Canimao Robusto Extra + CONTEST!

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

Box2I was at a Canimao event last month, and got to chill with the President and CEO of the company, Mel Gonzalez. His master blender Vincente Garcia was there as well, and he rolled cigars all night.

Mel really made us pay attention to the flavors in the cigars we smoked that night and demanded our feedback. It was great to see that he wasn’t just there to push product. He displayed a passion for his small boutique cigar company that was refreshing.

This gave me the idea of reviewing the Robusto Extra, and giving away a box on this site. Mel was all for it. He signed a box immediately and donated it for the raffle.

To enter, you have to be at least 18 years of age, and you can only enter once. Simply leave a comment here on this post. Please leave valid contact info, or I won’t be able to contact you if you win. Your email address will be kept confidential.

That’s it! In a couple weeks, a random winner will be drawn. And let’s not forget to thank Mel and Canimao for generously sponsoring this contest!

In the mean time, check out what Ed and I thought of the Canimao Robusto Extra in the latest installment of The Ed  & Tom Show. This video runs 22 minutes.

Mark your calendars now! Canimao will be at St.Pete Pipe & Cigars on Friday, October 9th, from 6PM to 9PM. Mel Gonzalez, the President and CEO, will be attending. For more info, see Ed’s website.
