CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2014 Day 6: Tortuga

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”!



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 Tortuga 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,

    I think it would make a really good gift for my uncle. Since I know he most likely hasn’t had one.

    Tortuga brings to my mind the Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Tortuga brings to mind an afternoon on the deck with my grill fired up, a cooler full of Belgian Ale, and a Tortuga 215 waiting on the picnic table.

  18. Chris Kirton

    Tortuga cigars all the way.
