Our contest this week features some of the more premium selections from Gurkha Cigars. Read on to see how you can enter to win a full box of Gurkha Heritage, Gurkha Founder’s Select, or the “Rare Limited Edition” sampler pack.

This week’s contest is sponsored by Gurkha Cigars, with cigar prizes provided by Cigar Dojo.

Contest Theme: Heritage

Since launching in 2015, Gurkha Heritage has quickly become one of the most popular blends in Gurkha’s massive portfolio—especially among craft consumers. Following Gurkha’s theme of pride and heritage, we want DOJONATION to do the same—i.e. show us your “heritage” in fun and creative ways!


  • Smoke a cigar in your kilt (if you’re Scottish)
  • Get the Oktoberfest festivities started and show your ideal beer/cigar combo (for those with a German background)
  • Show us your epic family recipes for whatever your heritage’s preference (my grandma Delisa makes some mean spaghetti!)

Try to refrain from simply posting old family photos – these are always neat, but begin to sort of blend together after a few posts. Get creative, make us laugh, make us cry, make us ponder… BUT HAVE SOME FUN!

  • Joya de Nicaragua cigars
  • Neptune Cigars
  • Atlantic Cigar Sale
  • Aging Room cigars
  • Perdomo Cigars

Grand Prize

Gurkha Heritage features a refined appearance similar to what you may expect in the fine wine market. The cigars utilize a Nicaraguan-based blend that is balanced by tobaccos of three other countries for a diverse experience. With a Rosado Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Gurkha Heritage offers a medium/full body and robust profile. This grand prize contains 10 Heritage cigars in Kingsman size, a 7″ x 54 figurado with a pigtail cap.

2nd Place

1st and 2nd place are technically a tossup, as this prize features a full box of Gurkha Founder’s Select in the 6″ x 58 Rothschild format. Like the cigar’s Cellar Reserve siblings, Founder’s Select features select, aged tobaccos at its core (12-year-aged, in this case). The blend is on the milder side, using a Connecticut Shade wrapper over a 100% Nicaraguan interior.
