Cigar Contest

Recently, we (at Cigar Dojo) have had the chance to get acquainted with a new and (shall I say) unorthodox cigar brand – Core Zero Cigars. Based out of Denver, Colorado, Core Zero is not only a cigar brand, but also a heavy metal band! A Los Angeles Music Awards nominee for Best New Metal Band of 2011, Core Zero has been described as “Melodic Mosh Pit’n Metal” – these guys are the real deal!

Making their intro onto the cigar scene, CZ Cigars debuted with a solid lineup of two (appropriately titled) sticks – Metal and Indie. These rock-inspired cigars come out of Estelí, Nicaragua, and are aged a minimum of three years, making for a well-rounded smoking experience from both offerings.

For this week’s contest, we’ll be doing something a little different. Seeing as how it’s not every day that you find a quality cigar brand that’s local to the Cigar Dojo headquarters, while simultaneously being a rockin’ metal band, we thought we’d end this contest with a live, metal show! Tune in this Friday night for a special episode of Smoke Night Live, featuring Core Zero (cigars and band).

This week’s contest theme is: Rock ‘n’ roll

This week, post your “rock ‘n’ roll” themed entries for a chance to win free CZ Cigars! What does that mean? Whatever you want (basically) – we want to see you a) rockin’ and b) smoking. Follow those guidelines and this contest should be an absolute blast!

Some examples of a contest entry may be:

  • Post a picture of you smoking with your favorite album
  • Show us your collection of instruments and cigars
  • Smoke a cigar while playing an instrument
  • Head bang with a cigar
  • Simply tell us your favorite rock band and cigar
  • Anything that involves rock ‘n’ roll and cigars

Our contest this week will be a bit more lenient on the guidelines, so have fun with your entries!

As Jack Black once said, “Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme!”

1st prize cigar giveaway

Box of 20 Core Zero Metal cigars

This week’s winner will receive a full box of 20 Metal cigars! At 5 x 52, these robusto cigars feature a really cool Nicaraguan habano maduro wrapper that shines with oils. This is a medium-bodied smoke with an aim on flavor. Toasty flavors meet a sweet chocolate core backdrop for a nice, flavorful smoke with top notch construction. This is a cigar that needs no relights or touchups, expect an ash that will stack nearly the full length of the cigar!
