We have developed the Cigar Wars Hall of Fame to honor the absolute best-performing cigars in the Cigar Wars database.

Because our Battle Rating system is fast-paced and can fluctuate throughout time, we commemorate cigars’ performances with “Cigar of the Week”, “Cigar of the Month”, and “Cigar of the Year” awards. This allows for better recognition that stands the test of time. Now, the Hall of Fame provides yet another method of more permanent recognition for top-performing cigars.

Cigar Wars Hall of Fame

Each month, we recognize the best-performing cigars in each category. If a cigar should win the “Overall Best-Performing Cigar” category 3 times within a rolling 12 month period, that cigar will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

A HOF cigar will be removed from the Cigar Wars battle upon HOF admittance. It will be eligible to return to battle after sitting out for a single, full month.

Originally, cigars were removed from battle after being admitted to the Hall of Fame in an attempt to spur competition amongst other brands that wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to appear at the top of the list (certain cigars would sit atop the list for months at a time). With the expansion of cigars to the data base over time, this is no longer the case and cigars that are added to the Hall of Fame will no longer be removed from the list for any period of time.

Hall of Fame Stars

When a cigar is admitted into the HOF, it will receive a “star badge” that it will wear into battle upon its return.

If the cigar is again admitted into the Hall of Fame, it will receive a second badge. This can occur a maximum of 3 times. If a cigar receives 3 badges, it will be honored with a special, elite plaque in the Cigar Wars Hall of Fame page.

Hall of Fame Bonuses

Hall of Fame cigars will receive an updated page, showcasing their medals as well as a more in-depth look at the cigar, upgraded photos, and potentially more…
