CigarCraig’s Holiday Giveaways No. 2 – La Gloria Cubana Cigars and Humidor

Before we get to today’s giveaway, I better announce the winner of the last one!  The winner of the Gurkha Goodies Giveaway, as selected by the random number generator at is Jeffrey Martin!  Please send your address so I can get this shipped to you on Tuesday!




La Gloria Cubana Contest 1A couple of months ago I attended an event at a local shop which featured Ernesto Perez Carillo, but was a General Cigar Event. It would be confusing if one wasn’t aware of Ernesto’s involvement with La Gloria Cubana, which was his baby until he sold it to General. It was a treat to see him and get to talk to him for a bit, and I talked myself into buying a box of the new La Gloria Cubana Coleccion Reserva, just to have Ernesto sign it for me. I don’t usually do that, but it was Ernesto, and I’ve been a huge LGC fan for decades. I love the cigars, so I’m in good shape there, and wanted to share some with La Gloria Cubana Contest 2a lucky reader. One of the “gifts with purchase” for buying the box was a cool La Gloria Cubana Serie R travel humidor, along with a fiver of the Coleccion Reserva La Robusto, and Rami, our local rep, threw in another fiver.  So there’s a travel humidor, ten great cigars, along with a couple of others from my humidor, a Serie R Esteli and a Serie N JSB.  As you can see the travel humidor will hold 11 cigars, but not 12. Thanks to General Cigars for helping me out with this one and giving me the chance to hang out with a legend in the cigar biz, as well as making great cigars!


You know the rules, leave a comment to enter and I’ll pick a winner next Sunday, which is New Years Eve. Today is Christmas Eve, so Merry Christmas to all. I’ve been smoking some favorites lately, and will pick out a couple of special cigars for today and tomorrow, no doubt.  So, until the next time,

  52. Dan Colley

    It would be hard to pick a better cigar to collect, especially with Ernesto’s signature on the box. I also like those things in a big way. I had a friend give me some of the very large maduro torpedos a couple of years ago. He told me he had them boxed in his cooler for at least five years. I’ve had them for at least two. I can say that they are sensational. I don’t see many maduros in that size offered, so I’m hoarding the last few of the Mohicans.

  53. Marco Lebron

    Happy Holidays brother! Cool contest.

  54. Commish
