    Top 24 Cigars of 2021 | Tobacco Business Magazine

    Each year, Tobacco Business magazine recognizes the best cigars on the market today. Like other categories of the Tobacco Business Awards, those cigars that make it onto the list each year are nominated and then voted on by our readers—retailers, manufacturers and consumers of premium cigars—which leads to a diverse and inclusive list of cigar brands from manufacturers of all sizes and styles. This year’s Top 24 Cigars of the Year consist of 11 Nicaraguan cigars, seven Honduran cigars and six Dominican cigars, with a wide range of starting price points that range from $1.79 to $23. Here’s a look at Tobacco Business’ Top 24 Cigars of the Year list based on the votes each cigar received during the final round of voting earlier this year.
