Lack of time, guilt giveaway!

By  | 

Daniel and I have been all sorts of crazy the past few weeks. We both took turns covering for each other as we always promise to get at least 2 posts up a week. Well, due to my never-ending work load, and the passing of my grandfather this week (no need for remorse, he lived a long, badass life. He was awesome!), I didn’t get a chance to get to my post. And yes, I feel bad. Part of what makes this blog thrive is the ability to bring you guys new updates throughout the week. And when we are late, or cannot produce, we feel bad. To make up for our  slackerness I decided I’d give away a few sticks from my personal humidor. Some are goodies, others are sticks that I recently reviewed. My loss, your gain!

In this quick giveaway I am going to throw in six sticks. Here they are:

1 – La Aurora 107 – Gran 107 (Are these even out yet? I don’t know…) [Robusto review hereCorona review here]

1 – EOBrands Murcielago – Toro [Review Here]

1 – Adrian’s CroMagnon – Cranium [Knuckle Dragger Review here]

1 – DrewEstate/Illusione Nosotro – Robusto (Original release) [Review here]

1 – J Fuego Sangre De Toro – Robust (Not yet released) [Review here]

1 – Tatuaje Verocu #5  [Review here]

There you have it. 6 awesome cigars that I personally love.

Entering is simple. Just leave a comment… that’s right. Nothing more. No annoying twitter updates or anything of the sort. Daniel and I will post this on twitter a few times ourselves..

The contest ends on Wenesday morning, March 23rd. I will choose a winner at random.

Here’s to hoping that each one of you all had a safe St. Patricks day!

Tony Casas is a 32 year old Creative Managing/Webdesigning/Craft Beer Drinking Cigar smoker from El Paso, Texas. When he isn't loving his wife he is either sleepy, hungry, or suffering from a headache.

    Condolences to your and your family on the passing of your Grandfather…badass life or not, we’re losing too many of them these days.

    Love the Tatuage….had one when we were down in Florida. Any of those sticks will make a dynamite smoke on the outdoor patio at the Black Bull…..kick back and watch the people traffic go by while enjoying a Creemore (outstanding Canadian microbrew) and a Sambucca chaser. Cheers my friends.
