CO Cigar Lottery 11 Update 1

Posted on Thursday, April 25, 2013 in World of CO

EDIT: I know there are a TON of Gurkhas out there guys, and I know they come in a TON of online samplers and deals…but please…for everyone’s sake, lay off sending them in. It’s getting ridiculous at this point. I REALLY don’t want to have to make more rules, but I think people are starting to take advantage of the lottery a bit here.

Cigar Obsession Lottery #11, Update 1!

SmokeInn has very generously decided to be the sponsor for at least this 10th CO Cigar Lottery! In addition to the 150 cigars the winner this time shall receive this beauty, a 100+ count unit from SmokeInn – help me support them, they support you!

This is the first update for lottery #11! 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!

HOW TO ENTER

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 2 or 4 cigars, for one or two entries per person/mailing address. Yes you can put all 4 cigars in one package. Damaged sticks will not be entered.

SHIPPING TIPS

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.

RULES

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 random.org and the winner will receive the whole prize shipment from me!
Full-sized Cigars, ONLY, no cigarillos.
Name brand, banded cigars only – no no-name, off-brand store bundle-only 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:

Name
email!!
Cigars you are entering
Full return address for prize delivery

Send entries and info here:
Bryan Glynn
5318 Bob White Dr.
Holiday, FL 34690

Good luck and SPREAD THE WORD! The more people are in it the bigger the prize!! Click the buttons below here and tell everyone, get them to enter! The bigger the pool the cooler extra stuff I can get you like the free humidors as well!

    Pretty nice start. I have a question though, being out here in the Stan presents a couple obstacles. Last time I had my wife send what I left behind at home. Those are now gone. I cannot ship tobacco from here either. So what I am thinking is…is it possible for me to make an online purchase and just have it sent to you for the contest?

    • Bryan Glynn says:

      Yep, a few people regularly do that – just have them make a note with your info on the order sheet!

      • lostonmonday says:

        I will enter 4 sticks for you, just pick which ones you want from the lotto #10 list and I’ll mail em in for ya’ as soon as they get here. Thanks for your service!

        • Sinsandman says:

          Wow Lost…I am humbled at your offer. I can’t see the videos to know what was on the list, however, I am on a government computer lol. But, I personally entered a few Cameroon Nubs and a Rocky Conny. So maybe 1 of each of those…a 5 Vegas Cask and a Rocky Edge Conny?

          • Sinsandman says:

            Let me know if those other two were on the list. If not, any will suffice. Again, thank you.

          • lostonmonday says:

            I don’t remember seeing a Cask Strength, but I’ll pick out something nice. If it works for Bryan, I’ll put your forum name on the entry form, so if you win you can email him your info. That way we don’t have to swap our info over the “comments”.

          • lostonmonday says:

            My wife called and said the mail lady just dropped off a box, so I’m hoping the sticks are in! I’ll mail in your entry tomorrow if it’s them. Good luck, and I hope you win; after all, I think for roasting, freezing, repeat in the sandbox, you should have a ton of tasty cigars waiting for you at home. Thanks again for your service!!!

        • Boucher207 says:

          Great offer!!

        • Craig says:

          Bravo LostonMonday !!! A true gentleman and a brother of the leaf !!!!!

          • Sinsandman says:

            Sounds great Lost. Again, thank you very much. Your act of kindness will not be forgotten.

    • Sinsandman says:

      Hey Lost. Just saw your comment about the package. Again, I thank you. As well as thank you for your understanding of how bad it sucks out here lmao.

    The Tatuaje is the Frank Jr

  3. Griff says:

    Wow, two Decades, an Illusione and a Tat. Great start.

  4. stevenknisley says:

    I wanna enter really bad. That’s a great start

  5. vscarpine says:

    Great start to lotto #11

  6. MorganGeo says:

    I always look forward to these updates. Love me some cigars!

  7. ctigers15 says:

    That’s a lot of Gurkhas, I want the tatuaje.

  8. Romel says:

    Every lottery brings more and more great sticks. Im definitely sending an entry .

  9. JJO says:

    Thanks for the edit at the top, Bryan! It’s getting discouraging.

