Update: This contest is now closed
We had a ton of great entries this week, and our two winners were belltold12 (second place) and Bob L. (grand prize winner). Congrats to the winners and thank you to our sponsor MoyaRuiz, as well as all that entered the contest!
Any Dojo fanatic knows the name La Jugada – not only is it a fantastic cigar, but Dojo members take pride knowing they made the cigar their own. It was early 2013, and not only had the Cigar Dojo app recently launched, but MoyaRuiz had released their 1st cigar – La Jugada Prieto. The Dojo community instantly latched on to the product, reveling in the excitement of discovering an unknown brand… that just so happened to be quite tasty!
It was later that year that MoyaRuiz introduced the follow-up–La Jugada Habano, which went on to win the 2013 Cigar of the Year Award. And while many claim the Habano is the best La Jugada, an equal number prefer the Prieto, noting the fact that age does wonders to this particular cigar. In fact, Cigar Coop recently awarded the Prieto #4 on its list of Best Aged Cigars for 2014. We’ve been aging a nice selection of Prietos for some time, and now we want to share them with you, Dojo!
This week’s contest theme is: Game On!
If you’ve ever run into MoyaRuiz founders Danny Moya or Nelson Ruiz, you know these guys are crazy about anything game-related: dominos, poker, you name it! In fact, La Jugada translates to “the move” or “the play”, in reference to a game or sport. For this week’s contest, we want to see your game-related posts.
Some examples of entries may be:
- Smoke a cigar while playing poker
- Head out to the race track
- Watch your favorite team on the big screen (with your favorite cigar)
- Beat your mom at a game of Crazy Eights
If it’s game related and cigar related, we want to see it!

And the PRIZES are….
Box of 20 La Jugada Prieto cigars
Now we’re getting to the good stuff! Our 1st place winner this week will receive a full box of 20 La Jugada Prieto cigars in a 6 x 52 Toro vitola. As previously mentioned, these babies have some age! The La Jugada Prieto uses a particularly dark and oily San Andrés wrapper, one that provides a ton of flavor, but may not always burn as you’d like, that is, until it gets the aging it deserves! After a few months in the humidor, these sticks are fantastic, rounding out some of the sharper flavor notes, allowing the smooth, medium-bodied complexities to shine through. And that’s only with a few months age, these cigars have more than a year on ’em!
La Jugada Prieto 5-pack
The 2nd place winner this week will receive a 5-pack sampling of La Jugada Prieto in the Doble Corona vitola (7.5″ × 49). These cigars have the same age as our 1st place prize, but in the Doble Corona format (my favorite Prieto vitola)!
NOTE: This week’s winners will be picked by the Cigar Dojo staff. We will be judging the entries on artistic quality (best images) and creativity. Entries and extra credit will add to your chances, giving you a better shot at being picked.
