Bienvenido, loyal reader. Please join Bruce and Mary as they make their weekly visit to El Gato Gordo, their cigar shop. BTW: For some reason vids don’t embed on this platform, so go here, our original blogsite, for this post including a fun vid.
Rogelio and I are in the humidor and he is selecting lo mismo, the usual for us, a local blend. Rogelio is a master of the cigar trade and loves to teach, from the basics of how to properly smoke a cigar to spotting knock-offs. Interestingly, on a trip to Cuba, he said there were knock-offs galore…there! Often we bring friends to Rogelio for gift cigars for back home. After chatting with them he fills their needs and fits their budget. The guitar? One of Rogelio’s many fans is teaching him how to play.
Romeo y Julietas and many, many other brands.
Rogelio is explaining a new offering coming this spring: For serious cigar smokers he will, after an interview, roll your blend into a tiny test cigar and if it smokes the way you like, he will have a whole box of your special custom blend, including your choice of three capas, wrappers, rolled for you.
Thanks for visiting, gentle reader. Bruce and Mary invite any and all comentarios on this or any subject. Hasta proximo Domingo!