  10. david121 says:

    the rules clearly state no POS smokes people.. why are you sending in Gurkhas?
    thanks for the update Bryan

    • USA2ndAmendment says:

      You may not like Gurkhas, but there are a lot of people that do, including me. They are not POS sticks, they are pretty popular, and definitely not the cheapest stick on the block. If you don’t like them, then don’t smoke them. There are some sticks in there that I don’t like, but that doesn’t mean that they are a POS, or that I am not going to enter the lottery.

    • MaxDuo says:

      Gurkha’s aren’t really “POS smokes.” I’m not a big fan of them overall, but they do have some great sticks.

      POS sticks = mostly $2 and under sticks, not ones that many people dislike overall.

      The main problem is just the fact that there are SO many of them in it.

  11. phaedron says:

    Yay, I saw my sticks! And I’m sure glad I didn’t send Gurkhas this time… I confess I have in the past.

  12. swj045 says:

    one gurkha,two gurkha,three gurkha more would have been the end of a great lottery.you did good Bryan,keep a class act lottery a class act..

  13. Sugarmaker67 says:

    People will push the limit when ever they can. If they smoke a lesser stick they won’t mind getting their cheap stick back.

    I agree, there needs to be a Minimum MSRP per stick rule. that will keep the cheapskates away or at least honest.

    • JJO says:

      I’m not sure the minimum MSRP will work with Gurkhas, since their’s are up in the stratosphere, even for the duds that actually sell for super-cheap prices. Same goes for some of the CI exclusives. People just need to play fair and realize that most people on this site don’t want to see a prize loaded with cheap, mediocre sticks when others are doing their best to keep the quality level and diversity up.

  14. Sugarmaker67 says:

    I don’t have a problem with a gurkha here and there, but 1/2 the lottery is excessive.

  15. USA2ndAmendment says:

    I see my cigars! Hopefully I will get them back…as well as all those other great sticks on the table! What a great start…drooling :)

  16. Brandonsr81 says:

    I’m going to get some sticks ready to send in.

  17. Chris Tivnan says:

    Why is this not obvious?
    Do you see any comments that say “wow I want that Gurkha!” No. It’s wow nice Decade or nice tatuaje because these are good brands. All you’re doing is making those of us mad who’ve entered every lottery four sticks at a time, mad. And guess what, once the small minority of us do quit sending in quality sticks because of this unfairness, then it’ll be. Jeez there’s no good sticks this time around. The guys who aren’t sending in pos have been with Bryan since the beginning .
    Sorry for the rant, but this isn’t that difficult.

  18. Boucher207 says:

    BRYAN, i have a quick question about the Heartfelt Humibeads, i purchased their cylidrical 70% tube of beads which for my 50count humidor should be way more than i need. ive “charged” the beads but for some reason i cannot seem to get the humidor above 68% without adding a humipack in there which then brings it to 72%. Do you think this is still an acceptable way to humidify my sticks or should i look into something else? Ive heard guys talk about do what ever works but i feel that the beads i picked up should be doing the job all on their own. Any suggestions?

    As usual, this is open to anyone who wants to suggest anything.

    Thanks Guys

    • Bryan Glynn says:

      There is always a +/- factor and I don’t know how accurate your gauge is. If they smoke fine with just the beads, what problem are you trying to solve?

      • Boucher207 says:

        Haha i guess there is really no problem, they are all smoking very nicely. I have a digital guage because my analog one would not go about 60% I guess im just stuck on a number. Anyways, i guess your right, if they smoke fine, dont worry.

        Thanks again!

        • jpculp57 says:

          Move your hygrometer around and I’ll bet you will find the humidity is different all over your humidor. I use a large Xicar humidifier with gel beads in my small humidor that currently has 32 sticks and the humidity is at 74% on the lid, but only 70% where the cigars sit. In my large humidor with over 1000 sticks I have 2 of the same Xicar humidifiers and that one is at 68% on the lid, 70% if I put the hygrometer on the cigars and a dry 60% at the bottom of the humidor. The moral of the story is that you just need to let your cigars rest for a few months and then smoke 1 and if it smokes like you want it then all should be good. Also, the temperature around your humidor will make a HUGE difference in humidity.

