Smoke a La Aurora 107 Day Contest

October 2, 2013 · Posted in Cigar Community, Cigar Industry · Comment 

Barry from Miami Cigar & Co. asked me to do this so I’m going to do it.

On October seventh you should upload a picture of you smoking a La Aurora 107 (I suggest the corona or the robusto) in honor of Smoke a 107 Day. Why do this? After all, this is a lot of work as it requires a couple of clicks on your phone (take a picture of yourself smoking a La Aurora 107 and upload it with the hashtag #LaAurora107 – I guess that’s technically a few clicks). Well, it looks like someone will win a trip to the Dominican Republic to tour the La Aurora factory. I’ve been to their factory and it’s pretty damn awesome. So do it!

Yup, that’s right, we have a winner for the box of personalized cigars. His name is Michael W. and, based off of his comment, he’s a comedian.

I want to thank for sponsoring this competition. It was great and the post has received the most comments of any of the posts on this site.

Here’s the box of personalized cigars that Michael won

For those who didn’t win I definitely feel your pain. I’ve lost pretty much every one of these contests I have entered. Hopefully, in the future, we will do some more of these contests. So check back. Well, really, you should be checking back every once in a while for the great cigar content too.

Thanks everyone. That’s all.

Win a Box of Personalized Cigars

This competition is now over and the winner is… commenter #23, Michael W. Congrats Michael! I will be in touch shortly. Thank you all who entered. contacted me recently wanting to give away a box of personalized cigars. Basically, the way they personalize cigars is by printing up to three lines of text with up to 32 characters per line on the cellophane each cigar comes in. You can also put a logo on the cellophane, which is great for promotional purposes for your company or as just another way to show off to your friends.

It’s actually a pretty cool idea and it doesn’t cost much to do the personalization, just $10 for text and a one time $50 setup fee for logos. If you want to impress your friends or clients this is a great option.

Now to the contest. One lucky reader will win a box of personalized cigars (text only) and all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. The comment can be about anything but something about how you would personalize your cigars would be awesome.

Here’s where it gets interesting.

If less than 50 people leave a comment on this post the box of personalized cigars the winner will receive will be the Romeo y Julieta Aniversario Corona, which retails for about $165 on the site (which, I might add, is less than other sites are selling them for).

If 50 or more of you leave a comment on this post the box of personalized cigars the winner will receive will be the Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada Churchill, which retails on the site for about $290.

So, if you want a chance at winning the big prize tell all of your friends about this contest and get them to enter by leaving a comment on this post. The contest ends at 11:59pm PST on September 30, 2012 and I will announce the winner, who will be picked randomly by me using the random number generator on, the following day. And if the winner would be kind enough to post a picture of their loot on Twitter or Facebook or anywhere else please notify me so I can share it with all those who weren’t lucky enough to win.

Remember, the success of this contest rests solely on your shoulders so do yourself a favor and share this with everyone so that we can give the eventual winner a box of customized Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada Churchills. Contest Winner!
