Our winners this week were Counsel704 and John C. (#helloDojo contest) and Kevin H. (social media winner)

In the world of premium cigars, new brands are in constant pursuit for a spot in your humidor. As you’re most likely familiar with a similar environment in the craft beer scene, it can become a tricky task finding that standout blend—the “cigar needle” in a haystack made of tobacco!

Of course, there’s far too many blends to ever taste them all, but that’s where we come in—lending a helping hand in the continuous guide for new and exciting cigar experiences. Take Bella Dominicana for example, they debuted on the scene in 2015, building a reputation outside the US for a classic, Cubanesque profile and an uncanny sophistocation—all while remaining in the “affordable” category… This shouldn’t be a complete surprise, however, as these beauties are associated with heavy-hitting names such as Jochy Blanco and Ernesto Perez-Carrillo!

The cigars went on to receive Cigar Dojo’s 2015 Under the Radar Cigar of the Year award, as well as an impressive rating—and now we’re offering you a chance to try them while they’re still unknown to the US market.

Contest Theme: Meet your community
