UPDATE: Apparently beer and cigars are a staple for Dojo members as we had a TON of entries this week. After picking 8 finalists we allowed Dean Parsons to pick the grand prize winner live on our Friday night show and he selected Powderhound as the winner of the bundle of Epic Cigars. Gahri and Simon were the two runner-up prize winner. Congrats to the winners and thanks to all the folks who entered.
As the title reads, this week’s contest is sure to be EPIC! “Why?” you ask, because our featured brand this week is (you guessed it) Epic Cigars.
Created in the Dominican Republic, Epic Cigars introduced their first blends in 2012, featuring the Epic Corojo Reserva and the Epic Maduro Reserva. Bold packaging meets ultra-high quality tobaccos, aging, and blending – bringing a truly fantastic smoking experience to the cigar market.
Brand owner Dean Parsons has worked fervently to introduce the Epic name to cigar fanatics. This is a man that believes in his work whole-heartedly and it shows. Now, he has given us the chance to offer a nice sampling of these tasty smokes to you, the cigar fanatics.
This week’s contest theme is: Beer and cigars
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? That’s because it is! This week’s contest is all about enjoying two of the finer things this world has ever known: beer and cigars.
But what if I don’t drink beer?

This week’s contest will run from Wednesday, June 18th at 5PM (MDT) and will end Friday, June 20th at 6PM (MDT). The winners will be announced on Friday night during the Smoke Night Live show, featuring Dean Parsons of Epic Cigars.
So let’s get started shall we?
And the PRIZES are….
Bundle of 20 Epic Maduro Reserva cigars
Our first place winner this week will win a new, sealed brick of Epic Maduro Reserva cigars! This thing is no joke – sized at 6 x 60, these Gordo maduros are big, bold, and tasty. Through our many taste tests here at the Cigar Dojo headquarters, one thing that’s always struck us about this smoke is its incredible construction. Not often does one find a dark maduro (practically oscuro) cigar with such an amazing burn! Mouthfuls of chewy smoke and flavor last well over an hour, never requiring a touchup of any kind! Expect a pungent nose of barnyard, blue cheese, and manure on this beast of a cigar. The flavors are earthy with a touch of spice, eventually transitioning to a delicate, buttery sweetness. Medium body and medium strength, our 1st place winner will enjoy smoking this cigar on nearly any occasion, we recommend smoking for dessert.
Two 5-packs of Epic Maduro Reserva cigars
There will be two second place winners this week, both will receive a 5-pack sampling of the very same, Epic Maduro Reserva Gordo cigars.
NOTE: This weeks winners will be picked by Epic Cigars’ Dean Parsons. We will be judging the images on artistic quality and best overall image that fits in this weeks theme. Entries and extra credit will add to your chances, giving you a better shot at being picked.
