And the PRIZES are….

1st prize cigar giveawayArturo Fuente Solaris (box of 10 cigars)
Free Solaris CigarIf you should be lucky enough to win 1st prize you better sit down because you won the “biggy”, the mondo awesome prize of prizes! Any cigar loving person would cut off his left testicle to win a prize like this (well, unless you only have one testicle then you might want to hold on to your remaining cojonu). A box of 10 Arturo Fuente Solaris cigars! Smoke Inn Proprietor Abe Dababneh approached the Fuente Family about making a Microblend, they decided this would be a perfect project for a small batch of cigars made over 6 years ago. Carlos Fuente Sr. had produced a small batch of belicoso cigars made from Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper that was uniquely light in its complexion. The cigars sat and aged for over six years. When smoked, we found the flavor mellow yet complex. One could definitely taste the quintessential Fuente flavor profile behind the elegantly aged smoke. Solaris will delight the palate of Fuente fans and collectors; especially those who like to age their cigars. Read our cigar review of the Solaris for more info on what to expect from this cigar. The winner of the Great Cigar Giveaway Round one gets a box of 10 of these delicious cigars! Arturo Fuente Micro Blend Solaris Cigars

Oh so close! You were this close to winning first prize (I’m holding my fingers super close together) but don’t be too sad because second place is still awesome! I know, I know… 2nd place is just another way of say “the first loser” but I’m a glass is half full kind of guy. Truth is you just can’t look any better than when you slip on your black Arturo Fuente Solaris T-Shirt and Smoke Inn hat. The shirt celebrates the Solaris Microblend cigar created just for Smoke Inn Smoke Shop. This shirt is 100% cotton yet 110% cool.Smoke Inn Cigar Hat with Solaris T Shirt

Third place eh? Well 3rd place doesn’t get the cigars and they don’t get the Smoke Inn hat so I can feel their disappointment but they still get the black Arturo Fuente Solaris T-shirt and that doesn’t suck. The shirt celebrates the Solaris Microblend cigar created just for Smoke Inn Smoke Shop. This shirt is 100% cotton and only a few animals were hurt in it’s production. Well… in truth, no animals we hurt making this shirt but several juicy steaks were consumed and that’s saying something.Arturo Fuente Solaris T Shirt

  • John culp

    I should win because my wife is trying to cut me off because she thinks I’m smoking to many cigars! I smoke 5-7 a week and she wants me to smoke 2-3 a week so she’s cutting me off for everyone I smoke after that! This would make it worth it for me to sneak in those extra cigars and not get laid.

  • SteveJ

    I should win because Arturo Fuente is my favorite brand of cigars! And I never win anything!

  • Iutbapdg

    I should win this contest because I am a true cigar lover! I will share them with my girlfriend and friends. I can help get this site going on the east coast and I frequent famous smoke shop and sometimes CI. I’ll spread the word of this awesome site that brings like minded passionate people together!

  • hombre

    Thanks for the contest.

    Not sure I have any better reason to win then anybody else. I love cigars and A.F. smokes especially. Haven’t had this one and would love to try and pass around to some other B.O.T.L. of course, will let them know how I got them.

  • I should win because I am so much more attractive than the rest of you and you need a sexy man like me to ensure product gets moved

  • martymoose

    Thanks for the great contest! I should win this bad boy because I am a huge Fuente fan and I deserve some great smokes!

  • Thanks for the contest. I retweeted the info.

    Don’t know that I have a good answer for why it should be me as the winner. I can’t complain, I’ve won a few here and there. Do wish a veteran or someone unemployed could win. Been there! I symphatize with those guys that have a hard time financing sticks, believe me.
    Best of luck to the winner, look like great smokes.

  • mdbulger

    I should win the Cigar Dojo give away because I jumped through all the hoops and because, quite honestly, I am AWESOME!

    • Alanda

      You Are AWESOME!!!

  • jy617

    Thanks for hosting this contest! I should win because there are a few guys I see on Twitter who win more contests than me. I must destroy them by winning more contests! You can help with this mission by picking me as the winner. Help me Master Sensei; you’re my only hope!

  • Skian

    Just like everyone else on this site, I love a good cigar. I would simply like to win just because I have a hard time being able to afford to go and buy cigars myself, so winning a give away would be a dream!
    I feel like there are some firefighters, soldiers or people fighting for our country out there that deserve to win these cigars more than I do, so if any hero’s post a comment, I would rather see them win it than me.

    If not though, and I do end up winning, I would gladly give some cigars to my Dad (a firefighter) and my uncle (fought in Afghanistan and Iraq).

    Thanks, and happy smoking everyone.

  • Garry Cawthorn

    Think I would b the perfect person for the first winner!!

  • dornelles

    When you give something away and the person who receives becomes very, very happy and thankful, you get a very pleasant and unforgetable satisfaction of having taken the right donating decision. Well, I want to provide this feeling for the cigardojo! Give me the first prize, and all this giveway will make such a sense to you! That´s why I should win! Thanks!

