Cigar Dojo contest winners

Cigar Contest

Spend some time browsing the ever-popular Cigar Dojo app and you’ll notice the Dojo community gravitating to a select few boutique cigars – one of which is unfailingly a Hermosa cigar. Bring this name up to the average smoker and they’ll most likely have no clue what you’re talking about, but on Cigar Dojo, these cigars are practically currency! Why? Because they’re freakin’ tasty!

Cigar Dojo users take pride in discovering and bringing unknown cigar gems into the spotlight – Hermosa Cigars is one such gem. Owned by Mr. Scott de la Peña – @HermosaCigars (AKA the angriest man in the cigar world), Hermosa cigars showcase a true Cuban cigar profile and are produced in Nicaragua at the Fabrica Aromas de Jalapa factory, under the watchful eye of Noel Rojas.

This week’s contest theme is: Toast to freedom!

As we previously mentioned, Scott de la Peña has been called the “angriest man in the cigar world”, but that’s not entirely true – his anger is merely a passion for freedom! Scott believes in taking a stand and fighting for what’s right – therefore we’ve decided to share his passion for this week’s contest. Make a toast to freedom this week on Cigar Dojo!

Entering the contest is as simple as:

  1. Take a cigar-related photo and make a toast to freedom
  2. Post your photo to the Cigar Dojo app
  3. Include hashtag #toast2Freedom

Note: Contest entries should be new, i.e. created for this contest.

Our contest this week will run from Wednesday, December 3rd at 6pm (MST) until Friday, December 5th at 6pm (MST). The winners will be announced on Friday night during this week’s episode of Smoke Night Live – featuring Scott de la Peña of Hermosa Cigars.

And the PRIZES are….

1st prize cigar giveaway

Box of 20 Hermosa Tierra Santa cigars

There will be 2 winners of this week’s contest, both receiving a full box of 20 Hermosa Tierra Santa cigars! These Nicaraguan puros are made to commemorate the Nicaraguan growing region, using primarily Jalapa tobacco as well as tobacco from Estelí. The wrapper is a special corojo/criollo hybrid habano with a dark and oily appearance. At 6″ x 42, these corona cigars are the optimal vitola for the cigar’s special wrapper to deliver its peak performance – showcasing smooth flavors of butter, earth, and hay with an intriguing complexity.
