  • Atlantic Cigar Sale
  • Joya de Nicaragua cigars

Now, JR has joined on as a Cigar Dojo sponsor and they have created a special Dojo sampler specially crafted, with the help of Master Sensei, to offer 9 cigars that the Dojo community will really love! The exclusive DOJO cigar sampler can be purchased by Dojo members for $34.95, but to get the party started, we felt we needed to give a few samplers away and give you a taste for blood, – er, cigars…

This week’s contest theme is: Cigar pairings

Fall is in the air, and that has us feeling like pairing our smokes with all-new things! Pumpkin Spice lattes, The Walking Dead, cider cocktails, even ginger pancakes have made their way into the mix. But we know everyone has their own special cigar pairings ritual, and we want to see it for this week’s contest!

Entering the contest is as simple as:

  1. Smoke a cigar
  2. pair it with something
  3. Get your Cigar Dojo app ready
  4. Post a pic of your cigar pairing on the Dojo
  5. Include hashtag #cigarPairing

Note: Contest entries should be new, i.e. created for this contest. Any mention of Cigar Dojo in your entry pictures is encouraged – e.g. Cigar Dojo cards, stickers, drawings, computer screens, etc…
