UPDATE: this contest is over. Based on this contest the ol’ USA is still in good hands as we saw plenty of firepower from DOJONATION. The winner’s of the contest were picked live and at random on Smoke Night LIVE. Congrats to Adam Koenig who won the grand prize and Rob_RC and jmoore04 who won the runner up prizes.

Cigar ContestYou may be reading the title of this post thinking, “There’s a new Dogma cigar?!”, or possibly, “Where’s Gunwood USA?”, but most likely you’e saying, “Please shut up and tell us how to win Dogma cigars…” Well that’s exactly what I intend to do!

This week’s contest is a little out of the ordinary. You see, typically our contests are sponsored by cigar manufacturers, cigar retailers, and occasionally Cigar Dojo’s own humidor… But this week we’re stepping into uncharted territory, bringing you, the cigar-crazed community, a taste of fiction!

That’s right, a close friend of the Dojo, Gordon Carroll, has published his 1st novel – GUNWOOD USA, and we’d like to share it with you! Gordon Carroll served as a US Marine for 8 years and currently is a local K9 Officer with over 29 years of service (18 as a K9 Officer). Using personal experiences from a long and exciting career, Carroll now introduces his first Mystery Thriller, GUNWOOD USA –

GUNWOOD USA, the smallest wildest city this side of Hades. 1.6 miles of bars, strip clubs and gambling joints. Where the cops are tough and their K9s tougher. Sarah, just back on the force after suffering a nervous breakdown, has a new rookie fresh from the Marines. He’s fast, handsome and lightning with a gun, but he has a secret. Add to the mix a savant detective, a midget stripper, a vigilante robber and an international assassin and you get a lethal combination that is GUNWOOD USA. Gordon Carroll

Our 1st place winner this week will receive a new, sealed bundle of these special cigars. Drew Estate is known for making some of the finest and most sought-after cigars in the world, including the Liga Privada Unico Series, the rare “pig” vitola cigars, and now, the Undercrown Dogma. This special blend is the only box-pressed Liga ever produced and incorporates a similar blend to the legendary Corona ¡Viva! blend, using an extra dose of that powerful Ligero tobacco. Reviews of the Undercrown have described the cigar as “incredibly rich“, “sweet and syrup like“, “great construction“, “Box Worthy“, and “the richest and sweetest Mexican San Andreas I have had“.
