The Cigar Trophy Awards 2022

Effective immediately until June 14, you can nominate your favorite products. Please visit to be part of this unique initiative.

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 Accessory | Best Art | Best Lounge


The winners are selected in two phases:

Nominations: Consumers submit their favorites in each category June 1–14, 2022

Voting: Consumers choose the winner from the shortlist June 27–July 11, 2022

Between June 1–14 2021, 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 (June 27 to July 11 2022). This year, you can also submit your favorite piece of cigar art to be nominated for the Best Art Cigar Trophy.

During the final voting round from June 27 to July 11 2022, 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 address) 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 15th September 2022 LIVE at InterTabac in Dortmund. The ceremony will be streamed 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 at the ceremony:

Charity & Community | Ambassador | Lifetime Achievement
