CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2014 Day 13?: Cohiba Cigars

It should come as no surprise that we are, once again, going to Day 13!  It’s a Festivus miracle! I was overwhelmed by the response from my dear friends in the cigar industry. Haven’t they been great?  Please remember to thank all the generous  participants, without whom this would be VERY expensive for me!  Let’s just hope the FDA doesn’t get in the way of our fun, and make sure you join Cigar Rights of America (or Europe, or Canada) so we have a chance to continue to enjoy cigars the way we have. Last night I smoked an Arandoza Red Label toro that I picked up at To’Makao cigars in Bethlehem, PA Sunday. This cigar is a powerhouse, with TONS of dark, rich flavor. If I were making a list, this would be at the top for me this year, I think. Terrific cigar! I know, you want to know who won the box of Arandoza Red Label,  and that lucky individual is Xolotal Mungin.  Make sure to send me your address so I can get this out to you!  And now, on to Day 13!



Cohiba Nicaragua


Day 13 brings us another cigar from General Cigar Co., the new Cohiba Nicaragua.  This is Cohiba’s first cigar to be made in Nicaragua with Nicaraguan tobacco from Esteli and Jalapa, wrapped with a Colorado oscuro wrapper.  Today’s present is the Cohiba Nicaragua N60, the largest size in the line at 6″ x 60.  This is a box of 16 cigars. I’ve smoked the robusto in this line and it’s spectacular.  Thank again to Victoria and the folks at General Cigar Co. for their unwavering support.


All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment on that day’s post and if you like, in one sentence tell us what comes to mind when you think of Cohiba Cigars.  It’s not a condition to win, but I’d like for the folks who make this all possible to come away with some consumer feedback.  Also, be sure to visit the links for each item. Comments on Facebook, Twitter, or anywhere else will not count, but feel free to spread the word!


Until tomorrow,

    The Nicaragua is a nice smoke. Always felt prior to this smoke, non-Cuban Cohiba’s were overrated, but this smoke has made me try others. (and have been pleased).

  2. Narek Bazikyan

    Ohh man, now these I’m familiar with, LOVE THESE, great smoke

  3. Fletcher Valentine

    I hear these Cohiba Nicaraguans are very good, even made Tiny Tim’s #1 spot in his top 25. Still very odd to my why they used a Honduran wrapper for this blend but I am very excited to smoke one, a box would be amazing, would be able to share with friends for the holidays. Thanks again Craig!

  9. Ryan

  12. Terry Eldrige

    Those Cohibas would cohabitate with my other sticks very well! Please, Santa?

  13. DB

    They are really massive Craig. But, send the Cigar Rights of America out to Utah… Lots of work to do here!

  14. David Wisniewski

    Wondering when, Cuban Cohiba’s will be available here in the US. In the meantime, I guess I’ll just have to enjoy the non-Cuban blends!

  15. JennieB

    Nice celebration sticks!

  16. George Householder

    On the road, I keep my eye out for them.

  17. Dylan W

    What is the cigar world without cohiba? Simply put it would be nothing.

  18. Deron Johnson

    What is there to say? If there was a time to get lucky this is it!

  19. Kasey Culmback

    Lucky 13?

  20. Chris Kirton

    One of my favs

  21. Kristen Barrett

    Have previously felt the larger sizes don’t keep me interested until the end…always willing to try though!

  22. Mike Perry

    I never win nuthin’… :-<

  23. Ingrid Gonzalez

    A box of this would be the perfect Christmas gift for my boyfriend;)

  24. Vlad Davidiuk

    I have tried the Cohiba Nicaragua and was very happy with them. My very first cigar was a Cohiba. I asked a friend to recommend a “good cigar” for my first smoke as a freshman in college. To this day, the name stirs those feelings of beginning a new journey, a new adventure, every time. It’s like an old friend you’ve known for years who has never let you down. You may not hang out with him every time, but when you do, you know it’s going to be a great time.

    WOW! Thanks, Craig and General Cigar Co. for making it possible to lose one more time in 2014. 🙂 I rate Cohibas up there with the other grand classics like Montecristos or Arturo Fuente top of the line cigars.

  26. Steve Christopher

    Thanks for the great contest! MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!!!

  27. Robert Ritchie

    I would like to have this box Cohiba Nicaragua cigars for the new year!
