Grand Prize

There will be ONE Grand Prize winner this week. D’Crossier has long embraced their support for our great country with the Diplomacy Series. The cigars gained their latest addition this summer with the new Pennsylvania Avenue cigars, introduced at the 2016 IPCPR show. This 12-count box of “Wide Toro” cigars features the message, “Protect our rights and freedoms in the land of the free,” on the box’s face. The cigars use a 5⅛” x 58 vitola and showcase a beautiful Habano Criollo Especial wrapper, a Habano binder, and fillers from Brazil and the Dominican Republic. The cigars are described as medium to full body with a full range of flavors, being aged in brand owner Santana Diaz’s humidor for approximately 19 months.

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! The Presidential Collection was among the original releases in the series. There are ten, 5⅛” x 58 cigars in D’Crossier’s signature “Bullet” size—an attractive, short torpedo with a covered, pigtail foot. The blend is dark, savory, and on the fuller-bodied side; using a Costa Rican wrapper, Ecuadorian binder, and Dominican fillers.