  19. Jared says:

    Ok, maybe want to calm down a notch, guys. Definitely don’t want this to become the Gurkha Mega-pack, because the idea here is to get a big variety of great sticks, but suggesting that somehow now we need a price min? Or maybe there needs to be a verified CA rating 90 or higher? Or some other snobby “You don’t know cigars, *I* know cigars!” ridiculousness? None of which, of course, will work. I have a pair of Sancho Panza Glorioso that I plan to send in, dollar-wise pretty dang cheap, CA 92 rated, and I absolutely love them. What then? Got a couple of Joya del Jefe, too. Those AREN’T being sent. Because they’re cheap in all senses of the term. Gurkha Legend, 90 rated. Gurkha Assassin, 89 rated, Gurkha Cellar Reserve, 90 rated, heck even the Spec Ops is 87 rated, and reviewed fairly well right here on CO! If you don’t like them, oh well! But saying that somehow people are trying to rip everyone off by sending them, that’s a huge stretch. Everyone just calm down and enjoy the spirit of the contest. Otherwise, boys and girls, people aren’t going to want to play with you, and the newbie who may have just sent in a pair of Gurkhas because they were highly touted and the best thing they had in their newbie stash, who you just ripped to shreds, is going to not come back. Loosen up, lighten up, and let’s just everyone be reasonable, shall we?

    • JJO says:

      Are you suggesting that the guy who sends in $12-15 worth of entries is being fair to the one who spent %25-$30+ on his? If so, I respectfully disagree. I have a bunch of cheaper smokes that I enjoy and have been well reviewed, but won’t be sending them in because I don’t see it as a viable trade-off for the person who spent far more. In all fairness, they should at least be balanced out with something more substantial. And hey, I like the Sancho Panzas too, but they don’t really fall into that “cheap” category.

      As for the Gurkhas, I don’t mind a modest amount, and I always expect to see some in there, but the ones you mention are few and far between compared to the sheer volume of the cheap bundled and sampled exclusives that we’re seeing and that is disturbing.

      As you said, let’s be reasonable and I agree, but the street runs both ways. Newbie or not, the same rules and intent should apply to all. When Bryan himself threatens to amend the rules, you know things are starting to get out of hand.

      • Jared says:

        Not at all! I’m not saying it’s ok to go on the cheap if you think you can get away with it, because that, as I said, betrays the spirit of the contest. But if I send in something I really love, and it’s a really good stick, both to me and, for the sake of the contest, to respected reviewers (like this site, CA, etc.), does it matter if I spent retail, got it on sale, in a free sampler pack, or as a gift? If I said, “Wow great contest, and I got this Cohiba Red Dot Robusto and this Torano Exodus Silver in a sampler pack, those are good, I’ll send those in”, am I screwing everyone? No, I just sent in two quality sticks for entry that will be enjoyed by whoever wins. I just think we can’t read brains and see motive through the screen, so saying, “Well you didn’t spend enough so I got screwed!” is NOT the same as saying “Well you sent in a third rate dog rocket so I got screwed!”. That Hoyo Excalibur can be gotten pretty dang cheap, but did anyone gripe about it? Not at all, because they’re tasty, fairly highly rated, and are a well respected brand. Considering what I’d have to pay at the B&M for a Gurkha, or even online on the CI Deal of the Day in a box, saying they shouldn’t count, as some have done, is ridiculous. However, I 100% agree that if a huge percentage of the pot is Gurkha, that is contrary to the point of the game, which is to win a bunch of different good sticks. If I threw in for a premium super-mega-variety pack and got 100 Macanudos instead, I’d still have a bunch of great sticks, but I’d still feel like somebody missed the point, regardless of what was paid out of pocket. I understand your point completely. I just don’t agree :) It ain’t about $$$, it’s about the quality of the stick in the entry. Don’t make me send those Joya del Jefes.

        • JJO says:

          No, I’m not talking about actual outlay, I’m talking about value. If someone gets a great deal on a premium stick, that’s one thing, but I see that a fair amount of stuff coming in is in the $2.50-$3 or so range at everyday bundle prices (despite the inflated MSRPs), and that doesn’t jibe with the spirit of the lottery.

