Last years collaboration between Cigar Dojo and Aganorsa Leaf, Bonsai, has a pre-release during the Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival festivities. It launched nationwide shortly after through online retailer Payless Cigars & Pipes, which is run by Smoker Friendly, the same company that runs the festival. This was one of Cigar Dojo's most successful and fastest-selling collaborations to date. Now, Bonsai is returning to Smoker Friendly, and their online store paylesscigarsandpipes.com as a limited, but ongoing release.
Today Cigar Dojo and Espinosa cigars announced their latest collaboration, a cigar called Feng Shui. This marks the third release between the two companies.
Cigar Dojo and Alec & Bradley are collaborating again, this time on Dojo Chico. This project is an homage to the Topo Chico brand of sparkling mineral water that many cigar enthusiasts, Cigar Dojo and Blind Man's Puff included, have come to embrace while smoking a cigar.

If you've ever played Cigar Wars, you know that it is a fun and addictive cigar ranking system that pits one cigar against another in a quest to determine the highest ranking stick. If you have not played it before, check it out now, as it has re-built from the ground up, for a more personalized and comprehensive experience. The original Cigar Wars debuted in 2015, and the idea was simple. Choose between cigar (a) or cigar (b). representing a hypothetical the real-world scenario, where a smoker is offered one of two cigars to smoke that moment. Even if that person is not familiar with one or both choices, they will make a decision on other factors. Multiply this hypothetical scenario and its potential permutations by thousands, or tens of thousands of times, and you end up with an honest, fun, and accurate cigar ranking system.
Last year, Cigar Dojo and Aganorsa Leaf' collaborated on ReviveR, which scored a 92 in our blind review and ended up on our Top 25 cigars of the year. Now, this year, they have collaborated again on a new project, Bonsai.

"This smoke was right in my flavor wheelhouse. I enjoyed the mild and creamy start more than the darker finish, and the mid point was a perfect balance of the two. The cigar evolved enough to keep me interested, though never straying too far from its core flavor base. There was also a satisfying amount of flavorful smoke on each puff, not requiring double puffs, which was very much appreciated - would not hesitate to smoke another." -Jordan (Cigar Dojo)
