The complete Top 25 for 2020, the full list. In 2020, Ministry of Cigars did reviews on 111 cigars. Cigars from six different countries. Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Indonesia, and Nicaragua. The majority of the cigars came from Nicaragua, 54 to be precise. The Dominican Republic is number two on the list with 31 cigars. Thirteen Cuban cigars were reviewed with the Punch Sir David as the best scoring Cuban cigar. Honduras has 11 reviewed cigars. There is one cigar from Costa Rica and one cigar from Indonesia in the 2020 line-up from Ministry of Cigars.

Compared to last year, almost the same number of Nicaraguan cigars were reviewed, 54 vs 58. The number of Cuban cigar reviews is double, from 6 to 13. Honduras went from 12 to 11. The cigars from the Dominican Republic went from 24 to 31. Costa Rica and Indonesia remained at one cigar each. This year Ministry of Cigars reviewed no Mexican cigars, compared to 3 in 2019.

A few cigars ended up with the exact same score, with 2 digits behind the comma. In those cases, price is the decisive factor. The lowest price point of the cigars with the same score wins.