          And I happen to have a Swisher Sweet for you here. Your Jefes don’t scare me. lol

          • Jared says:

            I’m not saying you are, I’m saying others have talked about putting price limits on or some such silly thing. Or acting like sending in a Gurkha is like sending in a Ron Mexico. People shouldn’t send in junk. Absolutely. I just don’t equate Gurkhas with sending in junk, as apparently some others do. If they were that bad, Bryan wouldn’t keep reviewing them or speaking well of them. People just seem to being going off the deep end just because he said, “Hey, that’s a lot of Gurkhas, let’s send in something else from now on.” I worry when people go off the deep end. Things get broken. And besides, I told my wife if she ever saw me with Swishers, then I didn’t have a cigar hobby, I had a smoking problem, and she should stop me. Just don’t tell her those Joyas are cheaper. They’re Dominican, that’s all she knows. :)

  20. MaxDuo says:

    Wow uhh… people really need to calm down. While I’m not a fan of Gurkha and wouldn’t want a lottery full of them…. This whole: “OH GOD GURKHAS ARE BENEATH ME I’LL NEVER ENTER AGAIN” reaction is just dumb.

    Yes, there are a ton of them. And yes it is likely they could be from a cheap sample pack or whatever… but the problem isn’t that “Gurkha’s are in the lottery” just the fact that so many are being sent in.

    The: “I’m above these cigars and never want to enter again,” thing is just a dumb reaction to get all up in arms about.

    Not that I disagree that there should be less Gurkha’s…. just… the reaction is a bit silly. People do need to send in more variety, even if they don’t know a lot and have just seen tons of praise for Gurkha’s.

    • JJO says:

      I guess you haven’t been playing long enough to understand the irritation. ;) The overall quality and variety used to be much better, making it much more enjoyable for all.

      • MaxDuo says:

        Oh, it’s not that I don’t understand. I’m not a huge fan of Gurkha’s. I just find it a bit much that everyone is basically : “Gurkas are garbage cigars don’t send in junk.” Yeah…. Some do suck. They are over priced and you get them in sampler packs for cheap at times. But still you can see them priced at $6-$50. Heck one of the ones sent in is in Bryan’s top 10 favorite cigars.

        I agree there are too many Gurkha’s… but it’s still a ton of free cigars and not all Gurkha’s are bad. It’s just… how would one police it without just saying: “Never send in Gurkhas even if they are good ones” and setting up a ton of rules? I know Bryan doesn’t want to and I hope it doesn’t get forced as that would be annoying… but still it’s almost ready to read more like a gamefaqs forum :P

        • JJO says:

          Maybe it should be said that the Gurkhas are a symptom, not the true problem. The problem is people trying to get by with the least they can spend and not go out of their way to play. The Gurkhas are just an easy get because they are in so many cheap samplers and dump-off sales, so they show up in droves. Just like a lot of the CI exclusives.

          • Jared says:

            Ok, this I can understand, if you say, “Compared to past games”. And if the increase in the Gurkha supply is truly indicative of an overwhelming run of cheapness, then I agree, that sucks. On the other hand, could it be that due to the overwhelming number of new visitors, followers, and members around here, many or all of which are new to cigars, and the places they get their cigars pass out Gurkhas like candy and EVERY SINGLE online retailer touts them as “The Rolls Royce of Boutique Cigars”, that these newbies possibly think they’re sending in something good? Yes, that’s me, Devil’s Advocate, though not remotely as attractive as either Keanu Reeves or Al Pacino. Or Charlize Theron. Some folks may be trying to slide. Some may simply just not know that Gurkhas aren’t as spectacular as the online car salesmen tell them they are.

        • Jared says:

          Hahaha! Gamefaqs forum! That’s awesome!

  21. Chris Tivnan says:

    Jared I’ve spent over $150 on sending cigars into this lottery since the beginning.
    My choice? Yes. But I want to give people what I think would be a great smoke and awesome to win.
    So you can say nobody wants to play with you and make snide comments all you want, but some of us have done our parts. Which I’m sure you have. But you can see how it’s irritating to some who are just getting by on cheap sticks to try and win rather than sending in something that will be memorable for the person that wins. After all that was the point of the lottery in the beginning.
    Go back and watch the videos 4 pack of Tempus after 4 pack of Tempus. Rocky after rocky.

