Big PapiThe Big Papi by David Ortiz was released last year, and David Ortiz’ appearance at the IPCPR show drew a big crowd from all accounts, I had a conflicting appointment so I missed it. You can read my thoughts on this cigar, and others in the El Artista family here. The Big Papi by David Ortiz is a 6″ x 54 toro with a Ecuador Habano wrapper, Criollo 98 binder and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. We’ll have two winners this time, the runner up will get a five pack of Big Papi by David Ortiz and the grand prize is a box of Big Papi by David Ortiz! My friends at El Artista have been very generous with this series of contests, so make sure you check them out, they make some very nice cigars. So that’s it! Leave a comment on this post to enter! I’ll announce the winner next Friday, September (ugh!) 1st, 2017.

Here are a couple pictures of the limited edition Big Papi Humidor from the El Artista IPCPR booth.
