Grand Prize

There will be ONE Grand Prize winner this week. Straight out of the dusty cobwebs of the Dojo’s buried humidors, we’ve pulled an untouched box of Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters, circa 2014 release. Pudgy Monsters was the fan-favorite limited edition followup to 2012’s Little Monsters cigars. Each cigar prior to 2014’s The Jekyll were included, as well as two additional blends—Chuck & Tiff—for the first time. The sizes basically use the length of Tatuaje Little Monsters combined with the ring gauge from each cigar’s original, full-sized release—hence the name, PUDGY.

Runner-up winner

There will be ONE Runner-up winner this week. Our second place winner this week will receive a full, unopened box as well! This prize is brought to you by Dojo sponsor JR Cigar. Witchdoktor is a special shop-exclusive blend for JR, which was crafted by industry veteran AJ Fernandez at his esteemed Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. These 5 x 52 robustos feature a box-pressed shape, Nicaraguan fillers, and an Ecuador Oscuro wrapper. The cigars are medium bodied and offer medium/full flavors that are easily enjoyed morning or night. Our sealed box contains 10 cigars.
