Cigar Contest


This week’s winners in no particular order are: george23, jr_iii, edleskowsky, brandonsr81 CONGRATS!

As many of you may know, cigar smoking can be quite the expensive hobby. Sure we’d all like walk-in humidors loaded with Cuban rarities, but that isn’t always the most viable option. Thus cigar smokers have become quite skillful in the art of maximizing cigars to their fullest potential. In the same way one might make use of every part of a freshly caught game, cigar smokers have been known to smoke every last ounce of a tasty stogie.

This weeks contest theme is: How far down can you smoke your cigar?

Make every inch of that stogie count with this weeks theme, some call it “nubbing” or “maxxing” the cigar; either way, we want to see you smoke your cigar ’til you can’t hold it no more! So find a paperclip, or any other creative means to hold that firey-hot cigar butt and show how far down you’re willing to go.

NOTICE: The Cigar Dojo is not responsible for burnt lips. 🙂

Rafaeli's CigarsOf course, “nubbing” a cigar isn’t the only way for us cigar lovers to save money! It’s a common goal just about every cigar smoker shares to find a stick that will satisfy our craving for flavor while going easy on the budget. Thus, Rafaeli’s Cigars make for a perfect pairing in this week’s theme of “maxing” our cigars potential. These affordable sticks will give you a blast of flavor for just about as cheap as they come!

At the Cigar Dojo we are very thankful and appreciative of our members, we want to pass on that thanks in the form of free cigars! Round 13 will run from Monday January 28th at 6PM (MDT) and will end Wednesday January 30th at 8PM (MDT) the winners will be announced at some point on Wednesday night or on Thursday afternoon.

So let’s get started shall we?
