UPDATE: this contest is now closed

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! This is the holiday for we, the indulge-aholics… I’m sure many have already begun the fasting process, prepping your stomachs for the mayhem soon to come. It ain’t just an overload of tryptophan and sugar though — this is a great occasion to bust out the barrel-proof bourbon and/or single malt Scotch and a luxury-class cigar or two!

Speaking of which, we’ve assembled a true feast-sized collection of cigars for this week’s contest — brought to you by our friends at Room101.

Contest Theme: Give Thanks

Give thanks this week for a chance to win a feast of Room101 cigars! You know, like when you had to tell your childhood classroom how you were thankful for an extra couple days off of school… let’s take that concept and “adult-ify” it.

  • Atlantic Cigar Sale
  • Joya de Nicaragua cigars

Entry examples:

  • “I’m thankful that God invented bourbon”
  • Show your thanks for the troops
  • Show the Dojo your Thanksgiving recipes

You get the idea! Now run with it…

Use #giveThanks with entries

To enter the contest:

  1. Take a photo that involves cigars and the Thanksgiving theme
  2. Post your picture on the Cigar Dojo app
  3. Include hashtag #giveThanks

Grand Prize

Our grand prize winner this week will receive a bundle of 20 Room101 The Big Payback Connecticut cigars in the 5″ × 50 “Chavala” robusto vitola! This is a perfect “anytime smoke”, though we’ve found it really hits the spot with breakfast and a light/medium roast coffee. The cigar’s diverse blend spans 3 countries, with the Dominican filler encompassing 3 unique regions of the Dominican Republic. In all, this amounts to a fuller-flavored Connecticut than you may be used to: it’s still smooth and creamy, only amped up a few notches.
