CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways Day 11: CAO Cigars

Wow.  Yesterday was a record breaking day at  Not only did we hit that magical 100 comments as DocNJ foresaw  but we’ve never had so many page views since the launch of the site in 2009!  Thank you to everyone who visited and entered! Stay tuned, because this wasn’t necessarily the pinnacle! On another note, I usually am depressed about the beginning of winter, but this year I celebrated the shortest day of the year. That means the days will be getting longer from here on out which I like! Oh, you wanted to know who the winner was?  I’m droning on about stupid stuff while there’s a gift to be given!  We have a lucky winner of a whole bunch of goodies from our friends at Drew Estate!  abraxas828282, please send your address.  Do you have a loading dock, or will I need a truck with a lift gate?  Only kidding about that, but it will be a good sized package! Congrats!


Day 11 and I am beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel (and the bottom of the contest humidor!) How exciting it’s been, and it just keeps getting better!  Today we are featuring the newest offering from CAO, a box of the Concert Stage, the 5½ x 60 size in the line. Also, since I saw Ricky Rodriquez a few weeks ago, he hooked me up with a couple hats and t-shirts to go along with the cigars!  I really enjoy the cigars myself (not these, the box is still sealed!), they have a nice Ecuador Habano Rosado wrapper over a broadleaf binder that combines for a nice flavor.  This gift is a box of 24 cigars, two t-shirts (a L and an XL) and two hats.


Thanks to Victoria at General Cigar Co. and Ricky at CAO and all the fine folks involved!  There you have it!  Leave a comment, tell your friends and check back tomorrow to see who won!

Until tomorrow,
