CigarCraig’s Holiday Contest Number Three: Island Lifestyle and Tommy Bahama and Xikar Contest Winner

So I came home tonight to find the Verizon Fios completely out, TV and Internet, which totally craps in my cornflakes as I had plans to write this post and watch the Flyers game.  After an hour on the phone, and the mind-blowing idiocy of just trying to get a human on the phone, they scheduled a technician for Friday…ironically, there was a Verizon truck right across the street at the pole doing something just before the outage. Coincidence, I’m told. Anyway, T-mobile to the rescue and I can announce the winner of the great Xikar Xidris lighter, and tell you about today’s giveaway!


Tommy Bahama 1A few months ago I posted about the Island Lifestyle cigars, as well as the Tommy Bahama ashtray and travel humidor. I would honestly use the hell out of the humidor and ashtray if I didn’t already have my fair share of accessories, so I figured they would make a great giveaway!  I’m going to include one each of the Island Lifestyle Aged Reserve Cigars because I can still give away my own cigars if I want to!  These guys won one of the Tommy Bahama 2best in show awards at the 2016 IPCPR show, so they have some credibility. So there’s the  Island Lifestyle Aged Reserve Cigars in three wrappers, Connecticut, Sun Grown and Maduro in this prize package. Island Lifestyle is  the exclusive manufacture for the Tommy Bahama cigar accessory line, and if you ever wander into a Tommy Bahama store, you’ll find a nice display of cool cigar cases, humidors, ashtrays and whatnot. They have a really neat folding ashtray with a cutter and lighter,but that’s not included in this give
away. The Tommy Bahama travel humidor is a larger size and will hold five 60 ring cigars,  but here’s a helpful hint: it will hold ten 5″ x Tommy Bahama 350 robustos!  The ashtray is a large, melamine ashtray with clip on rests, it looks like a fine ceramic ashtray, but if you drop the thing it will fare much better I think.  So that’s the gift this time around! Same rules apply, leave a comment to enter and I’ll pick a winner on Sunday (or Monday, Sunday being Christmas day and all). Thanks to the folks at Island Lifestyle Importers for providing these cool items! I kinda wish I were in the islands right now…




Xikar Xidris YellowThe winner of the Xikar Xidris lighter is…While I;m thinking of it, it’s been rather relaxing doing casual contests over three or four days, unlike the insanity of the daily contests…anyway, you wanted to know who won the great yellow and black lighter, and it is Lonnie W. Brooks! Congrats! Please e-mail me your address so I can send this to you.


That’s it for now, until the next time when I should have TV and internet back….
