G-Man won my last 2 contests - are you guys going to roll over and let him steamroll ya?

I sent him, as prizes, incredible cigars; we're talking a wholesale price of at least $2.66. OK, that was retail price, but he got them nonetheless.

I just received a box from famoussmoke today, actually it was items won on cigarauctioneer. In any case, the total for the smokes (not including shipping) was $26.85. That gives you a general idea of what I bought. I'll give you another hint. I bought three types of cigars, 4 items in total (i.e., I bought two of one item, and one of two others). An item might be, for example, a 5er of cigars. All items contain tobacco.

The contest will last one week and I will post hints daily, or more often if I'm bored. Guess once a day or after any additional hints I provide.

Your mission is to guess what cigars I bought. The prize will be that I will send you one of the items that I bought two of. Unless of course I try them and really like them, in that case I'll probably roll up some kitty litter and......nah, too much trouble, the winner will definately win one of the items received.

Oh heck, lets get more hints in here.

I actually have not had any of these cigars before. Oh, I've had cigars from the three different manufacturers, and even from the same cigar family (i.e., X000 series, 1964, and 1926 are 3 families of Padron cigars), but not the exact same size, brand, and family cigar.

One of the items is from a Dominican source and has a Honduran Talanga wrapper with Domi, Nic, Mexican and Brazilian inside.

One of the items is from a Dominican source and has a Dominican tobacco with Connecticut seed, Ecuadorian shade wrapper. These came in a box. Apparently they use a little different aging technique for the tobacco compared to normal. That might be marketing BS, dunno, but thats what they say.

The last item(s) were boxes of a Maduro blended in DR with DR Piloto Cubano, Peruvian ligero and Nic tobaccos, a Nic binder and a Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper.

Good luck, play clean. No fightin', no gougin', no scratchin'......OK, you can scratch yourself while playing, but not others....

G-Man can play but not win this contest....kinda like an NCAA violation?

Thanks for another great contest.

1 box Arturo Fuente Spanish Lonsdale
1 box Olor Fuerte Corona
2 boxes Onyx Reserve #4

:w
Whoo hoo that Onyx reserve No. 4 is a nice looking cigar. In those tins ..... man I'm going to have to buy some of those. They run 11 bucks a pak at JR, I wish I could have snagged one of those on the auction site I visited but I didn't. I'll tell you what, though, Its pretty amazing to me how closely the composition of the Onyx reserve matches item number 3.

From JR:

"The Onyx Reserve is a new blend of the traditional Onyx series. Fuller in body and richer in flavor, this cigar is comprised of a complex blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Peruvian long-filler tobaccos wrapped in a coal-black Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper - a very satisfying cigar. "

My cigar(s) are "DR Piloto Cubano, Peruvian ligero and Nic tobaccos, a Nic binder and a Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper."

Hmmmm.......

Had one of the first cigars with Honduran wrapper tonight. Man, nice extreme box press, flavor was too light for me to be interested in a box, but they were as well made as anything I've had in a long time.

Okay, okay, I can't win, but let me say thanks again for the first two contests. I received the second group yesterday.

Here is my guess, for the fun of it........

Don Tomas Dominican Selection Lonsdale
El Rico Habano Rico Club
La Flor Dominicana Mojitos

I may not can win, but how about a little ring gauge bump for the effort?

Haha. Good Luck everyone!

Steve, yeah you're close. You're damned close. One is dead on. One guess is a little short and a little narrow, the other is left field (the one that has the 'special aging' or some other marketing gibberish). As I didn't buy any Nic cigars, the Padrons don't fit.

Man, knocking on the door.
One guess is too short, one guess is now too long. Take a look at the DTD cigar vitolas that are available as well as the FV.
May the force be with you my son.

I'm so pathetic at the other arcade games, the only ones I don't completely stink at are Simon and walking the drunk guy, and even in that one I'm miles away from first place. I think I must have missed out on Pacman as a kid.
