We’ve finally reached the end of this amazing journey. It was a wild ride, and I’d go so far as to say that this was one of the best cigar related contests out there. Over the course of two weeks we gave away 265 cigars and a bunch of t-shirts, hats, cutters, ashtrays and even a lighter. I could never have pulled off such an enormous project on my own, so I have to thank some people before I announce the final winner for 2012. First my wife, Jennifer, who puts up with my insanity, moderates the new comments while I’m at work and is my greatest supporter. Thank you for making this year great. Of course the sponsors need thanking for offering all the great stuff we had to give away. They are:
Foundry Cigars/General Cigar Co.
Tobaccos Mata Fina USA
United Cigar Retailers
Villiger Cigars North America
Toraño Family Cigars
AJ Fernandez Cigars
The Cigar Agency
CAO Cigars/General Cigar Co.
All of these folks provided an unprecedented amount of wonderful stuff. Thank you to all of them for their participation! The next group that I want to thank are you, my readers! Without you I’d just be doing all of this for my own amusement, and I get tired of my same old jokes! Thanks to all who entered the contests. I hope some of you stick around as I wander through my cigar journey.
So, once again I’ve been torturing you with minutia, when all you really want to know is if you won the box of Drew Estate Undercrown and all of the associated goodies that come with it! We had 98 entries and Random.org selected 87. By my count that is cigarsonist. Please send me your contact information so I can ship all this stuff off to you!
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, etc. I’ll be back on Sunday, maybe I’ll put together a list of my favorites of the past year, or something like that. Hard to say what I may pull out of my sleeve!
Everything is back to running smoothly and we are rolling through the days now! A lot of great gifts have been given and there’s a lot of great stuff to come! Today’s present is excellent, but first we need to announce the winner of Day 4’s prize, a box of Smokin’ Cigar Bars courtesy of United Cigar Retailers. Matt Wells, please send me your contact information so that I can make sure you get the Smokin’ Cigar Bars shipped to you.
Today’s offering is courtesy of Villiger Cigars North America. We have a beautiful box of their new Villiger Colorado Double Robusto. This is a nice 5½ x 54 cigar that I featured on a post back in August (here). This is a very nice box of 20 cigars that will be finding a new home in some lucky reader’s humidor!
Villiger Colorado is a great example of Nicaragua’s ability to produce the finest cigars in the world. It’s dark, oily, reddish-brown Habano seed wrapper, double binders and filler blend of four distinct tobaccos provide a perfectly balanced blend of the richest flavors. The Colorado is available in four vitolas: robusto, toro, double robusto and Churchill.
Wrapper – Jalapa Colorado
Binders – Esteli Habano & Ometepe Habano
Fillers – Jamastran Habano, Esteli Corojo, Esteli Criollo & Ometepe Habano
Thanks go to Anne and everyone at Villiger Cigars for generously providing this fine box of cigars! You know what to do now! Leave a comment and check back tomorrow to see if you won!
Here’s how you enter: leave a comment. That’s it, plain and simple. Tweets don’t count, but feel free to spread the word, only comments on this page count as an entry. Each day there will be a different prize and the winner will be drawn from that day’s comments. The winner will be announced on the next day’s post. The contest is open to everyone, even if you’ve won one of my contests in the past six months, but once you’ve won, you are ineligible to win again in this series of contests. All prizes will be mailed as soon as I get a chance to go to the post office, or whenever the sponsor decides to ship, whichever is the case, so don’t make me chase down your address! Please e-mail your contact information to email@example.com as soon as possible!
