UPDATE: This contest is now closed
We had a blast getting retro this week on the Dojo, and there were some really great entries, with many of our winners being first-time winners on the Dojo. Congratulations to cigarsmn, Deford, Nicklaw17 (1st prize), and Jeremy H. (1st prize)!
For Rocky Patel’s latest release, Prohibition, the brand not only gives a righteous jab to the FDA and their overbearing efforts to limit our freedoms, they also manage to recall an era of bootlegging, speakeasies, flapper girls, jazz music, and an onslaught of steampunk-infused inventions. A pretty fantastic decade, if it weren’t for that whole Prohibition/Great Depression aspect…
Previously, we took a look at the Mexican San Andrés Prohibition cigars, this week, we’re providing the alternative – the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro-wrapped Prohibition cigars.
This week’s contest theme is: Get Retro!
In the spirit of the Roaring Twenties, this week we want to retrofit the Dojo! That’s right, get out your most hipster photo editing apps and give your cigars some vintage flare. We encourage you to run with this theme – maybe you just apply a few retro filters, maybe you dress up in full 1920’s attire… That’s your call!
Some examples of an entry may be:
- Smoke a cigar paired with authentic moonshine
- Make the most authentic retro cigar image you can muster!
- Smoke at an old school speakeasy
Use #getRetro with entries
Entering the contest is as simple as:

Our prizes this week are…
Rocky Patel Prohibition 16-count Jar
There will be TWO 1st place winners this week, both will receive a full jar of 16 Rocky Patel Prohibition cigars in Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper! Prohibition cigars are created in only one size – 6.5″ x 52 Toro, this ensures the optimal smoking experience, blended for the size to perfectly compliment the palate. With the Broadleaf maduro, expect to find rich flavors of coffee, earth, dark chocolate, and spicy undertones to give the palate a nice balance.
With a unique packaging presentation, Rocky has bundled the cigars into 16-ct mason jars, complete with loose tobacco on both ends to keep the cigars secure. This is a really nice presentation, something you’ll want for the collection.
Rocky Patel Prohibition 5-pack
There will be 2 second place winners this week. Both winners will receive a 5-pack sampling of Rocky’s new Prohibition cigars in the Connecticut Broadleaf variety!
