Santiago Cigars contest winners

Santiago Cigars is a relatively new company to the American scene but they are well established in Nicaragua as Santiago de los Caballeros. In 2010, a few cigar lovers left their jobs (financing cigar companies) to make Nicaraguan cigars for Nicaraguans. They teamed up with the Plasencia Family to produce them and set their base of operations in Leon, Nicaragua.

Now, Santiago Cigars enters the American market with a full suite, including a Connecticut, Habano, and Maduro-wrapped offerings – a smoke for every enthusiast’s palate. Previously, Cigar Dojo has reviewed the Santiago Habano, rating the cigar an impressive 89 score. Today we turn our sights to their Mexican San Andrés Maduro, which is described as rich, dessert-like full flavors and body!

This week’s contest theme is: Mad 4 Maduros!

Considering we’re giving away one fine selection of juicy, dark, sweet, and chocolatey maduro cigars this week, we want to see how mad you’ll go for a MADuro…

Post your maduro craziness on the Dojo this week. Show us your maduro collections, your favorite all-time maduro, or best yet, show us how crazy you’ll go for a good maduro!
