Cigar Fans Have Crowned the Winners of the 2021 Cigar Awards

The Cigar Awards are an annual celebration of the best that the cigar industry has to offer. You may ask “who decides what’s best?” In this case, it’s cigar enthusiasts like you and I! Every year, fans send in their top picks to Cigar Journal. Based on those votes, nominees are selected in each category for Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Honduras, as well as a spot for other countries. The final winners are voted on out of the top 5 nominees in each category (for every country).

If you’re curious as to which brands, cigars, and blenders walked away winners, Best Cigar Prices has you covered. Below we’ve outlined the winners of all of the fan-chosen awards, as well as a few other accolades that were given.
