Cubariqueño Cigar Co. introduced their first cigar in 2015—Protocol—using the brand owner’s law enforcement backgrounds as inspiration. This was followed up in 2016 with the Protocol Probable Cause, a new maduro blend that went on to win Cigar Dojo’s 2016 Under the Radar Cigar of the Year. And for 2017, Cubariqueño is set to round out their portfolio with a softer Connecticut blend—Protocol Themis—first announced on an episode of Smoke Night Live in early 2017.

The Themis was later officially debuted and now we’re giving you—DOJONATION—the first chance to try this exciting release! Not only this, but much more… FOUR BOXES in total of rare Cubariqueño cigars! We have brand owners Juan Cancel and Bill Ives (Cuban-Assassin) on tonight’s special, 100th episode of Smoke Night Live (or as we call it, the Juan-Hundredth episode), where they’ll be selecting our four lucky winners.

  • Aging Room cigars
  • Joya de Nicaragua cigars
  • Atlantic Cigar Sale
  • Neptune Cigars
  • Perdomo Cigars
This week’s contest is sponsored by Cubariqueño Cigar Co., where we will be offering cigar fans a chance to try the new Protocol Themis (and more) before their official release.

Contest Theme: Juan & Bill’s Excellent Adventure

Juan C. and Bill “The Cuban Assassin” Ives were among the first diehard Dojo members when the app was launched in 2012 (they were even inducted into the Dojo member Hall of Fame in 2014). The two then later went on to form their own cigar brand and have since enjoyed a cult following from Dojo members and other fans of boutique and under-the-radar gems within the world of craft cigars.

But for anyone who’s met these two—or seen them on cigar shows or social media—they’re some of the wildest personalities in the industry! The ongoing joke is, “Who is fatter?” with the jury still out on that verdict…

In the spirit of Juan and Bill’s lighthearted, nothing-is-off-limits attitude, we want to see your MEME and Photoshop skills this week! We’ve provided five photos of the dynamic duo—now have some fun with it and make us (and Juan & Bill) laugh… you just may win yourself some rare smokes!
