Longest Ash Contest Tour Now Under Way

CA Staff
Posted: December 15, 2011

The next time you’re smoking a H. Upmann cigar, be wary of how you ash because you could end up being featured within the pages of Cigar Aficionado.

H. Upmann and Cigar Aficionado Magazine have teamed up to create a contest where a photograph of your long, unbroken ash could land you two tickets to your choice of either the New York or Las Vegas Big Smokes.

In addition, the winner will be featured in an advertisement that runs in Cigar Aficionado magazine, plus receive a box of H. Upmann cigars and a one-year subscription to Cigar Aficionado.

Retailers all over the United States are participating by hosting events in which attendees receives an H. Upmann 1844 Reserve cigar, t-shirts, paper rulers to measure the ash and a special golf tool.

Here is a partial listing of retailers participating in the contest. To enter, check out or follow on Twitter @LongestAsh.

This is a fun contest. My longest ash has probably been around 2.5 inches.
