The Valentine's Day Drawing Winner Interview: Robert Abdelmessih

You have probably heard of our Valentinea��s Day promo which was initially supposed to run from February 9 to 16 (in response to the numerous requests of our customers, we have extended it to February 23). With each order you made at My-Cuban-Cigars.Com, you received a special gift, as well a chance to win a Leather Humidor.

Our Valentine's Day Drawing is over, and the results are finally in! We present you the interview with the lucky winner of the H Upmann Travel Humidor, Robert Abdelmessih:

Can you describe your thoughts when you were told you were the winner?
I had to read the email twice because initially I did not believe I had won anything, I have never been a winner of any online drawing ever in my life so to experience something like this was absolutely great fun.

How long have you been dealing with My-Cuban-Cigars Store? Why?
I have been dealing with My-Cuban-Cigars for at least 2 years but I am sure you can pull up my first purchase order and tell me better than I can remember. Regardless though, the primary reason I am a customer is due to the convenience of your business but more importantly the exceptional customer service which is what separates one brand from another in the very competitive online world in retail sales. It also doesn't hurt that every cigar box I have ever ordered has been of fantastic quality and it goes without saying, 100% authentic Cuban tobacco.

Do you remember the first cigar that you smoked? Was it Cuban?
As a youth several decades ago, my first cigar experience was with a Cuban Montecristo No. 4. It was back then and still is your recommended gateway cigar prior to entering the vast myriad of manufacturers, National brands, puros, etc. Although it has been many months since I have lit a Mote No. 4 ... whenever I do, once those Cuban tobbaco leaves touch my lips I am instantly reminded of my youth and spend the next 30-40 minutes reminiscing of days that are long gone but of feelings that burn just as intensely.

What was your most wonderful smoking cigar experience? What you were drinking? What and who surrounded you?
My most delightful smoking experience in recent memory was a trip I had taken with my brother to Sydney, Australia. We were sitting on the balcony of the world famous Cohibar in Darling Harbour smoking a Cohiba Siglo II complemented with warm glasses of Hennessy Paradis during a busy afternoon with a perpetual stream of people bustling to and fro enjoying all the great attractions of the district.

Can you just give some advice or wish something to our customers?
I leave you with this; you could be smoking a Cohiba Behike 56, a Montecristo No. 4 or if you have friends in high places you may even have the chance to smoke a Gurkha His Majesty's Reserve cigar ... but in the end it doesn't matter. The only thing that does is the company you keep and share all the memories, thoughts, and feelings that seem take on a life of their own for the next 30 - 120 minutes. Just as the taste of a great cigar lingers on your lips hours after the cigar is extinguished, so too will that smoking experience remain with you and your mates hopefully for the rest of your life.

Why not have that experience begin with a fine box of Cuban tobacco from My-Cuban-Cigars.

It's a great news, Robert, I'm really glad that you have won the prize!
And I hope such contests will take place in future because I want a humidor or at least some cigars as well

Hey Robert, you're a happy dude, do you know that? Have you already received your humidor? I hope you'll share some pics of it with us because everyone is curious about it, I'm sure.
Anyway, many congrats to you and don't forget our forum!

Hello Robert,
I'm glad someone has won the prize, and I don't envy you, at all ( ). It would be nice if you could indeed post some pics here with you standing happy near the humidor. We're all waiting for it :)

Hurray! Be happy Robert! Sorry for not noticing this whole thing here - I was out of town for some time and didn't have access to the Internet! If I only knew about the drawing, I would certainly take advantage of the opportunity to get the humidor
Greetings from US!

I bet Robert has already received the humidor and put his cigars in the humidor :) I wish he shared his photos with us (maybe, it will smooth the bitterness of the loss a little).

Congratulations, Robert! Great interview, too. I particularly liked your advice about enjoying cigar experiences with friends. Those are some very true words and I couldn't agree more!

I have to admit, I'm not only a little jealous of Robert's cigar experiences, but Hennessy Paradis is quite a drink. That's a great way to enjoy life though, and I love the last few sentences of the interview.
