Next Monday, we will release the first edition of our newest offering, the halfwheel Newsletter. The product will be emailed the first Monday of each month and will feature a combination of new articles and a series of our favorite reviews and news stories from the prior month. It’s a clean product, and one that we are very proud of and have spent a lot of time crafting. A sneak preview is below. 

Newsletter preview


Oh, and the best part. Each month we will give away a box of cigars to one random subscriber. I would doubt that there will be a single box  given away that wouldn’t be eligible for a halfwheel review, meaning, the cigars will be rare, hard-to-find, limited edition, prereleases, etc.

The first box we are giving away is a box of Herrera Esteli Toro Especial, a cigar that isn’t out yet. The winner will be announced the morning of the publishing of the second issue, February 4, 2013.

All you need to do be registered and eligible to win a box is register below. It is of course free.

If you are subscribed to the halfwheel RSS feed via e-mail, you ARE NOT preregistered, meaning you need to register again.
