Contest! El Artista Exactus Super Coloso and Ashtray!

It’s been a while since I had a proper contest, and my friends at El Artista Cigars have offered to sponsor a series of them! Tabacalera El Artista has roots going back to 1955, and has been making cigars in the Dominican Republic ever since. Some of their brands are Pulita, Puros Ambar, Big Papi (David Ortiz, the Major League Baseball star, whose appearance at the 2017 IPCPR show drew big crowds), and the Exactus.  Today’s contest features the Exactus Super Coloso, a huge 11″ x 90 cigar, with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Dominican Wine Fermented Criollo 98 binder and Dominican Criollo 98 filler. this is a lot of cigar, chances are you’re going to want someplace to rest it when you smoke it, so also included is a beautiful Exactus Ashtray. While I haven’t personally smoked the Super Coloso, I’ve enjoyed the Robusto quite a few times, good stuff.

    WOW! That cigar is so big that I might have to hook it up to my hookah and share it with some friends. (just kidding – I don’t have a hookah – REALLY!.)

  16. Mike Perry

    Daaaaaaaaamn! I thought the Monte A and Partagas Lusitania were big ass cigars…11×90 is good for a double-header where each game goes 15 innings! Good luck finishing this monster to whomever wins.

  32. Joe K

    Great contest Craig, hope to see you at a local cigar bar sometime soon

  33. Mike W

    I’m in! Thanks for another great contest!

  34. Sorry that I’ve been away from the blog for so long. Without going into too much detail, it started off with my modem taking a dump and ended up with my cable/isp provider having to rewire everything from the street to the cable outlet in my bedroom. There were two completely different feed lines coming into the place and they eliminated that problem and replaced all of the coaxial cable. That precipitated a lot of other work in the apartment. In short, it took almost two months to get it all sorted out and I missed checking in with you all.

    Thanks, Craig. As always, it’s a great contest. I just dropped an ashtray on the floor recently and when it hit my metal desk frame, it shattered into hundreds of shards so a new tray would really come in handy. Wish me luck. (I’m still vacuuming up small pieces of that ceramic from the carpet.)

  35. Jay A Reiniger

    I live the ashtray, but that stick is nutso.

  36. Kirk