    Calm down? Sure. But think about it from someone else’s perspective first. I by no means have a lot of money. I’m putting myself through college and work third shift. So when I feel like someone is bending the rules for selfish reasons and not in it to improve others smoking experiences, it makes me a little mad.

    • Jared says:

      I’m not trying to be snide at all. I’m saying that automatically ripping people for sending in Gurkhas because you automatically assume they’re doing it out of deal-of-the-day sampler packs is ridiculous. What if they’re sending their favorite? I didn’t see too many CI exclusives in there, those are high rated sticks. Be mad at the dude last time who sent in that Mark Twain. Saying you’ve “Done your part” says to me, “Get out of here, newbie.” I will in NO way deny that some are trying to skate, because some (again Mark Twain) obviously are, and they shouldn’t get to play. Totally agreed. But no one complained about the Pinar del Rio, which I can go find right now for $4 a stick in a bundle. I can go get a box of Oliva Serie V or La Gloria Serie R in a box for $6 a stick, Diesel Unlimiteds for $4 each, I can’t imagine too many feeling I’m crewing anyone or trying to cheap out if I only send in $12 worth of any of those. It’s about the quality of the sticks. 100%. Not how much I paid for them, or how I got them. You can’t tell someone’s intent from the fact that they sent in a Gurkha, nor can you tell if they got it as a freebie giveaway or if they bought a box because they love them.

      • Chris Tivnan says:

        I think Gurkha’s are taking the heat and that’s my fault. I meant crap cheaper stuff in general.
        I’m not trying to be anyone’s enemy here. It’s just that this website is a whole lot different than it used to be. And some stuff I’m seeing has kind of built up. Sorry if I pissed anyone off. But I still stand behind my opinion.

        • Jared says:

          Like I said, we are in total agreement, don’t send junk. I haven’t been here long to see, like you mentioned, if there has been a general decline in the quality of submissions. If so, I’d be getting frustrated too. I’d personally much rather send “something I think is good” than, “whatever I’ve got on hand that I won’t miss”. I notice from some posts that some guys are purchasing things specifically for the contest. That’s pretty cool. But I don’t have the cash on hand or a tolerant enough wife that would let me do that, so I would pick something good from my current stash, if I had anything that I thought qualified.

          If nothing else, look at it from this point – there are a LOT of new people on here (myself included), and if they’re new here, they may be new to cigars in general (myself included), and every site they are buying from is pushing Gurkha to be the hot thing, the “Rolls Royce”, so maybe they just don’t know that, while decent sticks, they’re kind like an iPod – nice and all, but everyone’s got one, so I’m not as impressed anymore. If this is the case, they’ll learn, give them time, and they’ll understand everyone has them and to try to be a little more thoughtful and creative.

          No enemies, no pissed off. Aside from my own house, the most relaxed and welcome I’ve ever felt was at the cigar lounge, and this is like my online work cigar lounge! I get your point, and I think your point and mine is the same – send good quality sticks, we just reacted differently. The site IS different, because there’s LOTS more people on, and you’re maybe feeling here like I felt about Metallica in the late 90′s. Hopefully what happened to them doesn’t happen here :) I love it here, and, as a cigar newb, I always check a stick here before I read reviews anywhere else, and people actually respond thoughtfully to comments! It’s all cool. Enjoy your Friday. Got a Partagas 1845 at home waiting to kick off my weekend.

          • Chris Tivnan says:

            Okay well glad we could agree. :) I just got a tad frustrated yesterday with some family stuff and decided to vent on here. Maybe a bit much. But I was trying to just make a point.

  22. AngSolo says:

    Hey that Cellar Reserve isn’t cheap and Cigar Journal gave it a 97 rating and top cigar of the year. I’ve had a few not bad not great prob not worth the price but I’d smoke another if given to me.

  23. MR_EXPRESS says:

    Yeah, well, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.

  24. garlar10 says:

    hahaha, poor gurkaah. When I have friends over they are usually the first cigars are try to give away.

