2020 Cigar of the Year

1 comment


You’ll see some changes to our list this year from previous years. We have converted to a singular list for the site rather than publishing a list for each of the reviewers on the site. This is to create a more uniform list. It is still based on the review results and it is now calculated based on weighting the ranking of each reviewers individual list and then totaling that number for each cigar and then ranking the cigars based on the total scores from that weighting.

Also, the list is no longer a list that can change as we will no longer update the list with any reviews in the future that we do for the date window of 2020 releases. We set a target list of reviews and completed them and will keep it set to those.

To read the full review on any of these cigars, just click on the cigar name.

There are links to each reviewers list below the singular list to show full transparency.

Also, be sure to check out our video recap which is located just below the lists.


  1. Only cigars that were released between January 1, 2020 and October 31, 2020 are eligible. (Future years will use a November 1 to October 31 eligibility window)
  2. Cigar has to have been reviewed on the site.


Let us know your thoughts on our lists. We want to hear it all.

    Always value your cigar of the year lists and especially enjoyed this years video. You are always credible (you don’t back down) and the fact that it is a panel broaden the perspectives and different takes on the same cigars. Not infrequently I find you gents to be hilarious and you clearly enjoy each other. Kudos!!
