Wrapping Cigars since 2013
My passion for cigars led me to make my own.
Thanks to a gift of one of my father’s graduate students some twenty-plus years ago, my father and I shared one of my first cigars, a Brasilia (a brand I have rarely found since, and only in dry-cure varieties). Relaxing at the dining room table after dinner, Dad with his cognac and me with an iced glass of Rolling Rock beer, we admired the Corona Gorda sized cigars with their smooth, Colorado Claro shade wrappers.
When I started to work in the cigar business, one of the most frequent questions I was asked was regarding the care and storage of cigars once they left the shop: Should I remove the cellophane? Should I leave the cigars in the tubes? Can I store cigars in my refrigerator? How often should I add water to my element? How long can cigars be stored and still be smokeable? This chapter of Cigar 101 will attempt to provide answers to some of these questions and offer a variety of options to care for your own stash of cigars.
I'm powered by passion. I can't even imagine living in a world where I'm not doing something that I love from the bottom of my heart. Making cigar is an absolute pleasure everyday, I put all my love into each one of those.
Family Values. That's what I will carry on forever and teach to my kids as much as I can.
Family is what we have the most important on our lives and we have to take care of each other.
So, go see the first member of your family you will find and hug them, kiss them and tell them you love them.
What I love most in life is to celebrate things. Everything. Life. Love. People. Sunsets. Sunrises. Poetry. Airplanes. Coffee shops. I love everything and I'm so grateful for what we have. Cherish it before it's too late.