  • I need free stuff…..

  • Lancingtrumen

    Well someone has to win, and like our Dojo’s motto, no cigar left behind!
    Smoke on everyone

  • DarthBarf

    I should win this, well, because it’s me! You guys are based out of CO, right? Well, show some love for a fellow Coloradoan!

  • Michael Ray

    I would like to win because winning is fun!!

  • verbalx

    New to cigar smoking and don’t have much money to enjoy more than the budget sticks and it would make my day to win a box of premiums like this.

  • mrbeaton

    I feel that i deserve to win because i just want some damn free cigars. Honestly speaking nothing’s better than free.

  • Swede214

    Arturo Fuente, what a great smoke.

  • Bxcigrfan

    I am a seventh degree rainbow belt from the shoalin chamber of death and I believe I would be a great addition to the cigar dojo where I can train to become 1st prize degree smoke belt.

  • jrfjr

    Arturo Fuente has always put out great cigars…I would love to be a winner to try these new sticks!

  • randy

    would love to win a box of AF Solaris Cigars!

  • Andysc83

    I would love to win this contest for simple fact that I would like to share what I win with friends. When I first started smoking, my friends gave me lots of rare sticks. I would love to return the favor!


  • I am one of the very few cigar shops and ‘lounges’ in New Zealand (according to Cigar DOJO!) and a prize pack like this would be a great way to share cigars with my clientele and promote the Cigar Dojo in New Zealand and build up the cigar smokers!

    Any prizes won will be used as giveaways to my followers/ clients.

    Awesome Website!

  • Jeff

    I want to win because I never win these giveaways…


    winning will be great so why not me!!!!

  • Bellanegra

    Oooooh. These sound delicious. I would love to try them.

  • senorcigar

    I should win because good things happen to good people. I’m good people..

  • BigEasySmoke

    I need to win these sticks simply because my finances suck and I lost 75 sticks to Hurricane Isaac

  • Paul Carlson

    It’s apparent that the only way I can try this is to win a box as my local b&m doesn’t feel the need to carry this stick.

  • reeps

    Why ask Why? I’d love to try Fuente Solaris cigars!!!

  • andmer

    Would love to have a box of these stogies to try and enjoy!

  • shybearhouston

    I would love to win this box of cigars and share them with my fellow BOTL (BUT, I won’t) hoping for points for honesty…..

  • Coop

    I would love to win this box of cigars and share them with my fellow BOTL on !!!!

    (shameless self promtion!!!)

    Great site, and great reviews!!!

  • Mike

    I’m a Cigar Dojo fan and a Fuente smokin’ man!

  • I would love to win this giveaway, those Fuentes look amazing!!

  • pato1001

    I should win the box of cigars because I’ve been smoking cigars for over ten years now and have entered many a cigar contest and have yet to still win a single contest! Whether it be online or in my local tobacconist shops! I say its about time! Thanks for your consideration!

    Sincerely: Pato1001

  • cmdr


    I deserve to win because. Just because.

  • 2manygadgets

    I will smoke the shiznit out of these babies!

  • “My favorite cigar is a free one…”

  • burnin_brass

    Well, I don’t believe I’m entitled to win. It’s not like you owe it to me. 😀

    However, I’ll gladly celebrate the outstanding charity and enormous generosity of the Triad with a smokin Solaris.


    ps – Solaris rocks UNIX.

  • Why should I win? I hate self promotion but two reasons:

    I’m in Canada so it’s tough to get a hold of a lot of newer cigars. Usually have to get them through US friends.

    I’d love to review them.

  • MattSRoss

    I’m getting married on Friday and I can’t think of a better wedding gift than that box of cigars!

  • Loyd McVae

    I like free stuff!!!!

  • FawltyTowers

    As a newcomer to the cigar world I have a lot to learn about good and bad when it comes to cigars. Were I to win I would at least learn about one of the ‘good’ cigars that can be had.

    One thing I have already learned is that the CigarDojo guys have provided me with an app that connects me with cigar lovers all over the world. I have learned more about cigars from these wonderful people than I could have learned just reading around on the internet. The feedback from everyone has been invaluable and awesome. To tell the truth, I feel like I’m part of an exclusive club. I can only hope to one day smoke with all my new friends. I would definitely break out my delicious box of Arturo Fuente Solaris’, or at least wear my cool shirt!

    Thanks for the good times Dojo!

  • dambus

    i think i should win because being a new guy to cigar smoking this would be a great step in the right direction! i’ve heard nothing but great things about that brand and i’m also looking for a nice humi to store my ciars i have now and all my future ones as well 🙂

  • Scott Turk

    I believe that I should be blessed w/ these beautiful, angelic, hypnotic cigar. Because if I were blessed with being the winner I would simply take 2 sticks out 4 myself & put the rest in a silent auction 4 my fellow Marine Corps League members & fellow veterans. So we can raise funds 2 continue programs 4 veterans that are unable 2 leave the VA hospitals & try 2 bring some light, a smile & let them know they’re not forgotten but honored & be humbled in their presence.

