UPDATE: This contest is now closed
Our winners this week were chosen by Master Sensei and Smoke Night Live guests. Special thanks to our sponsor Room101 for suppling a generous helping of cigar prizes!
We’ve known the dangers of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act for years now, clinging on to the hope that the FDA would elect to exempt premium cigars from their impending regulations. Sadly, that hope is all but gone, as the FDA recently announced their verdict to lump premium cigars in with the likes of cigarettes, e-cigs, flavored machine-mades, etc.
And while the ruling is set to take effect this August, there is still time! The upside is that the ruling has woken up cigar smokers and the industry as a whole. Now is the time to band together and show the folks in Washington we won’t stand for their oppressive ruling.
Our contest this week is the perfect way to spread the word about the overbearing FDA ruling, while at the same time giving you a chance to try Room101’s excellent (and fitting) new release: The Big Payback Connecticut!
Contest Theme: Fight the FDA
All the petitions in the world don’t mean much when they fall on deaf ears. We need cigar smokers in large quantities, up in arms! Now’s your chance to tell the FDA how you really feel about their recent ruling. Make your entries on Cigar Dojo, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram and help us get the word out!

- Include hashtag #savecigars
Room101 might not have intended their Big Payback cigars to take on this particular meaning (being a big middle finger to the FDA), but we feel the timing is perfect! This week there will be FOUR 1st place winners, each taking home a 10-pack of Room101’s newest release, The Big Payback Connecticut! The cigars feature a 5×50 “Chavala” (robusto) size and surprisingly big flavors for a Connecticut. 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…
