Cigar of the Month: Indian Motorcycle!

This is going to be a quick one, kids, because I'm going to try to get back on track after my hiatus. Had I been a wonderfully organized person, I would have come back on the 25th of a month, keeping the giveaways organized. Hahaha. But no. That could never happen.*

So this month, we're giving away this box of goodness, which includes a box signed by Phil Zhengi and five cigars, which, while at the Rhode Island launch of the cigar, organized and hosted by our pal Paul of Mr. J's Havana, Phil gave us to give to you:** We're giving you the basic info for now and we'll make it much more lively soon!***

Travel down to the bottom of the page for the contest entries!

Maybe one of us is a little obsessed with Lego people.
Maybe someone else who lives in this house should stop saying I have enough of them.

No, you do NOT get the Lego builder. We need him for cutting off our caps. And he only works for a little, so we can afford him.

The cigars come in two varieties:

Wrapper: Habano Ecuador
Binder: Dominican San Vincente
Filler: HVA Ligero, Nicaraguan Seco, Piloto Cubano
Country of Origin: Dominican Republic (De Los Reyes)

...and the Maduro:
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic, Central America
Strength: Medium-Full

Available sizes:
Robusto: 5 x 50
Toro: 6 x 52
Gordo: 6 x 58
Churchill: 7 1/2 x 50

Inside box reads:
Indian Motorcycles, America’s First Motorcycle Company™ and Debonaire® have joined to capture the essence of the brand’s heritage with a new ultra-premium cigar range.

*Being organized, I mean.

**And we're passing them on to you, and not keeping any, because that's the right thing to do. Plus, I hid them from Valentino so he couldn't "accidentally" smoke them.

***Probably. added later: That was an empty promise. I haven't changed anything except adding these two sentences. And this kitten picture:
Me, wondering what you're getting me for my birthday.

Ripped from the headlines!

From the timeline, actually. Facebook timeline.

The La Flor Dominicana folks said "We have some very talented rollers..."

If you don't agree whole-heartedly, then we can no longer be friends--because these cigars are amazeballs!

"Smoking has a sedative effect upon the nerves, 
and enables a man to bear the sorrows of his life 
(of which everyone has his share) 
not only decently, but dignifiedly."

"...I promised myself that if I ever I had some money 

that I would savor a cigar each day after lunch and dinner. 
This is the only resolution of my youth that I have kept, 
and the only realized ambition 
which has not brought disillusion."

“Any man who doesn't partake in cigar smoking is nothing more than a weak-willed, meandering oaf, and I would never put my lips to those of any creature, man or beast, whose lips were not fresh awash in the currents of cigar smoke.’"
