Here we are at Day 6 already, time is really racing by. I decided that I’m going to try to ship everything at the same time since I got a coupon for 20% off USPS shipping at Staples and that will save me a lot of cash!! I enjoyed the heck out of my Joya Red on my walk last night, it’s a solid, medium bodied smoke with great flavor. The winner of the box of Joya de Nicaragua Joya Red is Brian D, and I’m sure he will enjoy these cigars! Please send your address! Just to ease everyone’s minds, all the cigars for this event have been kept in a dedicated coolerdor at the appropriate temperature and humidity! It’s still always a good idea to let cigar rest after they’ve made any kind of journey! Next up:
Tortuga Cigars/Legacy Brands
For Day 6 we have a really special present! Regular readers will know that I have an affinity for the Tortuga line, and Victor Vitale, the mastermind behind the brand, and owner of Legacy Brands, lives nearby in Philly, so I get to see him from time to time. Victor ‘s put together a special Connecticut Shade Cigar, the Tortuga 215 Reserva Regalo. These aren’t available anywhere, they a re a very special limited release and are a bit stronger than the milder Connecticut Tortuga 215 Reserva coming out in January. Victor tells me that the Regalo will never be released. The lucky winner will get three of the five count boxes (15 cigars). These are a fat Toro size, 6″ x 56, and are fantastic cigars! I’m calling today “Tortuga Tuesday”!
