side-by-side-throw-down-cigarsDENVER, CO (MAY, 21 2015) – Cigar Dojo, Cigar Federation, and Viaje Cigars have come together for an unorthodox cigar project, the likes of which have never been seen in today’s cigar industry. Combining the skill sets of two of the industry’s leading cigar communities, as well as the unique and highly sought-after characteristics of Viaje Cigars, Cigar Dojo and Cigar Federation have pitted themselves against each other in the cigar face-off of the century – introducing Throw Down.

The epic battle officially begins May 21, 2015, with this press release and continues June 5th when the cigars go on sale. The concept is simple: each opponent has selected, in conjunction with Viaje Cigars, a unique cigar blend to represent their community. Purchasers of this unique project will then judge the outcome, receiving five cigars selected by Cigar Dojo and five cigars selected by Cigar Federation. Not only will consumers judge the victor, they’ll have a say in the outcome; voting for their favorite blend at the new dedicated site – throwdowncigar.com.

Cigar blends have been developed from the ground-up by Andre Farkas, the mastermind behind Viaje Cigars. After creating a handful of premium blends to be contenders for the final product, the cigars were then sent to both opponents – Cigar Dojo & Cigar Federation. Each brand then selected their preferred blend to represent themselves in the final throw down battle.

Throw-Down-Bundle-shot-mockupSoft-packaged in bundles of 10 cigars, Throw Down will arrive with 5 cigars from each brand, using a 5.5” x 52 robusto vitola. Cigar Federation’s blend uses a San Andrés Mexican maduro wrapper over an undisclosed filler/binder blend. Cigar Dojo has chosen a Criollo 98-wrapped blend, using an undisclosed filler and binder. Coming in at $90 per 10-pack, Throw Down cigars will be made available exclusively June 5th through the Cigar Federation online store – http://store.cigarfederation.com/.

“There is no doubt that the Dojo cigar will win this battle, after all… I am the Master Sensei.” stated Eric Guttormson, owner of Cigar Dojo. He continued, “I will let you in on a dirty little secret, both cigars are awesome and the real winner is the cigar smoker that buys a couple bundles of these.”

Logan Lawler, owner of Cigar Federation, stated – “While I am really excited about both blends, we knew instantly the blend we wanted to represent us for Throw Down and I have no doubt it will win the battle.”

    I’m all over these!
    I am a FedHead but I’m a huge Criollo fan so this is going to be tough!

    • You are going to love both blends. The FedHead cigar is awesome but of course I’m partial to the Criollo myself. 🙂

      • Charlie H.

        I am also partial to Criollo, especially Aganorsa Criollo…but being a FedHead I may have to get my Mexican palate on 😉
