Boveda is a cigar necessity, more than an accessory

Cigar Journal’s are the only awards in the cigar industry that are decided by public vote. So it’s cigar aficionados like you who recognized Boveda’s knowledge and commitment to the cigar industry.

Sean Knutsen, Boveda CEO said “It’s an absolute honor to win this award for a third time—especially since cigar consumers select the winners. Cigar lovers tell us over and over again how they trust only Boveda to protect their cigar investment. It’s cigar retailers who educate those cigar smokers on why Boveda’s 2-way humidity control is important to maintain an ideal environment for their delicate cigars. More and more people are finding a Boveda packet boxed with their favorite cigars. That’s coming directly from the manufacturers who use Boveda technology to augment their own packaging. When leaders in the industry count on Boveda to protect products that bear their name, that’s the true honor.”
