CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2013 Final Winner and Wrap Up

NOW it’s over. Seriously. No day 14, it’s time to put this puppy to bed. It was another terrific year of contests thanks to all of the sponsors and to all of  you for following along every day,  getting up early to enter, and all of the winners for getting to me promptly.  I’ll be shipping the last two packages from here today, and I heard from Barry at Miami Cigar and Co. that he will be shipping today too. As always, I couldn’t do it without the support of my wife, she has to put up with a lot of my insanity for a good month straight. Over the course of  nearly two weeks we gave away 245 cigars, along with some hats, t-shirts and cutters. That’s hard to beat!

This year’s sponsors were, in order of appearance:

Iconic LeafCC_Logo_xmas_s 2 Guys Smoke Shop
Leccia Tobacco
Legacy Brands
Flor de Gonzalez
Kings Cigars
La Aurora
La Palina
Miami Cigar and Co.
Villiger Cigars
Drew Estate
Torano Family Cigars
Famous Smoke Shop

Please visit these companies sites and check out their great offerings and thank them when you have an opportunity.  They don’t have to give stuff away like this, but it’s awfully nice that they do.


One last piece of business we need to get out  of the way, then we can get back to business as usual!  We need a winner for the two boxes of Romeo y Julieta cigars from Famous Smoke Shop.  Don’t forget to use the discount codes to get yourself some great deals at Famous Smoke Shop through January!

Discount codes:

CAPULET5 – Free 5-pack of Romeo y Julieta House of Capulet with any $75+ purchase

MONTAGUE5 – Free 5-pack of Romeo y Julieta House of Montague with any $75+ purchase

CAPULET20 – $20 off any $100+ purchase of Romeo y Julieta House of Capulet

MONTAGUE20 – $20 off any $100+ purchase of Romeo y Julieta House of Montague


OK, so the winner of the Capulets and Montagues is comment number 6, which I’ve determined belongs to irratebass! Mickey, please sent me your address so I can pass it along to Travis at Famous!


That’s it! Hope everyone enjoyed the ride and had a happy holiday! Now I have to start thinking of stuff to write about again!


Until the next time,

    Thank you so much for running your blog and running your 12 days of Christmas contest. I’ve always enjoyed your blog and try to get my buddies to follow as well. I’m still working on a few of my aforementioned friends to enjoy smoking vicariously through @CigarCraig as much as I do. Blessings to you and your family!

    Great job once again Craig. Can’t believe someone would put all this extra work on themselves during this already hectic holiday. That’s one of the things that makes this site special. You always go the extra step to engage your readers.

    Hoping for continued and growing success in the new year.

  16. Paul Grammer
