Coming off a very successful year—with multiple industry year-end nominations, including Cigar Dojo’s #4 Cigar of the Year—Southern Draw Cigars has shown no sign of slowing in 2018. The company announced a 6½″ × 40 Lancero addition to its hit Rose of Sharon lineup at the start of the year. This sought-after size has since been followed up by SD’s recent announcement of their IGNITE series, where they will partner with five retailers throughout 2018 to release a limited run of 5,000 jars; with a portion of proceeds going to military-focused charities. The first cigar in the IGNITE series has since been announced as the Jacob’s Ladder Lancero, accompanying the popular Rose of Sharon Lancero release.

Contest Theme: Friday the 13th

We celebrate Half Christmas (some of us…), we celebrate half birthdays, but what ever happened to Half Halloween?! April marks six months since Halloween and, considering we also “happen” to be landing on a Friday the 13th this week, the whole concept was a bit too tempting not to celebrate…

In the spirit of Friday the 13th, show us how unlucky you are, break the clichéd superstitions, watch a few Friday the 13th movies, or whatever other crazy shenanigans you can come up with—all in the name of free cigars!

Get creative and have fun with the concept—bend the rules, do what you gotta do to make us laugh, cry, cringe, etc…
