Joya de Nicaragua Contest! – Friday December 3, 2010

It’s been busy around here with the holidays and all, so I’ve been negligent in getting any new content posted.  That being said, I thought I’d just throw out a quick contest!  The prize will be a Joya de Nicaragua cap and cutter.  Come to think of it, that doesn’t seem to be enough considering the season, so we’ll add  a 5 count sampler box of Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970, consisting of a Machito, a Gran Consul, a Robusto Grande, a Belicoso and a Churchill.  These are great cigars and the cap and cutter are pretty cool too.  I’ll take entries in the form of comments on this page and tweets referencing @CigarCraig and the contest.  I’ll announce the winner sometime around December 19th, in hopes of getting the prize to the winner by Christmas.  I will randomly select a winner from the entries, with any luck in a creative way, but I can’t make any promises…

So bring on the comments!  Seasonal greetings are fine, whatever ya got!

Thanks to everyone for following along this year, and special thanks to my friends at Drew Estate for their support this year!

That’s it for now,

    The only cigars I’ve smoked from Drew Estate are the Tabak Especial and the Java. I need to try their traditional blends.

  4. Joya de Nicaragua…
    mmm, those are Great Cigars!

    Glad to see a new contest, just in time for Christmas.
    Thank you Craig for all you do…

    Hi Craig
    I won a JDN hat and cutter a while back from you. What I really need are the cigars because no one carries them around here. The hat and cutter would make a great gift for a very good friend and smoking buddy of mine.
    Thanks again Craig for all the fantastic contests and great reviews.

    You rock Craig, keep the faith and the flame!

  10. Hi Craig,

    I just had an opportunity to smoke the Hamilton’s House Selection you had gifted me. It was a very-very good cigar. (I was celebrating the Packer win over the 9’ers sitting in my garage huddled over my ice fishing heater.) I enjoy cigars that have a very deep tobacco taste and this cigar fits the bill. It smoked wonderfully producing loads of smoke. I noted a bit of spice but a ton of leathery tobacco taste. I will definitely be purchasing some of these in the future.

    I’ve always been a Drew Estate fan as I’m a huge fan of their Natural line, but I’ve always wanted to try the Joya de Nicaragua line and haven’t had the opportunity. So I guess in my round-about way, please consider this my entry into your contest. Thanks for all you do for the cigar community. Merry Christmas from the Scotts from Wisconsin!

    I’m a huge Drew Estate fan, and have just recently tried a Joya de Nicaragua – and was pleasantly surprised! So I hope I win this contest so I can try the rest of the line.

    Until then, Merry Christmas! Thanks for your site and blog!

    Great blog! Great contest prize!

    I like a number of the JDN lines buy haven’t tried the Antaño 1970 line. I look forward to trying them.

    Keep up the great work on your blog, I do enjoy reading your posts.

    I’m new here but I really like what all I’ve seen and read so far. Happy holidays, whichever you choose to observe (you can do any, this is ‘merica!) to you and yours.

  16. Seasons Greetings to you and the folks at Drew Estate, Craig.

    thanks for the updates and reviews. keep them coming.
    JdN is in my top five all round greats.

    Really loved the interview with Danny B. Also nice review on the Thompson package. Ligas are in my top 5 also and I would never want to try a “perfumed” cigar in the past, but I HAVE had a few of the Acids and they aren’t that bad. Not an every day smoke by no means. Hope you and Jen have a Happy Holidays!!!!

  19. Seasons Greetings! Love the site, love the reviews. Thanks for everything you do.

    Merry Christmas to all…and to all a good smoke!
