CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2015 Day 10: Leccia Luchador

Here we are at Day 10 already! Last night my wife and I went out on the town, and ended up at Cigars International‘s Super Store in Hamburg, PA where they were holding an event with Sam Leccia and the MWF (Micro Wrestling Federation).  They had a 12 foot x 12 foot  ring in the center of the store and  the place was packed.  Sam greeted us at the door and we bought some Leccia Luchador cigars and hung out upstairs taking in the whole event. There were four rounds, one of which was a tag team, with much profanity and trash talking.  It was hysterical, not at all politically correct, and loads of fun!  There are a few pictures here to give you a little bit of an idea what was going on.  Of course, the main event here today is the giveaway, which is a box of Leccia Luchador El Gringo Frogsplash (and I saw that move last night!).  The Frogsplash is a 4½” x 70 box pressed cigar, featuring a dark Nicaraguan wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Nicaragua and Pennsylvania. The box press makes the 70 ring gauge quite manageable, and it’s a very flavorful smoke. I smoked the Squared Circle, a box pressed torpedo, last night and it was really good.  Thanks again to Victoria at General Cigar Co. for sending this great Day 10 present, and to Sam for his hospitality last night and for making great cigars!





Yesterday we had a great pair of gifts from Smoke Inn, the latest in their Micro-blend series, Illusione Pactum and Drew Estate’s Pope of Greenwich Village.  The winner is a long time reader and a name I hear often in other social media outlets as a reader and listener, one who participates in chat rooms and comments. Swede214 is the winner, Carl, please send me your address so I can get these great cigars out to you!

    Congrats to Carl. Always have wanted to try to stop into one of the CI superstores, going to or from Knoebel’s. And I am always partial towards box pressed sticks. Thanks again, Craig, and to Sam as well. Kudos.
