D'Crossier cigar contest winners

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!

If you visit the Cigar Dojo app frequently, chances are you’ve seen a chic Costa Rican brand known as D’Crossier. What’s more, chances are you thought to yourself, “Wow, that looks like a good cigar!” Well sir, you’re not wrong—using some of the finest tobaccos and materials available, coupled with a cedar aging process that’s second to none, D’Crossier cigars truly are some of the finest available in today’s market.

New releases for D’Crossier this year include the 93-rated Flor de D’Crossier Selection No. 512 and the ultra-premium, small batch D’Crossier Lancero Selection 512.

This week’s contest theme is: Cigar Art

Half the fun of smoking cigars is getting creative and making those stogies look as sexy as possible, with artistic camera angles and retro filters! And considering Santana of D’Crossier Cigars is the master of artistic, luxurious packaging, presentation, and cigar craftsmanship, we thought we’d let you tap into your inner artist this week on Cigar Dojo.

No worries if you don’t have a photo studio… simply take a cool-looking cigar pic and slap on your favorite photo filter and voila—you’re ready to enter the contest!

Use #cigarArt with entries

Entering the contest is as simple as:

  1. Take an artistic cigar photo
  2. Post your photo to the Cigar Dojo app
  3. Include hashtag #cigarArt

Note: Contest entries should be new, i.e. created for this contest.

1st prize cigar giveaway

Box of 25 D’Crossier Golden Blend cigars

Our first place winner this week will receive a full box of 25 D’Crossier Golden Blend Aged 10 Years cigars in the ultra-premium 6 1/8 ” x 52 Torpedo vitola! In case you’ve missed the buzz surrounding these cigars on the Dojo, these sticks are money! In 2014, we rated the GB a solid 93. Typically, Santana has been known to blend mild-medium bodied cigars, but with this blend, he gave the cigars a nice kick of ligero, giving a much-welcomed strength to balance the subtle D’Crossier complexities. The palate is very Cubanesque, showing notes of sweet cream, roasted nuts, aged tobacco, and buttered toast.

Two second place winners this week will receive a 5-pack sampling of the very same D’Crossier Golden Blend Aged 10 Years cigars in the Torpedo vitola.
