Cigar Obsession Lottery #8, Update 3!

SmokeInn has very generously decided to be the sponsor for at least this 8th CO Cigar Lottery! In addition to the 150 cigars the winner this month shall receive this beauty, a 100+ count unit from SmokeInn – help me support them, they support you!

This is the third update for lottery #8! The lottery is rolling at a 150 cigar stop, so whenever the stash hits 150 I will draw a winner and the next round starts! As always I’ll have regular updates as things come in so you can drool over the growing prize pool :)

If you are new, watch the video to see what you could win, and keep reading to see the rules and tips!


This is going to be completely user driven kind of like the Lotto. However it doesn’t involve money or purchasing tickets with money, instead you are donating to the collective prize pool to enter!

Each time I will accept incoming packages with your cigars to add to the pool, and will update you with videos as entries come in. To add your entry you need to send in a minimum of 2 cigars, and can enter a maximum of 4 cigars, for a total of two entries per person/mailing address. Yes you can put all 4 cigars in one package. Damaged sticks will not be entered.


When shipping cigars, it’s ok to use baggies as long as they are packed tight enough so they don’t roll around enough to be damaged. If however you have had any stored too dry, do not include any humification, just ship them as-is. Use a small box. If you already have a box you can ship them 1st class for under $3 just about anywhere. I also like the flat rate priority mail boxes, they are about $5 good to go. Stuff the box enough so nothing moves around and has some cushion if need be. Protect the cigars from moving around in short. Use delivery confirmation, I am not responsible for lost shipments, do not ask me about them. All entries will be shown in update videos.


NO CUBANS! I’m semi-ok with reviewing them on rare occasion but I will not be involved in any way distributing them.
All participants must be 18+ years of age and reside in the US.
At the end of each lottery I will produce a video showing the random winner being drawn using and the winner will receive the whole prize shipment from me!
Cigars, ONLY, no cigarillos.
Name brand, banded cigars only – no no-name or house blends.
No intentional crap cigars like Ron Mexico or other similar ultra cheap POS smokes. Use common sense, if it’s not a major brand, don’t send it.

Include the following information in your package:

Cigars you are entering
Full return address for prize delivery

    FYI, aren’t tbe PDR fumas short filler?

    • Bryan Glynn

      Thank you for catching that. I had never heard of them and now looking them up – yep cheap buck-a-stick crap cigars. They do not quality for entry!

      • Justin

        Hey Bryan, I think I know the answer to this, but can you clarify that not ALL short fillers are disqualified, just the cheapies? For example if I sent in some Tabacos Baez by Pepin, would those be kicked out due to being short (or mixed) filler?

        • Bryan Glynn

          Correct, nothing to do with short filler, just no cheap crappy dollar cigars, which these are specifically marketed as. Shipping them in to me cost more than 4 cigars, think of it that way.

    Speaking of Cigar Aficionado mag…went to see my local tobacconist and asked about this years #1 on the top 25 and they basically said that they don’t know how that cigar got the number one spot and that there was nothing particularly great about that stick.

  • carrillo

    It’s a My Father Cigar. I haven’t tried a Flor De Las Antillas yet, but really Iiked everything they have put out so far. My Father Cigars are great sticks.

    • phaedron

      I tried one of the FdLA’s last week… unremarkable flavors with a really poor burn. Thought maybe I got a bad stick, so I bought one more at a different B&M. Same thing. Very bad burn and construction. Oh, well…!

      • E

        Was it the toro gordo or the regular toro? Something I have noticed with alot of the My Father lines is that the different sizes all seem to burn different and have a decent difference in flavor a lot of the time.

        On that note, I love the Flor de las Antillas. However, cigar of the year? Not so much…

  • mike44njdevils

    Sine the Pinar Del Rio Fumas do not quaify for the lottery, why not review one? I smoke them regularly (no I didn’t send them in) and find them rather flavorful, if a little plain :)

    • Bryan Glynn

      No, all disqualifications go to the winner I never take from the lottery.

  • The new guy

    If I’m having 4 sticks sent out today to get there tomorrow am I too late for the drawing?

    • Bryan Glynn

      No ones ever too late, like the rules say – when it hits 150 the winner is drawn and the next automatically starts.

      • The new guy

        Oh wow, ok that’s perfect! It’s the most simple of things that confuses me. Thanks Bryan!

        • The new guy

          Crap! I was watching the last drawing and I didn’t list the 4cigars I sent you. You don’t by chance indicate what is included do you?

          • Bryan Glynn

            You mean like the video you are commenting on? lol

          • The new guy

   I had mailed in 4 sticks for the drawing and as I was watching you pick The winner for the last one, they had all listed the cigars on their sheet. I did not do that and wasn’t sure if that would have any problems with my entry. Looks like a ton of pretty nice cigars. I would hate to lower my chances

          • Bryan Glynn

            Ahhh. No that doesn’t disqualify you it’s simply for tracking if there’s any issues.

          • The new guy

            Ok no worries. Sorry for so many comments. While I have you here maybe you can help me figure something out. Because I am always trying out new smokes all the time and aging the regulars. I am trying to figure out a distinguish aged tobacco without smoking it. That way I can put it down or say I’m gonna put it away for a couple monthsr is there any way to do that?

          • The new guy

            And now it looks like I forgot the email.

            Chris McDavid

            Sorry about my lacking on following directions. Noob mistake

  • PCcigar

    Are you close to the 150? I would like to send two or four!! If you still need some. Please let me know.
    Thanks much

    • Bryan Glynn

      As I said we are a couple weeks away from finishing this one.

  • chief791

    Wow this lottery is taking a long time to fill up. Must have been because of the holidays. This is the 4th one i have entered and i don’t remember any of them taking 2 months. Are we close to getting the winner?

    • Bryan Glynn

      Yes! We got 4 in today and are now 8 away from the #8 drawing and start of #9!

  • Smokin Butts

    Can’t wait to see what I won! :)
