Cigar contest winners

A family-owned company with a passion for premium, small batch, boutique cigars – what’s not to love? This family also happens to produce said cigars at the ambitious La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua (One of our favorites!). The close-knit, family atmosphere these companies have cultivated shows through in the products they create.

  • Atlantic Cigar Sale

For Arandoza, that includes the good ol’ Red, White, and Blue! This was the theme behind the brand’s first 3 cigar lines, releasing the Nicaraguan Habano-wrapped Blue Label, full-bodied, Dark Habano-wrapped White Label, and the new Mexican San Andrés Maduro-wrapped Red Label cigars. As can be expected, coming from La Zona, all 3 cigars in the Arandoza lineup are well-constructed and FULL-flavored! (That’s kind of an understatement).

We’d like to note that brand owner Robert Arandoza recently recovered from a successful knee surgery, Cigar Dojo (and Cigar Dojo community) would like to wish him the best while enjoying some Arandoza cigars!

This week’s contest theme is: Enjoy the weekend!

It’s Friday at last! Let’s all kick back and enjoy the weekend. And while you’re out enjoying the fresh, spring air – tossing frisbees, grilling brats, and sipping on cold beers, we want to see you add a cigar to the mix and share what you’re doing on the Dojo!

Some examples of entries may be:

  • Take a cigar to the zoo! (is that legal?)
  • Smoke a victory cigar after a 5k
  • Show us your weekend fishing cigar
  • Go on a weekend hike (and bring the Dojo!)
