  • Joya de Nicaragua cigars
  • Atlantic Cigar Sale

Room101’s The Big Payback series has been a fan-favorite cigar since its launch in 2014, offering big flavors and big sizes to match—all in an effort to “pay back” fans and supporters of the edgy brand. And for 2016, Matt Booth and company have pulled back the reins a tad, showcasing a lighter, cleaner side of this flavor-forwards series. Don’t get us wrong, for a Connecticut, these are about as flavorful as it gets. But the occasion doesn’t always call for in-your-face, taste-bud-stomping flavors—sometimes the morning, afternoon, or early evening asks for a more smooth, creamy, and restrained experience—that’s when you introduce your palate to the new Big Payback Connecticut!

Contest Theme: Meet the Dojo community

This week, we’re returning our weekly Smoke Night Live show to its roots, hosting members of the Dojo community. We’ve always felt DOJO NATION is the best cigar community in the world, and this week we’re going to hear from a few Hall of Fame members.

So, in keeping with that theme, we’d also like to meet the rest of the ever-growing community. This week, flip those cameras around and give us your best cigar-themed selfie for a chance to win one of three awesome prizes from Room101 Cigars!

Use #cigarSelfie with entries

To enter the contest:

  1. Take a selfie (google it if need be) involving cigars
  2. Post your photo to the Cigar Dojo app
  3. Include hashtag #cigarSelfie

Grand prize

We will have three, count ’em, THREE grand prize winners this week, each going home with a bundle of goodies! Yes, each winner will receive a 15-count bundle of the new Room101 The Big Payback Connecticut cigars in 5×50 “Chavala” (robusto) size. Expect a smooth and creamy smoking experience, with highlights of vanilla, barnyard hay, and buttered bread—this is a more full-flavored Connecticut than you may be used to…
