UPDATE: This contest is now closed

We had a blast celebrating our independence with the best cigar community out there! And we know you had just as much fun this weekend, from all the great entries.

Our 4 winners this week were: coachmo, gahri, Mike V., and Gil H.

By now, many are beginning to catch on to one the industry’s best held secrets: D’Crossier cigars. For years, these precious, Cubanesque beauties have been enjoyed by those “in the know”, but with Espinosa Premium Cigars now taking on the distribution of D’Crossier, the cigars are quickly gaining the attention they deserve!

Santana Diaz, owner of D’Crossier, has always focused on the upper-premium end of the cigar spectrum, with packaging, presentation, tobaccos, and blending that are second to none. But for 2015, Santana has unveiled something new… Flor de D’Crossier Selection No. 512! One look at these new cigars and you’ll notice something is different. A first in the industry (that we’re aware of), Santana has packaged the new 512 cigars in sealed, tin top cans, not unlike opening a can of mechanical snakes… only there’s delicious cigars on the inside! The cans are cedar-lined, having a jar-style presentation, with punched cellophane wrappers on the cigars (another great innovation!), allowing the tobacco to absorb the aromatic cedar in the jars.

Of course we have more info on these new D’Crossier cigars, because that’s what’s in store for this week’s contest prizes. Take a look below for more details on the contest and these tasty cigars…

This week’s contest theme is: Independence Day Celebrations

It’s time to set aside your beliefs on the current political climate and join together to celebrate our independence! This week, post your 4th of July celebrations for a chance at winning D’Crossier cigars!

Some examples of an entry may be:

  • Smoke a cigar while waving the old red, white, and blue!
  • Light your fireworks with a cigar
  • Smoke an American-made cigar
  • Anything to show your patriotism with cigars involved…

Sure, the 4th is a few days away, but that’s never stopped us before! Let’s get the festivities started a few days early and make this a truly great weekend of family, friends, cigars, and relaxation.

Our contest this week will run from Thursday, July 2nd at 4pm (MDT) until the night of Saturday, July 4th (MDT). The winners will be announced on Sunday afternoon.

Our prizes this week are…

1st prize cigar giveaway

Jar of 20 Flor de D’Crossier 512 Cigars

TWO 1st place winners this week will receive a full jar of 20 Flor de D’Crossier Selection No. 512 cigars in the 5 1/8″ × 44 Coloniales vitola! As mentioned previously, this is the newest creation of cigar master Santana Diaz, using tobaccos blended for the more affordable price range ($6 – $7 per stick). But Santana didn’t simply release a “cheap cigar”, that’s not in his nature. These are some of the most flavorful cigars you’ll find in this price range; with a classic, Cubanesque profile and an unmistakable sweetness to finish every puff! This may be you’re next go-to cigar!
