Cigar Aficionado’s Cover Challenge—Victory For Churchill

Sir Winston Churchill never shied away from a tough fight. The storied statesman, who led Britain to victory in the Second World War, reigned supreme in Cigar Aficionado’s Readers’ Choice Cover Challenge, and was named our most popular cover ever.

Churchill won his final matchup with John F. Kennedy to be crowned the king of Cigar Aficionado covers. It was his sixth straight victory. He faced Michael Strahan and Matthew McConaughey in the first two rounds, then George Burns, another cigar-puffing legend. He then beat The Sopranos before taking on the Fuente family in our Final Four, and then squared off against Kennedy in the championship.

Kennedy’s road to the finals had him up against Tom Selleck, then Jack Nicholson before the final showdown with Churchill.

The winner was chosen by the readers of Cigar Aficionado, and more than 38,000 voted in the contest.

One lucky reader will win a box of superb and well-aged vintage cigars from the personal humidor of Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher of Cigar Aficionado. The winner will be announced at cigaraficionado.com at a later date.
