Stogie Guys Special: New Email Newsletter & Cigar Giveaway

6 May 2009

This month marks’s three-year anniversary. We’re celebrating this milestone by launching a new free service for our readers and giving away a whole bunch of amazing cigar prizes.

Way back in May 2006, the site—now one of the world’s most popular online cigar magazines—started when to two coworkers and friends decided to share their hobby and passion with interested cigar enthusiasts. Since then, we’ve grown from a handful of visitors to hundreds of thousands. We’ve broken news, interviewed leaders in the cigar industry, reviewed hundreds of stogies, and been fortunate enough to add other writers who are as passionate about cigars as we are.

As we approach three years of daily publishing (over 1,000 articles to date), we’re launching a new free email newsletter for our loyal readers. Think of it as the companion reader.

We’ll be using this exciting new vehicle to provide occasional email newsletters (we promise not to bombard your inbox) with exclusive content. We’ll be including aging reports, cigar rankings, tips, answering readers’ questions, and more.

And, just for signing up, we’ll be giving away cigars…lots of amazing cigars!

Over the next few months we’ve got the following prizes lined up to celebrate our third anniversary (Special thanks to all of the generous manufacturers who are making this incredible giveaway possible):

• A Savoy humidor signed by baseball legend Luis Tiant, filled with 23 El Tiante Corojo cigars (provided by El Tiante Cigars)

• A box of Mi Barrio Acere Cigars (provided by EO Brands)

• A box of CAO LX2 Lanceros (provided by CAO Cigars)

• A box of Cuban Crafters Miami Medina 1959 Cigars (provided by Cuban Crafters)

• A box of Carlos Toraño Tribute 2008 Robustos (provided by Toraño Cigars)

• A box of Cubao No. 3 Lanceros (provided by EO Brands)

• A box of Cuban Crafters Tuxedo Churchills (provided by Cuban Crafters)

• A box of EO 601 Red Toros (provided by EO Brands)

• A Toraño Exodus Seleccion Exclusiva Sampler (provided by Toraño Cigars)

• A CAO black “O” ashtray and a Lotus T3 table lighter (provided by CAO Cigars)

Starting May 15, the the third anniversary of our official launch, we’ll be giving away one prize a week for a month. After that, we’ll pick one winner each month. For a chance to win, all you have to do is sign up for our email newsletter by providing your email and first name (because we consider our readers our friends and we want to call you by your name): email newsletter

After you sign up, you’ll need to confirm your subscription before you are automatically entered to win these great prizes. (See the full contest fine print here.) Please note that we’ll never share your email with anyone else and, if for some reason you want to stop receiving emails from us, you’ll find an unsubscribe link in every email (you just won’t be eligible to win any of the great prizes).

    Hey guys,

    Congrats on the 3 years. Your site is a daily read for me. I appreciate the diversity of reviews on both cigars & spirits… but also the accessories & news. The Friday sampler is a welcome read come end of the week. Your donations for giveaways shows how the industry (along with us) views you in a positive light.

    Ok, enough mushy talk. :) How about some links to Flick or Google Pics for cigar reviews for the newsletter? Maybe brand reviews where you sample and review an entire line (ex: all DPG brand cigars in a similar size? Blue, White, Black, Red in Belicoso)?

    Thanks more than anything for the newsletter! (The prizes are bloody neat, mind ye.)

    I'm a new reader to the site but really appreciate the reviews and discussion. I'm a budding cigar enthusiast and hope to add to the reviews as I can.

    Woo hoo! Newbie to the brotherhood–and, hence, to this site. Thanks for the newsletter!

    Great idea and congrats on making it to 3 years. That is rare in the blog business.

    Hey guys, got my first newsletter from you guys today and found it really great (as a novice I am). In it you rated some brands that I've been interested in lately (Cubao, Don Pepin Garcia and CAO primarily). I'd love to see a small line-up of some robusto's that range from $8 – $12 a stick to give me a little more direction. Also, perhaps a quick overview on how to help identify flavoring over tones (from the first light, through the middly burn and finishing)..???

    Thanks again for your continued writings.

    How many stories connected directly with a cigar. Very interesting to watch this, because the most famous people in history smoked it up.
