Grand Prize

Our grand prize winner this week will receive a MAJOR prize worthy of, dare we say, the Major League… (sorry, had to get a pun in there somewhere). Each winner will receive a full box of the new Big Papi by David Ortiz. The cigars feature a Dominican-based blend and are crafted at El Artista’s boutique factory in the DR—blended by Ortiz himself (along with the knowledgable guidance of El Artista’s master blenders) to suit his ideal palate.

The cigars were made in a singular heavy-hitting 6″ × 54 toro size that will smoke through nearly an entire baseball game! Cigar Dojo went in-depth with this premium blend in January, awarding the cigar an impressive 90-point rating, saying:

Fittingly, the profile is big and robust, with loads of spices and hearty leathers and earth that’ll really “stick to your ribs”! […] the draw was nearly perfect, giving a satisfactory amount of smoke on every puff. Altogether, Big Papi is a traditional experience that’s been amped up a few notches—a fun smoke that should only require minimal [smoking] experience to be best enjoyed.

1st Place Receives:

  • Big Papi cigar box
  • El Artista single-torch lighter
  • El Artista “Exactus” cigar ashtray
