
