UPDATE: This contest is over. The winner was picked LIVE on our show. Out of 15 finalists picked for their creativity the final winner was picked at random from those 15 entries. Congrats top Dangerously Mike for winning with the following entry.

Drew Estate recently overhauled the company’s entire collection of Herrera Esteli cigars. This includes all four of the brand’s core blends, such as Herrera Esteli Habano, Herrera Esteli Norteño, Herrera Esteli Brazilian Maduro, and Herrera Esteli Miami.

While none of the blends have been altered, the overall look is now more consistent and updated for the modern enthusiast. This week, we’re giving DOJONATION the chance to experience the Herrera Esteli Norteño in its sexy new layout!

Contest Theme: Cig-imericks

Pardon the pun… our contest this week revolves around cigar poetry, of all things!

Get in the spirit of your inner Mark Twain, or perhaps Groucho Marx… and write a quick cigar-themed poem. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to rhyme! Allow us to set you in the right frame of mind, with an excerpt from Thomas Hood’s The Cigar:

Some sigh for this and that,
My wishes don’t go far;
The world may wag at will,
So I have my cigar.

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

Use #cigarPoem with entries

To enter the contest:

  1. Write a short cigar-themed poem and post it on the Cigar Dojo app
  2. Add a photo if you’re feeling extra creative (not required)
  3. Include hashtag #cigarPoem
  4. Share your entry on social media » see how

Grand Prize Winner

This week’s contest will have ONE winner, receiving a full box (25 cigars) of Drew Estate’s Herrera Esteli Norteño in a tantalizing 6″ x 52 box-pressed “Toro Especial” format!

When the Norteño first debuted in 2014, the cigar earned an impressive 92 points from Cigar Dojo, later going on to be placed as our No. 4 Cigar of the Year.
