Update: This contest is now closed
We received a mass amount of entries this week, possibly more than ever before in Dojo giveaway history! And after hours of sifting through all the great entries, we narrowed them down to 4 winners – GreyBeard (2nd place), Miles C. (2nd place), SmokingGun (2nd place), and Squeeze43 (1st place)!
Cohiba has launched its first Nicaraguan cigar, consisting of some of the most choice Nicaraguan tobaccos available – debuting as one of, if not the best Cohiba cigar to date!
At this point some of you are thinking, “Wait, is this a Cuban or not?” The answer is no. Cohiba is a brand name owned by two separate entities – one being Cubatabaco (launched in 1968), the other is owned by General Cigar Co. (premiering in 1978). Because of the invasion of communism in Cuba during the ’50s and ’60s, Cubans fled to other areas of the Caribbean, many retaining their brand names they created in Cuba. And as the US has an embargo in place on Cuba, these duplicate brands are allowed to exist, despite Cuba’s wishes.
General Cigar Company’s Cohiba brand has primarily operated out of the Dominican Republic since its existence, and now, for the first time, has ventured into the rich soils of Nicaragua. Recently, we reviewed the new Cohiba Nicaragua, and let’s just say it got the Dojo seal of approval! Now we’d like to share some with the Dojo nation…
This week’s contest theme is: Cigar Weekend
We don’t want you thinking too hard on this week’s entries – just have some fun and relax! That’s why our contest theme this week is simply “smoke through the weekend”. All weekend (including Friday), we want you to kick back, grab your favorite beverage, and smoke a ton of cigars – Dojo style!
Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative with it…
Some examples of entries may be:
- Smoke a cigar while watching the Pro Bowl
- Smoke at the zoo!
- Take a mini vacation and bring Cigar Dojo along for the ride
- Anything weekend-related!
We just want you to enjoy the weekend with us at Cigar Dojo, and hopefully win some incredible cigars!

And the PRIZES are….
Box of 16 Cohiba Nicaragua cigars
1st Prize this week is a full box of the new Cohiba Nicaragua, a premium blend incorporating Nicaraguan fillers and binder, and using a Honduran Colorado Oscuro wrapper (close enough to Nicaragua, right?). These 16-count boxes contain the N54 5.5″ x54 vitola of this Nicaraguan-born blend. We were pleased in our recent review of this cigar, highlighting its brilliantly well-balanced profile. For a Nicaraguan, it’s not overly spicy, showing well-rounded notes of aged tobacco, cocoa, dark chocolate, cream, and warm caramel. Our first place winner will be going home happy!
Cohiba Nicaragua 5-pack
We’re going to have a lot of winners this week, as there are three 2nd place prizes! All 2nd place winners will receive a 5-pack of the same Cohiba Nicaragua N54 cigars.
NOTE: This week’s winners will be picked by the Cigar Dojo staff. We will be judging the entries on artistic quality (best images), creativity, and originality. Entries and extra credit will add to your chances, giving you a better shot at being picked.
