Contest Day #5 – Emilio Cigars (and Day #4 Winner!)

By  | 

I trust everyone had a wonderful, and safe St. Patrick’s day weekend? I did. I laid low, had a few drinks and a cigar with my older brother, and just relaxed. The past few weeks have been insane for me, and I was glad to finally get some rest in. Who cares about that stuff though right? You guys just want to win stuff!

Today’s sponsor is non other than Gary Griffith, owner of Deleware Cigars and founder of Emilio Cigars. Now if you aren’t familiar with Emilio Cigars, you need to get up to date. Emilio Cigars made a HUGE splash last year when it dropped it’s first three lines, the AF1, AF2, and Grimalkin. You can read my reviews of the AF1 here and the AF2 here along with Daniel’s take on the Grimalkin here. The AF1 and AF2 are properly named after the madman that teamed up with Gary to create the blends, non other than the infamous AJ Fernandez who is known for blends such as the Man O’ War series, The San Lotano, Ave Maria, Diesel, Rocky Patel Fusion, La Herencia, and so much more. The Grimalkin on the other hand remains a mystery. Interesting enough there have been many rumors that this blend was actually crafted by none other than Don Pepin. Is it really? No one knows.

Anywho, Gary has always been an awesome guy. He is one of the wittiest, smartest, and most genuine guys out there. Strike up a conversation with him, anytime, about anything and you will see what I mean. You can touch base with him through his website, on Twitter, and on Facebook. He’s a pretty likable guy, most of the time.

Gary has always supported the cigar community. He’s a big believer in making a change. It was no surprise that, without hesitation, he jumped on board to support us. Gary has offerrred up a HUGE Emilio Cigars prize pack for one lucky winner. One lucky winner will win 2 Grimalkin coffee Mugs, an Emilio Cigars polo shirt, and a sampler of all of his cigars (10 in total)! How awesome is that?

Now how do you win all this goodness? I’ll make this easy on you. Anyone who knows Gary, knows that he likes to kick people in the nuts, or at least, threaten to kick people in the nuts. Pretty funny stuff. Now I want you, in a comment below, to tell me two things. 1) Who would you like to have Gary kick in the nuts and 2) why?. You get an extra entry if you have him kick Daniel in the Nuts. (totally kidding on that).

Make it fun, make it creative! Again, please be 18 years and over. I will have Gary choose a winner from the comments tomorrow.

And now, to announce Friday’s winner!