  25. eric.hanson says:

    This is looking like an amazing stash so far, lots of great sticks! Whoever wins this one will be very lucky!

  26. CigarStrawn says:

    My B&M just had a big Gurkha event yesterday (of course, I couldn’t go due to work) but from what I heard a lot of people showed up and it was a hit. My point is Gurkha is a popular brand. Some of their line aren’t my first picks but I do enjoy a lot of them. I picked up a Cellar Reserve and I haven’t tried it yet but I’m looking forward to it.

    • SLCigarClassy101 says:

      The only problem with that is for most of the lotteries, more than 50% of the entries ARE Gurkhas and while they MAY be a popular brand, some people might feel a bit cheated to have so many Gurkhas and few other brands. Variety is the spice of life and the same could be said for cigars. Besides, wouldn’t you find a prize lottery more interesting if you could win a number of things than say a lot of one thing? Just food for thought.

      • CigarStrawn says:

        You could say it’s a variety of Gurkhas. :-p I agree that when a lot of one brand outnumbers the others some people would feel cheated. I’m trying to make the point that maybe the folks who entered the Gurkhas entered them because they enjoy Gurkhas. Perhaps a new variety rule can be created that when one type of brand starts flooding the contest a cut off can occur and a request for different brands can be made? I haven’t sent in my entries yet but now that I see there’s a lot of Gurkhas I’ll send in something different.

  27. DairyLandCigarFan414 says:

    Seems like Gurkhas are a solid 25% or so of what is sent in…never tried them and as of yet I haven’t sent in any entries for the lottery, but the variety still seems pretty fair…

    • Bryan Glynn says:

      Which is exactly the point. When a brand with less than 1% of the market is more than 25% of the entries…it’s off.

      • Jared says:

        I think only you would know, Bryan, whether these entries are repeat players who have gone cheap/lazy or if they’re coming from new members who, maybe due to the unbalanced push that Gurkha gets from the retailers, thought they were giving something awesome, and since those retailers are handing those Gurkhas out like candy, they had a whole heck of a lot of them on hand to send in. So, lots of new entrants, or the usual suspects?

        • Bryan Glynn says:

          I actually have zero idea, I don’t keep track of anything like that or even notice the names when stuff comes in. I put the cigars in the appropriate bin, file the sheets and the only time I really look is to see what the winners sent in.

  28. jpculp57 says:

    This is pretty funny because I think ACID, Drew Estate Natural lines and any other flavored sticks are POS and I’d take a Gurkha over them any day and I HATE, I mean HATE Gurkha. I do however, have a friend that loves them. He’d rather smoke them than a Liga Privada No 9. He just likes that mild run of the mill tobacco taste, so if he ever sends in sticks for this lottery you can bet they will be Gurkha. As for price, I rarely pay over $8 a stick for any of my cigars unless they are OPUS X or Padron Anniversary. Even the last box of Liga No 9′s I bought only cost me $7.40 a stick because I bought them at a show with a bunch of other stuff and got so many freebies and discounts that they were a bargain. I buy a lot of stuff on Cbid so I’m only pay $2-4$ a cigar. If I only bought there I’d have no idea that the Tatuaje’s I buy were not $3.50 cigars so I’d feel that I couldn’t send them in if there were a dollar limit on the is thing.

    I’d be happy with anything, I’m not picky with Cigars. But variety is nice.

    Is the Gurkah Cellar Reserve a good one?

    I like the Edit that was added. I have been wanting to send in some entries but seeing the fact that it’s been nothing but Gurkhas holds me back.

    I’m ready to send some Liga Undercrowns, Oliva G’s and Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente for entries but I would feel cheated if I sent in some good brands and others just send in mediocre sticks for the sake of an entry.

    My 2 cents that’s all.

      I like the edit as well…. though it’s only 5 minutes. But that’s more than I’ve often needed.

      As for “nothing but Gurkhas”… that’s…. a bit of a hyperbole there!

    I suppose, If Bryan wanted to, he could separate the contest into two catagories: say “regular” and “premium”. Then he can use his discretion, and put the Tats, Illusiones, etc in the premium lottery. I suspect it would be fun to watch the premium entries then. But Bryan is probably too busy. Just a thought
