The Happy New Year Roberto P. Duran and Assorted Goodies Contest!

I’m sure you’re all tired of cigar giveaways by now, but Jack Toraño at Roberto P. Duran Cigars wanted to get in on the 12SDoCG, and I was full up! Also, I had some extra goodies around that I wanted to find a good home for, so the winner of this event will receive two  shipments, the cigars from Roberto P. Duran in Florida, and one from me.  I’m also going to try out something new (to me), using RaffleCopter to picke my winner.  I’ve included several ways to enter, the usual “leave a comment here”, which is mandatory, visiting my Facebook page, and a daily Tweet option.  More chances to win at the expense of simply signing up for Rafflecopter, which you may already have done!


The Prizes!

From Roberto P. Duran Cigar Company we have a box of the Roberto P. Duran Premium Rio Toa, a beautiful 5″ x 52 Robusto with a Ecuador Habana Criollo wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and a blend of Nicaraguan and Latin American tobaccos in the filler.  I’ve smoked this in the 6″ x 60 size and it’s a very, very good cigar.  In addition to the cigars, I have a Kiss My Ash Radio Ashtray and Cap, a Liga Privada #9 cap from Drew Estate, some hard to find Two Guys Smokeshop and The Cigar Authority caps, The Jet Bag cigar bag, a four pack of Cuba Classic “eau de toilette” men’s cologne, and maybe some cigars and other goodies that might fall into the box while I’m packing it!





a Rafflecopter giveaway


That’s it!  Give the RaffleCopter thing a workout and see how many entries you can get!  I’ll announce the winner on Sunday, so there’s plenty of time to enter and Tweet and all!  Happy New Year to you all!  Let me know in the comments, if you want, what your New Years cigar was or will be.


Until Next Year,
