The two second place winners EACH winning a 5-pack of tasty DeSiena 321s were Walshy, and chrisbannister. Congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone who entered this weeks contest.

It’s that time again folks – we have a fresh box of hand-rolled, boutique cigars, just dying to be won by you – the lover of the fine, the fanatic of flavor, the freak of the leaf!

This week, it’s all about DeSiena cigars, a finely crafted boutique cigar with intentions of pleasing the more refined palate. DeSiena is a newly released brand by Adam DeSiena, owner of renowned cigar shop, Doc James Cigars. In collaboration with the master blenders at Alec Bradley Cigars, Adam spent two years fine-tuning his debut release, the DeSiena 312. The 312 is smooth as can be, designed to be medium in color, price, and body, yet full in craftsmanship.

This weeks contest theme is: Organize your humidor

Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, many cigars were smoked, BBQ’s were had, relaxation ensued, troops were honored, oh – and the Dojo community collectively donated over $1,000 in cigars to our military! And now it’s time to get back to the old grind – this week, let’s do a little spring/summer cleaning, reevaluate our collections, and expose our hidden stash of prized stogies!

Post a picture of your humidor/cigar collection on the Cigar Dojo app to be entered into this week’s contest.

Some examples may be:

  • Show us your top shelf!
  • Your coolidor setup (and maybe even how you built it)
  • Post your entire collection (whether it’s small, or ginormous)

Be creative! We love to see interesting cigar pictures, use a cool camera effect, angle, filters, lenses, and lighting! Anything to make your image stand out.
