Cigar ContestTHIS CONTEST IS OVER! This weeks winners were poppab and thomaswelliver. Congrats to the winners and thanks for all the great entries.

Fans of the Garcia family get ready, because this week we’re giving away exclusive My Father cigars, created in honor of Atlantic Cigars 15th anniversary.

This weeks contest theme is: Show your favorite cigar pairing.

While not quite as popular as wine pairings or cheese pairings, a good cigar pairing can make all the difference in your smoking experience. It can be anything from bourbon and chocolate, to diet Coke and pizza. It’s a common practice of the cigar enthusiast to discover how these combos can bring out the subtleties in our favorite cigars. So grab a stogie and show us what you like to pair it with to enhance your smoke.

While this week’s prizes will be selected at random by the Cigar Dojo staff, we would like to see creative pictures: cool camera angles, interesting filters, good composition, anything you can do to make those images POP! Find your inner-artist and show the Dojo what you’ve got.
