The top 5 members with the most reviews between 12/24/2007, today, at 6:30pm EST and Friday 12/28/2007 at 6:30pm EST will be sent a free Cigar International Legends Yellow - Pepin Garcia cigar. The only catch is that a review is to be posted after you enjoy your prize to our Cigar Geeks cigar review section. Ties and conflicts will be decided by me, the prize donor. Everyone is eligable and Larry has decided to sit this one out and will not be considered as a contender, which is probably good news to other participants.

This cigar may be the best of the Legends series. If events like this work out we may enjoy the rich resource of our review library to a fuller extent.

Thanks to Paul for allowing this experiment here.

Good luck to all!

Cool contest Rack! Thanks for setting this up. My problem is I was in the habit of bidding on boxes and don't have anything I haven't already reviewed. This will inspire me to head to my B&M.

No problem - Maybe you could re-review any of the smokes that you now appreciate more or less than when you originally reviewed them. Maybe like a friendship you have discovered something you have not shared before as your relationship with a particular stick has aged. I hope this is the case and more experienced smokers are not at a deficit. However, by all means, get to the B&M.

We can edit our reviews, but not post two for the exact same cigar. It would be interesting to post a second review alongside the first, and maybe change the rating a notch.

That would be cool, maybe note on the edited review the addition of the most recent change one has detected. Would this show on the recent review portion of the home page or how could I track an edited review to add new information for contest purposes?

Thanks "newguy" for sponsoring this latest contest. With all of those good seegars you have in your humidor, I wish you were my next door neighbor. Well, I might have an unfair advantage in all off contest hoopala. I am visiting my cigar smoking brother in law this weekend and I should huff down quite a few choice smokes. Good luck to all.

I usually don't like surprises, since people seldom know what you really want, but even lousy cigars count as review credit.

Just in time, too! The weather has turned incredibly mild here in PA. This is a huge opportunity to head outside and enjoy a few smokes, before it gets cold again! Strike while the iron's hot, man!

Ok, I just received my cigar from NewGuy (Rack), and it looks great. I will probably try it Thursday night, as I leave for Nicaragua for 10 days after that for vacation, and I know you all want a review before that. So, I will enjoy Thursday night and post my review of it on same night. Thanks NewGuy!

Hey Turbo

Check out the reviews on some of the others before you dive in. I think the Pepin may raise the bar for the CI Legends series. Glad you liked it.

Glad to do it Paul. In the contest equation, there could not have a solution prize without your effort to put us on the web and continued time in maint./service to the site. I am really encouraged by the feedback posted in our review database. Cigar Geeks rocks

Pauls review continues to prove out the CI Legends Yellow-Garcia as great smoke. This thing retails for $6 a single on CI and seems like bargin. I got the whole box / 20 -for $70 $3.50 a stick! and they threw in a freebie Legends ash tray - great lookin. Now we know.

Keep those reviews coming in!

It seems following our contest action with the Yellow Legend that several other colors in the Legends line has shown up in the review datadase. Namely: Purple Red and Green. Could these "Legends" measrue up to the Royal Gold YELLOW label? I don't know but perhaps I smeell an experiment! I may need a sampler pack of Legends with my gift certificate
