This week’s contest features some fine, boutique cigars courtesy of Nomad  Cigar Company. Nomad is a newcomer to the cigar scene that gained popularity rather quickly, due to owner Fred Rewey’s attention to social media and an eye for what the modern cigar smoker wants. You may better know him as @Godfadr (his Twitter handle), Fred even includes the Twitter moniker right on Nomad cigar bands!

Nomad Cigars focuses their efforts towards creating cigars with great tobacco, blending, and construction. These are indeed high-end, boutique cigars that enthusiasts will appreciate.

This weeks contest theme is: Smoke like a nomad

What better way to give away Nomad cigars then to smoke like one? For this week’s contest, we want to see you smoking on the go! Weather you’re in your car or on a walk with your dog, smoke in unfamiliar territory.

Some examples of nomadic smoking:

  • Smoke at the beach
  • Smoke on a horse
  • On a motorcycle (higher skill level required)
  • Smoke on your 5k run!
  • Smoke on a mountain

This week’s contest will be judged by the Cigar Dojo staff. Winner of the 1st place prize will be hand-picked by the Dojo staff, based on the most interesting, unique, and creative picture that we feel best encompasses the contest theme. The 2nd place winners will be selected at random!

Photoshopped or not, we want original images! i.e., an image taken specifically for this contest and created from scratch (no old photos, no images from Google).