  • nnnenadovic

    Just because…it would be totally awesome! 🙂

  • 007MI6

    Deserve to, I don’t know. But after the year I have had and continuing to work through a 10 month probate, and becoming a landlord for six commercial and residential properties…I sure could use some good smokes for those times that I can find to relax. Thanks for the contest guys!

  • heathwhiteaker

    I deserve to win because my humidor is looking awfully light at the moment. I would enjoy these cigars very much.

  • Nick Fatino

    I’ve lived thru the fall off a 4th floor balcony, head on car crash, a pulmonary embolism. I’ve lived thru the death of my 4 day old son, psoriatic arthritis & Fibromyalgia. At 52 years, still happy, still here. And looking forward to smoking an Arturo Fuente Solaris. maybe that’s why I’m still here. 🙂

  • SecretAgentMang

    While I don’t believe that I deserve to win, I think that it would be great if I did; not for myself, but for my friends that I will drop the bomb on! I would love to have cigars to pass around to my buddies when we get together this winter being apart for work. This will really seal the deal for a great holiday herf. Great site, contest, and thank you for the consideration!

  • flasmoke

    I deserve to win because I’m a single dad and as of late it’s been harder to buy premium cigars(which I’ve become use to smoking). Also living in South Florida, I am a loyal customer of Smoke Inn. Abe has one of the best stocked B&Ms in all of S Fla. I wanna thank your site for giving me a chance to win this great prize!

  • Ron Gadzalinski

    I deserve to win this Great Cigar Giveaway because I am a cigar loving man of very humble means. I buy the best cigars that I can afford when I have extra money available but I always look for “specials” and budget-priced cigars to be able to have cigars on hand to smoke. However, I often feel “left out” from those who can afford to buy quality, higher-priced, highly-rated cigars on a regular basis. Life is too short to just “settle” for budget cigars and miss out on the really great cigars that exist. My life would really be enhanced to win a box of these great Arturo Fuente Solaris cigars and I would be HONORED to be the winner! And, I would gladly share some of these cigars with some of my less fortunate friends to enjoy as well.

  • Jacksoup

    I love Fuente cigars haven’t had a bad one yet. I share with my brothers all the time. So if I were to win a box of Arturo Fuente Solaris cigars you would have three winners not just one..

  • golfbum

    Great cigars. Free. What stogie fanatic wouldn’t want some great cigars for free? Not this guy! In this election season, I hereby submit my name in nomination for winner of the Great Cigar Giveaway!

  • ExNukeSquid

    I am still relatively new to cigars (only 5 years so far) and the Dojo, but I love trying new brands. A box of these Solaris’s would give me a new stick and brand to try as well as share with my dad, another avid stogie smoker. I always look forward to sharing and discussing new ones with him over a beer and good memories.

  • bigboep

    I should win the Cigar Dojo Great Cigar Giveaway because… I’m awesome!!! Just kidding. Seriously, i love cigars and hope to continue to exercise my right to smoke as long as i can. Don’t tread on me by taking away my cigars! As Mark Twain said… “If i cannot smoke cigars in heaven, I shall not go!”

  • stormshadow

    I should win the Great Cigar Giveaway because I just got into cigars not too long ago and would love to try a new cigar. The Dojo is helping me learn the what it is like to be a BOTL with a never ending “Global Herf” What better way to partake than with some free cigars from the first great cigar giveaway!

  • Bret

    I believe that I am a deserving candidate for winning the first giveaway because of my faithfulness to the Dojo. Been there since the start. Also the promoting that I have been doing behind the scenes is bringing all my cigar loving friends over to the dojo. Lastly, I’ve never had a Solaris. The only thing better than a Fuente Solaris is a free one.

  • Dan

    I should win because I like to smoke cigars, and I don’t smoke Fuente cigars that often. Also, because I want to try that smoke, and this will probably be the only way to get my hands on one.

  • Cigarbuddha

    I love a contest and who does’nt want to win…nobody right! I just want to say I enjoy myself at CigarDojo, nice folks, friendly atmosphere, great interaction. Arigato

  • I should win the great cigar giveaway because cigars are my life! I have been smoking them for over seven years now and I can’t imagine my life without them. I have smoked hundreds of blends, brands, sizes and shades and the Arturo Fuente Solaris would be a great addition to my collection of cigars that I have smoked!

    Richard Boudreau

  • maxxrocket

    I should win the Great Cigar Giveaway because i’m very active at the Dojo.I’ve been enjoying cigars for awhile, but it’s never to late to learn. The Dojo is the best cigar app because it has one thing others don’t…FELLOWSHIP.
