UPDATE: This contest is over. The winners were picked live on the air during Smoke Night LIVE. Out of the 100’s of entries the following entries were awarded the win….

FDG Cigars (Flor de Gonzalez) has recently celebrated a significant milestone—20 hard-earned years since the brand’s humble beginnings, during the fiercely competitive era of the great cigar boom. It was a time when cigars of widely varying qualities came jumping onto the scene from all over the globe. Only handful of these startups survived the years following—weeding out the legitimate brands from those simply looking for a quick buck. It’s safe to say, FDG is the real deal.

With the FDG 20 Aniversario, the brand pays tribute to their early days, recreating two similar blends to that of their first two cigars—using Connecticut shade and Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers.

The Dojo community will have their chance to try these special releases from FDG this week, as we’ll be giving away these cigars as well as a few others from this boutique manufacturer!

Contest Theme: Spring Break

It’s spring break! Okay, sure, we “adults” don’t get to celebrate it the way we used to, but maybe we can live vicariously through the Dojo community this week and forget about the fact that we still have to work in the morning…

Post your spring break-themed cigar contest entries for a chance to win free cigars on the Dojo this week.

Use #springBreak with entries

To enter the contest:

  1. Take a photo involving the “spring break” theme

Grand prize

There will be TWO 1st place winners this week – one will win a full box of FDG 20 Aniversario in Connecticut Shade – the other will win 20 Aniversario cigars in Connecticut Broadleaf maduro! Both boxes contain 20 cigars in 6.5″ x 52 Torpedo vitola.
