UPDATE: This contest is now over. Entries poured in from around the globe and nearly flooded the Dojo headquarters. There were so many entries it took hours to pick the eight finalists that were revealed on Smoke Night LIVE and then voted on by the Dojo community. In second place was “thatfreecray” and taking home this weeks grand prize was “superbri22”.
All the finalists can be viewed in the image below.
This week’s contest is brought to you by Cuenca Cigars. If the name sounds unfamiliar, take a moment and allow me to acquaint you with this boutique brand. Originally produced with a limited quantity in 2006, the Cuenca Premium became so popular that it is now in regular production. But that’s to be expected from a cigar blended by A. J. Fernandez, more on that later…
Based out of Hollywood, FL, Cuenca Cigars not only brings you fantastic, small batch cigars, but also a great shop to buy cigars online! Cuenca Cigars online cigar shop is tailored for the cigar enthusiast, offering quality, boutique blends – you won’t find a bad cigar on this site! Cuenca even carries the super-premium, rare cigars such as the God of Fire series and the famed OpusX.
Cigar Dojo users can take advantage of their special Dojo coupon code and save some extra cash! But best of all – they want to give you a chance to taste the Cuenca 5 Anniversary, so let’s get started shall we?
This week’s contest theme is: Take a “selfie”
2013 is now a thing of the past, and now it’s time for us to show our respects. 2013 had a lot to offer, after all, one of which being the rise of the “selfie”! Yes, Oxford Dictionaries even named it the word of the year, right ahead of “twerk” (thank you Miley [heavy sarcasm]). Not coincidentally, the word also happens to top many lists of words that need to go – but before we see these 2013 trends go the way of the buffalo, we thought we’d have a little fun.
For this week’s contest, post your best “selfie”, and try to include a cigar or two for good measure (twerking is not encouraged). Remember, the best entries involve some level of creativity, read the rules below for more information!

So let’s get started shall we?
And the PRIZES are….
Box of 10 Cuenca 5 Anniversary cigars
As I mentioned before, these Cuenca boutique cigars are blended by one of the greats, A. J. Fernandez! The 1st place winner will receive 1 box of 10 Torpedo 7″ x 54 Cuenca 5 Anniversary cigars. These are medium/full bodied smokes that will catch your attention straight away – from the sturdy construction, to its spicy/sweet burst of flavor. Expect a perfect draw with tons of smoke and loads of creamy chocolate, coffee, and spices. This is easily one of our favorite A. J. Fernandez blends, and We’re sure the winner of these beauties will agree!
Cuenca 5 Anniversary 5-Pack
Our 2nd place winner will be receiving a 5-pack of the robusto-sized Cuenca 5 Anniversary cigars as well as a solid, metal, “perfect cutter” Cuenca Cigars cutter! These are our favorite cigar cutters to use, with a sturdy, weighty feel in the hand and a crisp cut every time. This can easily become your go-to smoke and cigar cutter!
