I do! I do! It is no secret that I am a big cigar enthusiast but I think that it is such a sweet coincidence that a cigar manufacturer is giving away one of my favorite cars. Nub Cigars was launched in April of this year and has since then been aggressively promoting their brand. As part of this aggressive promotional strategy, they are giving away a BMW 2008 Mini Cooper S convertible!
The Cigar Aficionados recently ran this feature:
Since launching Nub cigars on April 1, Nub creator and former Oliva Tobacco Co. sales representative Sam Leccia has been touring the country, promoting the new brand and giving out one-year supplies of cigars, trips to Nicaragua to tour the Oliva factory, and a custom BMW 2008 Mini Cooper S convertible.
Leccia chose to give away the Mini Cooper because he believes the car best represents the Nub brand. â€œWeâ€™ve got a short, fat cigar. Itâ€™s something different; something unique. But itâ€™s a very serious cigar. Weâ€™re talking about a well-cured, well-aged tobacco,â€ said Leccia. â€œWe needed to give something away that was unique.â€
Indeed, short and fat is not something that automatically comes to mind when thinking of high quality cigars. As a matter of fact, most people I know prefer fat and long cigars but from what I hear about Nub cigars, they can hold their own among the more traditional brands! If I were given the chance to win that Mini Cooper, I wouldnâ€™t hesitate to get my hands on some Nubs â€“ would you?
