UPDATE: This contest is now closed
Our winners this week were selected by Skip Martin of RoMa Craft & Master Sensei on this week’s episode of Smoke Night LIVE, as well as the 3rd place winner, chosen by the Dojo community. Winners included Donald S. (1st), cantpar1 (1st), and Scott S. (3rd).
In our rapidly evolving industry, cigars have taken a page from the craft beer scene—the more boutique, the better! It’s all about the craft, building a product with care and attention to detail—which, of course, is ultimately translated into a fantastic smoking experience that big box brands simply cannot match.
No other brand incorporates this methodology quite like RoMa Craft Tobac. The brand, co-founded by Skip Martin & Michael Rosales, sets itself apart with big and heavy-hitting cigars—both in flavor and size (just check out their CroMagnon Femur)! This is achieved through the unique approach of owning their own factory, Nica Sueño, located in Estelí, Nicaragua. This, coupled with fantastic marketing and a focus on local brick & mortar cigar shops, has propelled RoMa Craft to one of the hottest, quickly-rising brands in the industry.
This week’s contest theme is: Arts & Craft
It’s arts & crafts hour on the Dojo! Get out your construction paper, Elmer’s Glue, and macaroni noodles, because we want to see your artsy side. In support of our love for the craft, we want to see your most artsy and creative entries this week—and we’ll be giving bonus point for those that include RoMa Craft in their entries in some way.
