Contest Day #3 – E.P. Carrillo (and Day #2 Winner!)
So we are now up to day 3 of our 3 year Anniversary Contest here at Casas Fumando. We have had a great response so far and we’re hoping that continues through all 9 days of this epic contest! In case you missed the first announcement post, read it here and check out what the upcoming prizes are.
Up on the docket for Day 3 is none other than Ernesto Perez Carrillo. The E.P. Carrillo brand has made a huge splash in the few short years since it was created. From their tasty limited editions to their very popular regular production lines, their success has been great. Based out of Miami, Ernesto is definitely not new to the cigar industry but his self-named brand is a new project. The official kick-off was in 2009 and he continues his family run legacy along with his son and daughter. Be sure to head on over to www.epcarrillo.com and take a look at their current offerings and be sure to read a little bit of their interesting history.
E.P. Carrillo and family have definitely been a great support for us here at Casas Fumando and we’re grateful for the kindness and generosity they have showed us. Yet again, they are showing their awesome side and have given up a box of their Core Line Natural Golosos. The Golosos vitola is a massive 6.25 by 60 cigar filled with an interesting mixture of Ecuadorian, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. We actually reviewed the Core Line Natural awhile ago in the Club 52 vitola, you can find that review here.
So now the big question is, how do you win yourself this awesome box of cigars? Well, we’re gonna make this an easy one but you’ll have to put on your creative hats and think of something. You can use any of the following methods to enter:
So here is your mission if you choose to accept it!
Come up with your own creative name and blend for a large 6.25 x 60 cigar.
We’re leaving this totally open with no theme to follow, we just want to see some funny/interesting/creative/weird ideas. Tie it into yesterdays line names if you posted one but let’s focus just on the one vitola this time. Let’s make sure to keep it (somewhat)clean!
That’s it, easy-peasy! Now hop to it before we decide to smoke all these cigars ourselves!
*Note* 18 years or older ONLY. The winner will be announced tomorrow.
Now onto the winners from Day #2 – RoMa Craft Tobac
The lucky person is going to receive a wicked package from RoMa Craft Tobac, specifically an Intemperance Sampler pack! We had an awesome amount of replies for the contest and we got some very creative ones too. Here’s a couple of honorable mentions that Skip Martin picked for the contest:

Sloth: 4 x 26. Pre-cut cigarillo.

So my idea for a cigar line is Coffee Inspired …
The line would be called: SmokeBucks and have a green mermaid as a logo (No trademarks violations!) The line would consist of :
The Peaberry~ a 5×42 Petit Corona Claro that would be mild and take 5 months of extra aging to bring it from green to dried
Coffea Arabica~ (nicknamed-“The Daniel”) a 5×50 Toro Colorado Maduro that would be full flavored and infused with Maple Syrup. This Cigar would only be sold at Tim Hortons, Hockey Games and Scuba Shops Side Note~ each box would come with a pint of Canadian Grade B
The Ethopian~a 6×42 Lonsdale Oscuro that is Earthy in it richness and smooth in it’s fullness, like the space that inspires it.
Café Robusta~(nicknamed “The Tony”) a 6×60 Gordo Maduro infused with Imitation Banana and Brisket flavorings. A quirky yet consistent smoke, known by many. The Tony would be sold in box that looks like a Foosball table and come with a Bobblehead of Wayne Newton
Caffees Fumando # 9~ a 7×49 Double Corona Colorado produced by Drew Estate in the Liga Privada line, This cigar would hope to made weekly, but in truth would come out more often ( most weeks). This cigar has the ability to Tweet, post on FB, take really really good pictures and give great samplers to Coffee addicts that show some creativity…
And now for the winners RoMa Craft Tobac decided to STEP UP their game and actually give out TWO awesome Intemperance samplers because they just couldn’t choose a winner. Here are the two winning entries!
WINNER #1: JoeyV
In a nod to old school hip hop which anyone who follows Chief Hava on twitter knows is a big deal, Id name my line GrandMaster and all the vitolas would be a nod to the legends of hip hop.
4 x 52 Petite Robusto – Bushwick
4 ½ x 60 Petite Gordo – Sugarhill
5 x 55 Robusto Extra – Furious 5
6 x 46 Grand Corona – Bambatta
6 x 60 Gran Toro – Notorious
It would be a two blend cigar. Full flavored, full strength binder and filler. One wrapped in Conny and one wrapped in Conneticut Broadleaf. Word to yer mutha!
WINNER #2: Jeremy H.
Driven by my love for cigars and fishing, I will have to carry on a fish theme with my cigar line “Outrigger”.
Half Corona – 4.25 x 42 “Minnow”
Corona – 5.5 x 42 “Perch”
Rothschild – 4.5 x 50 “Pan Fish”
