Contest Day #7 – Miami Cigars (and Day #6 Winners!)
Day 7 already? Wow this is going fast! But don’t worry, we still have a few more tempting prizes to give away. And I now have free reign on creative content for 3 days! muahahahaha! 😉 Today’s prize comes to us from our good and faithful friends over at Miami Cigar. It’s no secret we are a big fan of Miami cigars and as Tony mentioned in the original contest post, we named their La Sirena cigar as our top smoke of 2010 and we still both enjoy them quite a bit!
Now Miami Cigars has been a massive supporter of Casas Fumando and we have nothing but respect and appreciation for the great team over there. They have consistently pumped out some top rated cigars that everyone seems to enjoy, especially with the distribution rights to a cigar juggernaut such as La Aurora. Along with that awesome brand they also push well known brands such as the Nestor Miranda Collection, Don Lino, Tatiana, and Casa Miranda. Also, hats off to the company for picking up one of the sweetest, and down right greatest guys in the industy, Barry Stein. You may know him from his previous blog or his antics on twitter. Even before he was with Miami Cigars Barry has always lent a helping hand to us, and has continued to do so. Thanks bro!
Miami cigars has also been one of the most active cigar companies in the social media world and even helped La Aurora create a brand new line based on requests from social media. That was the La Aurora 107 Lancero, and they even took the first few orders based on social media messages. It’s great to see some cigar companies jumping in feet first and taking advantage of these resources that allow them to reach far across the world.

Now Miami cigars once again provided their awesome support to us and included a wonderful prizepack for a lucky winner that will be chosen today!

To have us pick your winning comment, you have to tell us about one of your fondest vacation memories that is either embarrassing or a secret you don’t usually tell others. If you don’t have one, make one up! Be creative and interesting! Feel free to swap any of the embarrassed persons name for Tony’s name in your story! Extra points if you do! lol
Now onto the winner from yesterdays Ortega Serie D. giveaway!
We have a huge flurry of responses on yesterdays post, that was super awesome everyone! As per usual, let’s get to a few honorable mentions before announcing the winners.
Why not kick it off with the man who made today’s contest happen! MCCBarry – When Eddie went to Rocky Patel he secretly wed Nimish Desai, but the world of cigars would react much like Judas Priest when they found out Rob Halford was gay. So since he can’t change his last name to Eddie Desai he put the D on the band to announce his love for the man he wed
DaveFromPhilly – D stands for David. Eddie knew i’ve been buying Murcielago’s, 601 Blues and Reds in mass quantities so he wanted to dedicate his first solo cigar to me. If i were to make something up I’d say the D stands for Dainty, because Eddie lures in his enemies with trickery by using that Dainty smile of an Angel, only to suprise them with karate chops to the Adam’s Apple. But I can’t make something up when i know the truth. And the truth is that he dedicated his cigar to me.
And now onto the winners. We have 3 prizepacks to give away so here are the 3 winners of the Ortega Cigars Serie D. Sampler packs!
Winner #1 – irratebass – The “D” Stands for daring, in a daring attempt to jump ship from a productive/profitable and respected company and to venture out on his own. I was very pleased when I heard the Mr. Ortega was going to go out on his own….being a fan of the 601, Murciealago and Cubano cigars I couldn’t wait to see what was coming on the horizon. Congrats to you for bring so DARING and thank you for the smokes.
Winner #2 – Peter – D would have to stand for “Dominance”. Eddie has always dominated the cigar industry, with his good looks, his friendly composure, and of course, his blends. This is yet another dominating move put forth by Mr. Ortega, and for the price vs. Quality, this cigar will once again dominate the competition.
Winner #3 – Ben – The “D” symbolizes Daniel, EO’s oldest son. The next big release will be the Serie K, representing his other son Kristian, which, oddly enough, brings to the table a flavor profile strikingly similar to that fabled Kellogg’s cereal. The correlation, as Coco Puffs are Daniel’s favorite cereal, it seems natural that the dark and chocolately cigar would be labled the Serie D, and the rumored (as of now) Serie K has a much lighter, bran-ny looking wrapper, and weirdly enough, pairs well with strawberries…
Winners, please email your name, and address to “firstname.lastname@example.org”. Thanks again for every one who entered! Keep the entries coming!
