Movember Week 2 – More Prizes and News from The Maldonado Dynasty!

By  | 

It’s week 2 of my Movember Campaign and I’ve got some exciting news! Firstly, I actually have a Mustache now! Yeay me! lol It’s been one week and my updated picture on the Movember page was taken Monday morning after a fresh Sunday shave. I know it’s a little thin for now but give it a couple more weeks. So How am I doing???

I’ve raised over $400 already and I hope to keep pushing on! If you haven’t donated on my Movember page yet, please be sure to do so! You will get entry to win a fantastic cigar prize pack for every dollar you donate. Make sure to read the contest post I made last week to see what you could win.

Now for this weeks EXCITING NEWS! Paul Maldonado of the Maldonado Dynasty contacted me last week after seeing my initiative on the Movember Campaign. He was very impressed and proud that I was giving away a Maldonado Dynasty “The Mogul” as part of my awesome prize pack for the Movember Contest that he went ahead and one-upped me! Paul is sending us an ENTIRE BOX OF “THE MOGUL” TO GIVEAWAY as part of my Movember Campaign!!! How awesome is that?! Thanks so much to Paul and the Maldonado Dynasty for offering up this awesome bonus for such a great cause.

Paul also gave me a little news to give out to our faithful readers. If you haven’t read about “The Mogul” yet, be sure to check out my review I posted awhile back. It’s clear to see I really enjoyed that cigar and I’ve smoked my way through almost 2 boxes ever since. A lot of people who follow us on Twitter and Facebook have asked how they can get their hands on “The Mogul” to try it themselves. As of this moment, boxes of the Maldonado Dynasty “The Mogul” are available directly on their website located here:

Now for those people who like to sample their cigars before committing to a box, you’re in luck! Paul told me that “The Mogul” will be available for sale as a Sampler pack of 5 starting this week! A picture of the cigars included in the pack will be available next week. So make sure to order yourself a sampler and if you trust my judgement, go ahead and purchase a whole box, you won’t be disappointed! Here is the link one more time:

So I bet you’re asking, “How do I win some of the Maldonado Dynasty “The Mogul” for myself?” Well, we decided we aren’t going to give the entire box away but rather we are going to split it up into 4 separate prize packs of 5-cigars so more people get a chance to try this tasty cigar! Since these were donated as part of the Movember Fund Raiser/Contest, the only way you can win these is by donating (the rules for the original 5-pack I posted about last week will still stand for that prize)

He is engaged to a wonderful Fiance and looking forward to his wedding. Feel free to contact Daniel anytime via email (dalamscius[at]gmail[dot]com). And make sure to follow him on twitter

    Huge contest man! It was awesome of Maldonado to send over that box to you in support.
    Your stache can only be known as, “IL Dulce”. (It wears a top hat and cane when it goes out)

    • Dalamscius

      November 9, 2011 at 9:51 am

      Thanks Dan, that name is awesome! haha Remember to donate to get a valid entry for the Maldonado “The Mogul” Prizes. Even just $1 towards a great cause! 🙂

    I would call your stach “The Larry-Curly”. Cause it definitely aint a Mo – A little 3 Stooges humor there 😉

    • Dalamscius

      November 9, 2011 at 10:12 am

      See, now that’s a creative name! haha. My Sunday morning routine as a kid ALWAYS involved watching the 3 Stooges! Great classic TV!
      Making up a funny name is step one, remember to donate at least $1 to this great cause to be properly entered to win “The Mogul” cigars. 😉

      BWAHAHAH the toronto tickler… that’s actual Daniel’s nickname.

      • Dalamscius

        November 9, 2011 at 1:38 pm

        How did this name get out to the public?! Blasted! Now I need to change my Super Hero alias!

        I actually like Dalmoustachio! I feel like it would go well at the end of one of those cheesy Dos Equis commercials.
        “He is the most interesting man in the world, Dalmoustachio!”

    I am very curious to try “The Mogul,” myself, I have heard nothing but great things! I suggest the name “Yosemite Sam,” as a name. Do not worry, i will also contribute my money donation. Great work, Daniel!

    • Dalamscius

      November 9, 2011 at 1:47 pm

      LOL Paul! Very funny, maybe you should look into what this whole “Maldonado Dynasty” company is all about too… hehe

      The Yosemite Sam Stash! haha

      • Paul Maldonado

        November 9, 2011 at 1:49 pm

        Are they hiring, I may want to work for them too! 😉 LOL So glad to be part of this fundraiser, Daniel. My contribution will be there today or tomorrow.

    1. It would have to be The Mo-gul, wouldn’t it?

    2. The ‘Stache With The Most (The ‘Stache With Temos)

    Kudos to Mr. Maldonado for his contribution!

      It is truly our pleasure and honor, jjo. Daniel is a great chap and we are HUGE supporters of any philanthropic work. You know, Daniel… Lou may have a point with shaving off the chin.

  8. Lou Bozzelli

    November 9, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    great review Daniel T. I got to be honest though, if your gonna grow the moustashe you should really shave the chin. With all this hype, you got to let the Mo stand alone, loud and proud!!! My name for the Mo……………..”Lil’ Danny Boy”.

    Since I’m seeing you this Sunday Daniel, I’m giving you cash direct. I’m still scared sending cash over the web. CASH ON THE BARREL. Canadian style.

    • Dalamscius

      November 9, 2011 at 10:34 pm

      Ya know Lou, a lot of people have said that to me. I shaved my chin this summer and I thought it looked absolutely terrible. I vowed never to do it again! lol According to the rules, as long as chin doesn’t attach to stash, I’m in the clear! haha

      Cash on the barrel works for me buddy and I appreciate the offer! Just make sure I can take the barrel home after, thanks! lol

    A name for your stache……look no further!

    I dub thee…… “THE MAGNUM!”

    As in Magnum P.I.

    Now….to complete your look you need to find a rich English Gentleman that you can mooch off of while living in his lavish guest house & you will also need to acquire an African American associate who owns a helicopter & a dorky white guy named Rick who wears awful suits & constantly gets kidnapped/beaten up/rejected by the ladies.

    Come on man…..make the commitment! BE “THE MAGNUM!”

    Its great that you are doing this. We need all the help we can get. Money is tighter than it has ever been around here and every little bit does help.

    He looks like he is auditioning for one of those creepy Rocky Patel ads….. You know the ones with him and a glass of wine with a denim shirt….

    Awesome of Maldonado to get involved. I have not seen these in my area. Will need to look for them….

    Good luck!
